Positives and prayer request for my brother-in-law

Hello dear friends,

My kid sister called with some scary news.  Her hubby had prostrate cancer 2 yrs. ago, and is doctoring w/the V.A.  His dx was linked w/his service in Nam.  Now he has probable mets to lungs, and had CT done.  Will know more this week.  He also has a massive blood clot in his lower leg.  They sent him home with coumidin pills, and heprin shots.  Why they didn't put him in the hospital is beyond me !  But knowing the wonderful team of warriors on site here, I'm needing you to please keep him in your prayers for a good outcome.  He is a terrific guy, and would give anyone the shirt off his back.  Thank you !   Katie

Hello !

I received the call that Jay's CT ruled out any mets to the lungs.  As with the rest of dx's will continue to moniter, but thinking it's nothing to worry about.  There was actually 3 blood clots in the leg.  2 are what are deemed open, the other larger one is still clogged.  But it seems as if the blood thinners are working.  You folks are terrific !  Thank you for caring !   Katie  (Suzie and Jay say thank you !)
