Cancer 2

Note: Page down for the original post.  I realize that with a journey like this that people want different degrees of updates: none, acquaintance level, friend level, family level, and mom/wife level. So instead of multiple blog posts, I’ll just put some observations and updates here and anyone interested can check at their convenience. Be blessed, and thanks for all the encouragement and prayers!

OBSERVATIONS AND UPDATES

5/.29/20 – One thing I’ve been trying to thank people about for their prayers is that they are already getting answered. Yes, we obviously want complete and permanent remission, but it’ll be a long time until we know if and how that was answered! But we’ve had a lot of very specific prayers answered already: very clear decisions, rapid progress in getting tests and treatment started, great caregiving teams and more. I want people to know that the prayers are working and deeply appreciated.  And let us know how we can pray for you. It isn’t  a one way street!

5/28/20 – It is humbling when you think about the millions of things that had to take place to end up with the medical personnel having and knowing how to use all these different machines, chemicals and preventatives and so many other things to make all this work. The amount of trial and error and suffering had to be staggering, and here I sit getting to benefit from it. Feeling blessed. Was there a profit motive for some of it or most of it? Sure, and I’m OK with that. Yea for capitalism! But I never forget that these people could be doing a lot of different jobs. Oncology must be extra demanding because of the technology and how you can often lose patients despite your best efforts.

5/27/20 – I have found that my habit to respond to “How are you” with “I’m blessed” is a good conversation starter / “faith flag.” I don’t say it in a dramatic way, just matter of factly and sincerely. As I like to say, it has the added value of being true. But when saying it in settings like the oncology floor people do notice and appreciate it. It usually brings a smile and an “amen” from Christians. It works in regular settings, too. And it is an easy segue to explain how in the midst of things like this that I really am blessed beyond measure.

5/26/20 — I had my first spinal tap, so I can take that off my bucket list . . . right after I put it on. One nurse said, “Some people get very anxious about them.” I wanted to say – but fortunately didn’t – that maybe if she didn’t cringe the whole time she talked about them that it might help. She’s actually a wonderful nurse, just not a poker face :-). But it was way better than I expected. Just a couple numbing shots and a little pressure. Nothing to fear.  They must have come a long way with those, because I know they used to be much more painful.  And yes, the Dr. had seen and enjoyed This is Spinal Tap.  He noted the “this goes up to 11” line and I said my second favorite was, “There is a fine line between stupid and clever.”

5/25/20 – I just heard from a dear friend who has suffered mightily for years but has served the Lord wholeheartedly during that time. He just found out that he has leukemia and only has 2 to 3 months to live, but he’s still sharing the gospel and led to people to Jesus last week. A lot of people would like to have my problems.


ORIGINAL POST

It is always a good day to be a Christian. In good times or bad, his salvation, peace, truth and more are priceless.

That is even more true on the day when your oncologist tells you that not only has your cancer returned much more quickly than expected but that it transformed to a very aggressive form.  I’m really hoping that this sequel is the last in the franchise.

Random thoughts . . .

As before, by his grace alone we are at complete spiritual peace with this.  We are task-completers and are always eager to know the next steps and to get on with the program, but with respect to matters of eternity things are as solid as could be.  Praise God for that, because it is absolutely not my nature. It is purely a supernatural thing provided by his grace.

We pray that it leads to many opportunities to glorify his name and share his truths with others.  We’ve already had several significant opportunities.  Our outlook is pretty much the same as with the first cancer plot twist.


We are extremely grateful for the health care available to us, especially in light of the Covid-19 restrictions and pent-up demand for services.  I went from initial scan to treatment in three weeks.  I’m really glad we don’t have socialized medicine.


This will be a big burden on Mrs. Eternity Matters, the best of wives and best of women.  This treatment is much more severe – 6 cycles, 21 days each. The first 5 days of the cycle are 5 different chemotherapies, then a spinal tap of a different chemo in between each cycle.  Oh, and another Covid-19 test each time.  If all that puts it into remission – and it should – then I may do a high intensity chemo series where they take my stem cells out and then put them back in and re-do my childhood vaccinations.  That would increase the odds of eradicating it.

So we both have to be super-isolated as much as possible, and for quite a while.  Covid-19 makes it worse.  I think my body can fight Covid-19 or cancer, but not both.

But it is good that as aggressive as this type is, it is also well known with a distinct – albeit challenging – treatment plan.  One of my goals in life is not to have a disease named after me, so I’m glad to keep that streak going.


The outpouring from friends and family has been amazing once again.  We are blessed beyond measure.  Such a blessing to be close to the girls and their husbands and their families.

The work situation is great.  I already worked from home, and now much of the rest of the company has joined me in that.  My supervisor and my team are phenomenal.  I obviously won’t be going anywhere this year, so I have plenty of vacation days to cover anything.  What are you doing for vacation this year?  Trying to stay alive :-).


I got a comment from someone I really like and respect, but who said something that wouldn’t have occurred to me:  He said it is OK to be angry at God.  Believe me, I’m the chief of sinners (with apologies to Paul in 1 Timothy 1:15), but I can honestly say it never occurred to me to be angry at God.  He has blessed me mightily for so long that it is laughable to me to question him now.  It isn’t like He did it all to set me up and pull up the drawbridge on me.  Live or die, I’m his.  Him forgiving my sins was more than I would have dared ask for and all I really needed, but He has done so much more.

Like I’ve said, the end of the book of Job is in the Bible for a reason, in that we don’t get all the answers to everything in this life and God is fine with that.  But the rest of the Bible is there for a reason as well, so that we can learn everything God does want us to know, such as how Jesus is the only way to salvation.

I often think of what Pastor Kevin DeYoung said about how Christians should think: Jesus loves me and He knows what He is doing.  In tough times we can rest in that simple, timeless truth.


It was a blessing to have already been in a great relationship with God when this came up.  I was already in the habit of My favorite Bible reading / prayer / memorization routine, so it wasn’t like I had to say, “Oh no!  Cancer has returned! Better get back to God!”  I wouldn’t fault anyone who turns to the real Jesus for any reason at any time, but it was so nice to already be there.


Everything is already shut down for a while, but even as things open it will probably be a year before I can go to church or do prison ministry.  Our favorite hobby, ballroom dancing, is out – except for dancing in the dining room when we move the table.  So no more of this for a bit . . . but our goal is to get healthy again and be able to compete in late 2021, God willing.

I found that it helps to have things to aim at when working your way back into shape.  Last time I’d lift a lot between cycles.  The first few days were really tough, having to give myself pep talks for every brief set.  The warm up sets felt like heavy sets, just like they do these days.  But it gets better quickly and really helps long-term.  Dancing helped as well as it was a great for energy and a nice mental diversion.


I’ll probably blog quite a bit less but hope to still follow all of you.  Dialing back on the news cycles probably won’t hurt, either.


The odds of survival seem good, but it was a good catalyst to update my screen capture videos and other documentation of all of our financial, insurance, etc. matters in case I die.  You really do your loved ones a great service if you line things out for them.  Things are miserable enough when someone dies without having to go through lots of extra high stress searching and paperwork.  My Dad was very organized and things like being able to export information from his password software to mine saved countless hours when I was setting things up for my Mom.  If you don’t have a will, get one right away.


The chemos I had last time didn’t cause me to lose my hair, but this batch definitely comes with a free haircut. A wonderful follically-challenged friend/relative already sent some lightweight headwear and we have some bandanas ready to go. I think the world will get by just fine for a while without my chronic bed head. And the doctor already prescribed three anti-nausea options, so I think she is hinting at something there.  And there are a “few” others meds to take . . . the doctor basically said, “Go to Walgreens and get one of everything.”


Prayers for healing are appreciated, of course, and I covet prayers for the peace and comfort of Mrs. Eternity Matters, and also for my 85 yr. old Mom.  She’s a very committed believer but this really worries her.

But please also pray for endless opportunities to glorify God and share Jesus through this.  Having something like this always focuses me like a laser on the things of God.  I’m comfortable with any discussion about Jesus and his word once it gets started, but I’m terrible at starting conversations.  But this disease gives unique opportunities to share with non-believers and to encourage believers.  No one seems to mind if the cancer patient brings up Jesus, so I shamelessly exploit that :-).  Seriously, I use my usual Stand to Reason tactics in conversations, but the talks do open up much more quickly and easily.


We got Daisy just before my last chemo treatments (she was a rescue dog, 6 years old at the time).  She was a great chemo napping buddy, and now she’s back in business.  (OK, she never really stopped.)

2020-05-17 17.59.24-3


We will all die someday.  I pray that anyone who reads this makes sure he is right with Jesus.   We are all sinners in need of a Savior, and He is the only Savior.  His terms are indescribably generous, but you must come to him based on them and not your own made-up terms.  The latter will land you in Hell for eternity.

I praise and thank God for his salvation and his assurance.  I am enjoying his word as much as ever.

Be blessed.


Psalm 16:11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Romans 12:12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

1 John 5:12–13 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.

Jude 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

Double dose of Leftist insanity:

  1. California closes beaches even though outdoors and sunshine are very non-conducive to virus transmission and social distancing is easy even on “crowded” beaches.
  2. New York subways are extremely crowded, poorly ventilated and filthy – in other words, the worst-case scenario for virus transmission–  but New York must keep them open, despite being a center of the pandemic.  It took them a long time just to close them at night for cleaning.  What incompetence!  It isn’t a secret that NYC has a wildly disproportionate infection rate.  It is obviously Trump’s fault.  And racism.

Huntington Beach protesters assail California Gov.

New York Times calls for DNC investigation into Biden sexual assault claims – Uh, didn’t this paragon of journalism do an investigation already and publish a scripted “nothing to see here, folks” response?  And even that was sanitized by the Biden team.

Side note: The bigger issue here is the media and Democrat hypocrisy with this compared to Kavanaugh.  But note that Biden doesn’t call her a liar.  Wouldn’t you if you were falsely accused?

Bill Gates Defends Communist Chinese Government; Says It ‘Did A Lot Of Things Right’ While US Acted ‘Poorly’ — Sickening.  Yeah, China just never stops lying, disappears whistleblowers, profiteered from the pandemic, etc., and Bill definitely isn’t just trying to prop up the WHO to save his reputation . . .


The video normal people have been waiting for: Thanks, celebrities — I hope that one of the good byproducts of the pandemic is that people scale back the worship of celebrities and athletes.

A lot of celebrities seem to imagine (see what I did there) that we want them to shoehorn themselves into this crisis to offer advice or entertainment. But when people are dealing with the loss of jobs, a death in the family, etc. it comes off looking really out of touch. There’s a combination of navel gazing and not-so-subtle humble-bragging about their fabulous wealth and fabulous friends in many of these clips which ought to embarrass them. But somehow it doesn’t.

Overall, you get the sense that for a lot of these people the most important thing is that we not forget about them. No, it’s worse than that. They not only want to be remembered, they want to be important and applauded no matter what else is going on in the world. It’s pretty repulsive.


Good for him, using actual facts and logic.  Paying people who haven’t lost jobs was stupid (as was making it more profitable to be unemployed than to be employed).  The virus is less lethal than thought.  There is no reason to shut down the country and hand out our grandchildren’s money.


Too Many Women Today Want a Marriage Where The Man Makes Commitments While They Promise Nothing — Yep. Things have changed.  I can see why men are much more skeptical about marriage.

But women today reject the idea that they should be bound by any of the traditional promises for women. She expects him to do half the housework. The idea that she should give him sex if she doesn’t feel like it is considered equivalent to rape. She can’t be expected to support his career: she has her own. And of course, if she decides that the relationship no longer meets her needs, she can leave at any time for any reason or no reason. And he is then obligated to pay alimony and child support.

Marriage today is still a huge commitment for a man. Almost as much as it ever was. But it is pretty much zero commitment for a woman. She promises nothing.


CNN finally covers Larry King clip in which Biden accuser’s mother purportedly alludes to daughter’s sexual assault — There are countless reasons that CNN is nothing but shameless Leftist hackery, but this is a hall-of-fame reason: 700 stories about Kavanaugh within the first few weeks of the story breaking and 1 on Reade.  And even many Leftists concede that Reade’s case is far superior to Ford’s.

Lesson learned: Trump said that women would let you touch them if you are rich and famous.  Clinton and Biden showed that if you are a Democrat you can touch them against their will.

More here: CNN slammed for treatment of Biden sexual assault allegations after old Larry King clip surfaces — Such hypocrisy and duplicitous behavior from the Democrat-owned media.

The resurfaced CNN clip from 1993 appeared to show Reade’s mother alluding to “problems” her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator. Reade later told Fox News it was indeed the voice of her mother on the clip. Biden’s presidential campaign has adamantly denied Reade’s allegations but the video could be cited as evidence supporting Reade’s allegation – even though her late mother, in the clip, does not specifically refer to a sexual assault claim.

CNN did not immediately respond to a series of questions, including whether the network knew the footage existed.

“Larry King may have had the biggest scoop of his CNN career this evening … And it’s an open question whether his former employer will say a word about it,” New York Post reporter Jon Levine tweeted.

And from another article on the topic, fancy this:

The National Organization for Women (NOW) also did not respond to comments from Fox News. The offices of Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former 2020 hopefuls who have been floated as possible VP picks for Biden, did not respond to requests for comment about the latest development.

Other names floated as possible running mates also did not immediately respond to requests for comment, including: Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H.; Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.; New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham; Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.; Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.; Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz.; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Normally it isn’t safe getting between those ghouls and a microphone, but now they are silent?  What hypocrites!

And then there are the shrill, hypocritical harpies from The View‘The View’ ignores Tara Reade’s Biden allegations after championing Kavanaugh accusers.  They went off 24×7 in the most ridiculous ways on the spurious Kavanaugh claims, but are silent on Reade.  Same for Pelosi, Shumer, et al.  Go figure.

And note that Biden’s denial immediately segues to the pro-woman legislation he has advanced and pretends he doesn’t have a well-documented track record of inappropriate touching.  They know they can’t say, “He’s never done anything like that before!”, so they switch the category.


Whitmer: I don’t know how we awarded that contract to my campaign vendor who just went dark — Sure, sweetheart.

On Tuesday the Whitmer administration terminated a door-to-door pandemic tracing contract awarded to Great Lakes Community Engagement, an organization led by Kolehouse, just one day after its announcement. Within 24 hours of the cancellation, Kolehouse, who was set to take in nearly $200,000 in the deal, took down the website for his consulting firm, K2K strategies, as well as his Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn accounts. He did not return multiple requests for comment from the Washington Free Beacon and declined to answer questions about the contract, which would have tasked him with collecting sensitive health data, from the Washington Post and Crain’s Detroit.

John Ekdahl has been on a helluva tear on Twitter. He wonders why it is that the New York-based media is scolding Floridians for visiting the beaches in small numbers, but yet all of New York City’s parks remain open. He wonders why people are being told they can’t drive but New York City’s subway system remains open, each car a contained petri dish. (And note — they only gave out the order to wear a mask on the subway a few days ago!)And I’ll point this one out: The same people saying that protests are non-essential are the same people who said it would violate the Constitution to quarantine people from the New York City area to the New York City area. Andrew Cuomo, hero of the fascist lockdown lobby, threatened to provoke a Constitutional crisis if Trump sought to limit New Yorkers’ holy right to export the plague to other states. Why is it the Ruling Class is busy demanding lockdowns for others while accepting no restrictions at all for themselves?

Democrats are ‘grappling’ with Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden (many in silence) — It doesn’t sound like grappling to me.  Sounds like they have decided to ignore the obvious because of politics.  If they really thought she wasn’t credible they would just say so.  By their silence they are admitting that they think he’s guilty.  I think they’ll ultimately have to replace Biden, but this incident shows how the media and the DNC are complete frauds.

This is how messed up these people are.  She’s an “advocate” ignoring that the new President would be a predator so she can help the predator fight sexual violence.

“For me, this is extremely painful,” said an advocate who had worked with Biden’s office on sexual violence issues during the Obama administration. She asked to remain anonymous because she worries that expressing support for further investigation into Reade’s claims could jeopardize her chance of working with the White House if Biden wins. “I really saw Biden as a champion for a really long time,” she said. “I’m experiencing cognitive dissonance right now. I haven’t had the ability or the time to process emotionally what it means for me to believe that he did this.”…

I find Reade infinitely more believable than Kavanaugh’s accuser.  But the media and Democrats just put reporting on hold for a couple weeks while they could figure out how to bury this.

Imagine if, instead of spending millions of the rapidly-depleting state budget on a ‘COVID-19 racial disparity task force’, as kooky Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer announced this week, she frankly told the public it all comes down to personal lifestyle choices — eat well and exercise and you’ll probably survive the next one.

Virus-Panicked Liberal Gun Buyers Are Getting Angry When They Discover Their Own Gun Control Laws — Great story, and not just for the irony. This could be one of those profound long-term impacts that will come from this pandemic: A fairly significant amount of people rethinking their views on guns – and perhaps more!  Hopefully lots of people are re-thinking their stereotypes about guns, gun owners and gun laws.  This should be a great campaign issue for Republicans.

More than a dozen of these buyers (men and women) actually thought that since they filled out and signed everything, they could just walk out and go home with the firearm. Several actually said they saw how easy it was to buy a gun on TV and why did they have to fill out all these forms. The majority of these first timers lost their minds when we went through the Ammo Law requirements. Most used language not normally heard, even in a gun range. We pointed out that since no one working here voted for these laws, then maybe they might know someone who did. And, maybe they should go back and talk to those people and tell them to re-think their position on firearms – we were trying to be nice.

We tried to look at just who the new firearm purchasers were and we believe that more than 60% of these individuals were first time buyers. I can’t describe the amount of fear in my staff as we had the buyers show proof of safe handling as part of the purchase process as required by law. You have never seen so many barrels pointed at sales staff and other customers. It was truly frightening. We had to keep stopping the process to give quick safety lessons. We are adding many more basic classes in the coming weeks and encouraged these buyers to please attend. We hope they do.

But here’s the best part: If the schools argue that online classes provide the same experience, then why go to the campuses at all and waste all that money?  Just learn from home!  Then you can avoid all their politically correct nonsense and rules and just learn.
