Judgment Day #3 - May 14, 2009

Judgment Day #3 has arrived, exactly 51 weeks plus one day since the surgery that was verified microscopically to have begun my cancer-free state. With bladder cancer, such a state must always be viewed as temporary - and very much so in the first year. The doctor will have the radiologist's report from the CT scan last Friday, and I will bring him the physical films - should he wish to see anything pointed out in the report. Add to that a cystoscopy, where he will also visually inspect my bladder to look for any new cancer growth. Last will be a urine cytology and FISH test, the results of which should be available in about a week.

Upside is 3-4 months free from medical interventions of any kind. Downside is something not to contemplate until necessary. Results to be posted here later today...

1 Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-

3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
--Psalm 103

Praying for you today. Vicki and Rohn
