Mom's CT scan

First off, my mom is coming this Thursday for a visit and I'm SO excited! I think it'll help that last week of pregnancy go by fast.

Mom had a CT scan this past week to see how things were progressing. There was good news and not so good news. The good news is that the tumor hasn't grown at all. The not so good news is that the cancer has grown a bit in the liver. But, she's still not experiencing any of the bad symptoms of cancer, so that's wonderful! She feels good and is still able to do all that she did before. They'll check her again in three months, and if things seem to be getting worse, they'll most likely have her try doing one of four different treatments they offer rather than just allowing her to do natural things like she is now.

Part of her natural healing is that Mom has been doing a raw foods diet and will occasionally eat some healthy cooked foods, but mostly raw. She's been asked by friends if because of the foods she's eating (maybe because most don't seem very filling) if it's a ever a problem over eating with those items, which Mom and I thought was pretty humorous because how many people do you know that would sit down and want to eat 10 apples, or 4 glasses of wheat grass. Generally, with those types of foods, you eat until you're not super hungry any more, and then you're satisfied. But anyway, overall, Mom is feeling really good and we can't wait to see her!

Happy to hear she's doing so well considering. Are you coming to the tri-cities for the 4th of July?
