4 years cancer-free

I had a good 6-month oncology checkup a few weeks ago, now celebrating 4 years cancer-free! Dr. Bajaj congratulated me, although I hadn’t really given it much thought. The only abnormality remaining on my blood work was a touch of anemia, red blood cell count just below the normal level. That has gradually improved over the years, as expected.

The McLeod Cancer Center is now in their beautiful new facility, in front of and adjacent to the original McLeod Tower, connected to the parking garage by an elevated glass-walled walkway. (Look at the far left edge of the image.)

Doctors, labs, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and research center, all are now located in the same building. Very attractive and very convenient, considering the ailment they are designed to treat is quite inconvenient, to say the least.

I’m still spending a great deal of my time reading online news from around the world, doing Bible study, writing, corresponding with various other bloggers and prayer partners, and interceding. Always interceding. Whenever I have a doctor’s appointment, I spend some time glancing at all the other people and praying specifically for each other patient I see, then praying for the people I don’t see: doctors, staff, tradespeople, visitors, relatives of patients.

It’s amazing how fast time goes by in the waiting room when I do that. Actually, it’s a good practice any time waiting is involved.

    It’s nearly 5 years … yesterday I had my 6-month FU with Dr. Bajaj who said I was doing very well, that from his standpoint everything looked normal and healthy. He said I could just come back once a year and scheduled me for an appointment in December 2016. Before I left, I asked if I could pray for him and he said yes. So I took his hand, prayed a simple prayer for the Lord to bless his family, his practice, and he himself, to meet every need that he had in Jesus’ name. He had told me several years ago that he is not religious, although he was raised in a Hindu culture. He seemed sincerely grateful for the prayer – smiling, hugging me, patting my shoulder before I left his office, and saying Merry Christmas. I have grown bolder these days, now I don’t think twice about asking someone, May I pray for you? So far, 99.9% of people say Yes and seem really grateful. Thank you, Father, for many opportunities!

Christ is the "Big C" in my life!

That was told to me by a good friend recently, and it's so very true.

Jesus says in John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

I believe Jesus. I hope you do too.

I have one request of other believers reading this journal:

Agree with me that the invader will shrink, shrivel, die and disappear from my body, whatever method the Lord uses to accomplish that.

Thanks in advance.
