Hello friends.......Michael called me this morning and asked me to post an update from his latest doctor's appointment.  Cancer is ruthless in its journey through his body.  It is in both lungs, his esophagus, adrenal gland, liver and probably his stomach.  His doctor wanted to hospitalize him in order to hydrate him, but he wants to try to do that himself so he can be at home, one sip of water at a time.  I know you keep him in your thoughts and prayers as I do...it is so important for him to know the passion's friendship circle is there for him.  I wish this was better news.

We all wish it were better news.  Sounds as if the chemo he had hoped for may not even be offered.  Such a sad day.  Thank you, Martie.

Yes, Karilea...I forgot to mention that.  The chemo is not an option right now.

I really don't know what to say...this is indeed upsetting news Martie.

Michael, please know I am praying harder than ever for you now.
And, I never give up, so don't you!
I believe in miracles.

God Bless you dear Michael.
Check your email.

Hugs to you Martie.

First, please let me thank each of you in the most sincere I know how for your prayers, love and caring.

Yes, as for now, Chemo and Radiation have been put on the back burner until they get more test results in.  That will likely happen on Friday and Monday.  Cancer in my throat right now appears to be the most life threatening, however, I didn't know that until yesterday after speaking with the doctors.  For now, they're less concerned about cancer in my lungs, Adreanal Gland and stomach, liver, or wherever it may have spread, though they're very concerned about my brain.

I would like to be able to laugh again, my normal laugh, so that you could all recognize it, but a tumor is resting on the nerve in my right lung which may take my voice away forever when it's finally removed.  

I'm still trying to be brave, but fear is seeping in wherever it can find a foothold to survive.  When I find it there, I tell it to kiss my expletive, because I need to be strong now for my son and for each of you.  That strength, I feel, will help me survive this, though I'm not certain how much of my health will be left when this battle is won, if it can be won.  Still, I'm fighting back, know that.

I can't always promise you that I will have courage, as I'm sure you already know, but I will promise you that what courage I have and can tap into, I'll tap into as often as I am able to do so.  You've always been so good to me.  I want to be good for you as well.

God bless you all,
Michael

Michael,

I am not a praying man, but I would like to sendt to you my best wishes and hope that you can tap into the inner-strength inside of yourself to help pull you through a most unfortunate life threatening ordeal.

Maybe something (music) or someone (loved one) of which you have a passion for can help you recover.

Sincerely,

Mike

I can't begin to adequately express how deeply moved I am by your prayers and kindness.  You're all very wonderful, Passions finest!  It is at times like these that the real home, family, very heart of this place really shines its best.  You shine well, my friends, very well indeed.  

I'm feeling better today and the fear is being held at bay by sheer determination and an unwillingness to give up.  I can't say that I'll win this fight, but you can bet that the enemy (cancer) is going to get some real bumps and bruises before I'm done with it.

God bless you all and continue to shine as brightly as you've always done.  

Michael

Forgive my silence, sweetie.

The "C" word and all of it's ugliness is still difficult for me, so?

No words, but know you're in my prayers.
