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!
