Some updates before today's entry.
The results of Mark's tests were negative and he doesn't have a tumor on his thyroid. They did see a small spot on his lung but the doctors weren't concerned about it. He is going in for more tests in a couple of months. Still keep him in your prayers and good thoughts.
Got a really nice E-mail from Adi, AKA, Snugpug. She is another one to keep in your prayers and good thoughts re her husband. Here is part of her E-mail:
"Well, things are looking up in that the infection is being contained, now that He is halfway through the course of antibiotics. But the doctors still don't know what caused it. Is that so important?
They're now rehabbing the problem with his legs. He's got feeling but minimal strength. At the most, he'll be going home in a wheelchair.
The curve ball is that the abdominal scan has shown that his kidney cyst has grown, and there are two new cysts in the liver. This is a source of concern because of the cirrhosis. However, he is too weak now to go through a biopsy. So there are still many problems that need to be tackled further along.
And as he is the househusband, he is also secondary caregiver to my parents. All that has of course ground to a halt. I need to think of a Plan B for them now.
So, one thing at a time.
And I'm so grateful for all the good thoughts that are holding us up. "
