In this life, I fought for myself and others in good ways and wrong ways… I have spent many years working on myself to keep living better everyday. I will keep fighting in the right way.
Its my 67th winter on MotherEarth – with one winter where my EarthMother carried me.
I have fought many battles and now I face CANCER! Tayan Wa’un!!!!
January 9th 2019 – My doctor told me that I get all or part of my right kidney removed – that my cancer has spread. I find it very difficult to understand why it took so long – over two years to finaly dcide to remove this kidney. What is the point of letting if grow and spread?? Hopefully, it has not spread throughout my abdomen now… I will find out as soon as they open me up. I’ve already had three MRI and too much radiation… I pray for Ceator to help me be stronghearted.
I am grayteful for all the prayers.
I am walking the GOOD RED ROAD as best I can and will help anyone who comes with their true heart.
My present situation is very difficult. I am weakened physically and thinking tired. I find this stage of my life to being a continuous test. At times, I am saddened with these changes I am going through, even though this is changes that cannot be avoided. Still, in my warrior heart, I am grateful for all I have and have had… I am grateful for my life and all I’ve been given. I am grateful for all the people I have shared and experienced life – good and not good stuff.
My health has been slowly declining with every season. I have noticed extreme changes in my body as I age. With my many years in martial arts and sports I have a couple of permant wear and tear injuries which severly limit my mobility. I was hit by a heart attack in November 2018 which also resulted in damage to my left eye. Ophtomologist said I have damge to my left macular, which needs to be monitored. Also I need to see a heart specialist because surgery on kidney can be very dangerous.
I am right now even having trouble typing this on my computer.
I live outside the city of Winnipeg outside the place where my mom was born. It is ironic that I moved out here… it is also close to where my dad is from.
I need help to raise the money to get the cure or to go where the cure is. I also need help if I get the surgery… someone to help me for a few days upon release from hospital.
I have had too many MRIs already – 3 in total – in the last two years. I have at least 6 other x-rays with these. I have a lot of back pain from a herniated back and complicated by a rizotomy (nerves are burned to deal with pain) which caused 24/7 pain. I also have pain in lower left side in the kidney area. When last I saw my urologist – he said that there shouldn’t be pain from my kidney BUT I can tell you it is more pain than my spinal injury! Last thing he said jokingly, “Your in rough shape.” Yes I suppose am, but its diifcult to not be worried.
Yes, While it is good to not be so serious – this is a very difficult time.
