My life journey has taken a sharp turn. I have cancer. Bill and I found out about 10 days ago and waited to tell everyone until we shared with our college students.
Tentatively, on November 26th I will begin six weeks of chemo and radiation. A tough treatment, but effective.
I’m sorry we couldn’t tell you in person, but it seems I’ve had doctor visits every day, a dozen vials of blood drawn, and so many medical tests I feel like research took a giant leap.
I have begun taking supplements that will help combat the disease and effects of the chemo/radiation including extra vitamins, nutrients, etc. I changed my diet, started eating my vegetables and doing all those good-for-you things I should have done years ago.
God is with me. I feel His sweet presence and know that He will help me through. I will never be alone. It is very sad to tell my loved ones the news, but I remain at peace and hope to pray, listen to Christian music, read the Bible, and be a witness through this.
Please pray for Mr. Bill. He has gone to about every doctor appointment with me and been right by my side. He is learning to be a caretaker and is worried about what to feed me! Maybe he needs some cooking lessons!
I also ask that you pray for me. Although we have changed plans, slowed down and put our Bible studies on hold, I need pray for strength and stamina. Mostly pray that everything I do and say will glorify Him.
Remember the verse, Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to His purpose.”
“All things” means everything is in God’s plan and done for His purpose. He is aware of even this difficult part of my life’s journey.
You are loved, Kathryn
