He found out he has lung cancer in the lower lobe of the right lung. Here is an update his wife Marge sent me on Friday.
We met with the doctor this morning, based on what what he can see the cancer has not invaded the chest wall and the only "activity" (shows orange on the screen that we saw) appears to be in the mass in the lower lobe. There are two lymph nodes that are questionable. The doctor believes for what we can see this is a stage I cancer. If the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes it would be stage II.
On Tuesday Wayne is scheduled to have a brain MRI, if that is clear he will have surgery on Dec. 27th. The first procedure will be to get a piece of the lymph node send it to pathology to be sure that it has not spread, after that he would remove the lower lobe. With no complications Wayne should be out of the hospital in 4 - 5 days. Hallelujah!!
Wanted to ask you if you would pray that all goes well with the rest of the tests and that the cancer is only in the lower lobe. They both have amazing faith in God and said they will continue to praise him no matter what!
Marge told me that they are expecting God to do "a miracle that will be heard around the world" because of all the Christian bloggers who are praying!
When the family of believers gather together in prayer either via internet or in real life, God hears and answers our prayer. I am so honoured to know that there are many here who will pray for those who are sick or find themselves in a poor spot. I just want to thank you all for praying for these people that God has brought into my path. We sure do have an amazing family in Christ Jesus and I am so happy to be a part of it. :)
1 Kings 8:28-30
Yet give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, LORD my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day. May your eyes be open toward this temple night and day, this place of which you said, ‘My Name shall be there,’ so that you will hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place. Hear the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive.
