A Christian Speaking & Writing Ministry

Thanks for praying.  Let me give you all an update, so you can continue to pray with purpose.


Today was a follow-up appointment for the CT scan I had done last week.  It was not what I had anticipated.  As the oncologist shared, they were trying to diagnose a lesion found on my kidney, when that hasn't come to the forefront as the major issue. 

The abdominal pain that I have been experiencing is a result of fluid in the abdomen, as well as thickening of the tissue; both evidence that the cancer is "alive and well."  So, I will be starting on a new regime of chemo on Monday.  It will be once every week for three weeks and then one week off,  Right now, I am continuing to take pain meds every four hours, but a time release morphine has been added that lasts 12 hours, so will only have to be take twice a day and will provide more consistent pain relief.


"Sometimes He calms the storm, and sometimes He calms His child."  Personally, I'd love it if Hed do both.  Please pray,
