Health Update

Well, the doctor called within an hour of my CT scan this morning to say the cancer has spread to my liver. I’ll be switching to a new treatment in the next week or two.

Humanly speaking, the outlook isn’t very good. I cannot begin to put into words how deep is my peace, knowing that the death of the body is just step closer to full communion with my Lord.

I am eager to experience the fulfillment of the promise in I John 3:2 — “Beloved, we are God’s children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”I

I will be known and I will know. My Lord will say to me, “I see you; I know you; I love you.” The best is yet to come!

Thanks for your prayer and your concern. . .It matters a lot to me.

  1. Your openness and your attitude are an inspiration, Mike. Please know you’re in my thoughts.

      Thanks, Donna. I hope to see the Sonoma State campus one more time, even though I attended classes on the old, temporary campus.

      • Yes, it has certainly changed since you or I went to school there, but it is still a beautiful campus and a remarkable area … not to mention a lot of good memories of the place we honed our skills in how to think. If you get back there, Mike, I hope you write about it.
