My mom & Jerry returned from a very long day at Kaiser in Los Angeles yesterday and were able to meet with several physicians though still don't have many details.
It was confirmed that on Jerry's last PET scan, that "bright or hot" spots were seen in his lymph nodes. They've now scheduled him for a biopsy of the lymph nodes back in LA this Wed. 2/4. His doctor is optimistic that they will be able to do the biopsy but he does run the chance of it not being able to do it because of built up scar tissue in his lung. In that case, Jerry would be sent to a specialist at Harbor City Kaiser in Long Beach to have the biopsy done on yet another date.
So, for the next weeks, our family waits on these doctors to move forward to give us more answers. We'd like to see it all a bit more expedited, but in the meantime will have to hang on the fact that this is a part of God's perfect timing and not of our own.
