On Tuesday, September 9, 2008, Abbey came to us very weak. Her husband and friend had to help her walk and helped her to sit down, clenching herself tightly and with a tense grim look on her face trying to control her pain. For a few weeks before coming to see us, she had shallow breaths and spoke in a soft voice because it hurt too much to speak. Her body was tight and very tense due to her pain. She was on terminal leave from work because she was expected to get worse and soon to die. Her husband and friend went to a meeting.
When they returned two hours later, she was sitting on a couch totally relaxed and with her arm across the top of the couch. After a short while, she got up, felt comfortable with almost no pain. Then, in front of her husband, she did a 360 degree spin on the front part of her shoe and went "Taa Daaa", with a smile on her face. That night, she walked around, felt good, not totally pain free, but a lot better than she had been feeling and spoke with a strong voice again because he pain was gone and she could take a deep breath again.
The following Monday, Sept 15, she returned to work and, as of Mid Nov 2008, her lymph nodes also are now normal again and she said she has no symptoms of any problem, she has not missed a day of work since. Her life is back to normal.
Her Sept 24 letter written to her friend that brought her to us:
RE: Saving my life
I just want to thank you so much from my heart for what you have done for me. I also want to thank you for introducing me to Fred. Since then, no relapses, I'm feeling great and I have been spreading the news ever since to anyone who is suffering or knows someone that is. Again, thank you so much.
