Poole (4 Jan 2012)
I have been a long time reader of the Dove’s site and have only posted a couple of times. I developed renal cancer several years ago (about 7) and have had several surgeries to remove growths for my kidney and lung. I was on a drug called Sutent for the last year but my last scan determined that it is no longer keeping things stable and the tumors have grown. They are still manageable and I am starting on a new course of treatment next week. I have always said that everything is in God’s hands and he doesn’t keep us on this earth a second more or a second less than we are supposed to. Ultimately all healing comes from God, whether it is in the form of a miracle or through the gifts that he gives the doctors, nurses, scientists and technicians that develop treatments. The best medicine is prayer and I am asking that for me and my family. If interested, you can also check out my CaringBridge site at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/markpoole.
