Answered Prayers ... power of prayer and power of love

I have looked at this picture of my beloved companion Ahnung a million times and wondered what is she doing ... what is she thinking ... what is she experiencing?? Having survived such horrendous conditions and abuse she has taught me so much about the power of love, forgiveness, resilience ... about being in the moment, about asking for what one needs, about setting boundaries. Who would've known that I could learn so much from an angel whom God sent to me in the body of a big black dog dumped with her litter of 8 puppies at Red Lake reservation in northern Minnesota.

I have been praying a lot. I have been allowing myself to receive the love and support of so many friends and family (and even cyber friends who follow my blog and have sent notes of support) ... I have an incredible health care team consisting of both western medicine doctors and alternative therapies (energy healer, acupuncturist, therapist and holistic doctor) ... and of course, the loving support of my Pet Haven "family" and of course my dogs Ahnung, Missy and Mister. I have had friends and family email me that I am in their prayers and that they are requesting for others in their church to pray for me. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe in the power of love and how our bodies are so miraculous and have the ability to heal themselves if we provide them with supportive, nurturing and loving environment.

Last night I spoke to my doctor about the results of the pancreas tests. He told me that the CT scan shows that my pancreas looks good. When I'm not traveling for work (which will be in February) he wants me to get off of the pancreatic enzymes for 5 days then go on a high fat diet so they can measure the fat absorption. Who knows ... maybe when i'm off the enzymes I won't have the symptoms and maybe, just maybe spontaneous healing has taken place as I kick off 2011. And maybe, just maybe I will no longer need to even take pancreatic enzymes anymore! Here's to a new year kicked off with health  .... and on next Friday I close on my new home as I embark on the next stage of my life's journey. It will be with mixed emotions as I close the door on a life that has in many ways taught me so much and allowed me to grow into this next stage.

And one big lesson that Ahnung is teaching me is a reminder to have fun ... she'll be sharing more on her blog about her latest adventures and her new hobby of knitting!! :)
