We got the results of the full body scans yesterday and they were not good. There is a large mass growing in Jimmie’s right kidney that the doctor identified as renal cancer. There are also additional spots in his lungs that they will biopsy next week to see if cancer has spread from his kidneys. The doctor said that after he gets the biopsy results he can begin to plan a treatment regiment, so we won’t know anything more until then.
The news yesterday was certainly a shock, but Jimmie’s attitude is great. Actually, he may have startled the doctor a bit because the first words out of Jimmie’s mouth were, “Can you get me well enough to go back to Africa?”
Prayers will be greatly appreciated.
