    Brain tumor

    As some of you know, I have advanced prostate cancer. We discovered yesterday that I have a tumor about the size of an egg in my brain.

    after a second MRI today, we met with a neurosurgeon. The prognosis is good for complete removal. Surgery will be in a week or so after more tests and planning.

    we feel very comfortable with the surgeon and the overall situation.

    God is still on the throne and we place our trust in him.

    needless to say, we welcome your prayers for myself, my wife and our entire family.

    Will be praying. My neighbor is 80 and has pancreatic cancer right now; it doesn't look like he's got long.

    Ken I am so very sorry sir. Hang in there, don't give up. Do what the doctors say. And then remember that Laughter is the best medicine. Cut out the stress, its a killer.

    Spend a half hour to an hour a day laughing. Whatever turns you on, dive into it.


    You are in my prayers.

    Thank you all my brothers in Christ and the shooting hobby.

    i have spent the last few days basking in the love of my family and our heavenly fathers gifts.

    God is Good!

    I suspect that we will know more today regarding surgery and future treatments.

    if I do not return from this burden, I pray now that you carry on and know that you have been dear to me in my short time here.

    Amen

    Yes I can be long winded. Yes I follow rabbit trails. Yes I admit when I am wrong. Your mileage may vary.
