My Current Status

Hello everyone.

I thought I should let you know that at this time I am doing well with no pain. I am still flying from the good news of the scans being good and not showing cancer anywhere else except in the prostate gland. Usually the attitude is “wait and see” for prostate cancer because it is usually such a slow-growing kind. They tell me that this is not that kind. I have heard ‘very aggressive’ several times.

I think the fact that it hasn’t spread to other places is significant because there are different treatment options available. I will know a lot more after the MRI on January 30. We can see God’s hand in this. I can even thank God for turning 65, because it was my coming of age that prompted me to go for a 2 ½ years overdue annual exam. The reason I went was that I thought it would be good to tidy things up in my life; a physical, a hearing test, getting some teeth fixed and signing up for Medicare.

I say all that to encourage you, the ones I love, to get physicals and testing done, because early detection is a lot easier to deal with than if the bad cells having a chance to grow and spread. Christina and I are trusting the Lord for a good end. I John 5:14 says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” Our desire is to line our will up with God’s will and watch Him work!
