It is absolutely unbelievable to me that in this scariest and seemingly most unjust time in my life – I also feel the most blessed, with so much to be thankful for.
I have been experiencing an incredible amount of love and support. Proving how beautiful people and life can be. The first and foremost - the most beautiful of all - is my Jacquelyn.
And the tangible comfort in feeling that God has been with us each step of the way. I am overwhelmingly hopeful that in His grace, I will get through this – one step at a time. That is what is making the difference for me now.
Medically, I am on the best edge on the continuum of an otherwise bad situation. If anyone is to survive this, it is me.
And having come this far, I am ready for the next necessary step. Getting this cancer out of me is the best thing that I can do right now. I am blessed to have the opportunity to do something substantial about it. Monday's (Dec. 1st) surgery is the beginning of my road to recovery.
Up until now, it has been all about finding out what was wrong with me and alleviating some of the symptoms. I am glad and relieved to be moving into the true healing stage. This is where I start to get better – to get back to my fantastic and now better life.
Thank you God and all of the angels that you have sent us.
I am sure that Jacquelyn will update this blog towards the end of the day tomorrow.
