How Bad Can It Possibly Get???

Let me fast forward a bit because the months after June 7, 2009 were filled with the excitement of the life changing revelation that came from the message. My time was occupied planning for the launching of a new Bible school scheduled to start in the fall of 2010. The cancer in my body seemed to be stable and I was still, everyday, confessing and meditating God’s word toward my healing. It wasn’t until the late spring of 2010 that I started noticing that something was going on in my body and it wasn’t what I had expected from using my faith. I started swelling from my waist down and developed an ache in my back, between shoulder blades. In June, Melanie and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at Walt Disney World and it was less than magical. I had a hard time walking, having to take a rest at every bench I could get to. Looking back at the couple of pictures that our waiter took that evening at dinner, it was obvious that I wasn’t looking very good. The weeks following started seeing an increase of the pain in my upper back and the swelling had added about 30-45 pounds of weight to my body. I was having a hard time distinguishing between the cancer growing or the water retention increasing. I made a decision to find a chiropractor with a nutritional background and actually found one. I was hoping that he could help with the back pain that was becoming a little more unbearable everyday. I was a little disappointed that he didn’t want to address my back because he was concerned about my kidneys from a few tests he had given me. I thought he would just pop my back into alignment and we’d be great. I wasn’t quite sure where we were going with his protocal but I was committed to our once a week appointments. A couple of weeks later I was climbing the stairs at the house and caught my foot on one of the stairs. Remember, it’s not the fall that will hurt you but the sudden stop. I wasn’t ready for the outcome…
