We need prayers, please

My hubby has been having knee pain for the past few months. He saw a local orthopedic surgeon who declared that “Nothing is wrong” and then drained some liquid from the knee. End of that surgeon’s care! So then I suggested that hubby see one of the orthopedic doctors at the clinic where I’ve gone for neck and hip problems. He saw a doctor a week ago, they scheduled an MRI.

He had the MRI yesterday. The doctor is pretty sure that it’s cancer. Supposedly the kidney cancer has metastisized. We need a full-body MRI to see if it’s gone anyplace else. He’s probably going to have to have his entire left knee and the tumor removed and have a knee replacement. Ouch!

Hubby goes in for a biopsy next Wednesday; we are to be in the hospital at 5:30 in the morning. Then we have to wait eight days for the next appointment with the orthopedic doc to see the results and figure out where to go next.

Needless to say, I’ve been crying a lot and praying a lot. His last checkup showed that he was in remission from the kidney cancer but apparently it’s still around somewhere.

Thank you.
