Thanks for the prayers...and keep them coming!

Friday, September 23, 2011

Thanks for all of your prayers! I just returned home from the second trip to Mayo Clinic with my parents. My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma, more specifically Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, and we now have more answers. A bone marrow biopsy and many, many tubes of blood and being part of a clinical trial are part of what my Mom has and is experiencing. It looks like it will be a bumpy road, but she has put her trust in a wonderful doctor who has spent his career in studying lymphoma/leukemia. One of the things that surprised me, is the doctor's recommendation to drink green tea and eat red grapes, to help reduce internal inflammation. I am so glad to see "natural" foods being used to aid in healthcare!

Thanks again for all of your thoughts, prayers and kind words. They mean more than I can ever tell you.

    Glad there is a plan and she has a great doctor.

    Here is a nutritionist that I saw once that tailors plans to work with specific health conditions. Shs is known at the bean lady. She does phone consults so you don't have to drive to see her.

    Good luck
