Subject: BS: Kendall's bad news
From: jacqui.c
Date: 21 May 09 - 07:58 PM

We've just got back from the hospital where Kendall was due to have further treatment to his damage vocal cord.

When the surgeon was about to put more filler in the right vocal cord he noticed a lump on the left vocal cord. Further examination showed that there was a growth on the left vocal cord which seems to be a carcinoma in situ. A deep biopsy has been taken and we will, hopefully, get the diagnosis by the end of next week.

In all probabilty this will entail further laser surgery to excise this new cancer and then further reconstructive surgery to try and improve the voice quality, which will deteriorate as a result of this surgery.

Needless to say, we are both devastated by this latest news, as is Kendall's surgeon, who has become a friend.

Hell widdit. You know you are as loved as a feller can be and still be decent, so buck up and heal that one, too. You're bigger than it is.

It's obvious that all the good thoughts and prayers are worth zero.

I know you are angry and feel devastated, but think..if you had NOT had all of those good thoughts and prayers, you might not be here. There are always worse alternatives and always more than an "either/or"...third and fourth alternatives, etc.

The Kendall I know and love has a strong faith in the Great Spirit, as do I. You can make it through this, if you choose and with Jacqui there I think you'd better choose or else! (Hope that got a small grin out of ya, at least.

Enough...I give thanks for your complete healing and send lots of {{{{{HUGS}}}} and love to you both.

DAAAAMMMMMMN

Katlaughing makes a great point- if it weren't for the intangibles...

And we do know that at least some bodily functions are affected by thought. Biofeedback is in common use.

And since we know that much, we also know how much more we don't know.

But, as I said, DAAAAAMMMMMN

You're right, Kendall. The prayers and good thoughts and wishes don't change anything. You still have cancer, you still have to deal with the damage, and it still stinks, completely.

All the prayers and the good thoughts and the best wishes do is tell you that you don't have to go through any of this alone. They tell you that as much as we all love your singing and storytelling, that isn't why we love you. (In some cases, actually, it's the leather jacket, but I for one like you as a person.) They won't take away a single ounce of suffering, but they can let you know that the suffering isn't all there is, and there are those among us who will walk with you - Jacqui most of all, but she is not the only one.

It's bad news, yes, and I'd be thoroughly pissed if I were you - at life, at God, at the universe, at my body, at whatever and whomever I could find to be pissed at. You've earned the right.

But on the other side of despair and anger is love - and you are deeply loved by more people than you know.

You don't need to get there today, or even soon. It's all right. Our love and friendship will be wait for you.

Dan

Kendall, read the article Amos linked to. I've been listening to that series all week, and now I see the reason why--it was to chime in as one more voice to say you can get over this, just take one day at a time and don't waste time looking at what you had, look at what you have now and what you want to have in the future. That's all we can ask of you.

In the meantime, your friends at Mudcat and elsewhere are keeping you in their thoughts and prayers, and there isn't a damned thing you can do about it. Except get better.

Kendall and Jacqui,

I can and nothing to what has been said so far, other than to strongly second Dan's post. Prayers and good thoughts may not make a disease go away, but love does matter. You know that but that knowledge is just hidden from you right now by what I understand is in many ways devestating news, particularly in view of your expectation that you were going to take another step toward restoration of your voice.

I think you know just how much you are loved, both of you. And Kendall, you have Jacqui at your side now, unlike the first time cancer was discovered, to walk very, very closely beside you.

When you are ready, let this precious knowledge exist beside the anger and deep, deep disappointment.

I am grateful that the carcinoma appears to be in situ and fully contained. I love you for who you are, not for your voice.

Janie
