For my Father
« on: June 07, 2009, 06:10:40 PM »
Just went to our family reunion/grandfathers 93rd birthday yesterday, and my father revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer two weeks ago.
He starts a new treatment in Loma Linda on the 15th. the way i understood it they use a small piece of iridium, and inject at the location, and leave it for a little while then remove it.
apparently it has very few side effects (unlike chemo) and only does damage on the isolated area. Please join me in praying for him.

Peace be with you.

Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Ever notice that just like there is no age limit on stupidity, there is no IQ limit either? kind of explains a lot huh?

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
