Home' Nova National : October 2011 Contents of my bed smiling encouragingly at me.
Next morning, my team told me they'd
finally procured a bed in intensive care
and the operation could go ahead. I
remembered the dream of my 'guardian
angel' as I was wheeled into theatre and
knew everything would turn out well. It
wasn't just a hazy dream of one of the
ward nurses as the nurses on my ward all
wore navy blue pantsuits. Some protective
presence was with me through 10 long
hours of delicate surgery for I woke up
in intensive care with my husband by my
side -- and there, at the foot of my bed,
stood a young nurse in a pale blue tunic,
smiling encouragingly at me! What was
even more bizarre -- she told us her name
was Rona -- the same name as my sister!
We could hardly believe the coincidence.
My sister Rona lives in New Zealand, but
on the night before surgery she'd said a
prayer for me and vowed that although
she could not be with me in the flesh she
would be with me in spirit. Somehow
Fate, or God, or whatever Divine Force
arranges these cosmic connections, had
organised a stand-in for my sister, and had
given me a preview in a dream.
This is not the first time my sister
and I have been psychically in touch,
and as our uncle back in Scotland was a
trance healer, to us paranormal activity is
perfectly natural. In fact, in Scotland the
world of the supernatural is held with
the greatest of reverence. But it takes
more than psychic dreams and cosmic
connections to explain the unusual
membrane surrounding the aggressive
tumour that threatened my life. It was my
body's own intelligence that created that
protective membrane, and I'm forever in
awe of such amazing body wisdom.
Unfortunately, a fine-needle biopsy
done on the tumour before surgery
punctured the membrane allowing the
'seeding' of cancerous cells into my
system, forming two secondary tumours,
and during chemotherapy a mole on my
palm reacting to the chemo proved to be
a malignant melanoma. More surgery ...
skin grafts to repair the damage ... situation
But again the Universe stepped in. My
'library angel' dropped a magazine into
Ihave it in writing that I'm a
"quite remarkable" and "rather
extraordinary" person. That's what
my specialists wrote in my medical
reports after I successfully recovered from
both pancreatic cancer and malignant
melanoma. With only 3% surviving
pancreatic cancer for five years, add
melanoma and my chances were pretty
slim. That was over six years ago.
Doctors are still unsure why some
patients survive and others succumb.
An excellent medical team helped in my
case, plus the love and prayers of my
family, and the strange psychic dreams
that played such a significant part in my
healing. But isn't life ironic; just when I
thought I was free and clear and ready
to tackle everything I'd put on hold the
last few years, I received news that the
innocent-looking pink 'insect bite' on my
arm was actually a dangerous amelanotic
(non-pigmented) nodular melanoma!
Apparently the Universe hadn't finished
with me yet and there was more healing
for me to do.
What was so remarkable about my
healing was the fact that I'd survived
a 10cm pancreatic tumour when few
people survive anything larger than 4.5cm,
because the tumour was enclosed in a
protective membrane that prevented any
cancerous cells from invading the rest
of my body. Even more amazing was the
healing advice that came to me in dreams.
My medical drama began early 2005
when the abdominal discomfort I'd
supposed was too much partying over
Christmas was diagnosed as a whopping
7cm pancreatic carcinoma. I was
scheduled for an immediate Whipple
Procedure -- a complicated surgical
operation that entailed the removal of most
of my digestive organs, but because of a
spate of serious emergency cases taking
priority in the IC Unit, my procedure was
delayed for several days until a post-op
bed was available. During that anxious
wait I was convinced 'the lump' was
growing. It was! By the time it was
removed it had grown to 10cm!
Then strange things began to happen.
One night, I dreamed that a young nurse
in a pale blue tunic stood at the bottom
