On September 20th, 2016 my wife had a real bad stomach pain. She went to the hospital to have her self-checked out. They found fluids in her abdomen and saw that her liver was too big. This was the start of our living nightmare.

After almost ten days in the hospital doctors could not figure out what was causing this disruption in my wife body. After what felt like a million tests done on her they told us they suspected Cancer to be the cause of it and that they wanted to do a biopsy of something they saw in her stomach lining.

Two weeks after the biopsy we got the results. With a sad and heavy heart we now know that she has stage 4 mesothelioma. This is an asbestos caused Cancer.

mes·o·the·li·o·ma

ˈmezəˌTHēlēˈōmə,ˌmē-/

noun: mesothelioma; plural noun: mesotheliomas

a cancer of mesothelial tissue, associated especially with exposure to asbestos.

That initial second they tell you that it is stage 4 cancer it feels like you just got hit with a baseball bat. I felt scared, weak, and lost in this world with just the thought of losing my wife. A million more thoughts ran through my mind and it became harder to focus on anything else being said. I kept thinking of our daughters. I knew I had to readjust myself.

After the initial reaction I started to focus more on how much harder this was on my wife. She had this look on her face as she felt guilty that she was putting us through this. As I hugged her and told her we are going to fight this and that this was not her fault she just apologized. My heart broke and I started to cry. She looked at me and told me to stop crying as she needs me to be the strong one and be the rock to keep our family strong.

We would like to take this time to thank all of our friends and family for the great support. All we ask for is prayers and good thoughts for us. Please people if you can donate money to charities like Stand Up For Cancer and the American Cancer Society. We are in the process of taking my wife to Memorial Sloan Kettering Center so if you can donate and help them help us we would appreciate it.

TO THE CREATOR


Featured Image -- 152

Open letter to The Creator. In this article I am going off the beaten path. I am a man of high faith. I do not believe in organized religion. The Bible states that no matter the amount of gold a man has this will not get him into the Kingdom of Heaven, so why should I have to give 10% of my earnings to the Catholic Church?  But I am a man of high faith. I do not mean any kind of disrespect to anyone who reads this and I am not trying to be funny, sarcastic, or immature. Just asking questions that I would ask The Creator if I ever got to meet her/him.

 Why did you allow for so much pain in this world? How did you allow to let some people  be extremely rich, and let some people to be extremely poor? If you are The Creator why do we have so many  different religions?  Why would a patient poor man have to die to received his  blessings and not receive them when he is alive? Like Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31)  If people pray day in and day out, to have a priest, pastor, maybe a rabbi tell them they are doing it wrong does this mean you did not hear them?

I am just asking questions that I think a lot of people have asked at one time or another. I pray day in and day out, I am not ashamed to say it and I sometimes wonder if my prayers are being heard. No I do not pray for myself as I pray for others. Maybe sometimes I throw in a prayer for maintaining my health, strength, energy, and wisdom for my daily life.

I do realize that a major problem in this world is greed and selfishness. Why do you allow people to trample each other over materialistic things? Why do you allow money to be such a big factor in peoples lives? Why must some children suffer more than others? I know it sounds like I am ranting and raving but the truth is I am asking question out loud. We all at one time or another ask these questions. I understand people do not like hearing the truth, but if you look around as humans we spend too much time worrying about things we have no control over.  People kill each other for stupid things. People lie and cheat to get ahead in life, or so they think.

I do wonder if my prayers are being heard? Am I praying the correct way? Will you tell me if I am praying incorrect or will you wait for me to get it correct? Why do people say when someone dies “God takes the good ones”? I consider myself a good person but I’m still here, Oh!!! Oh !! Maybe I am not that good. I really would like some answers as it gets harder and harder to maintain my faith in this world.

I have a reason for having my faith. I am an alcoholic. I have not had a drink in over 14 years and I feel The Creator gave me the strength and the courage to stop drinking. He has helped me accomplish things that I never thought or dreamed of doing. He helped me maintain my family even when I put them through a lot of pain because of my drinking.  I thank Him each day for all He has done. By the way this is the first time I have publicly talked about my alcoholism.
