Dear friends, both old and new--I need your prayers please. My dear husband has been on a liver transplant list for some time now--he has cirrhosis from hepatitis that he got from a blood transfusion back in the 80's. They do annual MRI scans to make sure nothing is developing as far as cancer, etc and this time, they found a mass in his liver that they strongly suspect is cancer, as well as something in one lung that they are not sure what it is--they said it did not light up with the contrast dye like cancer usually does and may just be a nodule or something else (cyst, etc). They also said his blood work showed a normal alphafetoprotein level which is usually elevated in cancer of the liver, etc. However, the liver mass did light up with the contrast dye, indicating probable cancer.
They said it IS treatable and that there are several ways to treat it, all outpatient, and right now he will be having a CT scan of the lungs next week to see what is going on there and then on the 22nd the transplant team will be meeting with a specialized radiologist to decide what is what and what treatment plan to choose.
Please pray for this dear sweet man, and for my own sanity as well--I don't know how on earth I will bear it if I lose him. I love him so very very much. And we have a 13 year old son who adores him as well. I ask your prayers please, tonight.
God bless you.
