4 Weeks until we go to Sanoviv...

and I'm feeling...hummm...nervous, excited, hopeful, anxious. Really, it depends on the moment and usually it's all these feelings at the same time. Yes, I'm sure I'm a treat to live with right now.

I hear amazing stories of recovery and relief of symptoms which have me excited and eager to go and yet, I know the reality is that this is NOT a magic solution. I plan to focus the next 4 weeks on preparing my body to be in optimal condition for the best results. Whatever that looks like.

To me, this means eating better and taking my supplements (vitamins). Not that I eat terrible right now (I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist), however, with a young toddler and lack of energy, I could definitely eat better....or at least more regularly. I don't weigh very much and with running after Logan and only getting in half my meals, I will not gain weight unless I'm committed to my own health.

I just went to my chiropractor this morning. Dr. Matovich works out of the Natural Way Chiropractic in Calgary. They use an very gentle non-invasive approach. My hope is that this will help my body get as aligned as possible before my CCSVI treatment.

That just leaves the emotional/spiritual side. The biggest part of this means setting Logan up for success while I'm away. I haven't been away from him for more than a few hours since he was born. I know this will be WAY harder on me than on Logan. :O) His 2 grandmas and 1 auntie will be taking turns looking after him while we are away. I'm going to leave him with others a couple of times this month to see how we do. (by "we" I really mean me.)

All in all, I think I'm ready for the big experience. Our fundraising is going very well. The Silent Auction is already getting a lot of attention and there is still a week to go. If you have not already checked it out, the auction items are well worth a view! Holly's Online Auction


  1. Holly, I left my little guy for a month and a bit due to needing a bone marrow transplant, and he is just fine. A few years have passed now and all is well. You can do encouraged! Jennifer Mechanuck (nee.McKeeman) My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. Thank you Jennifer. :O) I'm really glad all went well with you and your health.
