    During the Spring of 2019 I was experiencing back pain. I thought it was my lower back. I got an MRI of my lumbar spine and it showed a slightly bulging disk which seemed to explain the back pain. I started doing physical therapy to treat it. I …

    Overcoming fear
    Added Nov 12, 2018

    I was told I needed a liver transplant and I was worry at first. Then I thought about who created this body and my fear went away because I thought about what I had read in the Bible. ‘COURAGE in Time of Fear’ Psalm 46 and it over and over. I look at all things I have done in life and thought all the peoples I had met, and my family members I lo…

    Living with cancer
    Added Jan 31, 2015
    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.

    Great Christmas

    Just some thoughts
    Added Apr 12, 2017

    Was the day before Christmas
    and all through the house
    I’m the only one stirring
    that great big pot
    The stocking are stuffed
    and so am I
    with Christmas candy
    and a big pizza pie.
    With the second Christmas here
    and no cancer in sight
    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.
    All the family is here
    except my bro and wi…
