    One Year Later

    One year ago, this happened (sorry for the video quality). September 19, 2014 was my last day of chemotherapy. One year ago today I finished one of the toughest and most challenging journey’s in my life.

    Anemia – Part 2

    Last week I mentioned that when I had my blood work done things were a bit weird. Just to update everyone, late last week my doctor called me in regards to my second blood draw to let me know how it looked. He told me that my blood was still off, but (sometimes I love [&hellip...

    Enjoying Adversity

    “The only thing that will enable me to enjoy adversity is the acute sense of eagerness of allowing the life of the Son of God to evidence itself in me. No matter how difficult something may be, I must say, ‘Lord, I am delighted to obey You in this.’ Instantly, the Son of God will [&hellip...

    May 14, 15 • Blog, Cancer3 Comments

    It’s been awhile since I updated this blog. I haven’t even thought of it since January. It’s been a rough few months still adjusting to a baby in the house, finishing up an evangelistic series, and training for a triathlon. The blog fell by the wayside. But now, well, I have some news. I’m anemic. [&hellip...

    Wellness Exam

    The church I work for has a wellness incentive. If you exercise (and record it) at least three times a week for 30 minutes each time, fill out a wellness profile annually, and get a physical exam every three years (every year if over 40, I got awhile for that yet) then they will decrease [&hellip...

    Three Month Update

    Well, it hasn’t been three months since I last updated, but close. I’ve been busy (new baby, catching up with work, car troubles). But once everything starts to calm down (yeah right), I’ll be updating the blog more often. Or, maybe I’ll just schedule some time each week to work on blog posts to make [&hellip...

    It’s been about 8 weeks since my chemo finished, and about 4 since I got the news. But with my baby daughter being born, catching up on work, and getting life back together I have let the blog slide a little bit. So this will be a short post. – – – – – – [&hellip...

    Chemo is Done!

    It’s been just over one week since I finished chemo. I am so happy to be done with that part of this adventure. This is the famed bell of the Oncology place that I was able to ring three times, very loudly. It was an amazing experience as many of the nurses spent quite a [&hellip...

    Cancer – My Wife’s Perspective

    I just finished another day of chemo. Now there are only 2 days left! At the beginning of my chemo experience I asked my wife if she would be willing to put together a guest post, I wanted her perspective. So without further adieu, here is Julie’s perspective of our experience. ¬†– – – – [&hellip...
