The phone rang and They answered it. I would have but I didn’t hear it. Then They handed the phone to me and said “Kyla, it’s for you”. I take care of all of the medical stuff for me except for the fact that I am nowhere to be found when the bill is presented.
The information about the melanoma vaccine was in. There was good news and bad news. The good news was that supposedly there were no side effects. The bad news is that to start, four shots would be required and another shot every six months. Now, I’m not scared of shots, I get one every 25 days for my Addison’s Disease. Each shot would be about $600!?? Also, we could see if the cancer spread to other parts of my body by taking X-rays and ultra-sound but small spots that wouldn’t show up now could grow. So going this route would entail
1) Ultra-sound and X-rays that wouldn’t be conclusive.
2) Taking shots (that are supposedly safe) for a condition that I may or may not have and putting this old body under stress. The effectiveness of these experimental shots hasn’t been proven.
I don’t want to be a guinea pig that way but a Buddy of mine is truly a guinea pig and earned it the old-fashioned way and said I couldn’t join their union.
The other options are doing nothing and the holistic approach I decided on the holistic approach because it is safe and has done good in others. It would involve rotating supplements of tumeric, green tea extract and mushroom extract (hopefully from “magic” mushrooms). All natural and FOOD. It’s not as appetizing as it could be. Now I’m gonna ask for some help from Blogville. We need articles to show my doctor. I need you to write those articles. For example Dr. Samuel Wallace, MD of the Parkin Institute in South Africa about how feeding a dog lots of green beans cures melanoma. Don’t worry about the MD part, that stands for Mad Dog. Get writing and get it published and we’ll get the Doc to prescribe green beans in quantity and the peeps can’t say no.
