My first week of MUPs

On Monday I have finally seen the CT Scan results and notes – and it wasn’t that bad at all. The scan from last year only consisted of the abdomen and pelvis, this one also included chest. So of course there is more to look at:

The enlarged lymph nodes on the chest were a maximum of 19 mm and there were only four in total. The abdomen ones – compared to last year – were a mixed bag: Only two lymph nodes were bigger (the porta hepatis node went from 28 mm to 36 mm, another one from 19 mm to 24 mm). However, my doctor had failed to mention that three lymph nodes decreased (25 – 24 mm, 25 – 17 mm and 12 – 9 mm) and one stayed the same. All organs are fine and although the spleen is enlarged, it’s not cancerous.

Well, I call that a good outcome and one I still have to improve on – or let my body do the work, while I keep meditating a minimum of two hours a day, sometimes five. It feels great. I hope my MUPs (Meditation in Unusual Places) have inspired some of you!

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
