Remember me in your prayers


Recommended Posts

I'm going to need your help folks.

 

This past spring I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I had surgery in July to remove a massive tumor. The procedure went well and I was to have a second surgery in 3 months to clean up anything that may be left. That was today and my doctor had to remove 2 new tumors. I was supposed to start treatments in January but looks like that's off now.

 

I'll see the doctor next Monday and know more then but looks like I'm looking at removal of my bladder.

 

With your prayers and GOD'S will I'll get through this.

Good luck to you Randy. I wish you well with everything to come.

 

We never truly know how strong we are until being strong is our only option.

Keep praying people. It's working.

 

I felt pretty good today, considering what I've felt all week, so I built my new forge. I've been wanting a jabod for some time now and I must say, this is the way to go if you're using charcoal. This thing gets hot fast. I hooked it up to my shop vac but realized real quick I didn't need that much air. I'll mount my buffalo tomorrow. Was late when I got finished and I didn't build a proper bed of coals but a piece of 1/4" round got to yellow heat in no time flat. I've got a 100mm bearing I want to cut up. Maybe tomorrow. :)

Well, here we are. I'm going into surgery tomorrow morning to have my bladder removed. It's going to be a bad one. Recovery is between 4 and 6 months. I'll be at UAB in Birmingham. One of the best hospitals and one of the best surgeons in the country. Still going to be bad. So if it's not too much trouble, say another prayer for me. I'm going to need it.

I'll be in touch when I can.

Best of luck in these tough times, Sir. I don't believe in any religion, so I'll just have a thought instead of a prayer.

Thanks everyone. It went well. I was under from 7am till about 5pm. Doc said it was textbook and almost boring. Last night was terrible. Nausea and vomiting was bad but the pain from midnight till about 6am was worse. Oxycodone nor morphine would help. I gritted my teeth for 6 hours. They gave me to toradol at 6 and I started feeling movement in my bowels. I guess it was pressure. Not had any pain meds since and slept most of the morning.

Keep praying. I have a long way to go.

Prayers to you and your family! My wife has terminal lung cancer. So when I say I understand, I pretty much do! Hang in there and I will say a prayer for you. If it wasn't for my faith, I would have gave up long ago. I know God has a purpose, sometimes it is hard to see!
