From the very beginning when Carole’s carcino sarcoma was diagnosed, Dr. Nell Suby of Kaiser Hospital was tender, loving, and detailed in her explanation of the operation plan. 

Carcinoma is pronounced (KAR-sih-noh-sar-KOH-muh). It is a  malignant tumor cancer of epithelial tissue, in skin and tissue lining, infecting  the internal organs, and sarcoma [cancer of connective tissue, such as bone, cartilage, etc.].

The treatment plan was crafted by Dr. Sidhu in Roseville Kaiser as our son, Michael, diligently entered information into the computer. 

Detailed information is of immense help, allowing us to follow the treatment along as well as allowing us to ask pertinent & penetrating questions. 

It is my understanding that  carcinosarcoma patients may live 12 to 18 months on average after diagnosis. With the professional help of Kaiser’s physicians, my sweet and loving wife has now been fighting the battle for 4 1/2 years. 

If you will allow me to speak for Carole, it is not joy unspeakable and full of glory at campmeeting when you are in excruciatingly unbearable pain while cancer is eating away at your guts.   

I would request that if it be God’s will take her to his home in glory where there will be no more pain, no suffering, no “why,” no confusion because of mind altering drugs, no blank stare while mouthing “help me.”

“‘He will wipe every tear from [her] eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:4‬ (niv)

Please join me in prayer for the presence of the loving God, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, El Shaddai the God who can, The Savior whose blood was shed for life eternal, to make his powerful presence known as he ushers my precious wife through the gates of Glory into that crystal river of life-eternal bliss,  worshipping at the feet of Jesus while angels sing songs so beautiful no ear has ever heard or mind conceived. 

“There’s a light in the window

The table’s spread in splendor

Someone’s standing by the open door

I can see a crystal river

I must be near forever

See, I’ve never been this homesick before

“I see the bright light shine

It’s just about hometime

I can see my Father standing at the door

This world has been a wilderness

I’m ready for deliverance

Lord, I’ve never been this homesick before”

(Dottie Rambo & Jesse Dixon)

“The holy hills of Heaven call me

To mansions bright across the sea

Where loved ones wait and crowns are given

The hills of home keep calling me

“I see loved ones over yonder

Tears are gone and hearts are free

And from the throne King Jesus beckons

Oh the hills of home are calling me

“This house of flesh is but a prison

Bars of bone are holding my soul

But the doors of clay are gonna burst wide open

When the angel sets my spirit free”

(Joyce Reba Rambo)
