Tim is home

Prayers for Tim, update

Well – life gave us a “close shave” last week.

We very much liked meeting Dr. Robert Rowen in Santa Rosa, CA. He is a very creative, energetic man. He was beside himself that Tim had been going through all of this since last November without a firm diagnosis.  He listened to the history, and did a physical exam, and promptly, decisively, diagnosed Tim with advanced prostate cancer. He was quite beside himself that Tim’s case had gotten so bad even under the care of a urologist. He said, “I am the alternative MD, and I am the one giving you the diagnosis? That is supposed to be one of the strengths of the orthodox docs! These guys really messed up.”

(Tim’s urologist had been treating him for related bladder problems, including infections, and hadn’t examined the prostate since December. I’ve since heard some similar stories, so I had to tell myself there is no point in getting all upset about it. Life is what it is…God’s dream…)

Dr. Rowen continued, “I am 99.9% sure of this diagnosis. I would even bet my house! But you need to get a CT scan to see what is going on with it.”

So we proceeded to make arrangements for the CT scan. The blood test showed that Tim was in renal failure (he had been feeling tired) and he needed to get to the ER immediately, because it was life threatening.  They drained the kidneys with an operation called a nephrostomy. The surgery was on Tuesday; now he is home and pretty ok (but he still needs rest) – the kidneys are doing fine. All of this surgery/recovery happened in the Grass Valley, CA hospital. Nice folks, all around. We are very grateful for the lifesaving surgery…The tubes stay in for a while until the cancer treatment has had time to take effect.

They also gave Tim an IV antibiotic treatment in the hospital and the painful bladder spams, which had been there for months, are now gone. THANK YOU, GOD!

Tim now has an oncologist who said the cancer can be treated, even at this stage, with a hormone blocker, because prostate cancer is hormone driven. The prognosis is very good, and for this we are very grateful. Durga told me that her brother had a similar journey last year, and now he is doing fine.

I may write some deeper insights about this in a separate post…There are things that I want to remember from what happened at 2 am in the ER on Easter night. God’s presence was there with us in that darkest hour. He is ever with us. He is Eternal, and so are we. I will write the story down now, while it is fresh. But I may need to keep it close to my heart. If it seems right to share it, I will.  We’ll see… But I wanted to get this much out to you now, and thank you for your prayers…and to say again that everything has its own perfection.

Love in Him, Namaste,


PS – We will continue with Dr. Rowen in Santa Rosa for Tim’s anti-coagulant therapy. Remember Tim had DVT’s early in the year?  Because he had a clotting factor disorder, he was prescribed Coumadin for life, which we weren’t super happy about.

Dr. Rowen is an expert on natural anti-coagulation (over 25 years experience), and on alternative cancer therapies. Tim’s oncologist/hematologist expressed respect for this and wants to work in cooperation with Dr. Rowen on this, and on any supportive therapies for the cancer, as well. We are very happy for this. And Dr. Rowen is very supportive of our choice to go with the hormone blocker treatment. He said, “It is non-toxic, and even I would do that one! And it can shrink the cancer back to nothing…”

    Dear Mary,
    Thanks for the detailed update!
    I am so very happy that you have found an incredibly wonderful team of professionals to help Tim heal from all of his problems in a non-toxic manner! I will continue to cover both of you with much positive energy, light, prayers and love! I had you both very much on my mind for the last couple of weeks, so prayed intensely each time you came to mind throughout each day.

    My prayers for you both will continue and I will add Rev. Rukwaro to my prayer list as well.
    Hooray! Tim is home and there is a lot of hope! Yes, a long journey ahead still, but light at the end of the tunnel!
    Much love and continued positive prayers for you both!

    From Joycee:

    Dear Mary,
    Thank you for sharing the latest update, and even though such a long time before Tim receive the correct diagnosis and treatment…so great the Dr. Rowen was able to connect the dots, and will be providing other therapy treatments for Tim. Maybe there is a reason that you needed to be (re)-connected to Dr. Rowen and his work for some divine reason. Anyway…I am going to keep him in mind for anyone that might need alternative medicine/therapy.

    I will continue to keep you all in prayers (as well as Rev. Wangai) – and have just printed this email to take home. I will print off the photo of you and your family from your Facebook posting) and put it underneath Swamiji’s Orange Shawl & underneath a framed photo of Master I have at home…to invoke extra blessings and healing 🙂

    You’re an amazing channel, Mary…so I know that Tim and your family have a strong protective aura of light around you, added by your loving gurubhais around the world also praying with and for you. May Divine Mother’s loving arms bring much comfort to you all, during this very trying karmic challenge.

    In Master’s love,

    Excellent! thank God for the doctors & the Right decisions! I’m so shocked that this has been such a threat.
    Excellent, for the non-toxic hormone blocker. Glad to hear of Durga’s brother’s success with a comparable condition.
    Love you both, Carol

    Dear Mary – I am very happy that you found a physician who was able to diagnose your husband and it seems that you are on the right track now for dealing with this disease. I will continue to pray for him each day.
