As of Wed., April 3, both radiation and chemo treatments have been stopped as part of the treatment plan for Rod’s cancer. Over a year ago, we were told it was treatable but not curable. God in his infinite wisdom and grace has given us many blessings through that year but the cancer has continued to grow and spread due to its aggressive nature.
Rod is now on hospice and from a medical perspective looks like the cancer will take him home before long. Could God perform a miracle? Absolutely! Will he? Only he knows that. We continue to press on to serve him for any remaining time and strength he gives.
We covet and appreciate your prayers. The past few days have been stronger ones for Rod but his body is still showing signs of the cancer’s progress. He is not in pain for which we are praising God.
Our family is enjoying this time with Rod. We cry together, laugh together, and just cherish this time that God is giving us with a man who has led us, loved us, and encouraged us for many years. He exemplifies the one he’s served even through this time when life is drawing to a close.
God continues to be faithful and good even in times like these. Great is our God!
