Another Joy of Life

17 October 2008
Here is another update in the life of Sean. It is not as fun as the last one. Actually, it is not fun at all. As many of you know, when there comes something challenging in my life, I call it a joy of life. Well, this is one of the biggest joys of life I have ever had. This new joy of life came from my doctor today. I went in and had all of my test results told to me. Everything was pretty much as I expected it. I am sick and all of my symptoms matched the results from the test. There was a little bit more this time though. The doctor saved this little bit of news for the end. It was definitely the most serious and traumatizing. In my CT Scan, the radiologist found cysts in my liver. He told it to me straight and I will tell you the same. I might have liver cancer. The results are not yet conclusive. I have to go in for more tests next week so I can get a yea or a nay. I do not want all of you to freak out and worry for me. There is still a chance that I might not have it. I just wanted to let all of you know.

Sometimes I wonder if I am cursed to have tons of problems in my life.

I am so sorry to hear the news. You will be in my prayers. You are amazingly strong for all the challenges you face.

Sean--you're in our thoughts and prayers. And part of this life is about passing through sorrow -- it is through the sorrow and trials that we can tell good from evil, and can grow spiritually.

Sorry man, that really sucks. Good luck to you. Hopefully it won't turn out to be cancer, but if it does, I suppose it'll be another "joy of life." You've got a good attitude - if you can't change it, don't let it ruin your life. Although, I'll bet that sometimes, that attitude is a little too hard to sustain? Just remember that you've got quite a few of us that are here to support you.

It makes us all put our lives into another perspective. Even if it isn't .... it is a reminder to us how precious a life is and how important the Savior is in that circle of friends. I am saying a prayer just in case. Stay real my friend.

): Things will work out for the best, even if it doesn't seem that way all the time. I just wish things worked out a little bit easier for you - give you some reprieve. You know we love you, and we need to just hang out some time.
