Q & A with Bernie – March 15, 2021

Question for Bernie:

BDad, my favorite and only CD,

Well, I did it again. I had a brain scan and it showed me as having developed another cavernous malformation. I meet with the neurosurgeon on Monday, March 8th by computer and video. I have Cowden’s Syndrome (Disease). It causes the cavernous malformation to develop over and over again and I have them all throughout my body. Mine just happened to also land in the brain.

Once I know more I will call you or email you. I was really scared for a while, and then a peace came over me and I knew that God was with me, and I should not be afraid. I love you, Dad.

My whole family—all 4 girls, sisters, have Cowden’s Syndrome due to the fact that my Dad had cancer and went through radiation and then had 4 girls. Go figure!!

Bernie’s Answer:

Visualize your body closing all the cavernous bodies.  Do it every few hours.

Create an image for yourself—like filling them with love, or collapsing them under the weight of your love.

And the Response to Bernie’s Healing Suggestion:

Dear BDad,
Hi! I find myself having thoughts of you so I thought I would write. It’s 9 pm here in Texas, so it’s 10pm where you are in Connecticut. You’re either in Bed or watching the evening news.

I wanted to write to tell you that for the first time in almost TWO years,  I am not afraid when my low back twinges in pain because my low back pain is an ache and I know not to be afraid of it anymore. You’re an amazing person and full of life! I love that quality about you.

Thank you for reaching out to me so very long ago. You saved my life, CD, and I love you for it. Now, you have not heard the last of me. I plan on being around for a long time. You cannot get rid of me! 🙂

I love you, Dad, so very much.
