My family and I live in Minneapolis Minnesota. This is a blog about my fight with Cancer. I hope to share about my experience with treatment, my life with my beautiful family, and this crazy adventure called life. Oh, and we love doughnuts!

Week Four Out The Door

It's funny to say, but this was a fairly mundane week. It was my second week working part time, and my radiation treatment and chemotherapy has become quite routine. Kim and the kids are back in their groove and with two weeks left of treatment I will be getting back to work full time. Pending any possible side effect, which seem unlikely.

So far with my treatment the only side effect has been tiredness. On Thursday I woke up from a good night's rest super tired, like crazy tired. Other than that I have been taking the treatment pretty well. Which I must add I am truly grateful for, i know some others that haven't been so fortunate.

On Saturday I helped lead a night of worship & prayer at church. We took an hour and a half or so to sing to God and to pray and encourage each other. Kim and I got a good dose of prayer from a great crew of friends. Heck my parents came from IL for the night, and old church friends drove from Detroit Lakes, MN to be there. That was rad.

Ok, so I know that not all of you that are reading this blog are Christians, that to some of you the past paragraph is weird. And yeah, it is, I would be kinda crazy to not agree with that statement. We as Christians sing and pray to a God that we haven't seen. We have seen and experienced his goodness in tangible ways, but still its called faith which means there is room for doubt and fear. It is funny, but we religious folk often forget that we are participating in religion. That we are choosing to participate in a religious belief based on some experience and faith. That we could very well be wrong, but yet we still believe. We are a bunch of weirdos.

I don’t know if it is laziness or what, but I kinda want to end it there. Yeah, it was a good “back to reality,” type of week and I will gladly take it. A nice mundane week that ended with a bang. Yeah, that how I am going to end this post.

An Assignment - Be vulnerable with someone. Ask for forgiveness, forgive someone (usually in your heart and mind), hell go get counseling. Can I just take a second to speak to the power of good counseling, to have someone not connected to your world and circle of friends that you can just vent to and get some good advice from. It’s awesome. So yeah, be vulnerable with someone.
