detail. Cancer Update: Cancer Blood Marker Clear for Cancer post Liver Section. (detail...)

Email to the Georgetown Hosp Team, and Unity, this morning -

NOTE:  Please fwd to 1. Doc F and 2. Doc Hwang, AND the staff on my 3. Expert Recover Floor
            7 Bles; AND 4.  Staffs as appropriate. Thank you.  (No, it is not that I am important.
            What is important is what you all have done.)

Re:  James McGinley. Cancer Blood Marker Clear for Cancer post Liver Section.  (detail...) 
Yesterday my oncologist Doc He showed me that my blood marker for cancer (who knew?) has been 'no cancer indicated' since Doc Fishbein's section of my Liver October 18 (quite a Birthday present).

Thanks to the Godsend of my Guardian Angel Doc Cardile at Unity, and much luck. I was connected to the world-class team at Georgetown (GUH) after a grim chemo treatment prognosis was given to me at Howard (HUH) that just didn't make sense given what I was seeing at major   sites online that prominently spoke of liver section (section removal) for my condition. If there it is one Miracle in DC it is Doc Cardile and her team at the Unity Clinic here at the grim, grim, grim... CCNV Homeless Shelter / Infirmary - a Godsend for we destitute.  Loving.  Godly. Even this grim Infirmary, and understandably dour staff, has been a Godsend for me - leaving me the ability to at least work on my computer - I'd never, never, never... have made it, or completed the treatment plan, without it.  To be needlessly without my work for 8 months?  Could you do that? Me neither.

Oncologist Doc Hwang at GUH was exactly who I needed to have talk me through the process and prospects. Without him, I just don't think all this this success would have happened. He just laid it all out to me, so I could make an informed decision, before I even asked anything. Subsequently, all my Docs at GUH have done the same.  Godsend.

Doc Hwang was doubtful that the botched plannning and subsequent many month's delay at HUH hadn't cost me my life - cancer in the liver grows fast - but, another Miracle, it was still operable, it seemed, according to new scans.

Scans, and a post section liver biopsy showed that the 6 chemo treatments by my Revered Doc He shrunk the tumors, well, killed the outer portions.

Scans and biop showed that the liver embolism inserted by Doc Banovac and team over a 3 hour procedure, weeks pre-op, shrunk the cancerous half of my liver and expanded the healthy half by the time of operation, reducing any likelihood of organ failure.

Doc Fishbein, a world master at liver section, completed, and his team, in 5 hours what I presume others would have needed two or three times as long to complete, with much higher prospects of freedom from complications - and there have been none it seems.  100% success based on the biopsy - clear margins around the tumors removed.  Miracle.

8 days in recovery, half of what other facilities may have been able to achieve, thanks in part to the tireless, kind, hugely expert, dedicated nursing staff on my recovery floor (I had the corner suite???) 7 Bles at GUH.

Doc He is having me conclude the process with 4 chemo treatments to gun for any outlier cancer cells that may have escaped.  A minimal set of rounds, at my request, but we think it may suffice.  I'm on treatment #2 as we speak.  CT Scans will take place 4 per year dropping to 2 per year when deemed safe.

Post op, physically and mentally now I'm back to 95% of pre-op strength.  Odd physically, it was not a linear healing - one week I felt like an infirm 95 year old, and the next week, around week 7, I was back in my 60's.

I have two symptoms that disturb me quite a bit - involuntary muscle contractions in my right fore-arm, especially when I'm trying to sleep, and a totally nuked sleep pattern - I don't get a night's sleep, I get 4-15 naps.  I can't seem to stay in deep sleep.  For several years I've  needed massive sleep at night and naps - maybe 14 hours per day.  The cancer? Maybe I now only need a more normal 8 hours, or less.  I'm working to figure it out and Doc He has referred me to the GUH sleep experts as a next step, if needed.

And all this treatment given to a homeless bum.  No one could have received better treatment, anywhere, any time - world-class, expert, kind, respectful....  A true Miracle in this Godless, Loveless, country and world.

Had I not been in DC, had Doc Cardile not set me up with DC Medicaid, had she not gotten me to Doc Hwang, had Doc Fishbein not been at GUH....

I pray I will be in a position to live out my life in a way that makes all this care and expense worth it to present and future generations.  I am 100% determined to do so, with every breath.  Personally, I really detest this Godless, Loveless world, and would been happier to have not survived the operation. I'm tired.But I did, Creator's Will, so, I'll have my 2nd choice, the Joy of trying to do what I can to Help,to be a Loving force, for Creation, especially our Global Neediest.  My goal, to be Christlike, Loving,Godly, with every breath.  None of us can do more than that, the rest being up to the Creator.  Anything else we do, is less, and deadly.

Your Grateful, Admiring brother forever,

James Loving McGinley

***** 'Historic': 5000 US Scholars Stand with Palestinians in Boycott of Israel commondreams.org

"The overwhelming majority that voted in favor of the resolution illustrate that we refuse to lend complicity to Israel's aggression," said Steven Salaita, associate professor of English at Virginia Tech and a member of the ASA Activism Caucus. "This stance in solidarity with Palestinian freedom is historic and signals a new era of engagement with colonized populations."

"Loving, you are the most God-like person I've ever met," wrote a friend that has been Divinely Good to me for way over a decade now.  I don't hear from her much.  Thought I'd lost this friend's Faith.

My reply -

What can I say. Those words from you - I couldn't receive better encouragement,
at a very discouraged time.  My entire hope for the world is that we be Godly, Loving -
that this is the only, ONLY, revolutionary, Saving act - to be, to BE Loving, Godly.  God
IS Loving, right?

Up until a point, Jesus thought He could Save the world.  Then He realized, 'The Gate is
narrow and Few will enter in.'  How crushing that must have been for Him.

That's where I am.  He carried on.  I shall too.  But, it is hard.

And your words - Nothing could be more encouraging to me than what you've just
said.

You will always be His Angel sent to care for me, for us all.

As to my opt-out of the bible study - I'm just way too much to take for all but the
most Serious Traveler.  It is ALWAYS a mistake when I let folks come in casual contact
with me.  I am where they can seek me out (none do), and I keep working on my blog
where they can find out what I've been allowed to See.  Nothing else works.

Loving U forever, no matter what
