Good morning Julia,
I dearly hope that my posting did not offend you or that you thought that I was trivializing such a terrible condition. Sometimes when we look at words on a screen, it is hard to know the feelings and passions that wrote them. I do take my condition very seriously, but, I also must find a way to deal with it. My way, at times is humor (not very good this time). Although I did just finish vacuuming. (my wife told me to and I said "yes ma'am".)
I guess my attempts at humor sometimes fall short, but, I will keep trying. It's my way of keeping my sanity. I have seen "C" take the lives of some very close people in my life. None of them was PCa. My father died from pancreatic. My grandmother, brain. My brother-in-law, lung. And my very best friend, liver. His name was Wayne. He handled his situation with faith and humor.
Anyway, my PCa has gone to the bone. My prognosis is not good. But through faith and love I will reach my final goal. I have two great passions in my life, beside God, my wife, and family. They are both singing. I sing with a '50's Do-Wap group. I sing Bass. But my real passion is singing on Friday nights at our Church for "Celebrate Recovery". We sing contemporary Christain Rock music. I don't sing bass because there is no bass part in this kind of music. I sing lead sometimes and background harmony the rest of the time. My mission is to spread God's word through music, acts, and deeds. I must let His light shine through me.
Now you know a little bit about me. I would like to know more about you and your husband. I will do all I can to help both of you in any way. You are both in my prayers.
Let me hear from you.
War Eagle to all.
