Ed, I just caught up with the last 4 years on here. I'm sorry to hear your struggle continues and has gotten worse again.

My wife had a major health problem, not cancer, but it was found eventually to be related to her father's exposure to Agent Orange. The Navy claims he was never exposed to it, but as you have pointed out, it may have been far more pervasive than people think. Debbie's holistic doctor was finally able to pinpoint this, as well as a long-term retention of polio from her polio vaccine as a child, locked inside her spinal fluid. Debbie was in a wheelchair for over five years, increasingly losing her mobility. Finally she was spasmodically losing the use of her hands. All the docs told her they coudn't help her, and didn't even know what the problem was. Until she came to the holistic doctor, who found the problems instantly, and gave her the holistic medicine to treat them. In just eight days, she was totally cured and got rid of the wheelchair. That was last summer. She has been totally healed. I tell you all this to say there is hope, and not always in the places you expect to find it. The med docs can often times get it done, so I'm not knocking them. Just saying no one person fully understands the human body well enough to always be the one to get you fixed up.

Also, there's a massive God element here. Never underestimate His power.

Anyway, hang in there, I'm praying for you today since I saw this again. 

Jim

 @Okrafarmer, it was my dermatologist who came up with the question of agent orange. If you see tanker planes dumping water on fires out west it's easy to see how a plane could drip after coming back to land and dripping on the ground that I worked in. I trying to get into va medical to help pay some of the cost of treatments if that works I'm going to bring up the a o to see what they say :(.

Ed a lot of people have been rebuffed in the past when they bring up the AO at the VA, but there have been some changes there recently. I hope the shakeup in the organization might bring some better results.

Debbie's dad has still not been properly diagnosed at the VA or by any other medical doctor.

He and Debbie's mom are supposed to be flying here from France Friday (they're missionaries) if their flight hasn't been cancelled due to the new covid lockdown in that country. We hope to get him in to see Debbie's holistic doctor to see what can be done for him. 25 years of no answers is not fun. He's not had cancer, just a very debilitating neurological disorder that has caused him to slowly lose control of his motor functions. He is constantly in pain, and on a whole bunch of meds, etc.  They were able to eliminate some of his meds recently, which is good. At any given time, he almost always has two or three random muscles cramping. As one releases, another begins. He has preached the Gospel over there for 38 years. It's hard for him to leave the ministry, but they are trying to retire.

Anyway, I'll pray for you again this morning, and I hope the Lord provides a new breakthrough for you.

 Finally getting my breathing back but still get tired out by noon. It's unbelievable how quickly you can lose muscle and strength by not working/playing everyday.

 Bricklayer51, I hope they can figure out whats wrong and get you on the mend. I haven't felt hungry since the first heavy chemo drug they gave me in 2016. I don't know how you do it not being able to eat, I feel awful for you.

Ed, I see that you still seem to not be disconnected from us, at least not with all of your recent replies and posting. You ARE feeling OK if you have the strength to to do that. Maybe not top notch, but it’s better than becoming fertilizer! After all (selfish me), I like seeing you around!
