Scary, ugly words, right?
That’s the news my husband received yesterday from his urologist.
And then he sent us home with a book of 100 Questions & Answers written in “plain English”, said his doctor, to read and to decide which treatment methods would be best for my husband.

The book was still pretty technical, even for me and I have a healthcare background.
The good news is that prostate cancer is a slow growing cancer and so there is no urgency for us to make a quick decision.
So, we’ll read and think and pray and consider the pros and cons to the treatments and side effects.
With any health crisis I am comforted by the scripture Psalm 139: 13-16:
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
God is not surprised by this development.
We have a family vacation coming right up and today, my husband wants to think about that and not cancer treatment.
And so that’s what we will do.
