20 We wait in hope for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
Lura stayed overnight with Dad last night. She said he was anxious this morning in anticipation of having the biopsy done. We do not yet know when they will do the surgery to place the rod into his femur and I think that's weighing on his mind, too.
This morning, after performing a biopsy of the large tumor in Dad's hip, they took him to have his Skeletal Scan done. They did 25 x-rays.
Dad is resting comfortably in his room now. Mom packed a bag so that she can stay with him tonight, tomorrow...
The pathology report on the biopsy of the tumor will take 2-4 days. So again, we wait...
Unless something else comes up, I won't post again 'till we know more.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to read my updates, for your calls of encouragement, for offering to do my laundry, feed Mom's cat, take my boys, etc... Thank you for your emails and comments on the blog. I'm printing all of the emails and comments to keep in a folder for Dad. Someday, he'll love reading through them. Please keep praying...especially for Dad's comfort and for peace for him.
