I just received this from my best friend Kathie...I asked her if I could share it with DGMS like before, she said (through her tears) that she would appreciate it...So, DGMS Blogmunity...could you spare some more prayers for my friend's son Carl?
I am not posting on facebook due to my grandchildren being on here and this is something we would rather tell them face to face.
Carl went for his pet scan results yesterday. The tumors are back in his throat and there are more of them and they are larger. The tumor in his kidney has grown and there are nodules in his lungs.
He is starting double doses of chemo on Monday to fight this aggressively but the doctors have already said that this round is going to affect him far more than the others because of how aggressive they have to treat it.
My heart is breaking for him but I know its all up to God and the doctors now. His adopted father died when his daughter was 6 weeks old and now he is terrified because his first grandson is 2 weeks old and history has a way of repeating itself in our family. I of course told him that was not going to happen to him because he is fighting much harder than his dad was able to. The lungs is what is scaring us the most.
Please add Carl Hughes to your prayers tonight. And again please do not openly post this on facebook where it will show on my page because his children do not know yet.
I will know more on Monday after his first treatment and how he does but may have to be dropping out on some events planned on the games because I will be taking care of him. I have already dropped all social networking except facebook and hope I can still check in here from time to time as I care for him.
Thank you all and God Bless.
Thanks Linda :O), Chicky
Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers, as I know the rest of the blogmunity will do as well. ~Linda
