Me and Poindexter

As you may have noticed, I have added a picture of St. Peregrine, the patron saint of cancer patients, to the side of this blog, along with a link to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. I added these things because on Dec. 7, 2007, my life was instantly changed. It is amazing how a little word, cancer, can in less than a nanosecond make the whole world different, never to be the same again. Multiple Myeloma is an incurable, but treatable, form of cancer. I have been diagnosed with this disease. I DO NOT say this in any attempt to garner sympathy (ugh!), however I am grateful for any and all prayer. It is my hope to speak to the spiritual dimension of my journey, to share my journey through this challenge, to continue to speak and to learn. I decided that I must lean on our good and glorious God, and fight for all I am worth. Hence the name of this post, Me and Poindexter. No offence to anyone actually named Poindexter, but I had to name this cancer to give it a face, to make it something I could grasp. So the battle is on, and I am looking for where God wants me to go in this struggle. I will occassionally post this progress here, but plan to establish a new blog, Me and Poindexter, to track where I am being led in this new challenge. Where I am going I do not know, but perhaps in prayer we can travel there together.

My 35 year old brother was also diagnosed with multiple myeloma in October. We live in Indianapolis. Do you live in Louisville? If so, just in case God lead me to your website, my brother has been searching out where to go for treatment. One doctor he checked with is a Dr. Abinour (spelling is all wrong but it does start with an A). He is a multiple myeloma specialist at IU Hospital in Indianapolis. He said he gets many patients from Louisville and Cincinnati. He is the only local specialist we have found and I am hoping my brother goes there for treatment as he has much more experience with multiple myeloma than any of the others. My brother will be having a stem cell transplant around the beginning of March. Prayers are always appreciated.
