My hero is my husband. He had a liver transplant and never let it keep him from going to church and enjoying life. Now he has colon cancer and he has to wear a "pouch" for the rest of his life. Yet, he doesn't let that stop him from doing what he wants to do.
Next month the doctors at Mayo will remove his whole colon. Due to the liver transplant, he isn't a candidate for the second surgery in which the doctors would put the "pouch" inside him (which would replace the "pouch" at his side). Even so, he is very calm and assures me that he will be alright. He always assures me when I should be the one who assures him! He is a real blessing to me. We have been married for 44 years and I hope we grow old together! I know, without a doubt, that all this would make some people doubt God's awesome power or cause them to get real depressed...but not David! He has the faith to believe in miracles!
