Because of a suspicious swelling on an xray taken of Jim's ribs, the oncologist is ordering a bone biopsy. The radiologist read it as a concern for metastasis.

Praying this is just an infection from one of the many spontaneous fractures Jim has due to the advanced osteoporosis.

I've told Jim: it's not cancer until they say it is cancer and I'm sticking to that.

I'll be praying for a clear biopsy for Jim, and that everything is just as you say. It's NOT the C-word until they say it is. Warmest thoughts sent to both of you ! Katie

My thoughts are with you and Jim. Really hope the results of the biopsy will be good news. Stay strong.

I will say a prayer that the swelling is nothing more than an infection that is easily treatable. Jim is blessed to have your positive attitude and support. God Bless!

I'm hoping for a NEDS report from the biopsy. I agree, it's not cancer, until they say it is beyond a shadow of a doubt.
