Since Chennai is flooded and all kinds of problems exist, British Airways canceled that part of our trip, and offered a refund for the whole trip. At about the same time, I found the results of my latest scan two days ago, and it showed that my brain cancer has started to grow a little, which was very bad news.
Thus it's back to a strict Budwick like diet, lots of fruits and vegetables, some grains, no sweets at all (not too hard since I've been doing almost that for a while), a little bit of salmon, or not, etc. It's very close to what we eat now, so it's not a hardship, but I must be more careful. I have the support of my family and friends and the power of prayer, so I'm ready for another round (not excited, but ready!)
As for our trip to India, that depends now on my doctor's reactions. I sure hope we can still go, even if for a shorter time.
We are so eager to get back to India, but we have just heard about all of the horrible flooding around Chennai, where we will stay for four months. I feel so badly for friends and others there. Meanwhile, we've had our own problems with Sivam's visa. Somehow or other we will make it there, but this has truly been the most ill-fated trip we've ever tried to take. I hope that's not a message to us!!
Perhaps our trip will be like this picture photo by Amit Rawat, which makes me feel a sense of life's journey, just like when I'm reading anything by Ramana Maharishi, Dharampal, Ram Swarup, and so many other inspiring sages, poets, singers, and more...
