Good Buddy Has Cancerous Tumor on Kidney
« on: June 27, 2012, 10:37:06 AM »
A close friend of mine, Mike from St. Petersburg, just found out he has a cancerous mass on his kidney. 

Mike has recently gone through the loss of his wife of more than 40 years, and his spirits were already pretty far down the drain. 

They both awoke one morning, Nancy said she needed some sort of electrolytic sports-type drink because she wasn't feeling well.  Mike got her what they had left in the house and Nancy said she'd like a little more.  Good old Mike made a quick trip to the store--no more than 20 minutes--and when he returned, Nancy was already growing cold.

Now, he is faced with this.

Mike is a member of Gun Owners of America, has a carry permit, and is an all-around good guy.  Haz knows him and had the priviledge of helping him get a nice little Russian sidearm for his very own. 

Mike goes in for a PETSCAN today, and surgery the first of next week.  Docs are expressing "guarded optimism."  But that's just another way of saying "we just don't know."

I know the power of prayer, and I am asking each of you to put Mike in the list.
 
Put me on there, too, please.  Between losing Lady Haz, her best friend Cathy, then Nancy, and my own Mom riddled with Alzheimers, I am really feeling the burden. 

Thanks, all,

Crusader Rabbit

You got it Crusader.

Life Sucks sometimes and way to often....but I've considered all the options and have concluded that it is still the best game in town.

It also seems like you gotta bounce a few times on the bottom before things start moving up again.  Hang in there and take care.

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

My Dad had that and they wound up removing one kidney.
The only side effect he has noticed in the last 10 years is that, being a heavy coffee drinker, he spends about twice as much time in the bathroom.

Prayers that it is contained within the kidney.
My uncle had the same thing nine years ago and had one removed, and just last week a lady from my church had a kidney removed due to cancer. My uncle had no further treatment for that problem and doctors say the lady will not need treatment either.

Short of God's healing hand intervening, I pray for the best case scenario the the surgery is successful and that no further treatment is necessary after surgery.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Prayers and all the best wishes,

Chuck

Tell him to keep his spirits up, and yours too.b
Hopefully it hasn't spread or require dialysis ( it sucks, but the other option is much worse)
