Thank you for sharing. My first reaction, was to say, and definitely to mean, "sorry to hear what you're going through." So, I'll go ahead and say that, because I do feel it. I don't know what I would feel... if it was me going to the doc to get the news. I would probably be really numb about it.
Right as I was going to type about "sorry", the idea hit me in the head, of all the times I've personally experienced negative news and events, and also watched as others experienced serious problems ... that something really good ended up coming out of the deal.
So, most of all, I wish the best for you, and I'm thinking the best for you, and I'm hoping the best for you.
I'm a little "wordless" right now... that feeling of "Geez, this is serious. What could I possibly say?"
Being that age... myself, where I'm supposed to be watching out for the same kind of problem... I have done some reading on it and when the news comes on, it causes my ears to raise. I have read and heard promising stuff of hope about them being able to treat it.
Gee, buddy. I feel for you, right now. I may be one of the least when it comes to having clout with God, but you'll definitely be in my prayers and meditations.
The best to you,
