I went with Ron yesterday for his bladder scope. He has kidney cancer and will have his kidney removed probably next week. I think I was prepared for the news but it came as a big shock to Ron. The doctor said he has a 50/50 chance of it coming back in the next 5 years but I thought that was pretty typical for any cancer diagnosis. The good news is that they didn't see anything on the CT scan on the liver or lungs. He said they won't know for certain until they get in to take it out but hopefully it hasn't spread. The tumor is very large so they will do the surgery abdominally rather than from the back. So, we will just take it all one step at a time!
