It is quite possible, I have written on this topic before, but one of the privileges, if not responsibilities of retirement is being able to repeat oneself.
Today, I spent most of the morning at the U of M Medical Center doing a 3 month cancer check with an “All Clear” report! This is the 7th time I have received this report and something I definitely am happy to hear repeated.
Even though I don’t believe I was overly concerned going into the check-up, shortly after texting the good news to my family I found myself with tears streaming down my face and overwhelming sense of God’s presence and protective hand on me. I know that family was praying for this report as I did in the early morning hours, but I did not expect to be so touched in this way.
I probably should not be surprised as these “touch’s” seem to be more frequent the past few months. Maybe they were there all along and I never stopped long enough to experience them.
Did I mention that I got an All Clear report today? The doctor was more giddy than usual as he told me that I am getting very close to the point where the time between my cancer checks can be extended because the probability of reoccurrence will fall materially!
