It has been a glorious day today as the sun has shone and it is warm.
I went out early for a dog walk –just a short one which Louis appreciated by not barking at any of the dogs we met. I patted him and told him he was a good boy and he almost looked proud.
I came back and we had breakfast and showered, housework and couldn’t wait to get out again for a longer walk on Tankerton slopes.
I was throwing a ball for Louis and he craftily threw it down the bank so Ray had to go down to retrieve it.
Well he must have thought that was good fun and tried to get it down the bank again.
He really had a great run around and once again he ignored all the other dogs that were out for their walks, have we found the answer and it is all down to extra exercise.
We did another shop at Tesco’s on the way home and Louis was worn out all afternoon.
I felt a lot better today and getting over this cold, thank goodness.
I have had a reply from a lady whos son has been taking Mistletoe and I really have got to start finding out if I can have treatment as Im really interested in the method.
Hi, just thought this may be of interest to you. My son has been having mistletoe drops (Iscador)since diagnosis that have been prescribed via the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital. Before he started any treatment I rang and spoke to Dr Elizabeth Thompson and she was most helpful and informative. Mistletoe has had over 30 years of research that supports the theory that it helps to maintain the bodies killer cells that help to fight cancer, these cells are often depleted during chemo and after surgery so mistletoe is particularly useful during these times. The type of mistletoe used depends on the type of cancer to be treated, e.g. my sons iscador (he has stomach cancer) is made using oak mistletoe so it is important that they are prescribed by someone who knows what they are doing, the Drs at BHH are working conventional oncologists with an added interest in holistic medicine. You may also be offered additional homeopathic treatment (nosodes – which can increase the bodies ability to fight metasteses and other remedies to manage side-effects etc), in our experience these have been very effective. Mistletoe will not cure cancer but it will aid the bodies natural fight, although my son is now in his last hours our family all feel that he has benefitted from treatment and he actually felt better than he had for some time once he started treatment – we would definitely recommend trying it. I wish you the best of luck. Zoe xx
A Prayer in Spring
by Robert Frost
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid-air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.
