Jorja March 2013
Jorja was confirmed as having intermediate grade lymphoma Monday just gone. She is 8 years old.
She had been on steroids for the week prior to confirmation and has been full of life.
We have decided to not go down the chemo/radiotherapy route for her sake.
I am studying all of the internet for alternative treatment, and I am frantically trying to get hold of flax oil, Essiac, and other items mentioned as holistic.
Jorja today has been off the steroids for 3 days now and today is the first day she is telling me that she is feeling unwell.
I have been feeding her raw mince for the last 3 days, that I get from my local butchers which up till today she has wolfed down. She has not touched her dinner tonight and is just lying down looking very sad.
I have managed today to get some Essiac Tea which I have to boil/cook tonight so she can have some tomorrow.
I am beside myself at the moment and wish I could take all the badness from her into me. That's what 'mummies' do, isn't it?
It is good to put this down on screen and to share my deepest hurting feelings.
