I'm so terribly sorry to hear this, Perry. I just came back to TW so I was hoping to hear good news about you, but alas.. I'm glad you seem to have made peace with it, though, and I sincerely hope that you're able to spend your time with your family. I really admire your strength and positivity in dealing with this terrible disease.

Just recieved very bad news. Yesterday's MRI reveals the cancer is back in my pelvic/ lower abdomen area and growing past. Dr Kramer didn't give a timetable but says it's just a matter of weeks......maybe 3-4 months a most.

Both she (Dr Kramer) and Dr Read recommend hospice care for me as soon as possible to prevent suffering. I continue to praise God for my life and every precious blessing he's given to me, most of all for giving his own begotten son Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary so that I have eternal life in heaven if I only confess my sins, accept him into my heart, and believe.

Yes I am dying but am still going to live my life to the fullest as long as the Lord allows me to be here. Thank you for your love, kind words, prayers, and friendship. I love each of you very, very much.......only hope you know how much I love and appreciate you as my friend

God Bless You.

Many thanks Wes! My younger sister in Oregon is trying to arrange it so I can be transported from Atlanta to a hospice in Portland, so I can spend my final days and die surrounded by my family and not alone here in Atlanta (Becky and her family is the only close family I have left). Praying the Lord makes a way for it to happen :)

Thank you for your testimony and courage. I will be praying with you about the move. I hope it can be worked out soon. I am mostly a lurker but I have enjoyed your posts throughout my years on Talk Weather. You will be missed but I will see you in heaven at some point. Blessing on you, my friend.

Perry,
I hate to hear news like this! Cancer has taken so many of my friends and family! I am impressed and encouraged by your unwavering love for our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I have added you and your family to my daily prayer list.

Perry, you and I talked extensively several weeks ago in Atlanta. You know I am amazed by your resiliency, courage, and faith. Now, if we could just get you over to Oregon! My prayers for you will continue. I've stuck out so far on any of the funding ideas we discussed, but I will certainly try to double-down and see what can happen ASAP. God bless you, brother!

Noticed we don't have a general discussion for this month as so far it's all been in the severe threads.

WWA out for the TN border counties tonight for a good April snow. North GA mountains might actually see some flurries. With any luck I'll squeek out an inch or two here at the house.
Best of luck! I'm heading to Wilsonville, Oregon (hospice) this weekend to spend whatever is left of my life near my sister. Am hopeful I'm can see snowcapped Mount Hood.

Off topic but...

I'm glad that worked out for you, Perry, and that you were able to surround yourself family. I think I can speak on behalf of the entire TW family in saying we are still praying for you and thinking of you.

Prayers for Perry for the peace and mercies of Christ to rest with him and his family. May this time be a sweet communion with the Father for you and may you be comforted by the truth of the Gospel and the eternal blessing awaiting all of his people.
