Change of Direction

Hi friends. A few weeks ago, I had a Pet/CT scan to see if I was still cancer free. A lymph node near my trachea lit up as possibly being malignant. After having it scoped, it was confirmed that it’s a flare up of the esophageal cancer I had a couple of years ago. At this point, it’s limited to the one lymph node, but I will need to have chemo again to treat it. So, there are two good news items:

1. It’s very limited in size

2. It’s treatable.

The bad news is chemo is not a fun experience. I’ll be in treatment for about 4 months. I’d appreciate your prayers for healing. I do believe I’m still here telling you about this because God has answered a lot of healing prayers, along with the brilliant and compassionate work of the team at UCSF. I’m going to be using my music blog as a place to tell the story of the journey we’ve been through in the past four years. I’ll break it up into smaller posts and share some insights Linda and I have had along the way.

  1. Hey Dave! Lin and Den here…on our way to WA and found your album (Greater Things) in the car! Cry out Loud had the tears flowing. You are an amazing instrument of the Holy Spirit. We went to your blog and would love to be added to your list.
    Hearts and prayers are with you, dear friend.

    • Hi guys, I’m really sorry, but i’m seeing this for the first time, over two years after you wrote it. i sadly haven’t been paying much attention to the website for awhile. Thank you so much for your kind words. Cry Out Loud is one of my songs I love the most. It seems like I’ve lived it out even more since I wrote it. Thank you again, for everything. Love, Dave
