First of all I hope I'm not breaching any forum laws by creating another account. I couldn't get in with the name Xenia because someone already has it on SS - me but the email I used no longer exists and I couldn't remember details for my other account. I'm probably going to be banished from property chat cyberspace again lol but here it goes. In July this year my 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer. Angelo and I were called into her pediatrics appointment and they told us to take her to womens and childrens hospital immediately and that there was a team of oncologists waiting for her. We were told it was likely stage 3 and had spread to her brain and lungs - they found a tumor in her lower spine, she would probably require aggressive chemotherapy for 18 months and has a good chance of living for 5 years. Our life was over I rang a good friend of mine who has a real estate license and told her to step up and run my business, she did this for FREE for several weeks, another friend stepped into admin also for free- lesson number 1, good friends are the biggest gift in the world. I then contacted every organisation I know that sends out positive intentions, prayer groups, meditation groups, I did not care what religion, Christian, hindu, universal, Buddhist and asked them to pray or send positive intentions out for our daughter. I used every mindset tool I have ever spoke about, wrote about or heard about - it was extremely difficult to stay strong and stay in present time, I'm naturally a strong person but in this situation I called on other good friends to keep me up. Who is around you is important. I kept negative people away from my daughter, including my mum who was not able to hold herself together. The oncologists got to work to identify the spread of the tumor, we were in hospital for almost a week. I was dressed in a business suit, high heel shoes etc.... at the initial appointment I had no idea that this was the turn life would take for us on that day. I asked my husband to go home and bring me some track suit pants and T-shirts, he came back with tight jeans and 3 jackets - remind me again what husbands are good for LOL The oncologists took 5 days to give us results - they said it would take a few hours to identify the spread. After 5 days they told us that there was no spread of any tumor cells to her brain and lungs and they were not able to explain it as given the size of the tumor there should at least have been some metastasis. They then did a biopsy of the tumor, sent us home and made an appointment to come back and discuss treatment. The day before the appointment at 7:30pm they rang and said they cancelled the appointment because they discovered THERE IS NO CANCER PRESENT. Miracle or misdiagnosis? I don't know and I don't care, I am grateful to the universe that whatever it was, it's gone. I remember one time having a meeting with one of the oncologists who was describing some scary and terrible things and how they would do surgery and the very bad odds against it all. I was so stuck by grief I was unable to get off the chair, he walked off and said "take as long as you like I know it's hard" I made a decision after looking at the mess I had become that this is not me, I will not allow this and he does not have the right to give my child a death sentence, she is going no where because she has a physical life to complete here on earth!!! He may understand cells and physical things but he does not understand the power of the human mind. This has changed my life forever. I am now very grateful to the little things in life. The challenges at work are no longer challenges, I'm grateful for difficult clients and situations because if my child was really sick I would not have the luxury of building a business - my focus would be on getting that child well again and that would take all I have. I'm back and I am completely changed.
