Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…
I can’t remember the date but we’re back in the surgeon’s office.
Yep, it’s bowel cancer. It’s about 45cm’s up my bowel and is about 2cm’s in size, wrapped around 75% of the colon. So judging by the size and usual growth times of these sort of things it’s been there for about 18 months. This explains why it has been hard to get bowel movements happening of late. It has also spread to the liver, but we knew that.
I am referred to an Oncologist and we go home. Strangely enough, feeling alright.
4 “Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;”
I now know what it means to walk through the valley of the shadow of death. But the thing about a shadow is that it is vaporised by light.
1 John 1:5 says:
“This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.”
As I emailed a friend….
For some reason my faith is surging when I am normally quite melancholy. I sense a battle ahead but I also sense a victory. I’m frightened of the medical processes ahead. My body is going to go through hell, not to mention my mind…. but I have hope. Real hope. I’m going to make it out the other side of this and there will be tales of miracles. It’s time for me to stand up and be counted.
What poor research my enemy has undertaken! His recon team should be hung, drawn and quartered! What terrible destruction I will bring to his doorstep. What violence will I unleash against him.
Don’t you know who I am? Don’t you know what you’ve just awoken? Don’t you know who fights for me?
You will regret the day you picked a fight with me, homes. You can count on it.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
