Please forgive me for disappearing Hondo, and causing concern! I ended up sick with pneumonia and hospitalized. I am finally feeling better now and my head not so fuzzy.
I prayed really hard for Troy, and asked for guidance about what I could do. I had a strong impression to lay low, try to ease Mom's worry and have Faith. I went with that, and was relieved to do so! After several more days he suddenly became his old self again, being much less cranky and even back to looking after Mom's needs again. It was a dramatic change, and Mom and I still don't know what the catalyst was for sure - other than the Lord at work! He still seems to be quite emotionally sensitive, but as I told Mom, we have to be careful not to take it personally all the time. Certainly he has had far more than his share of
things to think about and process. I am aware it could happen again, doubt if I can stand down again if so. Hopefully I remember to pray again for guidance!
Medically, he is now being sent to another specialist to find out what is up with his kidneys and bladder. He has had blood in his urine for almost two years, as well as uretral strictures. Evidently now there is something abnormal showing in a scan on both kidney and bladder....
His original Nasopharyngeal tumor is still growing and he is under no treatment what so ever. Only pain meds and now antibiotics for urinary tract problems.
Hondo, you are a ever present force on this site and we all Love you for being here!
God Bless You!

I might add that during the course of all the upset, my poor mother has had a lump, that the Dr. says is cancer, on her collar bone grow to three times it's size in a very short time. Her Onc has started her in treatment again with a drug called Xeloda...

I have been so worried about you and have been praying everyday, I am glad to hear you are OK. I was not the best person to live with while going through treatment the first time and for some time afterwards. The affects of treatment are very hard on the body and it was only by Gods grace that I made it through. I too still spike sometimes, but I know it is not me, I am just glad that I can go and ask forgiveness and walk away knowing my Lord still loves me.

Troy may feel helpless knowing his cancer is still growing and there is nothing he can do about it, don’t let the doctors give up on him. There is a cancer place I know of that works with people that have been turn away and giving up as hopeless, I will send you the Name and contact by e-mail.

Wend you see your mother tell her that I and many more like me are praying for her, give he hope and help her faith to stay strong

Remember I am here and will always be here praying for you and your family.

Thank you, God protect and keep you in his care.

Jestawoman- we were worried about you- all of us were. Your best friend, Hondo, made sure we were aware of your silence. That brought with it great concern by many of us, and a little something extra in regards to this LITTLE thing called Prayer. Sorry to hear of your troubles, girl, but very glad you're back with us. I would hope you have found the inner peace the Lord provides for all of us. Myabe just close your eyes and listen to your own breath for awhile, and remember the best of times you have experienced in your life...And your opinion on the works of Hondo are shared by every one of us.

Truly.

Thanks SO much for caring. Today seems to have been a day of emotional roller coaster for me, crying at everything! Pisses me off at this disease so bad! Tomorrow is a new day though, and many of my thoughts are for people in Haiti, I can be very strong in light of their plight and my family's. I am blessed to know these sorrows, it means I have compassion. For that I am grateful. I Am That I Am!

It’s OK to be angry and it is OK to mad, I too get feeling that way when people I care for are hurting or suffering with pain or sickness. I feel so helpless to do anything about it except pray for them, none of understand the why question. Why so much suffering, why so much pain, why people in Haiti or any country must go through the terrible ordeal they are going through.

The other day lightning struck a house and court it on fire, it burned to the grown, the news people and insurance company all called it an act of God, I wonder why did they blame God. The Bible tells us in 1Peter:5:8: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

When I read about Jesus in the bible I read things like John:15:13: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Jesus called us his friends, his brothers and sisters He came to this earth to die a death that we deserve that He may give us his life that we don’t deserve, all because he loves each of us.

So it is OK to mad at satan for all the sorrow that he has caused in this world. In the end I know that my friend Jesus will have a place for me and all who put there faith in him in his kingdom where there will be no hunger, no hurting, no suffering, no pain or sickness.

God Bless you and I will continue to keep all of your family in pray
