My father got the results of his brain scan and PET scan yesterday. The cancer has not spread anywhere outside the lung. This is very encouraging news — and better than he expected. I was worried as well; my limited research indicated that most lung cancers aren’t detected early enough for effective treatment. His breathing test was “not as good as they would like”, but he is going to see a surgeon at Emory University on Wednesday. We’re hoping that his overall good health will encourage the doctor to go ahead with the surgery.
Thanks to everyone here for your good thoughts and prayers. Please keep them coming.
