In the fall of 2015, I was given the devastating news that I had cancer. But not just cancer, I had one of the worst forms – renal transitional cell carcinoma – a very aggressive cancer. Worse, I was Stage IV and may not live to see that Christmas. Untreated, I most certainly would not have.
Facing death naturally causes one to reflect on life. Not just yours, but life in general. You think about the impending death, and what it means not just to you, but to your family. And you start thinking about what happens after that event.
Mortal Musings is basically a stream-of-conscious narrative written real-time as I was dealing with impending death. I talk about my battles - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I discuss the impact of the disease, not only on myself, but my family and friends. I talk about how it affects us in so many ways, including financial, social, etc. I wonder about God and what faces me, if anything, after death. I review my life and its endless cycles of triumph and despair. I provide vivid descriptions of what I was going through -- what the cancer was doing, what I was feeling, and how I was being treated. You will learn how I battled the disease with humor, stubbornness, faith, and love of my wife, family and friends.
I face my mortality with the faith of knowing there is a plan. I reflect on how God has touched me so many times in my life, both good and bad… and his often dark sense of humor. I philosophize on the meaning of life, both mine and humanity at large.
You will laugh and cry as the book tugs at your emotions and challenges your beliefs. It will also renew, restore or replenish your faith and give you strength to face your own battles.
