Bad News Today

Today the PET scan showed several suspect lymph nodes in my neck, chest, and abdomen. According to the doctor, these were “lit up more than they should be.”

Tomorrow the hematology physicians meet with me. The plan is to figure out which lymph node to biopsy for suspected lymphoma. Of course there are many types of lymphoma, and there is also the possibility that an infection caused the lymph nodes to light up.

So, as Jesus said (my paraphrase) “Don’t worry about tomorrow…” We’re trying not to get ahead of ourselves but wanted each of you to pray with knowledge of this development. We know God is with us on this journey where ever it leads.

  1. Chuck and Debbie, the sky always seems the darkest just before the storm … but then the storm passes and the beautiful “sonshine” takes its place!! We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers continuously and love you with all of our heart. May God be glorified as a result of these trials. Jim and Charlotte

  2. I’m sorry to hear this new development but glad to know there may be a definitive diagnosis so that treatment can begin. We can only be in this present day knowing that God is with us and will be there every day after. Hold firm in your faith. We are all praying for you. Thank you for your update.

  3. Chuck & Debbie – yes, the sky is darkest before the storm and then after the storm comes the sun! Just want you to know that we are still praying for you both – and we know that all things do work together! We love you both and you are continually in our thoughts and prayers.
    We will pray for a quick and accurate diagnosis and treatment to get you on the road to recovery. We love you both! Sherry and Jeff

  4. Although we’ve never met face to face, I have always been both inspired and unformed by your blogs posted by the BCE.

    May God bless you and keep you as you are going through great moments of uncertainty.
