Thursday April 28
It’s rainy again. I’m back at the clinic. This morning I had my lampadina. Feeling great. Lots of energy.
Mary and I spent the evening at the Caracalla Spa. It was way less crowded than in the day time. I’ve been trying to convince her to go to Friederichbach spa with me (only women on Thursday), but I’m not sure she is going for it! No clothes allowed.
This morning I had 2 shots in the butt (stem cells) and ozone therapy. My vein collapsed 1/2 way through the ozone treatment and Mariann asked me if I was Catholic. I said, “Why? Are you going to give me my last rites? She said, “No, if you are Jehovahs Witness we can’t restart the IV in the other arm”.
So we had to call Dr Sommer to try to get another IV deep in a vein in my other arm (which I’m not really suppose to use because I have no lymph nodes there due to a mastectomy). It worked. I’m now having Vitamin B17 (amygdalin) and C therapy.
I told NDr Christina I had a vegan chocolate bar for her, but only if she got the IV in my arm right the first time. She was unhappy my vein collapsed. She really wanted the chocolate bar (luckily I had 2 chocolate bars in my purse, one for her and one for Dr Sommer too).
At least I didn’t have to get stabbed nine times in one day like last week. The big bruise on my hand has gone away after using some type of wound healing cream called Traumeel. It works so well, I bought it at a pharmacy so I could use it at home.
So I got my test results on Tuesday. Everything appears good at this time. My energy is up. My brain/hypothalamus is now working, however my pituitary gland is still struggling a bit. The cancer is dormant. My immune system is operating at 80%. And I need to detox (it’s at 38%, down from 45% when I came). So I’m getting some medicine to take home with me to help me with that, plus injections because my lymph node system is not up to snuff either. Otherwise, I think I’m doing really well.
Don’t think I’m going to tell my oncologist I’m here in Germany again. I don’t need the added stress. Dr Sommer told me it would not be necessary to get tested at home for another 6-9 months. That’s good enough for me.
I’m suppose to be arriving in Canada on Saturday night, but apparently some of the airport workers are on strike yesterday and today. Good thing I have insurance! They may be footing the bill for food and accommodations if I need to stay longer!
After my treatment tomorrow morning, Mary is making me breakfast and then we are heading to Frankfurt. I went to pick up the rental car on the side of the road near a castle where our apartment landlord said it was free. Well guess what? It wasn’t free. I got not one but two parking tickets. Mary said it was too bad I have to come back, otherwise we could just not pay them!
On the bright side, at least they didn’t tow us. I would have had to phone up the rental car company and tell them it was stolen and a darn good thing I paid $600 extra for car insurance!
Finally got to see the Baden Baden Roman Ruins yesterday. See pics below. This is where Roman Soldiers set up shop to recuperate in the healing thermal waters.
