CT Scan

We got the results of Ron's CT scan and it wasn't what we hoped. They didn't get all the cancer when they removed his kidney. That 2 cm "nodule" has grown to 4 cm. and it is in his liver. They will run liver tests next week and then I'm sure the surgery will be immediately following. No date yet. He was told that it could be simple or it could be disastrous. It is on the aortic artery and he could bleed to death on the table. This has been a lot to take in and I'm just numb with pain.

((((((Patti)))))),

I'm so sorry.

I'll keep your friend in my prayers. I know how special he is to you.

Hang on tight to your family and friends and BELIEVE in miracles. They *DO* happen. I hope Ron gets his miracle.

BIG HUGS (and blessings).

I am so sorry and I know you must be devastated. Trust in the doctors. My prayers for you both.

I was so sad to hear this and will keep you in my thoughts. My brother-in-law has been through kidney cancer twice, but right now he is doing well. There is hope.
