In the Spring of 2018, my life and the life of my family was forever altered. I knew something was wrong but I didn't think it was serious. A trip to the ER was the beginning of what would become our new normal: cancer. More specifically - multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma is a pesky little cancer that has no cure and no remission. The best treatment available only suppresses the disease with the goal of slowing its progress.
Through this journey I have come to realize how strong my wife really is (although she doesn't see it.) My wife has been with me every step of the way and I would not be where I am now without her. Early on I would find myself crying at the pure misery I was going through plus the weight of a terminal diagnosis. I have so much I want to do. I need to be here for my wife and three boys and I want to be strong. I recently discovered that my wife was doing the same thing as she also bore the weight of my diagnosis.
This blog is my way to put my thoughts and feelings in writing.. It is also a way to show the power of God as we walk through this journey. Please note: I am not a writer and I am not a pastor. I am just a normal guy with a normal family on an unexpected and difficult journey trying to find and fulfill God's purpose in my life.
Early on in my treatment, when I was feeling awful and depressed, I heard God speak these words, "You are not done." That was it. No burning bush, no talking donkey, but it was enough. It changed the course of my recovery and my outlook. It showed me that God knew my situation and that he was with me. No matter what my current situation, I am not done. No matter what I am going through, I am not done.
