If you are going through hell, keep going

This week was a roller coaster ride. Last Sunday, we received a call from our son. He was experiencing pain so we rushed him to the hospital. After some scans, they said that he had an infection and they referred him to the urologist. By Tuesday, the blood tests confirmed that it was a cancerous tumor and on Thursday, he was in surgery to remove the tumor. Thankfully, the prognosis is great because apparently the pain was caused by an injury that brought the tumor into notice. The doctors said that they usually see these tumors much further along and that he probably had it for a very short time. The injury was a blessing in disguise.

The urologist said something to our son on Wednesday’s pre-operation meeting that will stick with me for the rest of my life. The surgeon gave Dan the choice of surgery on next day or next Tuesday. Dan chose the next day.

The surgeon said “Dan, I think that the best choice. You know what Winston Churchill said, if you are going through hell, keep going.” Anything’s better than stopping in hell so you should just keep pushing forward.

Any time, you experience a challenge in the future - just keep going. Failure in life is giving up. As long as you persist towards your goals, you can never fail.

Well, our son is through the most difficult part. Today's, he's out of bed and playing Wii and we couldn't be happier. He has some challenges in the future still but the worst of it is over.

I am the sort of guy who passions to taste radical things. Presently I am manufacturing my personal pv panels. I am making it all alone without the aid of my staff. I am using the net as the only way to acheive that. I discovered a really brilliant website that explains how to build photovoltaic panels and so on. The place explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure bout how accurate the data given there iz. If some people over here who had experience with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the thread it will be great and I would really value it, cause I truly would love to try solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.
