I am sorry it has been so long since I came on here. Things have been hectic and I surely hate to think I still have cancer. My wife lost her job in the middle of my treatment and she carried the insurance. Financially things are tight, I had to take out a cobra plan for 700 a month just for me. GOD has been there for me and i will beat this cancer...
Since I last came on here I have done my treatment, somewhere I think in my soul I would hear that I didnt have cancer anymore. that has not seem to happen. Every where I turn around I see someone with cancer. There is a young man I know Trent Fontenot, he is only 16 and is fighting for his life at St Jude. I recently heard the news was not well. My wife asked me if I was ok, and did this scare me? I said no I wish it was me, I have lived my life he is ONLY16. I cried for him.
I have noticed the last few weeks I have not been feeling well. I am very tired all the time and still keep going. I have been throwing up again alot and bone tired. I have some of the same symptoms I had when I first got sick. I have went back to ER since my last visit. They know me on a first name bases there. I dont see my oncologist til next month.
please continue to pray for me and help anyone who has cancer. Don't for a minute " stop listening to the music"
My wife asked me today " please don't leave me" I said I am not in control of this my GOD is...he has a plan...she said not for you to leave me.....GOD will get us threw this..
Kiss someone you love!!
Almost to the end

Well I am sorry I have written in a while. Life seems to spiral somestimes out of control. I go to the oncologist ever day. Nothing more than that.
My urine is getting real painful, there is no sign of infection , but my urethea tube is closing. WONDERFUL. I have to see my urologist tomorrow, there is talk of a bag. I will fight this till there is nothing left to fight.
I have great faumily support, my father in law moved in with us. He has been a great help. One of his brothers, Dud has been coming over and helping any way he can. Where do you go without family.
11 days and COUNTING!!

Well I am sorry that it has taken me this long to come and tell you how much of a sucess this was. The people who came out and offered support and tears was more than I could handle.
One lady came got her two poboys, I went to thank her and I wanted to make sure I told as many as I could thank you. She left went around the block and came back and handed me everything in her purse. My wife and I both broke down and cried.
I had so many people there wearing my blue shirt. It was just amazing to see all of the people around cooking, laughing, dancing. It was hot but was so amazing.
My radiation has increased and I am half way thru my treatment. I have 4 to 5 weeks left. Sunday was especially hard with all the side effects from radiation taking effect on me, the fatigue is the hardest. I am so bone tired, than sometimes I dont think I can walk. Then I have the rash and the burns....BUT I keep going and moving forward for my family.
Lord could I go back and listen to the music again....I want to rewind my life.
My future is to help and promote awareness. I will proudly walking in the Games of Acadiana as a Cancer Survivor.
