God never said we would understand everything along the way. He didn’t promise that there wouldn’t be any pain, suffering, disappointments. But He did promise that it would all work out for our good.
The last treatment is complete however the journey continues. The side effects will linger for another 45-60 days, but the victory party is near. The past two months have been very challenging but I have become a better man, husband, father, coach and friend because of this small obstacle.
I am so thrilled that my treatments are complete but sad that I will not see my (new) friends at Dr. McCord's office. They are always so light hearted, sweet, funny and simply put, "they take your mind off of you being sick." They are truly special people. Before leaving the office, Gail, presented me with an autographed basketball signed by the staff, along with my uniform (robe). And, of course, I couldn't hold it in - I CRIED! It was tears of love, joy and appreciation, as everyone there has treated me with respect and love. Words cannot express my love for them. Alex R (Head Coach at Oglethorpe University) has extended an invitation to Dr. McCord and his team to attend a game, so we can honor them for their undying, unwavering, positive effect they had on me and others in our community.
Elisa and I catered their lunch today, as a small token of our appreciation and love for them. Thank you Kea and Bruce (Grouchy's) for handling the food, and catering for us.
Well, since we are talking about food, what does one eat when their treatments are complete? A big steak?Juicy hamburger? Nope, Of course, a grilled cheese sandwich and french fries :)
Don't let anyone dictate your day.......you want to have a great day, then make it GREAT!
Love you for reading my blog

Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
