Kings and Queens.
They rise and fall.
But the enduring relationships of our lives are filled with royals who trudge through all the dark and treacherous places with us. My queen is a royal of royals navigating life with me for over 30 years and this week we begin another journey into what at times has felt like a dark abyss.
I have cancer.
I am having surgery on Tuesday, May 18.
Those are the facts.
What is true is that it was discovered early and for that we are grateful beyond words!
What is also true is that I am assigned to one of the top surgeons in the field of Prostate Cancer who has pioneered a procedure previously not thought possible called Precision Prostatectomy which I have tested and qualified for. This procedure will, if successful, retain some of the prostate which means that compromised bodily functions have a greater degree of recovery, in a shorter period of time. For this we are also deeply grateful!
The surgery is major. The prognosis is good.
The count down is on.
I’m Dealing in HOPE!
I’ll be back soon.
Thank you for all your prayers, past and future!
Prayers of continued healing both mentally and physically. God has you!
Thank you Bobbie!
Praying for you my friend🙏❤🙏❤🙏
Thank you, Kathy!
My prayers are with you Gene. I too was diagnosed with cancer a month ago, breast cancer. I’m recovering from surgery now. They caught it early and prognosis is very good. I have felt God beside me the whole way. He has put people in my life that have helped me navigate the process every step of the way. We are in His grip! God bless you and Brenda.
Thank you Kim! I’m sorry to hear of your diagnosis but celebrate the good prognosis with you! Yes, we are in His grip!!
Prayers my friend
Chris and I are with you both. We love you both and are holding close in our hearts.. it sounds so clinch’ to say we understand, we’ve been there because each journey is unique. But I do know Gods got this firmly in his grasp and you are destined for great things (look what you have done so far!) and this is part of that plan in some way!! Jeremiah 29:11 Much love to you both!
