Hello Everyone!  I have been trying to find our original thread B&B's World-Energetic Healing-because it has, pretty much, our whole story.  Can't find it tonight and couldn't find it a few weeks ago. Oh well.  I just wanted to say that this year has been a blessing.  Life is so precious and we feel so lucky.  Had a great doc who is an expert on continence; discovering just how much of the urethra to spare in order to retain the sensation that allows for control.  B does not even know he's missing his prostate--honest, I asked him!  Despite some disappointment he felt during the year regarding the strength of erections--it was really related to previous BP issues, and for the last six months he has been on a regular weight-lifting/cardio workout program which has reduced his BP and need for certain medications.  Surprise, surprise, the second part of the prostate issue is greatly improved--almost like our days of youth!  Anyway, B just went for the year checkup and the doc said, "Whatever you're doing, keep doing it!"  Its nice to see him feeling better in every way.  By the way, Reiki (healing energy work) got us through the crisis-for those of you out there willing to do EVERYTHING-we both highly recommend it.  Best to all of you wonderful people! Becky  P.S. Found our story--thanks to Bluebird, its on her welcome page in the "Our Journey" section-Thank you!

Becky - looks like you two are doing so well! Always a treat to hear, not to mention the importance of looking into every approach for healing in conjunction with the good old traditions. Great news on the meds reduction, too. Congrats to you both.

Hello Becky,

I too, am into Reiki and used it long distance while my daughter had surgery. The bonus is it calms you and benefit them as well. You can't give it without getting the benefit yourself!
