The Ordeals of Life

Life is never certain, and though I have been blessed with generally good health, great friends, a loving wife, and caring family, life has thrown me a curve ball. I have cancer.

I had a colonoscopy a couple weeks ago. They didn’t like what they found. After several more appointments, examinations, and scans, the result is rectal cancer. Caught it early, and Julie and I now have a timeline for treatment. The outcome looks good, but it is going to be a long road to completion.

Julie and I have decided to try and chronicle this part of our lives. Partly to look back and see how far we have come in this many-year process, and partly so our friends and family can follow along.

I will be making a separate area of the blog just for this content. A link on the home page (cancer) will lead to this section, and I will post very few updates in the “life” category because of this.
