teeth. Fascinating, because each one of them connects directly to a part of the body, organ or joint. So, who knows? It's some kind of whole body work going on. Try your best to 'see it through'. I like that you have enough humour to see/say you are on day nine of a seven day fast.
Family, yes--you *are* blessed, it sounds like. I made just one meal-dinner for my housemate/dear friend-partner. We typically eat only dinner. Still, some days I had to lie down after grating a carrot. It was hard sometimes, byut also satisfying, to preapare something, even without tasting it at all--that is odd. :-) I went 29 days. You are into some healing terrain though, now, having passed seven days. You might be resolving stuff that you'll never know was getting itself lined up to become "disease". That's the way it works, a lot of times.
Godspeed. and bless you son's heart--tell him lots of people are (and will be)happy he's helping you get as well as you can be.
