Rectal - Go ahead, you can say it; Giving God a Joke
Posted Sep 07 2008 8:17pm
Today I was thrilled to learn from several that it was very helpful to them that I was not hesitant to say out loud that I am being visited by Rectal Cancer.
Our society feels appropriate saying LUNG cancer, BREAST cancer, KIDNEY cancer, but no one wants to admit that they actually have a rectum! Well, we all do. You can say it out loud. It's OK. Because of this, I will continue to say it out loud until people get used to it. People have to be able to talk about this ... even in polite company.
A twist of life: Someone I know in the Indian community, JJ Kent, lost his wife early this morning in a car accident. I don't know what Kat's exact age was, but I guess it to be somewhere in her mid-40s. She was a gifted photographer.
She and JJ were driving back from an Indian ceremony in South Dakota called "Sundance," which they attend every year. Kat fell asleep behind the wheel and I'm told the car started rolling and she was killed instantly.
Woody Allen is well known for a saying of his, or at least it used to be well known when I was growing up. He said, "If you want to give God a laugh, tell Him your plans."
While all my friends have been focusing on me and the visiting Rectal Cancer, Kat was off happily doing her thing and was tragically and instantly killed. No one saw that coming. There was no forewarning.
We never know what life will bring, and this was a reminder of that. Something to ponder.
Live each moment fully.
On another note, several have asked me to post the information I've received for supplements and also the hypnosis CD I am using. This is such a gift to me because it shows this blog is doing what I wanted it to do - help others as well as help me.
I will be posting this information over the next few days. It will not be intended as medical advice, just a sharing of information. You must do the research yourself and consult your own doctors, as that's just smart and practical, but I am happy to share what I have been told. I've taken some of it in and left the rest. Feel free to do the same.
Many thanks to complete strangers who have reached out to me and offered a helping hand lately. So many are praying for me and it has truly lifted me up. I feel a deep love for humanity these days ... another gift. People do care and people do reach out. It's beautiful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I'm not sure what's ahead for me, though I know at times it will be rough, or maybe not, but I do know I will survive, as I have gone to a Higher Authority, and I have deep faith.
Live each moment. Be in the now. This moment is the only sure thing. Make it a good one.
