Celeste Update – Cancer Free at Last!

celestialmusingsblog:

Thank you so much Therese and Trekkerscrapbook, you are so right the bills that insurance doesn’t cover are enormous and the financial stress is of course, still there big time. All the therapies must be continued as does the mainstream medicine. Next procedure comes up in October which is to surgically, under anesthesia remove the IVC filter which protects me from the possibility that my blood clots could migrate. I so appreciate every dollar that has been donated from all of your hearts! All my love to each and everyone of you!

Cancer FreeFriends, I am so very happy to relay to you Celeste’s latest update.  She is FREE at LAST of CANCER!   She still has the blood clots, and will have to be on blood thinners for 6 months, but the fact that she is free of the stage 3 ovarian cancer is nothing but miraculous.

Celeste, I’m so happy for you, for you have worked so hard through a lot of hell to come out the other side of this.   YOU MADE IT!!!!  And being home with family and friends will surely improve you recovery and the love from all of us is a great hug of support and joy!  (Jumping with joy here!)

Of course, one has to be tested to be sure the cancer will not return, but I’m sure with love and support, it won’t have a chance.  And Friends, PLEASE remember to CONTINUE to SUPPORT Celeste’s cancer…

We just got an update from Celeste that her surgery today went perfectly! So happy to hear this!  Here’s her summary:

I’m in recovery now following the surgery to place the IVC filter in the vena cava vein. They went into the vein via my vein in my neck. The anesthesia gave me a wonderful sleep and I woke up happy with Nazim right by me side. Docs said it went perfectly and they will go on to take it out in October.

We’re having fun with the wonderful nurses as they keep me a little while longer for observation.

I finally got to eat a sandwich and have my Orgain shake.

So one down and the big surgery is next on July 24th. We got this!!!!

Please don’t forget to contribute to Celeste’s cancer fund  for every little bit will…

Dear Friends,

Celeste has just left an update about the implantation of the IVC filter to her leg vein to prevent the two clots from possibly traveling to her heart or brain. She will be having the hernia surgery later this month. Please keep Celeste in your prayers and please help to increase her cancer fund to help pay for the bills that her insurance won’t cover.   http://www.gofundme.com/kvo9xs

Every bit helps!  And our love, prayers and healing thoughts are with you, Celeste.  <3 <3

I just got word that I will be having the out patient procedure tomorrow, July 7th and this is where they will surgically implant an IVC filter in my vein to prevent the two DVTs (blood clots) from possibly migrating to my heart or lungs. I will be “out” for the procedure but will return home to rest afterwards.

I saw on line that there…

Dear Friends,

Celeste has just posted an update about the CAT Scan she had on Monday.  It’s not the best news, but it IS fixable (very soon).  The scan discovered two blood clots in her pelvic region and she will be going on medication very soon to keep them under control until her hernia (and now) clot removal surgery soon.  As Celeste stated in the past couple hours:

 Just got a call from one of the doctors and here comes the scary/bad news bit. Apparently the CAT scan found a blood clot, actually two of them close together in my veins in my pelvis which is next to a mass that they think is a lymphocyst but they will not know for sure until they go in during the hernia surgery and…

Healing Brain Cancer with a Zero Carb Ketogenic Diet by Andrew Scarborough

celestialmusingsblog:

Dr. Atkins gave us this diet back in the 70’s and he was ridiculed! Now its back with a vengence. Be careful with the fat if you have a delicate or compromised gallbladder.

Two and a half years ago, at the age of 27, I was working as a personal trainer and was physically very active. However, I was forced to stop working towards the end of 2012 because I was experiencing debilitating fatigue and severe migraine headaches. The doctors I consulted told me that my symptoms were most likely due to excessive stress.

At that time, I was eating a high carbohydrate, high protein, low fat diet, and I had a very low percentage of body fat. I ran and lifted weights, and for all intents and purposes appeared to be in great shape. I felt like I was doing everything right for good health based on what I had studied while working on my undergraduate degree in Sports Nutrition a few years earlier. But looking back, I probably wasn’t all that healthy internally.

From Nichelle’s Facebook page:

Update #2 10:15am June 5, 2016

The MRI showed that Nichelle Nichols had a MINOR stroke. She will start therapy this morning to evaluate how much damage was done, and try to determine her chances for a full or partial recovery. The therapists will test her hand at writing and legs to see if she can stand and walk on her own. Last night Nichelle remained alert, and cheerful.

When we told her about the love and support coming in from around the world she smiled and asked to see the posts on her facebook.

Thank you again for all of your kind words. Keep them coming because Nichelle is reading them.

Feel free to post your pictures with Nichelle and a story about when you met her.
