MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!

MY INTRO

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY PERSONAL BLOG!!! I THOUGHT WHY NOT SHARE MY PERSONAL GAINS & STRUGGLES THAT LIFE PUTS OUT TO EACH AND ONE OF US. I FEEL THAT THROUGH THE GIFT OF "GIVING & SHARING", THERE IS NO WAY BETTER THAN START THIS BLOG WHICH IS ALL ABOUT ME, MY OHANA (FAMILY), HOALOHA (FRIENDS), AND EVEN ENEMIES WHICH ARE THE VERY ONES I NEED TO LOVE AND ACCEPT.


I'LL SAY THIS STRAIGHT UP, I DON'T HOLD BACK MY FEELINGS FOR ANYONE AND IT'LL COME OUT OF MY MOUTH ON HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU AND OTHERS. I DON'T GO BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK AND START RUMOURS WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND AND FINALLY HIT ITS TARGET. WHY TAKE THE LONG ROUTE WHEN I CAN GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT IS THE "REAL" WAY OF LIVING LIFE, "BE REAL" AT ALL TIMES EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING.


ON THE OTHER NOTE, "I AM" THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM THE WAY "I SEE IT". I AM NOT SPEAKING FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK OR "CONCEITEDNESS". "THIS IS" WHAT I CHOOSE TO SEE MYSELF EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY BED AND THANK "AKUA" (GOD) FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY TO LIVE, REGARDLESS OF REGRETS FROM THE "YESTERDAYS" TO THE FEARS OF "TOMMOROWS".


IN MY EYES, LIVING A "BEAUTIFUL LIFE" CAN ONLY BE ATTAINED BY "CHOICE" AND IT REQUIRES "INTEGRITY", "HONESTY", "UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", "FORGIVENESS" AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, "LOVE".


AS MY BEAUTIFUL ANCESTORS HAVED ALWAYS BELIEVED:


'Ike aku, 'ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana 'ohana.


WHICH MEANS, RECOGNIZE OTHERS, BE RECOGNIZED, HELP OTHERS, BE HELPED; SUCH IS A FAMILY RELATIONSHIP.


SO ONCE AGAIN, "WELCOME TO MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!"

MY FUN WEEKEND IN FAIRBANKS, ALASKA!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!


I SPENT THE LAST WEEKEND IN FAIRBANKS, ALASKA WITH H3!!! 

BEFORE I HEADED OVER TO FAIRBANKS I STOPPED IN ANCHORAGE FOR MY DOCTOR APPOINTMENT FOR...


IRAP is a targeted method of reducing inflammation in a joint using your own blood product. At ORCA, we are using this injection for conservative management of chronic knee pain and osteoarthritis. Results have shown to reduce inflammation and pain in patients for six to twelve months.

IRAP (Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein) is an anti-inflammatory protein such as Interleukin-1 (IL-1) within the inflamed joint.

IRAP is a product derived from your own blood. A small amount of your blood (60cc per injection) is drawn into a syringe. This is about the same or less than when you donate blood to the blood bank. A centrifuge is then used to separate the blood into 3 parts; plasma, platelet rich plasma, and red blood cells. The plasma is drawn off usually 15-30cc of volume and the red blood cells and platelets are combined and removed normally 7-10cc of volume. The second part of the process involves the use of specialized centrifuge device that uses a small glass bead to further isolate the IRAP to a higher concentration, normally 5-7cc of volume. This is then injected directly into the joint space using a 26 gauge needle.




I GOT TWO MORE SESSIONS (ONE WEEK PER SESSION) TO GO AND I''L BE GOOD FOR 6-12 MONTHS!!!


SCARY AS IT LOOKS, BUT MY AWESOME DOCTORS AND STAFF ARE CONFIDENT AND SO AM I WITH NO FEAR!!!
