My husband of 12 years collapsed last week at a local Subway. He insisted it was just the flu but he went to the doctor anyway. They took blood and his AST came back extremely high. They wanted him to have a CT scan which we did last week and we just got the results back yesterday. He has a spot on his liver and we are going tomorrow at 9:00 to see a specialist for internal disease. Of course we are scared to death because we were given the advice to pray for a benign tumor on the liver. They have also prepared us for the fact he will more than likely have a liver biopsy. I am sure you all have already experienced friends not looking at you, not knowing what to say and being very uncomfortable with your fear and anger over what is happening to you. I have no family to help and support me and my husband's family is from another country so we are really on our own with this now. My husband is only 35 and we have three children and we don't know how to talk to them about this. If anyone has any advice for us on what to do next, what questions to ask the doctor or how to respond to our kids about this? What is the next step we need to take because both of us are in a state of shock and just walking in a daze. I would be so grateful.
