At times like this I remember a former patient who was clinically dead before being revived.
He told me how he was moving towards the white light, saw loved ones who had died before him, the whole thing.
After recounting this he said "Don't get me wrong, I want to live. But I have no fear of dying anymore."
It was an amazing feeling hearing those words from the lips of someone who had actually experienced it.
God bless.

Marko, thank you. You’re wonderful.


All of you, thank you and please keep it up. I’m on chemo cycle right now and this has been best day of any cycle so far. I genuinely know, believe, have utter faith and trust that if it is His will, I will receive a miracle or more. I feel utterly humbled and blessed. It is incredible. The homily at Mass Sunday evening was about having no fear. It was wonderful. Gettting our of and into Mass I face a gauntlet of hugs and love every time. I have the same here from all of you. I love you and you are a blessing to me. I continue to pray for you, that the Holy Spirit washes over you like the dew fall, that you’re filled with love, that you know you’re loved, and that His glory strengthens you and your faith, and that it grows like a mustard seed.

I’ll post updates as warranted or requested.

Love to all.

Don

Best of luck Airdrop01, you will be in my families prayers.


That Farrow bloke you executed today, are you sure he's dead?
Well I chopped his head off, that usually does the trick.
Yes, don't get clever with me Baldrick. I just thought you might have lopped off a leg or something by mistake.
No, the thing I chopped off had a nose.

Drew (and all): Thank you so much. Today is a bit rough but still blessed. I again pray for all of you. Today, I forgot when I woke up immediately and in the bathroom got down on my knees and apologized to God for forgetting to do it first thing. I pray daily that you feel the Holy Spirit and know as such that your faithful prayers are loved, and that your faith grows and grows and that you all see God’s blessings.

Don

Even on the "rough" days I encourage you to do this Sir.

Philippians 3:13-14
"Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have laid hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus".

We are each marching closer to this prize that You Desire for us on this day, which is all we are given. If tomorrow comes then we will strain
toward the prize again and with each day we recognize the Blessing of this unique unwritten journey we each live. Lord, please open our eyes
to the Miracles around and within us and let us give Great Thanks that You care for us and are providing what we each need today.
Amen

IHL, Drew

I have not been in here much lately and reading this has been hard, tempered only by your strength, wisdom and faith, Don. God's will be done and I know He listens to our prayers, so may He keep you well, until your days here are past.

Thank you, Coasty. I read this as I get ready for a new three day chemo cycle that starts in an hour. I just finished praying thanks for this day, for all of my blessings, and for every single person that is praying for me, as I do every morning. I prayed as always that His will be done. I ask for a miracle, and believe it can happen. I pray that everyone praying feels His love, that the Holy Spirit washes over them and kindles their faith to grow further, and they k ow they are loved and their lives are a gift.

On the practical earthly front, the symptoms aside from the chemo side effects (chemo brain, fatigue, neuropathy, etc) seem to be getting better. I do not know if this is significant medically...or if this means anything, but something called CEA in my blood is a marker for cancer. Normal is less than 2.5. Metastasized is 20. On 5/24 mine was 144.5. On July 3 it was 41. So crazy insane bad to just horribly bad. But that’s big time improvement...at least to my degraded chemo brained and non medical mind. I really think I’m going to get a miracle. This last week has been really good. I’m very tired because of low red counts but that’s okay.

Chemo today includes some of the bad stuff that gave me 7/10 pain in joints because of the bone metastasis . Pray for me brothers and sisters! Thank God for this and every day and be glad in it!

Love to all,

Don

Stay strong! You're going in the right direction!

BTW, have they told you about Neulasta for post chem bone pain? You should look into that.
