Interestingly enough, cyber space must have eaten my story because it has disappeared! I will recreate the short version: Three separate primary cancers in less than five years. Kidney cancer, thyroid cancer, kidney cancer again, high grade myxoid histeosarcoma over 18 cm long and just as deep (wrapped around my femoral artery, femoral vein, and quadricep), kidney cryoablation twice, radical nephrectomy, and acute renal failure. Radiation that left severe burns and a hole in my leg that took a year to heal. Metastasis to the lungs. IL-2 treatments (which I affectionately refer to as flu in a bag). Chemo since May 5th, 2008 (28 days on, 14 days off). So many biopsies I lost count, numerous surgical procedures, scores of scans and related tests. Medical costs: astronomical. God's presence every second, every minute, every hour, every day of this journey. God's love and protection, a constant. God's Truth as my compass, giving direction, hope and promise. God's wisdom, discernment, guidance for me and for my doctors. God's gifts of the spirit on an ongoing basis. All this and more: priceless.
