i was cleaning up my old portable external HDD When an FB friend posted a video of george harrison’s song”all things must pass  i remembered some of my friends sms and fb and email msgs  telling me that this too shall pass in God’s own sweet time when they learned about my condition here is a part of the song now i’m really not familiar with the song even though i was a Beatles nut back in high school but the lyrics surprised me, very apt.

Now the darkness only stays at nighttime !

In the morning it will fade away

Daylight is good At arriving at the right time

It’s not always Going to be this grey

All things must pass

All things must pass away

All things must pass All things must pass away

thanks for all the messages and donuts!!! 😀

thank you so much to all my angels , you know who you are, thank you for your prayers, support love and cheers smiles, hugs kisses, messages.  i can never thank you angels enough no words can describe how overwhelmed i am and my family at this point in our lives, from the very bottom of our hearts, thank you very very much.  we still have a long way to go but with HIM and you guys around there’s no falling back.  😀

my RT and OC ended yesterday but i will be given i.v. chemo for the next few days, again this is related to the pnet foci stuff  a couple of blogs ago. i’ll be confined for 5 days at st. luke’s global next week (march14)for treatment and to be closely monitored by my doctor  will be needing tons and tons of prayers:) i already had one  i.v. session done so this is to continue the rest of the treatment.

PS:we’ve been getting a lot of inquiries regarding the graymattersproject.com campaign we’re still working on the site and the teasers as for now please read here

today is the last day of my radiation therapy(30)days 5x a week and 42days (7x a week) of my Oral chemo therapy(temodal capsules)then it’ll be rest day mode for me for 28 days until next MRI as I’ve mentioned previously but i  still have a set of i.v. chemo scheduled at a later time yet still to be determined by my neuro oncologist this is still in relation to the pnet foci squatter in my brain but let’s talk about that at a later time. today i just want to thank God f or letting me finish my therapies with minimal side effects like hair loss, dry throat, cold sores slight fatigue,no seizures, no headache,no nauseous sensation no memory loss,no fever.these alone are big blessings already and I lift everything to HIM as my offering:) amen!!

i just want to give a shout out to a number of my cousins Dr.Mark Domingo-Go who just recently passed the medical board exam!! rakrakan na!!and RN Esperanza-Domingo de Castro for passing the nursing board exams!!

Harry Domingo and Patricia de Castro happy graduation & congratulations!!

and a big shout out as well to the gray matters project Team I OWE YOU BIG TIME GUYS!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!

a lot of my angels have been sending me messages  on YM , FB, Skype and BBM  asking me how i’m doing. i apologize if i can not reply on time or my response is just so late.  anyway to update you folks of my condition and my treatments, my radiation therapy sessions and oral chemo will be done by next week march 8 tho my oral chemo therapy will still continue after28 days on a regular cycle after which i’ll be under going another MRI session to check on the squatters in my brain if they have been evicted or if their household numbers have shrunked to oblivion and pray that the Lord will never let them squat again in my brain or where ever they may please and that they never come back forever>: stupid cancer cells!!  my steroids supplements have been reduced which is good, i will be off of it soon.

physically i’m ok, my last weigh in was at 72kg lol! to my running buddies i can’t wait to go back to running…in time 🙂  my appetite is still the same strong as ever, my mouth sores-side effects of radiation are almost healed and dried up already, i have more baby hair now than Lucas thinking of shaving my hair skinhead style 😀  on my PT and OT sessions today i was able to lift a light wooden bar on my own using my left arm and i was also able to grip  very light plastic toy balls and blocks tho with much effort but its a milestone for me, i was also able to grip on a thera-putty, it’s like clay-doh but hospital grade material 🙂 tiring day but all worth it!!  and i offer it all to HIM!!

what i eat now? wheat bread, i use more brown sugar lots of milk, lots of vegetables and fruits, less red meat, more chicken (white meat) , fish, eggs(hard boiled) nuts, dark chocolate in moderation, pureed fruits like avocado and papaya. its like home made ice cream!!!  i sleep aound 1030 to 11pm and wake up exactly after about7-8 hours  straight that’s how tired i am each day.  so there you go! btw please don’t forget our gray matters-project see you guys there!!! thanks and God Bless us all!!
