The happy ending of a cancer journey reminds me of the magic of being human
Overwhelmed today, discuss palliative care referral at next visit. I look at the date. It was the summer 10 years ago. Shortly after that consultation, my pregnancy became complicated and my patients were hastily redistributed. By the time I returned, some had died and others dispersed. In oncology, 10 years amounts to a sheer eternity.
So, what is a patient given a year or so to live doing here? Seized by the thought of some dreadful mixup, I apologise that I need a few minutes to scour her history, kicking myself at being unprepared. Clicking on various entries, I piece together her story.
She struggled through the chemotherapy I had prescribed and eventually stopped due to the toxicities I had feared. She was told she would need surveillance. Her very first post-treatment scan was clear. A second scan confirmed this and then a third. Even the radiologist was puzzled. Careful comparison with serial past scans shows no evidence of disease, where previously there were widespread areas of abnormality throughout the abdomen and pelvis.
In many Eastern belief systems, such as Buddhism and Shintoism, salt is used both as a purifier and to repel evil.

Often, salt is used in purification spells. It can be incorporated into smudging and asperging, and in some NeoWiccan traditions, it is used on the altar to represent the element of earth. It should be noted that some groups associate salt with water, because of its origins in the sea. Black salt , which is a blend of regular salt and other ingredients, is used in protection magic in some traditions.
Salt has maintained its usefulness in modern folk magic traditions as well. Many areas include salt as part of local superstition - perhaps the best-known bit of advice is that if you spill salt, you should throw a bit of it over your shoulder. This either brings good luck or keeps evil at bay, depending on which source you consult.
