Pa. Gun Deer Season my health has me down. UPDATED

Post by catclr » Thu Dec 05, 2019 11:57 am

Now I use my crossbow even in gun deer season. Now for this season I have a health issue that is keeping me out of the deer woods. I'm still waiting for my result s of my biopsy last friday. I need to have my grandson hunting with me, as I would not be able to get a deer out of the woods myself. So hope to get out this coming saturady for the opening of doe for the next week, along with buck.
All prayers are welcomed.

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for your prayers.
Update-----I got the call from the doctor who did the biopsy on the mass on right lung. It is cancer, and he is now setting up a pet scan and then meet with a cancer doctor. I never smoked. I forgot to ask what could have caused it, but will ask the cancer doctor.

Keep yourself in a good frame of mind . I am going through cancer not lung but a form that can not be killed this is the second fall and winter that I have been on cancer treatment chemo . As for what caused it anything can cause it with what is in the air we breath and some of the food we eat . Again Keep a good frame of mind and you will do fine ! I have had to use my crossbow in every hunting season for a few years now I really don't miss the gun .

Thanks everyone for all comments.

I'm looking at this bump with a good outcome. I just have to adjust to my outdoor quests for the time, and this is the part that has me down. Being this is the time of the year I look forward to hunting and trapping seasons, and will have to adjust or forgo them.

....with all the stories I hear about people just dying young and cases of the big C....it just makes me more and sure that that we have to live each day to the fullest and we don't know when the Lord will come a knocking...l.

....now if I can just learn to live it and not waiver from this! :cry:

I see you have the right attitude and you are willing to adjust which makes for 100 percent positive outcome . Just keep that attitude no matter what !
