Out of my cage!

Today marks another special day in this online diary of events. I have officially completed my radiation today. I met Dr. Subhashini in her out patient chamber and she looked over my x rays and decided that one extra dose of radiation would be enough (i.e Today). Went down for my last nuke with a grin on my mug! It’s great to have another chapter of this saga completed.


I have a picture of the cage I was in for the radiation, one of the technicians were nice enough to hold it for me while I took a picture of it on my PRIMUS radiation machine. I was basically strapped into this plastic cage and the lines on its surface were a guide to where I was positioned in the radiation field. From tomorrow, I have no more cages to face. Even of the mind - I think it’s easy to worry now. Questions like “Am I through it all? or will my PET scan 3 months down the line show tumour again?; there are so many doubts that can crop up, and I don’t deny that they exist. But they are not caging me in, I’m sure I’ll be given the strength to deal with it when and where the situation exists.


What’s next? Well, I guess I just sit and wait – a check CT scan in a month and a PET scan after 3 months to see if the crab is around or not!


Tomorrow I need to get up early and go as an assistant for the final year Surgery residents, as they give their practical exams. I need some rest, but I needed to blog the good news first, before I crash out!

Proverbs 3:1
MY SON.......
Proverbs 3:5-6.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. And do not lean on your own understanding(in your reasonings and knowledge-you already debated enough and more)
In all your ways acknowledge Him.
AND HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATH STRAIGHT.

Science and medicine gives us the probability by which a cancer can be cured after Chemo & Radiation. But...God talks not about probability but about what is possible with God.."With God all things are possible"

Lean on to Him, Trust in Him, Give your life over to Him totally and entirely. HE Will DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.MAY YOUR HEART FIND REST, PEACE, LOVE AND ASSURANCE IN GOD.

wHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS.
ALL OUR SINS AND GRIEFS TO BEAR.
WHAT A PREVILEGE TO CARRY EVERY THING TO GOD IN PRAYER.
O WHAT PEACE WE OFTEN FORFEIT.
O WHAT NEEDLESS PAIN WE BEAR.
ALL BECAUSE WE DO NOT CARRY.
EVERYTHING TO GOD IN PRAYER.
