What I am attempting to write now is not easy. Not easy primarily because I am now 66 years old. Not only that, I was born in 1947 in Orion, Bataan, Philippines a “meningitis baby”, was cuddled by my father in his loving arms without bringing me down for three days.

429611_10151392732207732_1607681115_n Glenn A. Bautista / November / 2012 – My Surgeon’s sketch handed to my wife, Lorna, after my surgery – – indicating 2 parts of my left and right intestines removed that resulted in an ostomy, which I thoroughly enjoy. By now, I have become an expert in managing an ostomy. I didn’t know God’s design can be improved! . . . the best surgeon I’ve ever met! Today, I read about a case whose path I seem to be following. Same stage 3-4 cancer, same chemo meds but whose cancer cells have spread to her liver, kidneys, etc. She is still alive and, by now, is on Stivarga, which seem to be a better cure for cancer, but with scary side effects too. This is the reason why in, advance, I am taking care of my liver, and later on, my other organs without hearing from my oncologists. This is my 2nd day w/o chemo pills and I am glad I paused. I am in the process of strengthening my immune system, taking IP-6, DMG, Resveratrol, Dim-Plus, etc. I have been taking Xango too which is an all-cure drink which proves to be very helpful in soreness, bruises, itchiness, and overall health. My elder brother supplies me with Xango. If you gargle xango, you’ll never have soreness in your mouth. It can even heal injuries from having taken in fish bones. It hastened the healing of my surgery, both in and out.

  • Ruby Lopez Refuerzo: Have you tried the fresh guayabano ? Look for it in the internet.
  • Fatima Crochet: Glenn, I looked up Xango and it seems that the active ingredient there is Xanthone which comes from the rind of mangosteen! And it’s the part we throw away when we eat mangosteen! Ay sus!
  • Maria Antonieta Vasquez Salazar: Im scared of being opened up and all but I faithfully follow you up Glenn to add my spiritual and psychic forces to the prayerful appeals of all your friends and loved ones to heaven. Keep on rollin’ and God bless us all who pray with you for a miraculous recovery. Faith binds us all! Fatima Crochet: I also looked up ostomy, ehehehe , dami ko natututunan sa yo Glenn …
  • Glenn A. Bautista: Thanks, Fats . . the feeling is mutual, ika nga.
  • Mila Yulo Cabunag: Glenn, xango is good and so is guyabano tea. heres to a better life n praise God for the chance to live again!

Glenn’s PET Scan
– 2/ 4/ 2013 – an excerpt : This is what the PET scan reveals, even after the mother active tumor (cancer) the size a bit smaller than a golf ball was removed – by resection of the entire sigmoid colon (Nov 23, 2013) CT/CAT scan’s results had not been discussed yet.
10:04 pm friday
Glenn: I wl try to upload now my PET scan video where the doctor explains . . .
David: Oo Dad……. Is it bad? In your opinion?
Glenn: hindi naman, but it tells me visually about what may be invading me, although not sure what they really are . . inflammation, cancer cells, etc . . so to be sure I will hv more aggressive treatment like the IV chemo every three weeks aside from my chemo pills . .
10:17pm
David: Ok Dad, ok naman ang pag receive mo ng katawan mo sa chemo? (How did your body take the chemo treatment/)
Glenn: kaya naman (I can hack it), losing weight, darkening of both feet (spots) and a little on my hands, cracking (peeled off already) of d lower lip . . all wl go back to normal when finished w/ chemo . .
David Bautista: Dad, you won’t let the doctor finish his sentences. Are you sure you heard what he had to say before you interrupted him 2 times? Did you talk more after the video?
6:33am – Glenn A. Bautista: Yup, I noticed that . . yes he mentioned further about where the yellow blinks were, but that would also be addressed by the IV chemo . . . also, because of my interruptions (informing him of my past CT/CAT scan results, he showed me more infos about my other organs that may be under attack . . . I wl upload the video later . . luv u – – ps: Related reading -(anybody who can interpret this better than I can, in relation to my CT & PET scan results, can write a comment, and will greatly be appreciated)

Glenn – seated below his locker / UPCFA, Diliman, QC

Well, as a freshman, I started to meet with my classmates and schoolmates at the locker room. This means that I had the opportunity to meet with both the Fine Art students, as well as the Architecture students using the same fourth floor of Gonzales Hall, also known as the UP Main Library. The locker room was a common space for all fine art students where we eventually formed a singing group called, “Ma’s Concern“, meaning, mothers’ concern. There we shared creative expressions using photography, graffiti poems and visual artworks on locker doors- – both outside and inside our lockers. After classes, we spent some amount of time to crack jokes, unwind by singing while I played the guitar, recite poems and just do anything to shake off the rigid and demanding art lessons and requirements for the day. On the right wing of the fourth floor were Architecture students we had come to know and become friends with. Because of this, some members from Fine Arts and Architecture formed another singing group called, “CAFAsingers” and “Gentle Rain” initiated by Nonong Pedero. He is more known now as “Dero”. Interactions between male and female art students also led to forming photography groups called, ALM and BLM.  ALM stands for “available light movement” and BLM, I have forgotten. Help! This is all for now, and since I will be including this narrative in my blogs which I recently resumed, I will continue, now and then to add more related images and stories.

Mariquit Soriano: correct… and since I have set my wall to private and thus didn’t expect that I would be tagged, am wondering, hehehe –who is Armand?? Torch or no torch, the Tiongsons are dear, dear friends and of course Ging falls in that category. Glenn is a special friend, ehem.
Ging Ticzon Tiongson: Of course Kit…Glenn is a special friend & remains to be one despite the “separation!” ehem..haha..just found a long lost friend on facebook…what facebook can do!!!
Glenn A. Bautista: No one ever lost me, my spirit is omnipresent, hehe. Armand? – – is a younger dear frat bro, friend & UP mate, the younger bro of Emily, my UP Fine Arts mate. Do we have reason enough to “kitakits” when I come home, possibly this Dec?
Mariquit Soriano: oh wow, of course Glenn! Ging Ticzon Tiongson and I would love to catch up on kuwentos and all. That is if you’re not scared to be smothered with kisses and hugs from the both of us. Excited na rin si Ging, hehe.

Armand Bacaltos: Sketched during one of our gatherings at Ad's resort in Calamba. Four years later, this was brought by his sisters to be exhibited at the chapel where his wake was held after he passed away in December 2005. Our dear departed friend will be in our hearts forever. Glenn A. Bautista: Sonny from QC would pick me up from Imus just to play golf in Carmona - Southwoods Golf course. Didn't get to take pictures then. Would have been great if I have pictures to remember him by. At least, I have a Callaway driver from him which I still use...See More

  1. Anita C. Ilan, Cesar Angeles, Armand Bacaltos, Arthur Belarmino Uy, Louie N Jane A, Samuel Santamaria, Len Francisco, Felix Gonzales, Erickson A. Sandel, David Bautista, Len Francisco, Emily T. Abonal, Maria Antonieta Vasquez Salazar, Howard Borja, Edgar Salazar, Jeff T. Dizon, Teresa Liceralde Elloso Celdran. David Bautista, Howard Borja, Susan Aldecoa, Pablo Baen Santos, Leonilo Doloricon, Vics Magsaysay, Andy Sta. Maria, Maria Antonieta Vasquez Salazar, Jun Campos, Jun de Guzman, Gabriel C. SantaMaria, Osamu Yamada, Pandak, Bernard Mendoza, and six others like this.

    Maria Antonieta Vasquez Salazar: Was lucky to have heard you all three!

    Glenn A. Bautista: That’s good to know, Tonette. My involvement with these three singing groups was almost simultaneous, yet no conflicts experienced for we were all close friends.

    Jeanne Jacob: Wow Glenn! The world is indeed small, as I met Nonong in Tokyo, who composed the Philippine entry sung by Joel Navarro, and we’ve remained friends ever since.

    Glenn A. Bautista: Jeanne, happy to learn that you have become friends with “Dero”. We’ve known each other for quite sometime now and met with him in Makati before I left for the US. Hector and Mike are his brothers. Have you met them?

    Jeanne Jacob: Haven’t met Dero’s brothers. I last met up with Dero in 2008, but didn’t manage to meet up on my trips to Pinas in 2010 and 2011. I translated the lyrics of one of his songs into Japanese.

    Glenn A. Bautista: Wow, Jeanne, so you are proficient in Japanese. I can do German, Spanish but none of the Asian languages. I lived with a Vietnamese family in Pearland, TX for two year and can’t remember a single word, except “YO”, meaning “cheers” while drinking beer, hehe.

    Jeanne Jacob: Schoen. Do you have any chance to use German these days? Spanish of course is widespread in the US.

    Glenn A. Bautista: None at all, Jeanne, but I can still remember to get by when the need to speak it arises. Had Lorna and I known that Spanish would be so useful, we would have been more serious in learning it while in college. I even supported the “Cuenco Bill” vs Spanish and joined the rally cutting on my Spanish class, stupid really . . .

    Cary Abeleda: Memories talaga! I do remember the CAFA Singers very well!! A home grown singing group of the UP College of Fine Arts and Architecture!!! We were all so young then. Totoy ka pa and quite shy. The ladies of Fine Arts didn’t know how to handle you!

    Glenn A. Bautista: Cary, hahaha, didn’t know how to handle me . . . I was always willing to interact w/ them and assist them, especially, with their art assignments, hehe, happy memories talaga!

    Bert Quibuyen: Spanish is useful. Found that out when we did a driving tour of southern Europe. French and Italians understand Spanish. The French won’t speak to you if you speak in English but will if in Spanish. Italians understand Spanish too. The official language in Barcelona is Catalan but Spanish is widely spoken.

    Willie Nepomuceno: perhaps a little chabacano can get you by. hola

    Glenn A. Bautista: Yes, Willie, I know that to be true. My father spoke both ‘chabacano’ and Spanish, and he communicated quite well with our former ‘helper’ who spoke ‘chabacano’ . . .

    Samuel Santamaria: Oye como va, mi ritmo.

    Glenn Bautista: Hi Onie, those prints were many years back. And by now, they are no longer available.
    The next best is for you to avail of good reproductions of my artworks from this online international site :

    http://glenn-studio.artistwebsites.com/galleries.html

    This site is my ‘art outreach’. At most I earn $10 for a print sale depending on size. The site may not accept printing if the image I have uploaded does not satisfy their size and resolution requisite. So, you may just order again the next smaller size. They are quite efficient in refunding or re-applying the amount involved in ordering. The amount of my originals may also be found in this site.

    Yes, communication is salvation. Without Facebook as my ‘lifeline’ to knowledgeable people in alternative medicine, cancer survivors, old and new friends, I wouldn’t be around today. The good Lord, indeed, supplies all our needs. Ailment as a curse becomes a blessing, to me and to others.

    In appreciation and gratitude,

    glenn

    Good morning Glenn,

    I’m so glad that once again, in your case, medical prognosis is inaccurate. Somehow, I have that notion about the power of positive thinking over the human body. And if there is any person with that power, I must say it’s you. (Your conversation with your friend Byron is very revealing.)

    Your story is very inspiring. Sometime soon, maybe we can personally get to discuss life views (the way you did with Byron). Regarding this tread, I will pre-empt asking permission from you and share your story with the CAFAs. I think you know that the CAFAs genuinely care for all persons and activities CAFA. We had such a unique, small college then. We needed to bond together closely to compete with the other larger colleges in the University.

    Just yesterday, I spoke with Rody Picar. He was surprise to hear about your story. He reminisced about your special days together in the Gentle Rain.

    Last time around, I told you I would contact your son in the Philippines re the prints you showed me last time. Well, I haven’t done that yet but I’ll go to it when I get back. In my house, I have a few pieces of the works of my artist friends where I hope to have one of yours.

    Best wishes again and regards,
    Onie

    Glenn’s Blogs

    Hi Onie,

    After being confined for a month at a hospital in Baytown for surgery,
    I had a pronouncement from my oncologists that I had four months to live.

    That was last November, 2012

    I was supposed to have a 6-month invasive chemotherapy to which I agreed.
    However, I only lasted for 12 days and decided to quit. I couldn’t go on because of the side effects of chemo. Since then, I never visited Smith Clinic here in Houston nor consulted with my oncologists.
    It’s almost a year now, and I am quite fine playing golf, creating artworks and writing blogs.
    I have also been helping other cancer patients whose doctors gave up on them, and other cancer patients who, likewise, have decided to quit chemo. I have also been delivering messages to groups in Texas and in California about my miraculous healing. All I did was ask the Lord for healing and that I was willing to meet Him halfway. Here’s a recent interview that may shed more light about my health, art and life:

    http://www.globatron.org/interviews/glenn-bautista

    Blessings,
    glenn

    http://www.globatron.org/interviews/glenn-bautista

    Rod Morales: The truth is I just quickly browse over my emails and do not normally read details, the reason that I didn’t know you were diagnosed to have the big C. Your faith healed you and I strongly believe that for I too had experienced healing through prayers, though what I had were not really serious sickness such as what you had. From a friend to another this is what I can do, though you are already healed I will continue to pray for your complete and total healing. And with us bombarding heaven with our prayers I am sure God will let you continue on with the wonderful things you are doing for other people. God bless Glenn
