I just got some news, and while it may be as bad as it sounded, it may not be quite as bad. Like my daughter said, never trust my sister to relay important information about health! My sister has a tendency to turn molehills into mountains and mountains into planets. She apparently listened to the worst case scenario and ran with it.
All we know right now is that he has swelling of the brain. They won't know any causes or treatment until they do an MRI. It could be as bad as my sister said, or it could be something not so bad.
Either way, it's not good, and I really appreciate your prayers.
The news is not good. It is a cancerous brain tumor. They have to make sure it hasn't spread to other parts of his body, so it could be a couple weeks before they can do surgery. On top of all this his girlfriend of several months (less than half his age) appears to be trying to make some kind of power move. She is interfering when family tries to ask the doctor questions and is asking irrelevant questions. She just keeps going on about how she is the "love of his life" and about how good she has been for him.
I appreciate the prayers so much. Thank you everyone.
Barbara, you know how much I care about you and that I know exactly where you are at right now as you were there for me almost exactly one year ago. My heart, prayers and thoughts are all with you, James and your family. Anything you need, just holler! I'll leave the window open so I can hear you better!
