Tough Times


Pretty much day in, day out I blog (besides all the other stuff one does, like go to work)

And I think I am pretty good at it.

My motivation in blogging is to defend Israel and my fellow Jews against the barrage of lies, slanders and demonization we face 24/7.

I see it as a fight worth undertaking.

Which is just as well, because it takes quite a bit of energy. Emotional energy.

But it is nothing compared to the main fight in my life.

You may recall my darling wife has been fighting cancer for at least the last year and a half.

After what looked like some initial successes, the Enemy has returned.

I received the news from my PET CT scan today. There’s a cancerous tumor in my lung and another cancerous tumor deep inside my liver. They are both small tumors that couldn’t be seen on a regular CT scan. I will need treatment.

What this means is that the cancer is more advanced. It’s stage 4. We need time to absorb and internalize this very shocking and bad news. I don’t have any other information right now so the one thing I would ask of people is to please not ask me or my family questions about treatment plans because we don’t know yet. I’m in the hands of the most caring and devoted doctors. We have time to make plans and hopefully come up with the best treatment options available in the world.

I won’t lie. This is a very difficult time for us.

Needless to say, you may see me around here less.

Please keep Erika bat Chava Ehta in your prayers.
