no greater love

 
Before I knew your name
You knew my every breath
Before I found my way
You knew my every step
Before I knew everything that I need
You gave it all to me
No greater love than this
That you should lay down your life
For someone such as me
I’d spend a life time wondering why
The beauty of heaven is here in my heart
And I know there can be
No greater love
Than this
I never understood
How mercifull love could be
Untill I felt His flame
Light every part of me
And I would give everything that I am
Cause I have been saved
Yes I have been saved
No greater love than this
That you should lay down your life
For someone such as me
I spend a life time wondering why
The beauty of heaven is here in my heart
And I know there can be
No greater love
Ooohh…
The beauty of heaven is here in my heart
And I know there can be
No greater love
For someone such as me
No greater love
Than this

thank you my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ……Your love is simply amazing!!!

i fall so deep

I’m always thinking about you,
I wonder if you can tell,
These things I’m feeling inside me,
I keep them all to myself.
Scared to show my true emotions,
don’t want to love alone,
‘Cause I fall so deep,
you never know how far I go,
And I know why, my heart beats desperately,
I fall so deep.
Some people think love is foolish,
while others think its a game,
I think that love is a fire,
I’m burning up in your flame
I’m so lost in my emotions,
wanting you ever more.
‘Cause I fall so deep,
you never know how far I go,
And I know why, my heart beats desperately,
I fall so deep,
I fall so deep,
I fall so deep.
And I’ve come so close to the part,
where I reveal my heart to you,
But I lose my nerve,
can’t find the words to tell you that it’s true.
I fall so deep, ’cause I fall so deep,
You never know how far I go,
And I know why, heart beats desperately,
I fall so deep, I fall so deep,
I fall so deep, I fall so deep.

pt dancing

i enjoyed my physical therapy session today. i abandoned my cane and had a great time dancing with my dance err physical therapist. yes, you read it right, i went dancing and i really had a great time.

dance movement therapy or DMT is a psychotherapeutic use of movement for emotional, cognitive, social, behavioural and physical conditions. they also call it expressive therapy. contrary to the usual dance which is more focus on the artistic movements, DMT is into exploring the nature of movements. the focus is actually on the connection of the mind and the body to promote healing.

my therapist told me that through observing and altering my kinesthetic movement he would be able to diagnose and help me solve various physical as well as psychological issues. he added that this kind of therapy is also very effective in improving self-esteem and reducing stress of people who went into the hellish experience of chemotherapy.

so the goal of my sessions is to actually provide more exercise, improve my mobility, muscle coordination and reduction of muscle tension. at first i was so unsure if i would be able to pull it through since i’m really not into dancing and i couldn’t imagine myself dancing with a cane. but i ended up putting all my worries behind when i finally hit the dance floor and i felt really great moving my thin body to the sexy tune of “oye como va”. he he he.

my blood counts are picking up and although i’ve been experiencing some mild asthma attacks i feel a lot better and i’m looking forward to going home and taking my much needed house arrest err rest 🙂

again, my sincerest thanks to those who are praying for me and supporting me financially,  morally and spiritually. God bless all of you. my hopes are high that i would be able to survive this phase and move up to consolidation therapy and bone marrow transplant.

let’s dance to that! 🙂

OT doki

today is my third day doing my OT and i feel good! 🙂  

occupational therapy or OT refers to the use of meaningful occupation to assist people who have difficulty in achieving a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

according to the OT manual that was given to me, occupational therapists work with a variety of individuals who have difficulty accessing or performing meaningful occupations. they work with individuals who have conditions that are mentally, physically, developmentally or emotionally disabling. their goal is to help their clients have independent, productive and satisfying lives. basically, its about helping someone like me, a leukemia patient on remission, get back my independence and enjoy life as normal as possible. isn’t that great?

so my first OT session which lasted for 3 hours was on dressing, we called it “dress for success”.  i told the therapist that i can put my socks, jockey and pants all by myself but its the upper stuff which i find difficult to put on alone. so he helped me in putting on a patient gown as if i’m going to wear  a shirt and then he gave me a small panel with fabric and buttons and he asked me to button up the material like a shirt. it was difficult and painful but i was able to pull it through after 30 minutes. whew! the process was repeated i think 3 times and  after that he asked me to answer a 3-page questionnaire full of abstract figures. whew again!

afternoon of the same day, i was with my physical therapist and i had fun doing some leg exercises and walking. first it was walking with a walker, then with my cane. i was so proud of myself because i was able to walk farther and broke my own record. after taking a break, i had some stress testing and arm exercises. i was exhausted but i felt really good. seeing those sweats coming out made me smile.

second day of OT is on shaving and it was hard. its been a while since i used my hands that way and coordination was difficult at first. i almost cut the side of my lower lip while shaving my moustache. and i felt really sad when we tried shaving a little of my goatee. he he he.

so today is the third day and i still have two more sessions for OT. i feel a lot better now and i want to believe that i’m getting better, well except for a fever spike two days ago.

i can walk now, a few baby steps, without my cane and it felt really great. i hope i could jog and jump soon.

again i want to say thank you to all those who are praying for me and supporting me financially, emotionally and spiritually. thank you so much. God bless all of you.

the journey continues………..ahoo! ahoo! (inspired by “300”) he he he

Whenever i wake up
the first thing i think of is you
i still can’t imagine

i’ve fallen for you
and its all because…

’cause you are so wonderful to me
with the way that you love me
