In Need of KT Prayers

My husband Jim had lung cancer two years ago. They removed part of his lung. Due to other problems the Dr. said that he would not advise Chemo or radiation. He has been monitored every two months. His CEA numbers,tumor markers,have climbed really high. They were over 300 two months ago and are now 524.He was supposed to have a Pet Scan in January but they have moved it to next week. The doctor has said that he is pretty sure that the Cancer is back,but they have not found it yet. He also said that he has seen patients live for 10 years with numbers like this.I am really frightened right now. If they have found it will they recommend the chemo now.

I am going through some heavy health problems right now.It has been a rough year. But I am more anxious about Jim. Please keep him in your prayers. I have seen the Prayer Warriors do some great thngs.

Sandie, I know what a worry this is! I'll certainly keep Jim and you in my prayers and hope like heck that the Pet Scan shows that the doctors are wrong.

I'm so sorry to hear your news. Of course, you're anxious about this. I pray that your anxiety decreases, and that your health problems lessen greatly. And most of all for your husband, Jim. That they find where the problem lies and can take care of it without further problems for him.

May you feel His presence,

Shirley

I know you're worried more about Jim,
but *take care of yourself*.

If you make yourself sick, you can't take care of him.

Like they say on airplanes,
"put the oxygen mask over your own face before you attempt to help another".

holding both of you in my thoughts & in my heart.

So sorry to hear this unhappy news. Is there a cancer support group near you? The hospital social work department might have some resources for you.

You and your DH may have a better idea of what decisions are ahead after the PET. (At least that's an easy test. I think I fell asleep on that one!)

RE: In Need of KT Prayers

Thank you for the kind words and prayers. We did go to the Mayo Clinic when he had the fist Cancer. I think we will wait until after the PET Scan and see what they find. Then may look for second opinions. We go to the Space Coast Cancer Center and have been pleased with the Doctors and the Staff. I am supposed to go to Shands,in Gainesville because I have a very bad curvature in the spine. They tell me that me because of my lung problem there is no way they can do surgery on my spine. The orthopedic doctor says it is my lungs,the lung doctors say that it is my spine. The lung doctor that says it is my spine,ordered oxygen for me. I just really wants some answers for Jim and myself.I have a very deep faith,that is why I ask for prayers.I know that I am supposed to give it to Him and not worry.After what I have gone through for the past few years,and now to hear that Jim very probably has Cancer again,it is very hard to shut off my mind. I do have friends and familly here,but I consider all of you my family too. So, I just ask for the prayers to keep going up.
