Janet continues to improve. The staples come out Tuesday, the 4th.
We are now taking several of the alternative cures mentioned in Outsmart Your Cancer. There is a link that seems to be the full text of that book below, in a previous posting. We will see if they do the job and if not, there are many others to try.
Several of the things we are taking are using technology from fungi. Mushrooms, in this case. One very interesting researcher in this field is Paul Stamets.

Google around for similar data. His website is http://www.fungi.com/
Our Chinese Medicine doctor loaned us a book, Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis
I have only read about 1/3 of it so far, but I like it. The reason that I mention it here is that in the first part he mentions the "news blackout" of many technologies that the Establishment has foisted upon us for hundreds of years. We are in a dramatic propaganda war. The Establishment has tried as hard as it can to keep us from learning about many things. Safe and effective cancer treatments, are just one area. Chiropractic is another.
If you immediately say, Quackery, then I say, their campaign worked well.
Like the wizard from “The Wizard of Oz,” who implores Dorothy not to look behind the curtain, The Establishment would like it if you didn’t ask any pesky questions. I suggest that you use an open mind and explore. What we find shocks us.
In Energy Medicine he says that more and more scientists are looking behind the curtain and are making major break-throughs and giving a scientific understanding to many things formerly quickly dismissed as woo-woo quackery.
Max Planck said it very well. "A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
But, a REAL scientist looks at data with an open mind. And with honest questions. And does not cook the books when the answers are not what he/she wants to hear.
A related quote that I cannot find at the moment is something like, "It is not heresy to question dogma. For if it be truth, it will emerge stronger with each testing. And if it is wrong, then we need to know that." (If you can figure out who and what I referring to, please let me know. I think that it was a Unitarian minister, about 80 yrs ago.)
Thanks again for the many prayers, etc.
