I have kidney cancer and it's spreading pretty quick. I can't keep going much more and don't won't to keep this page up anymore. I will miss all of you. The kindness,love,& caring has been great! Thank you all! But I don't wish to die with no one thinking I'm still alive and sick. My wife & daughter are doing everything to help me and I'm still doing all I'm able. This is very hard for me because of a handful of very close friends at this site. Today is 9/16/09... I will shut it down a lil over a month for now. My friends can drop me emails and leave me info about how to keep in touch after then. Please write. Tell me how and what you feel about me and how I was helpful to each of you. When I'm died I won't hear you then or smell the flowers you wanna sent to pay respect to me. The real feelings and love will help me now! I have lasted far longer than I could very imagine but I'm having breathing, pain, as well as parts of me shutting down. I have had 2 kidney shutdowns so far and it sucks! You don't wanna go thru it to prove anything. Take care of yourself. Love all you can. Share as much as you can. I can't pass this on enuff. Then there is something I must say... QUIT LYING TO YOURSELF!!! Eat better. Walk daily. Have all the sex you can! Love to no limit! Love yourself! Live longer. Drink tea. Drink wine. Drink lots of filtered water. Quit buying bottled water to make the rich richer. Smoke... well you know! ;-) Eat more raw foods. Remember there is no invisible man in the sky. But magic is very real and has helped me each & every moment. Thank y'all! Bless you and may blessings surround you always. Take care. Later Rusty ;-)
I'm an old spirit in a ill body. I am a 3 time Cancer survivior. Had Spinal Menginitis(sp) in my mid 20s. Within the past 6&1/2 years I have found the true love of my life Karen. I was going to college when we met and she was going thru a divorce with a premmie lil girl. Her name is Krysta. Her and her mothers love changed my life as I've known it. Krysta was doing great until Dec 11th 04 at 11:50am. She was attacked by a mistreated pitbull that broke loose. She was tore up as she's told us.As she asked the dog to "quit chompin' my head!" She had been bitten from her little foot to being scalped. This mistreated pitbull that had been found on the side of the road by neighbors of where it was chained to a doghouse. The chain had broken many times without proper repair. Pinning some of the people inside their homes close. No reports were made until the attack. So, this is where I had Reiki work thru me and healing her. The Doctors that worked on her were the best! They told us the she could have physical and mental problems for life. We were looking to be with her for at least two and a half weeks before we could take her home. I had been a new Master for less than six months. Reading, researching, following my path with Reiki to guide me. Meditating six to seven times a day to attune myself for something driving me to ... Do The Work! Not to teach...until I was guided to. I was made for that moment in time! Her lil body, bandaged and mangled. Her head had a drainage tube coming from the under bandaging wrapped around her swollen head. I was in so much pain from having kidney stones. "Why! Why! How! Where!" questions from my wife to all that was there. What could I do but be the shoulder my wife and daughter would cry on. Or, Be a MAN! Be a Husband! Be a "Pa"! This moment was the change. Stepping up to change bad dog attack to great outcome. My lil girl cried and told me everything as I couldn't even hold her. As I wiped her tears, ever so lovingly. She asked me to use some Reiki on me "Pa"!I held her hand and the other on her head. She started to rest. That was worth everything for her to sleep and not hurt. I kept surrounding her body with chi. Within, a few hours her vital signs were improving. But the miracle was about to show it's wonderful gifts to us. Her eyes opened. She looked at her mother and then me. She looked around and asked. "Pa, I have to potty"! The nurse told her to hold on and she'll go for a bedpan. Then in her lil weak voice,"I can't pee in the bed! I can get up! Where is my bathroom. I know I heard someone in there." The nurse had just got her water. As she was helped out of bed. With her IVs and limping, holding her mothers' hand. She pottied! I was happy enough to go out of the the room and cry for a brief moment. She could NOT see me crying at this point. She needed someone she could lean on.
As I composed myself, I saw what was going on around me. Other ill children and My lil girl, this space needed laughter, joy, and hope. I turned on cartoons to watch. I used the nurses station to get what all was needed for Krysta. They had a bed for Karen to sleep and rest late at night. I slept during the midday hours while others visited her and she saw her therapists. So, what happened? In four days, she was coming home. Sleeping in her own bed. NEVER GIVE UP ON LIFE!!! My wife, has been threw the ringers of life. Her life as a Marine brat and traveling. Her mother was a bipolar narcissist with a hatred of her own children. She ended up shooting herself several years ago. A lot was going on. Her husband(my wife's dad) is a career Marine with a need to always be superior in every situation at the cost of others. He left her mother the week she died for her best friend. Her son(wife's brother) came out. She(wife's mother) told wife that her son(wife's son) lost that new baby smell. Plus a few things no one will truly know but her Mother. That was the point in my wife's life to wake her from going down the same path. She saw the husband would never do anything but for himself. Not even their children. She had to change her life and start again if only for her children. So counting the 15 years with a self serving slug of a ex husband. She started to want to change her life. With a son 5 years old and ADHD and a premmie baby girl. She kicked him to the curb.
Then she had PC problems and needed help. Her best friend was dating my cousin and asked me to fix it if I could. Then I met her, Karen! My wife, my friend, my playmate, partner in crime(not really), and the person I want to become the wonderful woman I see everyday. She needs to have a better education to match the woman I'm so very blessed to know and live with.
Since our marriage, our main power line into the house was cut... the negative wire that is. So, a major power blasting thru the wires...over 220 volts going threw everything. Unbelievable! The county road crew was patching holes in the road. And clipped the wire. And Drove off. The fell during the time trying to get my lil girl out of the house as the wires burned. She was fine, I almost killed myself falling down the stairs with her in my arms. My neck and back has never been the same. Then as I was getting a checkup I found out I have Acute Cardio Myopathy. Then I had a heart attach, heart surgery, and now I've been given less than 2 years to live. The Cardio Myopthy was from me having Testicular Cancer and Spinal Mengenitis damaged my heart and changed my heart beat. The meds, therapies, and chemo made everything worse. Now after time and my health becoming worse by the day. I feel time is limited. I'm sharing myself and my gifts with anyone that wants my training.
So, This is added (Feb 2 08). I am opening myself up to you. Y'all! I'm here to be a sounding board, a third party, someone who will let ya know what it looks like to someone outside yourself and life. This is NOT practicing psychology, medicine, or even false friendship! I am here due to knowing each day above ground is a blessing to be shared. If only, as someone that well listen to you who needs to vent,talk,chat,and/or whatever. Please Feel Free to open up and let out anything you would like. Please note, I can only do this a few a day but I am very will to share,care, and help as I can. So I just want what time I have left to mean something and even you somebodies here at Care2. (More soon...I hope! LOL)
