For Jeff

I've put off posting this here, but Frank has reminded me that this was the reason he started this forum, so here goes...

Two weeks ago I took my husband into the emergency room because he was urinating blood. No pain, just bleeding. No history of bleeding, no injury...just out of the blue.

After numerous tests and scans, Jeff has been diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma. He has a very large tumor on his right kidney, and will be undergoing surgery on Tuesday morning to remove the kidney, tumor, and surrounding lymph nodes. The doctor is one of the best in the country, so we've been blessed with a skilled and knowledgable surgeon. He's confident that he can remove the tumor in one piece. There is still a lot of uncertainty as to whether the cancer has spread to other places, and that won't be known until he's in there.

For those of you that know us, you know that Jeff and I are one...not just married, but one...

Please pray for God to be with the doctors, and to guide them during surgery.

And please pray for Jeff...he's a wonderful man, and needs to feel God's arms around him at this time. He can feel the prayers of our family and friends that know, and with the prayers of many more, will continue to feel stronger.

Thanks...this is so hard to type...but you're right Frank...we have so many good Christians here on this board.

Blessed beyond measure!

My prayers are with both of you through this time. God will watch over Jeff and take him in his arms during this time.


Just when you think you aren't going to find any morels, something pushes you to climb that next hill. And once you get over that hill, guess what you find? That's right. NOTHING!

God bless you as you face this challenge. I have a close friend that had the same surgery about fifteen years ago. He is doing well.

You and Jeff have our continued prayers as you go through this. As you stated this forum is here for a reason...and there are a lot of "Prayer Warriors" here. This is my favorite place on the board. It has been our place to come to in time of need in the past.....and it will continue to be in the present and future.
