Final surgery coming up!

Well, it’s been a while – and that’s good. I’m healing very well. The medicine side effects appear to be here to stay … that’s ok. I’m kinda getting used to them.

Just wanted to share that my (hopefully) final surgery is scheduled for Wednesday, May 30th.  Not that anyone looks forward to surgery, but I anticipate this surgery as my final chapter with this 6 months of addressing cancer.

I will still have to stay on the meds for 4+ years. But, if God permits, that will be it – and that sounds wonderful!

I still covet your prayers, especially as this last surgery approaches. I also want to praise the Lord for the doors He has opened due solely to this journey.  A friend gave me the book, “Off Script” by Cary Schmidt.  It has been a blessing and a rebuke to me. But I love the reminder that God is the potter and we are the clay … and that clay does not have a will of its own. I am so thankful God chose to use cancer for personal growth and external ministry in my life.  God has been amazingly good to me!
