I have cancer. Wow. That is one strange sentence to say about myself. I’ve been many things in my life, but a cancer patient never even hit my “maybe sometime in the way, way out there future” radar. I don’t even understand how this happened. I don’t smoke, don’t eat much red meat, not around chemicals… have they found carcinogens in chocolate and I didn’t hear about it?
We did get an encouraging report today and I am so glad – but I’ve got cancer. It’s very probably the kind that can be treated and cured or at least put in long term remission – but I’ve got cancer. The doctor is very optimistic – but I’ve got cancer. I’ve got cancer.
My life has changed forever.
1 Hear me, LORD, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
Save your servant who trusts in you. Psalm 86: 1,2
