Carmen in Tehachapi


Hi bloggers,
Well, I've been here on a gorgeous 20 acre ranch for 4 days, and it's been very peaceful, healing, and spiritual. I am surrounded by animals....my daughter is a horse trainer and I get to watch her teach her students outside my window in her jumping arena which is right in her backyard! My grandson, Dylan, who is 13 has been juicing for me every day: carrotts, pineapples, and all kinds of combinations of vegetable juices. It gives me energy, and it's one of the few things that compliments the chemo. Whenever I eat any junk at all, such as a cookie, I can taste ALL the chemicals in it, and it's not attractive food anymore.
Today one of my best friends, Kris Larronde is coming up. We are staying in a hotel tonight and having some down time. Kelly planned a very large BBQ for me over the weekend, and my Cousin Randy, wife Doris, and his Mom Virgina are all coming over to party.
Life is good. If anyone is ever out by Bakersfield, you should take a little trip over the mountains into Bear Valley and visit this peaceful little town of Tehacapi.
Aloha to all!

Hi Kay,
Welcome to the bloggers network! You made it, yay!
Chris Larrondes # is: 310-968-5293.
My address is 573 Leona Lane, Mountain View, CA 94040. Tomorrow I get an MRI for my brain, to see if that's where the cancer came from, Fri, another "blast" of chemo, and then out of it for awhile. I feel real good this week. Can't wait to snorkel, swim, have massages, paddle, and be back on my little playground of Kauai. this place is too fast for a little guppie like me. I miss you and love your healing eyes too!
love,
Carmen

Hello Carm,
You sound well, even though you've been undergoing such trials. God tests us in odd ways, that's for sure...we can't know in advance why, but in retrospect, sometimes we get "aha's!".
Stay strong, you're an inspiration for many of us.
Love, Patti
