Sorry I haven't posted much

It doesn't mean I don't think of you all, or thank God for all of you. I've just been overwhelmed with . . . everything. A lot of good things are happening with my book YAHSHUA'S BRIDGE which is now available. So, I've been busy with that. But also with doc appointments and just feeling tired. I'm looking forward to seeing Dr. Brown again. I was my "old self" when he treated me, and I want to feel good again.

I finished radiation a week ago Tuesday, and it completely wiped me out. I had yucky side-effects when I wasn't supposed to have any--I won't give you the details, e-hem. This tells me that chemo is NOT a good idea since it would be 5 times worse. Thankfully, my doc hasn't brought up chemo--maybe because I already told him "NO WAY, I don't want to do it" when he did bring it up (I wasn't that harsh; but I was pretty clear about it via our nurse coordinator).

Anyway, it's nice to know I can actually "read my body." I told him before the radiation that I really didn't think I could handle the chemo, or recover from it. And after seeing how I've reacted to radiation, I know I was right. If I wasn't supposed to have any side-effects from the radiation, and the chemo is worse, then there's no way I can handle chemo right now.

I should be going to see Dr. Brown at the end of this week or the beginning of next. He's supposed to call tomorrow morning.

Anyway, enough about that.

I wanted to write to you all about crying myself to sleep (lol, an even "better topic!"). But that usually occurred when I was supposed to be TRYING to go to sleep. So, I didn't get up to write. I just can't count how often I've cried myself to sleep. It amazes me. There were other things I wanted to write about, but I've just been too tired. And I'm tired now, so I think I'm gonna end.

    Sand, I hope we can get together for another session of laughing our heads off... best medicine, right? Let me know what the best way is to make that happen... if you want. Love you. Jen

  2. Sandi, Ron and I just watched this movie at the health food store. *See below. I highly recommend you see it. I've been learning so much about health, we really should talk. I would love to hear all that you are doing and compare notes with what we both have been learning. We are trying to pull together some encouragement to send your way.

    Love you,


    "Film: Burzynski The Movie –
    Cancer is Serious Business*:"

    DATE: Thurs., Nov. 3, 6pm

    FEE: Complimentary

    Location: Pilgrim’s Health Education Center

    "DESCRIPTION: Burzynski, the Movie is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing, legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history. This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons."

    "Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough."

  3. Jen, I'd love to get together with you. Maybe we can do lunch sometime? I just don't know when right now because I might be leaving for AZ. Still waiting to hear from the doc. :-)

    Tami, yes, we know all about Dr. Burzynski. Karsten has been doing a lot of research on docs. We tried talking to my oncologist about it, but he calls them all quacks. Doesn't mean we believe him. It'd be great to see you guys so we could talk. I'll let you all know when I know something. Feels like things are moving so slow. sigh But it's all in God's hands. :-)

  4. Amen, He's got the whole world in His hands. I'm really singing it to myself right now out loud. I just thought you all should know =)

  5. First of all I just want to say that you are incredibly gifted and talented! I am such a picky reader and your book, The Master's Wall, was incredible! You have such a gift. I am sorry about your health...I will be praying for you! Thanks for following God's heart and writing books that point people to Christ.

  6. Sandi, You and your family are in my prayers. I know I'm just a stranger, so I hope that doesn't creep you out. I hope it helps in some way to know people who only know you through your writing care about the hand behind the pen as well. God Bless You.

    Ruth Hansen

  7. Sandi, may God continue to give strength to you to win this fight.
    I would like to hear from Don Turner.
    that beautiful family you have.
    I want to buy your book, and I will.
    miss you
