Not a very happy Thanksgiving around our house this year.

I have been diagnosed with stage 3 esophageal cancer. I have lost 25# since first of September and have very little energy and strength.

The good part according to the ultrasound is that the cancer has not spread to any other organs.
I was prepared for anything as all the tests were being conducted and had prepared myself for the diagnosis.
After all the pathology tests are run from the biopsies and are reviewed, a plan forward regarding treatment will be initiated.

Living remote as we do is not the best place to be when something like this crops up. It is a long drive for Drs. and treatment centers.

I have been thrown many times and I always got up and got back on and I am trying to hold that attitude with this monster.
Plus me and the Good Lord are on good terms.

Psalm 46:1-2a (Reflection 1)
1 God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble. 2 Therefore we will not be afraid


Sit on your horse on top of a ridge, look out across the country and tell me there is no God.

That's a bad one, but some people with chemotherapy and surgery do recover. I hope you make a full and complete recovery.

Sorry to hear that I hope you make a full recovery.

What were your symptoms that prompted you to have it checked out?

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

My dad had that cancer in his 60s. He earned his as a heavy drinker and smoker.

I hope you have a better Christmas than Thanksgiving. Is surgery in your near term future?

When did you expect a problem? What are symptoms we should be aware of?

Sorry to hear, my thoughts and prayers will be with you.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

God bless you and your family. My neighbor is recovering from the same cancer, he is cancer free but struggling with the energy/strength too.

You'll be in our prayers. Varmintshooter on here went through that. You might want to talk to him if you have any questions.

Being right with God is always in your best interest. Look what all the prayers for little River did! You are on my prayer list.
