Re: Calling all survivors
I found the belief Statement. IIRC, you have never claimed atheism and preferred Deism ala Spinoza, If I remember correctly. Have your battles and journies with loved ones and battling cancer caused you to re-examine your beliefs in any way? If so, it would be nic to share a bit. If not, it's ok... you are honest and true to your world view. And I'm proud to know you.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul

You can "get answers" by watching the ducks. That doesn't mean the answers are coming from them.~Ringo

Re: Calling all survivors
I'm glad it is going well for you RAZD. It has for me as well. My surgeon in Vancouver found a small return of the cancer in my sinuses last spring, which the MRI didn't pick up, and so I went back for a quick 20 minute surgery and had it removed which went well. He had thought he found another spot but it turned out to be benign.

It is all going really well. I don't seem to miss the bit of the brain they removed, (guess I wasn't using it anyway ), and I am dealing fine without any cartilage left in my sinuses except for the little bit at the tip of my nose.

They keep checking up on me and I see my oncologist again this afternoon and I see my surgeon over in Vancouver every 6 months or so.

I hope that you enjoy your trip through Canada. I drove back out to Alberta during the summer through Jasper and it is sure a beautiful part of the world. My home town is Medicine Hat and as beautiful as it is here in Victoria I still feel more at home in big sky country in southern Alberta than anywhere else in the world.


He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.

Re: Calling all survivors
... It has for me as well. ...

Wonderful news.

I hope that you enjoy your trip through Canada. I drove back out to Alberta during the summer through Jasper and it is sure a beautiful part of the world. My home town is Medicine Hat and as beautiful as it is here in Victoria ...

We lived in Cadboro Bay for a (too) few years and loved the area and all the available hiking trails.

... I still feel more at home in big sky country ...

For me it has to be coastal, and rocky preferred to floodplain flats. It the salt smell in the air.

I'll wave (waft?) in your general direction when we stop in Vancouver.

Enjoy

I'll stand by for the breeze from your waft.
