Needing Your Prayers

I have been avoiding blogging this, hoping that we will find out it was a mistake. Unfortunately it's not and my sweet friends did receive bad news. The family I spoke about that her husband had a tumor in his lung-they had it removed last Monday. It came back from pathology and it is lung cancer-not what they had expected to find out. It was shocking. It is a rare form of large-celled lung cancer(large-celled being better that small-celled from what I understand) that is normally found in older smokers. Randy is 35, works out, eats well, is normal weight, and has never smoked. He should not be sick. Period. Some good news is that they do believe that they did get all the tumor and he will recover from the surgery and go back to work in six weeks. They will do four rounds of chemo every 28 days. We think this is a preventative treatment so that the cancer doesn't return. The doctor did advise them to have their home checked for radon-a gas that has been found to cause lung cancer in young people. I think everyone should do this if it can prevent cancer. They are doing really well, all things considered. They have two precious girls who are four and one. Please pray for Randy and Angela. Your prayers are powerful.

I will def pray. It is tough to find out that someone young has cancer. I know that God will hear very prayer and that He will touch this family.

This is so sad - but it sounds like they are being very positive under the circumstances. Prayers from us...
