Cancer and a Funeral

Yesterday I shared in the funeral of Fr Walter Anthony, 80 year old Paulist priest, which was celebrated at our church here in NY. A fine celebration for a very caring and faithful priest. Then I dispatched myself to Sloan Kettering for my usual monthly checkup and some treatments. As has happened before, my blood counts were down a bit and I reported some fatigue. And so my oncologist is now giving me a drug, Aranesp, which is more concentrated form of the more famous, Procrit. I am hopeful that my first injection will now start making me feel more alive. Prayer is always a great gift.
