It's been a few weeks...

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!" - Christian D. Larson

As most of you know, I like the words of others much more than I like my own words. This struck me tonight as I was browsing a line of magnetic quotations that I am particularly fond of.

I just have a couple days left of my second round of chemo and this round hasn't been much fun. More nausea. More drugs. More yuck. The bills have also started arriving and that is no fun at all either. For those that don't know, I got hired at a new design firm the day after my diagnosis so getting insurance was no longer an option. So the total bills after one round of chemo is totaling over $40,000. All kinds of happy. So we'll see how that gets resolved. If anyone has any brilliant ideas, hit me up! I would love the wisdom. Anyway. Not much more to right tonight as it is a treatment night, influenced by meds, incredibly tired, and not really all with it.

I would love to hear more from all of you. Keep the posts coming.

God Bless you all!

Hello, Markus.
None of us knows what the Lord has in store for us. All we can do is pray to him for strength and guidence, and try not to become discourged or bitter.
Please continue to post when you can, and believe that even those of us who do not know you personally have you in our prayers.

Markus, I hope you are okay and getting the support you need.

What Cancer Cannot Do (author unknown)

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.
