PAUSE FROM YOUR DAILY ROUTINE. A POST TO MY NIECE AND YOU MY READERS.

WHEN IT HAILS, IT HAILS ON EVERYONE THE GOOD AND THE BAD. WHEN THE SUN SHINES, IT ALSO SHINES ON EVERYONE. SUCH IS LIFE. IT IS A CONSTANT ITCH WITH UPS AND DOWNS. SEEK A BALANCE THAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY CAN LIVE WITH, WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY, FRIENDS AND THOSE WHO ARE IN THE SAME BOAT AS YOU.

JUST HEARD ONE OF MY NIECE WILL BE HAVING SURGERY TODAY FOR STAGE I CANCER WITH LITTLE TIME TO THINK OVER RAMIFICATIONS TO HER AND HER FAMILY. IF YOU CAN, PAUSE AND LOOK INSIDE THE EXTENDED BOX OR OUTSIDE BOX FOR WISDOM AND INSPIRATION. FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION OR GUT FEELINGS BASED UPON WHERE YOU ARE IN LIFE, PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND EMOTIONALLY WITH YOURSELF, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS.

I AM DOING FINE WITH THE HELP OF A WORKABLE ROUTINE, MY FITBIT AND NOOM WALK. I DO QI GONG DAILY TO PROMOTE HOMEOSTASIS IN MY MIND BODY AND SPIRIT, TAKE 5U OF INSULIN LENTE AM DAILY SO I CAN EAT MORE CALORIES TO MAINTAIN AND HOPEFULLY GAIN WEIGHT, TAKE AM GLIPIZIDE 20MG 1000MG METFORMIN 10MG LISINOPRIL MULTIVITAMIN ARTEMISIN CUCURMIN B COMPLEX, PM GLIPIZIDE 10MG 1000MG METFORMIN 3MG NALTREXONE HCL 900MG ALPHA LIPOIC ACID SILLYMARIN SELENIUM. I TEMPORARILY STOP SUPPLEMENTS WHICH CAUSE TOO MUCH DIGESTIVE UPSETS WHICH FORCES MEĀ  TO BE NEAR WASH ROOMS WHEREVER I GO. IT WORKS FOR ME AND ALLOWS ME TO LIVE AS NORMAL A LIFE I CAN WITHOUT CONSTANT DISCOMFORT. WE EACH NEED TO FIND WHAT WORKS WITHIN OUR OWN SITUATION. AS LONG AS THE PLUSES OUTWEIGH THE MINUSES, I’M DOING GREAT.

TODAY AND EVERY DAY I THINK OF IT, I WILL BURN A CANDLE IN MY FIRE PLACE TO YOU MY NIECE AS SOMETHING I CAN DO PHYSICALLY TO WISH YOU A QUICK RECOVERY FROM YOUR SURGERY AND LIFE WITH CANCER (I RECOMMEND YOU READ LIFE OVER CANCER BY KEITH I BLOCK MD). CATHOLICS BURN CANDLES IN CHURCH AND BUDDHISTS BURN INCENSE IN THEIR TEMPLES TO HONOR THEIR LOVE ONES ON EARTH AND IN HEAVEN. YOU ARE IN MY DAILY PRAYERS. UNCLE WAYNE

ATTENTION DANNY AND SHANNON! THIS POST IS FOR YOU. RESOURCE FOR HOPE

IT WAS A PLEASURE FOR ME AND MY BROTHER LARRY TO MEET YOU BOTH IN PETALUMA THIS PAST WEDNESDAY FOR OUR INFUSIONS BY AMY. IT TURNED INTO A SPONTANEOUS SUPPORT GROUP SESSION FOR ALL OF US WITH RECURRENT CANCER. THANK YOU AMY FOR LOANING ME THE BOOK ENTITLED LIFE OVER CANCER BY KEITH L BLOCK, MD.

IT IS A GREAT RESOURCE OF HOPE AND IDEAS FOR ANYONE WITH RECURRENT CANCER AND QUESTIONS ON WHAT TO DO NEXT. I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK HIGHLY. THERE IS INFORMATION AND RESOURCES YOU CAN USE NO MATTER WHAT STAGE OF CANCER YOU HAVE.

OBSERVE HOW GOD HAS PROVIDED FOR THE BIRDS OF THE SKY AND LILIES OF THE FIELDS. CONSIDER HOW MUCH MORE HE HAS PROVIDED FOR YOU HIS CHILDREN ON EARTH. KEEP THE FAITH AND DON’T GIVE UP HOPE FOR A BETTER DAY.

I AM PRESENTLY ON INSULIN TO HELP ME CONTROL MY SUGARS AND GAIN WEIGHT WHILE I STILL CAN. “OMEGA” MY PANCREATIC CANCER, AND I ARE CO-EXISTING IN A WORKABLE BALANCE WITH EACH OTHER. TRY EXERCISING YOUR LIMBS DAILY TO INCREASE GLUTAMINE FROM MUSCLE USE RELEASE TO PROMOTE NK OR NATURAL KIILLER CANCER CELLS IN YOUR BODY. DON’T GIVE UP HOPE. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING ELSE YOU CAN DO TO PROMOTE LIFE AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY. PEACE AND LOVE, WAYNE

2014 What Roles Will You Play in 2014

The roles I will play in 2014 are the same ones I have played as a husband to my new wife Holly, brother to my 4 brothers, father to my 6 grown kids and 5 grandkids, great grandpa to our new great grand daughter Layla, uncle to my 11 nephews and nieces and new nephews and nieces on Holly’s side if the family, member of Saint Luke’s church, doctor to my Podiatric and Acupuncture patients,  member of Asiya shrine band and West Bay Community Band, student of Qi Gong, tap, belly dancing.
Life is motion, moving forward with new experiences, joys, friends, travels. It is also keeping in touch with what is good and down plating what is pathologic. It is maintaining and promoting balance in all aspects of our lives.
Long life and Happy New Year to all of you on 2014.

CHRISTMAS EVE MYSTERIES AND PARADOXES OF LIFE

CHRISTMAS EVE IS TODAY-A TIME TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST AND MEET WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR RENEWAL, GROWTH AND FELLOWSHIP. WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE 50-60 PEOPLE SHOW UP AT MY PLACE AT 4:30PM FOR FAMILY PHOTOS, POTLUCK, CANDLE LIGHT REFLECTIONS, A VISIT FROM SANTA, SOME CHRISTMAS CAROLING, GIFTS FOR KIDS 18 AND UNDER, MYSTERY GIFT GAME, AND FOR THOSE WHO WISH, CHURCH AT 10:30PM MASS. MOST WILL COME IN PAJAMAS AND TAKE THEIR CHILDREN HOME IN PAJAMAS.

ONE OF THE MYSTERIES OF CHRISTMAS IS JESUS CHRIST WAS BORN TO LATER DIE ON EASTER FOR OUR SINS AS A SIGN OF GOD’S LOVE FOR HIS CHILDREN. MARY, JESUS’S MOTHER WAS NOT CONCEIVED BY JOSEPH, MARY’S HUSBAND, BUT BY GOD. MARY’S COUSIN, ELISABETH, AT AN OLD AGE, GAVE BIRTH TO JOHN THE BAPTIST. JOSEPH, MARY’S HUSBAND, DESPITE THE SITUATION, DID NOT ABANDON MARY AND JESUS, BUT CARED FOR THEM AS AN ANGEL ENCOURAGED HIM. IT IS SAD WHEN HUSBAND LEAVE MOTHER AND CHILD FOR ANOTHER, OR WHEN PARENTS ABANDON THEIR OFFSPRINGS.

PARADOXES OF LIFE EXIST EVERYWHERE AND ON EVERY LEVEL OF LIFE. YOU MAY LOOK VERY GOOD AND HEALTHY ON THE OUTSIDE AND BE VERY SICK INSIDE, OR VICE VERSA. WITHOUT BEING OPPRESSIVE, WE NEED TO COMMUNICATE WITH LOVE ONES HOW WE FEEL AND WHAT WE PERCEIVE AS OUR CONCERNS. THEN WE CAN LOOK FOR SOLUTIONS. SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH OR CONTRACT AILMENTS THAT CRAMP THEIR STYLE AND WAY OF LIFE, BUT CAN SUCCESSFULLY ADAPT TO OR SUCCESSFULLY COMPENSATE FOR THEIR SITUATION, AND SOME JUST CANNOT. ILLNESSES CAN OFTEN LEAD US TO A BETTER PATH OF HEALTH AND ENABLE US TO PROVIDE BETTER CARE FOR OTHERS OR IT CAN MAKE US A BUNCH OF GRUCHY OLD MEN AND WOMEN. ONE PERSON’S PAIN MAY BE ANOTHER PERSON’S JOY. WE WERE ONCE YOUNG AND NOW WE ARE SUDDENLY OLD IT SEEMS. TIME MOVES ON IN A CARAVAN AS THE DOGS ALONG THE WAY, BARK.

SO WHAT IS THE POINT? WE LIVE FOR TODAY THE BEST WE CAN IN WHATEVER STAGE OF LIFE WE ARE WITH WHATEVER AILMENTS AND PROBLEMS WE HAVE. WE ENJOY EACH OTHERS COMPANY AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOCUSING ON THE GOOD SIDE OF EVERYONE AT LEAST JUST FOR TODAY. THERE IS A SILVER LINING IN EVERY CLOUD AND PERSON. DON’T LET THE HURTS AND CRAZINESS OF YESTERDAY SPOIL YOUR DAY TODAY. TOMORROW HAS ITS OWN MYSTERIES AND PARADOXES OF LIFE, SO DON’T GO THERE TODAY. IT IS WHAT IT IS. HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HEALTHY NEW YEAR! TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY, GIVE OF YOURSELF, LET GO OF ILL THOUGHTS THAT POISON RELATIONSHIPS, AND GIVE IN A BIT AT LEAST TO SAVE THE DAY AND THE RELATIONSHIP.
