a year ago….

……this broken guy was readmitted at the St. Luke’s Medical Center Cancer Institute for another round of treatment because his first attempt to have remission from Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) failed. his spirit was  tired but still, he was keeping a hold on his Savior’s hands, clinging to the one last hope that he had.

………the time when I’ve, finally, after hanging on for so long, decided to  slowly accept things as they are, opened my heart,  to one painful truth—that things of the past stay as things of the past even if you imagine and prayed hard that they revert back to the present and that some people leave our lives never to come back anymore.

……when someone came into my life and things were never the same. she made things light, she made things easy, the sound of her laughter, the joy in her eyes, the sound of my name in her mouth, everything was different. i had my reservations, though, not wanting to hurt her, not wanting to give more than what i should, and yet she understood and stayed with me making my journey bearable.

……so many tests, more blood letting, IV drips, bone marrow biopsy, spinal tap, medicines of different types,  sizes and colors, endless antibiotics—and then finally—at UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center—-my prayers were answered—-i got Remission!

…..i can’t believe its been a year….God has been so good to me. I’m still on remission and presently preparing for a needed transplant. i’ll spike a fever once in a while, i’ll feel some discomfort, i’ll feel some fatigue at times–but hey i’m breathing! i’m alive—-in God’s grace!

…….one more thing: that someone is now my rainbow! (one more reason to feel really happy with this journey!)

……i’m loving this life and i look forward to more years ahead! wuhuuuuuu!

GOD is indeed GOOD……..All the time!!!!
