I sent an email to our friend Terry the other day and this is the reply I got from him...we really need to be praying for him as it seems he is much worse and very depressed..
will not make this a long E-mail but wanted to contact you and let you know that I may not be in contact anymore. The bone disease is worsening and my cancer is coming back - they don't have any more treatment left to offer me so I guess things will just run their course. I think that will be a couple of years at least but I must be honest, I am finding it a psychological battle as well. I will be moving in with my 36 year old foster son in the next couple of weeks and although I am still getting around I have lost interest in most things - maybe I'll get over it but just at the moment I have no interest in anything really - although I'm not dead yet I'm feeling very depressed by the news as you can imagine - I am seeing the pain clinic team and they have arranged for me to have some time with their clinical psychologist to help swallow the news that there is no more treatment for the cancer and they can't do anything more for the pain than more drugs (he is helping me get out of the self-pity thing that happened, at least now I can admit it caused me to go into self-pity and I didn't realise I had or, what that does to you). Besides the morphine I now have a drug that blocks the nerve pathways in the brain - it's a drug used for epilepsy.
I want you to know how much I have appreciated your friendship and support. Please pray that God will keep my spirits up mentally as that has taken a massive beating. Please take it easy as you recover and try not to rush things - your body knows how much it can do - please don't push yourself as they tell me that it is better to step forward a little bit every single day rather than forward a big step and then backwards the next day - constantly forward even if it's only an inch at a time.
It really depressed me to hear all this...I wanted to share it because he needs us right now and our prayers...I sent a reply but havent heard back from him..dont know if I will but I will be praying for him and I know you will..he was with us a short time but he seems to have made an impact in some way on all of us...he even mentioned Andrew in his email..he is still thinking of him..
