Every year at this time we pause to reflect the past year, and often the cumulative years, of what has brought us to this point in life. We have so much to be thankful for, but this year I am extra grateful.
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago, and this past April underwent a radical prostectomy, and it’s not a little surgery I assure you. The doctor’s prognosis is great, and I am doing well with my PSA score ‘undetectable’! Thank you, Jesus!
I tell you this not only because of being thankful, but I know that some of you may have had this common disease, as well, and I pray that your outcome is as good as mine. And, if you have not had your PSA blood test in the past year, GET IT DONE, NOW! Generally, it is slow growing but sometimes, like mine, it is not and can be very aggressive. Like me, you probably know others that did not get it checked in time. Don’t be one of those statistics.
Live life, but be responsible to get to the doctor once-a-year as they suggest. This has been quite a distraction from some productions, such as the last car of the American Freedom Train, which requires lots of handwork on my part. I appreciate your understanding and patience with me this past year.
I am sure I will receive emails from some of you about your experiences. If you still have those ‘bad cells’ in your body, I pray they are dissolved and gone, in Jesus’ name.
Thankful for life worth living,
