Challenges, Challenges, Challenges But God!!!
Saturday, October 17, 2020
I have enjoyed my fellowship with the Rowdy Rebels tremendously. This past week has not been good because of my medical condition and the prognosis from Dr's. Going in to this Fall Challenge I contemplated if I would be able to participate despite what lay ahead. I started to call you, thinking that was possible, but discovered that doing so was not possible. Last week got away from me as I deliberated on the amount of purpose I'd be able to input. I went to bed, waking up around 330 am, to discover that my daily activity had not been done. That's why I decided to write and share some information.
I have been diagnosed with aggressive cancer and because of my age and medical situation, I have been told that radiation is the only modality for me at this time. I am thinking about that treatment and will be meeting with a radiation oncologist as soon as it is scheduled. I'll receive radiation 4 days a week for about 2 months. I am told the toll on my body will be debilitating. Should it metastasize hormone treatment will be added because the reward will be better then the risk. I am not worried about that but I am worried that I will not be able to give 100% to the Rowdy Rebels.
Although I am stepping over to the sidelines, you guys will still have my support. Once all the dust settles I'd like to be an addition to the team. Again, I have to decide which road to take. Do nothing until it gets worse or take the radiation. I will keep you posted.
I will still be a faithful participant with Spark People.
God is my Rock and my Salvation, whom shall I fear? I am praying for God's healing and speedy recovery. I am also praying for you and your families for peace, happiness and good health.
God loves you guys and I love you guys and there is nothing you guys can do about it.
May peace and happiness be with you all!
