Talk about living life one heartbeat at a time.

I’ll keep hanging prayers in the air for my friend.

I am often critical of the medical profession, and they often deserve criticism. They're still "practicing", after all.

But stories like this one make me realize how far we have come. I have a childhood friend who has had cancer treated twice, the last time with some kind of new radiation treatment where he was given the material orally and it somehow bound itself to the cancer cells and destroyed them. He was literally so radioactive for a few days that he had to stay away from people. Yet he's still alive, healthy, and leading a very busy life.

Compared to times of the not that distant past when people died from infections that are routinely treated today, we've got a lot to give thanks for.

My next door neighbor's daughter is battling leukemia... tough on the kid and the family. Things are looking good for her too. Yep, the treatments have come a long way...
