thought for the day

James 2:14-17 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it".

Oncology visit August 2, 2013

A review of the CAT scan and blood work from the previous week has shown a further decrease in Roger's PSA (one cancer marker) to 2, yes, 2.  This is down from 3, three months ago.  The doctor came in and asked "How's the miracle man doing?"  Roger likes this new nickname.  (it does sound better than the million dollar man, I have no total for what insurance has paid toward the cancer bill, but it is over the million dollar mark.  Some day maybe there will be time for totals)  The CAT scan shows 2 spots on the lungs, but too small to biopsy, and they could just be from the onset of emphysema.   Roger continues to have muscle spasms in his hands and legs.  (no reasoning from the oncology end of symptoms)  and Roger still refrains from further doctor visits to check on coughing and emphysema.  So we are still here and kicking.  Best to all.
