Letter from Bishop Alexander of Buenos Aires and South America on
His Health and Gratitude for Prayers
and Friends in Christ:
I thank you for your prayers for my health!
Now I feel
much better. On Monday, 26 January, I spoke with my oncologist at
Kaiser Hospital. He recommended a course of chemotherapy which would
completely remove all traces of cancer. The procedure, it is expected,
will give me a 74% chance of recovery and a normal lifestyle. My
treatment will consist of a 5-day period of chemotherapy every month,
followed by a 3-week hiatus. The duration of the treatment will
be 6 months in all. The doctor hopes that the side effects of the
chemotherapy will not be difficult, although they will be unpleasant.
that over the next six months I will not be able to travel great
distances and visit the parishes of my diocese.
I leave everything
in the hands of God and hope that He restores my health for the
benefit of the Church.
your prayers for me!
May the Lord
