Unhappy

The Bronchoscopy was done today. Both our sons were with me ..thank goodness Dr. did find out that the mass is a Tumor. In a week we will know more but he feels that it is Cancer..because of the weight loss.

I am so sorry Dove. Will they operate to remove the tumor? At the end stages of my fathers life (he was diabetic, and heart conditions), he developed lung cancer after twenty years of being a non- smoker. They removed part of his lobe I believe. Is this an option for your husband? Sometimes it's chemo, sometimes radiation, sometimes surgery. What are his options at this point?

I hope my message did not sound insensitive Marge. My father died from complications from diabetes and heart disease, not from lung cancer. He was just one of the unfortunate ones that had every possible organ disease one can imagine. Your husband has a good chance of overcoming this, and so I hope you and your family keep a postive mind about this and explore all options.

My best thoughts coming your way, Dove. I know what the waiting is like. When the waiting is done, I really hope and expect you will have a positive, relieved post for us.
