Today’s been a beautiful day. My neighbor in the cul-de-sac , Fran Buddle, came over and cleaned for several hours, and then took me to lunch! I am so spoiled!
I went to my regular doctor (DO), and reviewed the blood tests from two weeks ago. He said most everything is looking better than last time, but my inflammation response is very high. (puts me at risk for cardiac issues). It’s not a surprise that my inflammation response is very high–fighting a nasty disease, but I need to start taking fish oil again to help bring inflammation down. He recommended krill fish oil rather than salmon because there will be less environmental toxins. He also recommended going “green” in all my “personal care” products like shampoos, lotions, cosmetics–anything that goes on the skin. He said in Europe they take all the nasty chemicals out, but the US doesn’t demand it, so they leave the carcinogens in there. I’m so grateful for modern medicine and caring doctors. We are doing this!
I know God has inspired my friends and neighbors in how best to help me through this, and I am so grateful for that inspiration. I have received an outpouring of love, which I seem to have a greater need for. So today I share a scripture I’m not sure if I’ve shared before, but it brings me comfort and I do feel “encircled in the arms of His love.”—“Therefore treasure up these words in thy heart. Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love.” D&C 6:20
I seem to have increased capacity to love as well as increased demand, so I express my sincere love for each of you– really, I mean it! Love, Melanie
