Every day I am amazed

As I take more martial arts classes, I never cease to be
amazed by two things on an almost daily basis:

1) How strong and resilient the human body is.
2) How delicate and fragile the human body is.

And it's a little bit crazy that they are able to co-exist.

Around Christmas of 2000, a friend of mine started
complaining of a mysterious pain. By March of 2001,
he was diagnosed with colon cancer and it had spread
to his liver. He has had several surgeries and 3
different chemo treatments and experimental drugs.

His doctors didn't think that he would live to see
Christmas of 2001, but he celebrated his 30th birthday
in February of this year.

Every day I am amazed at how strong the human body
is.

Today he found out that he has new growths in several
places on his body, and the doctor has said that he has
2-3 months to live. If he were to go onto a certain drug
that may or may not make him sick most of the time, he
could extend that to 6 months.

Every day I am amazed at how fragile the human body
is.

I love you, Kevin.
