Should you trust your Health Care Provider?

Greetings,

OMG, have I got a tale for you…

Some of you might remember the issues I had with my Hep C Specialist, from my previous blog: Can our Medical Professionals just do their jobs please!

To re-cap quickly…I have gone through a staggering amount of unnecessary and uncomfortable situations during the past several months of treatment. He has made countless errors and as a result I simply cannot trust him with my health, Hep C treatment or my life!

As you all know, my viral load came back Zero in only 8 weeks of therapy…I Believe….and I Am Healthy, Strong and Transformed! (Sept 23rd). The doctor and pharmaceutical company would have you believe it was the medication that did the healing,  I am here to tell you that I worked harder on healing myself because of my lack of trust and faith in my specialist. I was Divinely guided as to how to proceed with the correct dosages for me and would release the virus the fastest. I used a combination of several tools, techniques and disciplines as well as herbs, vitamins and minerals.

You see, I am not a typical patient… I have spent over 22 years exploring, studying, certifying and facilitating several alternative-healing modalities, spiritual techniques and philosophies.  Through my training and strong connection to spirit I have come to understand the unique interconnection that we all have to everything.  I hold a B. Msc. in Metaphysical Science, Certification as a specialized Applied Kinesiologist, Certification as a Reiki Master & Teacher in two methods, Certification in Feng Shui, I founded the Beishu Method™ a unique form of healing taught to me by my spiritual guides and I facilitate programs and workshops. I have assisted thousands with their health and spiritual development…for God sakes, I am clairvoyance,  clairaudience and clairsentience, it is pretty hard to pull the wool over these eyes.

That being said, I, unlike my specialist, checked my blood work diligently so I could monitor the results of what my spiritual guides were having me do. I had to call Dr. Karim several times to address concerns I had about specific results. Please notice what I wrote:  I had to call him several times it wasn’t the other way around…him calling me with concern!

Then I noticed the error of all errors, he had ordered Hep B viral loads to be done…I am a Hep C patient, I may not be a doctor but I do know that is a different virus.

But wait, there’s more…

When I called to office to find out if he realized he had been checking the viral loads for the wrong virus twice now, his response was, “Am I bad.”  WHAT, are you joking me. What if I was a regular patient who didn’t even know I could check my results through ehealth.ca? What if I did but didn’t have a clue what to look for? What if I didn’t know my blood work was considered CRITCAL and I needed to be monitored closely? Was my health at risk with this man at the helm?

But wait, there’s more…

When I went to the lab for the correct test, they faxed the wrong blood work again and the lab had to call the office for the correct info!

But wait, there’s more…

At one point, I was soooo sick, I told Dr. Karim I couldn’t possibly work and it was causing financial difficulties, I was going to discontinue the medication. He told me he didn’t have my viral count back yet (this was of course due to the lab checking me for the wrong virus)…I could see by looking at the ehealth website that the results were in. He said he would assist me to apply for disability so I wouldn’t have to worry.

On some tests, the specialist has to call the lab and I couldn’t see the results for the viral load, is for the specialist only. It was a Friday, he told me it would be another week and I needed to go pick up my medication in case the virus was still active. So I went and picked up the meds, costing $13,700.00…then a miracle happened, he called me on a Saturday, a Saturday?… and voila, suddenly he had the results, no virus detectable! So was it that he simply didn’t call the lab until after I talked with him and then called me Saturday with the good news?

My intuition told me that doctors are making money – LOTS of money for prescribing drugs. Personally I think the practice of drug kickbacks to doctors is a big reason for the ever increasing prices of drugs and the huge problem of drug affordability. The practice of drug kickbacks is unethical and a danger to our health and the health of your loved ones, particularly if they are in the hospital and vulnerable to exploitation. My question is, “Do you the reader think this was a coincidence?” It very well could be, but my trust with him was broken after so many issues.

So…I thank you, if it wasn’t for your lack of due diligence and knowledge, I may still be ill. Because If I would have trusted him, I likely would have followed his every instruction instead of my spiritual guides. For all I know I might still be having Hep B tests done!

But wait, there’s more…

Last Friday, I had to surrender to going to Social Assistance, I have not worked for 3 months because the medication made me so ill.  I decided to follow up with what Dr. Karim suggested. I applied on line, someone called me, did a brief telephone interview and gave me a list of what I needed to bring in. One of the items was a note from the Doctor. I called and told them what I needed, a simple note confirming I was receiving treatment, when I was diagnosed and how much longer the treatment would be. I was told that he was busy and I wouldn’t be able to get it until the following week. I asked if I made the note and emailed it, could he just read and sign it so I could get the paperwork in? The receptionist told me that was a good idea, so I did and Dr. Karim wouldn’t sign it!

But wait, there’s more…

I sent this email:

Dr. Karim,

You are the one who encouraged me to follow through with disability, now they have finally called me back and I have to bring all my documents in. I have had to run around all day to get these together with my bucket so I don’t I don’t vomit in the car. If I don’t turn them in today I will need to wait another week – week and a half just for a second phone interview, I haven’t even seen anyone yet. 

It will take at least 2 months for me to get a cheque, I have enough money for 1 month…you are forcing me to go off the medication so I will feel well enough to work in a month when I have detoxed from the meds. I have no choice, I have no money and this is what Social Services needs to even give me an appointment. They will have a complete booklet for you to fill out when and if I get approved.

My injection day is today and I want you to know I have no intention of picking up my prescription or staying on this medication because without financial assistance, I cannot continue, I am tapped out!

Rev. Carol Lefevre B.Msc.

What were the results of my email you ask?…well, it is now Friday, one week later and I have still not heard from my specialist. Could it be that he isn’t aware of the risks of stopping these meds quickly? Could it be that he doesn’t care? Or perhaps he has read my blog…your guess is as good as mine.

Below is the Hippocratic Oath…see if there are any infringements for yourself…talk about stepping into the Karmic hotpot.

Restatement of the Oath of Hippocrates

I swear in the presence of the Almighty and before my family, my teachers, and my peers that according to my ability and judgement, I will keep the Oath and Stipulation:

To reckon all who have taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents and in the same spirit and dedication to impart a knowledge of the art of medicine to others. I will continue with diligence to keep abreast of advances in medicine. I will treat without exception all who seek my ministrations, so long as the treatment of others is not compromised thereby, and I will seek the counsel of particularly skilled physicians where indicated for the benefit of my patient.

I will follow that method of treatment which according to my ability and judgement I consider for the benefit of my patient and abstain from whatever is harmful or mischievous. I will neither prescribe nor administer a lethal dose of medicine to my patient even if asked, nor counsel any such thing, nor perform act or omission with direct intent deliberately to end a human life. I will maintain the utmost respect for every human life from fertilization to natural death and reject abortion that deliberately takes a unique human life.

With purity, holiness and beneficence I will pass my life and practice my art. Except for the prudent correction of an imminent danger, I will neither treat any patient nor carry out any research on any human being without the valid informed consent of the subject or the appropriate legal protector thereof, understanding that research must have as its purpose the furtherance of the health of that individual. Into whatever patient setting I enter, I will go for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief or corruption and further from the seduction of any patient.

Whatever in connection with my professional practice or not in connection with it I may see or hear in the lives of my patients which ought not to be spoken abroad I will not divulge, reckoning that all such should be kept secret.

While I continue to keep this Oath unviolated may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the art and science of medicine with the blessing of the Almighty and respected by my peers and society, but should I trespass and violate this Oath, may the reverse be my lot.

In Closing…

The bottom line is please become an active participant in your own health and healing process, never rely solely on our so called professionals and if in double get a second opinion.

Blessings of Health, Wealth and Happiness,

Rev. Carol Lefevre

I started doing some investigation and found the articles below.

Doctors Make Me Sick

by Jane Gaffin

While zero-tolerance policies clog court dockets and jam jails with non-violent weekend recreational drug users, it’s the dangerous drug-pushing criminals who should be behind bars, namely doctors who take patients off healthy nutrients and hook them on harmful prescription drugs.

The practice is detrimental to patients and financially beneficial to the quacks. Doctors receive 50 to 80 per cent kickbacks from the giant pharmaceutical companies for prescribing specific pills, especially experimental ones.

New drugs are not tested thoroughly before the government approves their release into the marketplace. Then doctors receive extra residuals for monitoring the reactions of the human guinea pigs and sending results to the drug companies in the spirit of research. Twenty years later, the patient is diagnosed with cancer or some other chronic disease.

Often the prescriptions are government-paid. Just as often the useless financial burden falls to the patient who doesn’t qualify for prescriptions under health care programs.

No problem. Plead poverty and the doctor’s office will submit a form to health care personnel. Then the doctor can load up the patient at government expense. The patient doesn’t have to worry about payment and the doctors get rewarded with kickbacks.

It’s a neat, tidy, slick fraud.

This is an exert from an article…Thursday, April 8, 2010

Minister Matthews wouldn’t “…call them kickbacks…but there are people who would.”

“Allowances” given Ontario to pharmacists by generic drug companies are to be eliminated said the province’s health minister Deb Matthews on Wednesday.

The idea is that the annual $750 million “subsidy” is to be used to pay for services to patients but even the pharmacists concede that 70% of the money is treated as rebates to fund operations and hike profits. Ms Matthews suggests ending the practice could reduce the cost of generics by half. To compensate, the minister suggested that the government will increase dispensing fees by $1 — to a total of $150 million to offset the reduction.

Donnie Edwards, a pharmacist in Ridgeway, Ontario thinks not:

“When you take $3 out and put $1 back in… I don’t think so. These dollars were used for professional services that pharmacists do everyday, in every town in this provinces”

Research based pharmaceutical companies support the change. Russell Williams, president of Rx&D, the companies’ association, said: “As partners in the health care system, we want to work with the government and health care providers to ensure that patients have access to the most appropriate treatment… through timely access to innovative medicines and vaccines… .”

Can our Medical Professionals just do their jobs please!

This Blog is to vent…I’m awake at 2:00am and can only think of how ticked off I am at the bullying and incompetency of my Specialist and his office staff. The medication I am on make me especially emotional, this is from the Department of Venetians Affairs website:

  • People getting treated for hepatitis C often find it difficult to sleep. The lack of sleep can lead to anxiety, irritability, and depression.
  • Most people taking interferon are more likely to get angry about things than they normally are. This can happen even to people who never seem to get angry about anything. You may find yourself yelling at people in traffic when that never happened to you before.
  • By being aware of a short temper, you can expect it and control it better. If your family members and close friends know you are on medications that can cause you to be mad about things, they will be more understanding.
  • Each doctor has their own style in consultation and patients can be sensitive and vulnerable especially when their health is under a microscope which is why I think it’s very important to immediately establish trust and mutual respect with a patient, whether it’s an initial consult or a long-time patient.
  • It’s not unusual to feel “down” while you are on interferon. This is purely a side effect of the medication. Stopping the interferon will make these feelings go away within 1-2 weeks.
  • If you find that you’re more than a little down–maybe you feel worthless or hopeless or have lost interest in your favorite activities–you could be depressed. Depression is a common side effect of interferon. It can be treated by either by changing how much interferon you take or by taking antidepressant medications.

Let’s talk about my experience with Specialist, Dr. Zamil Karim and see if he immediately established trust and mutual respect with me. The first meeting I sat in the waiting room for 20 min when there was no other patients, he breezes into the office 10 min after the scheduled appointment and proceeded to chat to a colleague about the new art for his office.

“How are you feeling?” He looked down across from me, eye level. As I open my mouth to answer him, he breaks eye contact. He swivels his chair to face his computer and begins to ask me about my medical history. I continue speaking but now to one side of his head. It was fairly obvious he hadn’t prepared for the appointment and spent a lot of time on the computer, understandable, he needed more info. My main concern was being assured that I would be covered for my treatment which is expected to last anywhere from 12-48 weeks. He assured me, “Not to worry, it will all be taken care of, no problem”.

I was sent for a liver scan and when that was back an appointment with the Hep C nurse was made. For this meeting I needed to bring my medications. I call the office to find out if the prescription has been faxed over, that takes another 3 days for Ashley (the receptionist) to get it handled. Instead of her calling and confirming they had received her fax, I had to…I’m wondering at what point I’m gonna get an hourly wage here, lol.

So off to the pharmacy I go, I stood in line at the pharmacy for 20 minutes only to discover it was $13,700.00 because Dr. Zamil Karim had not done his due diligence and paperwork through Fair Pharmacy.

I called Fair Pharmacy myself and they hadn’t received any paperwork. I was told if he called that day and registered everything via phone I could make my appointment the following Monday. The second option was he faxed everything in and it took 5-6 days to get approved and I would have to reschedule with the nurse. He chose the fax, so it wasn’t approved for my appointment and I had to wait another month to meet with the nurse.

He then had the audacity to tell me he had done the paperwork, unaware that I had already done my homework and called them so I knew he was misleading me. He again misrepresented himself when I asked him if I was his only Hep C patient (my spidey senses were going wild) and he said no. I was not surprised later when it was confirmed by the nurse on my first appointment that I was his sole Hep C patient at this time.

The appointment, let’s see how that went…

My friend and partner, the nurse and I waited for 15 minutes with no one in the office for the receptionist to get back from lunch. I was told Dr. Zamil Karim would be attending, he not only missed the meeting but had not left my file for the nurse or the paperwork for my lab work. When the nurse asked the receptionist if she could get it and fax it to the lab, she expected me to go home, look up the # of the lab and call her with it. Hello…GOOGLE, you are the professional with the so called resources, I am the patient here…again are you putting me on payroll?

5 days later I go to the Lab that Ashley was supposed to fax my blood work to, fasting, in line for 40 min, sick and emotionsal, I get to the desk, you guessed it, no paper work. When I called her, she told me it was faxed, she called the lab and they had problems with their fax machine, not realizing that I checked to see if the lab had any problems with the fax machine in the last several days. It was explained to me that it was their lifeline and was constantly checked throughout the day. I was also ensured that if it had been sent to another location, they would have a copy in their computer system…ugh, Ashley never even apologised, come to think of it neither has Dr. Zamil Karim for all the time and energy of mine they have wasted.

I called to set up a follow-up for my blood work and was not contacted by the office for 5 days, and only after I threatened to call the pharmaceutical company about the level of incompetent care I was receiving.  I just looked at my results on line, and they are tagged “critical patient notice.” Now what, this man who is supposed to be in charge of my health and healing, who has taken an oath to have my best interest at heart,  I should be able to trust the guy and I don’t.

It is my opinion that a doctor who has trouble doing his due diligence or recognizing a patients suffering will have a challenge developing that much needed level of trust.

I’m not a specialist, but I am certainly a client and on a final note…good customer service and patient service doesn’t happen by accident, it happens by design, and it happens because you invest the time to train the staff, and make your involvement with a patients best good your priority. I found this on Dr. John Patrick’s site:

Essential elements of the Hippocratic Oath

  • Transcendence – the recognition of the need for a power over and above mankind.
  • Teaching within a moral ethos – because medicine is a moral activity, the ethos of teaching is important.
  • Sanctity of life – theistic understandings of life naturally lead to a higher view of the value of human life.
  • Trust – a commitment to confidentiality enhances trust between practitioner and patient.
  • Collegiality – attempts to pressure practitioners to act against their consciences results in a decay of collegiality and demoralization of individuals.
  • Practitioner Integrity – when purity of motive and beneficence guide practice, one is respected in society.

The Hippocratic Oath

I swear by Apollo, Physician and Aesclepius, Hygeia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witness, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgement, this oath and this covenant:

To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live in partnership to him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brother in male lineage and to teach them this art – if they deserve to learn it – without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and taken an oath according to the medical law, but to no one else.

I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgement; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly, I will not give a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

I will not use the knife, not even from sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favour of such men as are engaged in this work.

Whatever house I visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.

Whatever I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outside the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to myself holding such things shameful to be spoken about.

If I fulfil this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honoured with fame among all men for all time to come. If I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.

Restatement of the Oath of Hippocrates

I swear in the presence of the Almighty and before my family, my teachers, and my peers that according to my ability and judgement, I will keep the Oath and Stipulation:

To reckon all who have taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents and in the same spirit and dedication to impart a knowledge of the art of medicine to others. I will continue with diligence to keep abreast of advances in medicine. I will treat without exception all who seek my ministrations, so long as the treatment of others is not compromised thereby, and I will seek the counsel of particularly skilled physicians where indicated for the benefit of my patient.

I will neither prescribe nor administer a lethal dose of medicine to my patient even if asked, nor counsel any such thing, nor perform act or omission with direct intent deliberately to end a human life. I will maintain the utmost respect for every human life from fertilization to natural death and reject abortion that deliberately takes a unique human life.

I came across a site that asks you to rate your health care provider, my gets a great rating. When i went to put in mine, a message came up that said I could not make any negative comments due to spam? What is the point of having this rating system?

I guess the question is after reading this, do you trust your Health Professional?

Hep C, the Law of Attraction and Creating our own Reality

Good Morning Everyone,

I recently received an email that read, “I’m sorry to hear about your Hep C, for someone who does such good and caring work, one has to wonder spirit’s purpose for afflicting this on you. I wish you all the best on your journey and look forward to your future blogs, take care.”

I have addressed how I physically came into contact with the hep C virus, and now I’d like to address it from more of a metaphysical view point. For those of you who don’t remember I hold a B. Msc. in Metaphysical Science, this is right up my alley. I would like to begin with a statement “I am an incredible and masterful manifestor”.  I understand that intention needs emotion and energy to move it, I understand the influence of polarity, the time space continuum and the list goes on. In fact I have been known to manifest items quite instantaneously;  like an empty table in a full pub holding 2 dozen hot wings and a pint of beer just as I walk in the door…oh and it is exactly what I was going to order before I arrived, and belongs to no one else there…pure magic. I have been teaching a Manifesting Workshop for 12 plus years and working diligently on the tools I encourage others to use so I like to demonstrate how it’s done in our everyday lives…walk my own talk and all that.

vacations 059the motly crew

Since 2010 I have been manifesting the time and space for me. I have been focusing on my process, my healing, my psyche, me, my, mine!!! I began working on my will-power, and got it mastered except for one area. Wine and cheese. I don’t know if it my Taurus sun or my moon and ascendant in Libra, but when it comes to great food and wine I am a true hedonist.

I know it sounds silly, but I can justify a glass or two or three of wine like no buddies business. I have quit drinking for months at a time, only to jump right back in, I really just love the taste, aroma or nose, textures and body of wine!

I decided it was time to live a more balanced lifestyle, turns out I could still justify the wine, there is always a B-day, anniversary, holidays, long weekends, hot summer days and of course stress! As with any issue that continually presents itself to me, I begin my dissection process…after all, I I figure if it’s bugging me and in my face, it is an issue, right? After a meditation one day I was discouraged with myself, feeling guilty and ashamed that I couldn’t get this piece, oh and after a good mental flogging, I made a choice.  I was in an emotional charged state, with big energy and visualized myself alcohol free, with a watermelon smoothie and I gave gratitude to the Universe for its support in giving up the wine and living a more balanced lifestyle. Three months later I have elevated liver enzymes and within another three months I am diagnosed with Hep C. Yesterday I sat in the sun for an hour, drinking a strawberry and watermelon smoothie and thought, “this isn’t so bad, tasted great, has texture and aroma…I could definitely give up a wine spritzer for this. I’m telling you I am a “master manifestor.”

In the throes of dealing with some of my shadow stuff, I re-connected with a book I read in 1994, “Your Secret Self”. It’s an astrology book with guidelines on how to heal and deal with placements in the twelfth house. The twelfth house represents our unconscious mind, and I love to go there.

I have Pluto in Scorpio conjunct my North Node in the twelfth house. Confused? I know, you gotta know a little about astrology for this piece. The bottom line is that there is some tricky stuff for me to deal with in my unconscious mind. The three biggest pieces are:

  1. it’s OK if I’m not always a nice person, even if I’m a healer and trying to shift humanity, I have a shadow side! I don’t have to like everyone, it’s OK to swear, expressing my anger doesn’t mean I’m a bad person,  healers can get sick too and I love wine and cheese!
  2. WHAT…I’ve been trying to keep that thing locked in the closet for 50 plus years…yikes.  Apparently I can turn these dark sides and shadows into good forces in my life if I embrace and love them. So I decided to start with my Hep C…by embracing it and sharing my story with all those spirit puts in my blogs path.

On the flip side, the other two pieces of the twelfth house puzzle are easier to deal with:

  1. I would benefit by a career in the health profession and holistic and spiritual practices.
  2. This placement has more than any other twelfth house placements, a greater resourcefulness and a reservoir of inner power to draw upon in times of stress and I will create situations and circumstances to heal my shadow and prove this to myself.

So, back to creating our own reality…

Ten days ago when my cousin Juanita was here visiting, her husband really wanted to go camping, fishing and gold panning. I (through the assistance of the Universe of course) was given the opportunity to create an incredible 3 day holiday at the lake with friends. Walter got to fish, camp and even go on a gold adventure. Turns out our friends just happened to have those exact days off and have a deluxe spot at Nicola Lake, I love how manifesting works.

While there I noticed this very cool little trailer and asked who lived there, said I’d like to connect. The locals call her the Gypsy lady, and said she’s not around much. Thirty minutes later, guess who pulled into the grounds? I walked by a water ski and got all excited, thinking about how I’d love to go for a ski, 45 min later someone came over and asked if someone would like to go water skiing, they needed a spotter. Juanita and I went for a walk and I mentioned it would be nice to go for a canoe ride. Later while talking to Gypsy lady, thanked her for creating such lovely energy in her space. She told me that her friends come kayaking and wondered if I had a kayak…you guessed it, someone showed up and told me we could use their canoe or kayak anytime while we were there!

Perhaps everyone is creating and manifesting more than they realize, they just don’t give credence or gratitude for the awesome everyday things, I can’t say for sure. Small things like…hmmm, here’s and example…Juanita and I were in one of those blow up tube things you can sit in on the water, cooling down and being oh so grateful that we manifested this sweet little toy when a thought, vision and feeling came over me, “If we had some paddles we could paddle out and let the current pull us back in, it would be so much easier”. In that instant I saw the light go on, then she added her thoughts, vision, feelings and energy to the idea…2 minutes later we passed our friends boat and waiting for us, you got it 2 paddles. The power of two or more when manifesting is a beautiful thing. My week with Juanita showed me how much easier it is when two or more come together with the same vision.

So there’s an important lesson I’ve learned in my years of manifesting, and that is this: If you ask and then you receive, follow through and be grateful!!!

Ask yourself this, “If I ask the Universe for something, then I receive it and don’t follow through, what message will that send?” For instance, when I had the opportunity to go water skiing, did I say “no thanks, I haven’t done that for years, I’m too old?” NO…but I can tell you I could hear everyone else thinking it. While I was making my grand come back I realized I hadn’t been on a slalom ski since 1989 and oh ya, “I’m not wearing a wetsuit either!” I did great, I popped right up on one ski, had three good runs, and survived a miraculous triple cartwheel across the water on my final wipe out. Fun? Hell yes…dumb, perhaps I could have been a little more prepared and less excited.

So here’s something for you to think about…what if we drifted by the boat and were too lazy to get out and pick up the paddles that we asked the Universe for? What if I didn’t go and acknowledge Gypsy lady and her fab energy? What if I never followed through with those little things I manifest? You heard of the little boy who cried wolf, right! Would the Universe continue to gift me with these items or would it think I was crying wolf too?

With that being said I take full 100% responsibly for my Hep C situation. This virus can lead to liver cancer if gone untreated. I know that, and  although I am all for healthy, holistic ways of healing I know that the allopathic system and  medicine has its place. I might be an extremist but I’m not ignorant. Following an extreme natural supplement regiment and intend to prove that doing so will shed the virus in record time…that’s my new manifestation by the way! I am in gratitude that the Universe has supported my once again in my visions, dreams and personal goals for myself…so remember, watch your hopes, wishes and dreams like a hawk and when you get what you asked for, acknowledge it, give gratitude and follow through!

In total love and gratitude,

Carol
