shivering

Mom was shivering this morning.

I did my usual thing of having morning coffee on my own then, upon waking up a bit more, joining the rest of the house to say “good morning”.  At 8:30AM, Mom was sitting in the living room with a blanket, coffee, & muffin shivering away.  I was alarmed.  She assured me that she’d be fine in a moment.

I guess she was.

cancer shrunk with new drug

Numbers don’t lie, and the sizes of her tumours have all gone down.  Here is a report from her last X-rays.  The doctor said that she is responding really well to the new medication.  He even went to far as to say that Mom would be in remission by next spring.  Read into that what you wish.  I firmly believe that it is entirely possible for her to be rid of cancer.

weight gain

Mom is quite pleased.  She’s gained a pound.  She was at 69 lbs. for a long time.  Now, according to her own scale and the doctor’s, she’s a whipping 70 lbs.  I attributed that to the cannabis oil she’d been taking for 3 weeks, but she doesn’t believe it.

no more cannabis

Mom discontinued using cannabis oil a few days ago.  She says it did nothing.  She was using 1 part THC and 2 parts CBD, 5 drops, 4 times daily, for about 2 weeks.  Before that, she was using 5 ~ 6 drops daily of 1 part THC and 4 parts CBD.

For those who do not know what the THC & CBD is: putting it simply, THC is the part that gives the buzz, and CBD counteracts the effects of THC.  Both are normally present in a natural cannabis plant.  THC is also responsible for increased appetite, pain management, reducing stress, and helping with sleep.

So, with Mom’s dosage and ratio, it is my opinion that she stood no chance of seeing any results.  I suggested a 1:1 ratio of both oils and 20 drops, 4 times per day.  Still no high, but increased effect for everything else.  Unfortunately, Mom doesn’t want to continue it, so that as they say is that.
