Transplant Tales: to China and back

Saturday, August 19, 2006

159 A.T.
Eric returned back from Santa Barbara looking and feeling great. Although, as of the August 4th, blood work, his AFP was showing 35,000. The AFP had tripled since he started the detox treatment. One good thing has come of these past 3 weeks. He has definitely benefited from this Issels Treatment Center, when it comes to better eating habits. We have converted to "ORGANIC" fruits and veggies, Gluten Free foods, and the best part, we have started a garden. Not just your typical dirt garden, that would be to easy. We have started a Hydroponic garden. Eric seems to think the wave of the future will be home gardening.
By doing hydroponics you can control the nutrients and oxygen you plants get. This also assists with the control of pests. We've got 20 plants going right now, with just one week under our belt the plants have almost doubled. With signs of tomatoes and bell peppers in the next couple of weeks. We will be eating great. Eric built a green house to house this wonderful plants and I have given him his next project, another hydroponic set up for 30 plants! I really did not think I would have gotten so excited abou this but I am. I guess you could call it, good therapy for Eric and myself.
Eric has returned back to work this last week. He said the job seemed as if it was at a halt while he was gone. Now it's back to business. Eric got a phone call from a rep with Wells Fargo Bank, wanting to know if he would share his story with them. Sounds like good PR.
Eric has a CT scan on Monday, August 21st and then an appointment with his Oncologist Tuesday, August 22nd. We will find out were his AFP is and what options if any we have. We will post an update next week.
Thanks to everyone for everything!

Great to hear Eric's story and his recovery. But I heard another sad story still happening in China.

Here are some words in the report:

The report was completed on July 6, 2006, and concluded:
“Based on what we now know, we have come to the regrettable conclusion that the allegations are true. We believe that there has been and continues today to be large scale organ seizures from unwilling Falun Gong practitioners.”
“We have concluded that the government of China and its agencies in numerous parts of the country, in particular hospitals but also detention centers and ‘people’s courts,’ since 1999 have put to death a large but unknown number of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience. Their vital organs, including hearts, kidneys, livers and corneas, were virtually simultaneously seized involuntarily for sale at high prices, sometimes to foreigners, who normally face long waits for voluntary donations of such organs in their home countries.”

The report further states:
“The allegations here are so shocking that they are almost impossible to believe”. “[They] represent a grotesque form of evil which, despite all the depravations humanity has seen, would be new to this planet. The very horror makes us reel back in disbelief. But that disbelief does not mean that the allegations are untrue.”

I encourage discussion regarding the issue, so for that I will leave the comment up regarding organ harvesting.

Howevcer once again, we were never told that is where the organ was coming from. Further more if China was lining up Falun Gong practitioners for their organs. Then I have a hard time understanding why I had to wait for an organ. If they have such an abundance because of the harvesting method. Then I should have been able to be sceduled for surgery a certain day and that would be that. Understand I am being sarcastic when I say this.

Good day!
My 14-year-old sister Megan came bounding into the kitchen wearing her black bikini. I had little time to react before she jumped up and wrapped her arms and legs around me. She squealed loudly in my ear and I had to grab onto the counter to keep from falling over.
… I leaned down over her body and licked along her nipples once gain. I slowly dragged my tongue down her stomach and tickled her sides. She giggled and I laughed too. My sweet baby sis, still so ticklish. My sweet baby sis, who I was about to make love to.
I love lolitas !! and sex :)
Young lolita it is a best !!!
