UncleDoug Posted May 17, 2005 Share Posted May 17, 2005 Journal Excerpt: Monday, May 16 In some of my Journal entries I may have appeared flip when I talk about side-effects; wishing I had some, etc. . . . of course I donâ€™t. I am blessed that I havenâ€™t been given the early crosses to bear that many of you have had to endure. My third cycle of chemotherapy starts tomorrow at 8:40 am. The actual infusion of the chemicals seems to be the easiest to endure for me. Itâ€™s the waiting in between â€“ the wondering if it will work â€“ the prayers that work their way to an agnosticâ€™s lips, asking for the tumors to die and just go away, to let me please have my life back again. I am an agnostic. I have been my whole life. Actually, truth be told, I waffle between Atheist and agnostic. That is, I donâ€™t know â€“ but Iâ€™m absolutely certain that Iâ€™m right. Being an agnostic is easy â€“ I really donâ€™t know whether there is a God in His heaven, or not; but if there is, Iâ€™ll take all the help I can get. There is a story, true or not, about W. C. Fields on his deathbed being seen to read the Bible. â€œYouâ€™re an atheist, Bill, why all this interest in the Bible?â€ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
