Today Is The First Day...Of The Rest Of Your Life

As a medium....those final hours were one of celebration.  I watch him transition slowly from his body, to a world he was now welcoming.  Excited.   I told everyone who was with me during his final daya  " Im calm...happy...he is finally transitioning...rhat body you see is just a shell,  he is finally ready."

HI.  I was diagnosed in February, 2018, with Ovarian ca.  I have had 4 rounds of chemo.  I couldn’t do rounds 5 & 6 due to low platelet count.  I recently had laparoscopic surgery:  Uterus, Ovaries, Fallopian Tubes, Hysterectomy and Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy and found out that I am STAGE ypT3cNX, FIGO, IIIc.  I am 59 years old.  I’m not quite sure what thi all means, do I have ovarian ca or peritonearl ca?

I am being treated at Mass General Hospital and will be going for more chemo soon.

Radiation Therapy Consult

I feel like this is more of a journal than a blog or are they pretty much the same thing? I’ve never had nor followed a blog. This morning I woke up feeling blah, like I could barely will myself to move. I think that just the thought of starting another cancer battle makes me feel unmotivated to do anything else but I think if I give in to that then it becomes a part of like I guess where it transfers to me even being unmotivated to continue with my cancer treatment, especially when it gets hard because I know from experience that it does.

Round 2 - Follow-up

So the last few days have been eye opening. I was feeling physically weak on Saturday as I went to pick up my race packet for my half marathon on Sunday, like, “Can I really do this?” My left shoulder (Same side as where the cancerous lymph nodes were found) was hurting and everything. I had to somehow prove that I still had some control over my body so I took two Advil’s and did it anyway and it was amazing. The weather was nice, not too hot, the other runners were friendly, and that long stretch of beach did not feel like walking through the desert for months with no water.

Momma's Story

I like to see what's coming. To plan for each step. With Esophageal Cancer that's just not a possibility.

Mom had trouble swallowing in the Spring of 2017. She had two choking episodes and then had her first scope. Waiting for the results was the worst and of course, over a weekend. Mom was diagnosed with Stage 3B Esophageal Cancer (squamous cell).

Sometimes God Decides To Make You Stronger

  I remember my Captain in our Fire Department smiling at me after a grueling training.  He would say  "  What doesnt kill ya...will make you stronger"

My Reply:   " Please...just kill me."


I prayed and prayed today would be the last day. God would take him home.


After five hours of slumber....which I was certain to be his final breathes....he awoke asking to be taken to the bathroom.

Never Crash A Spirit Party

   I spoke with the Chaplain and Social worker about my skills as a Medium...being able to help many people by contacting their loved ones on the other side.


  To my surprise...they thought this normal, no surprise.....I could have been telling them what I had for dinner last night, and it would have resulted in the same expression.
