Cancer.

Jerry received a call around 5:30 tonight giving him the bad news that he has cancer in his "natural lung" as the doctors call it. In June he had received a CT scan which showed a small hole in his lung. He had another CT scan last week that showed the hole had become about the size of a small bouncy ball. The doctors could see a mass on the inside of it. He was biopsied yesterday and received the call this evening.

Finally, they have an answer for his severe weight loss, weakness, & health deterioration. He never recovered from the transplant of his left lung several years ago and has only become more susptible more illness' over the years. We are waiting on my mom to have a lengthy conversation with the doctors tomorrow to find out more.

I fully believe in prayer & ask my friends that you'll pray the fort he following; that comfort & peace is brought to my mom & Jerry throughout this whole new chapter of illness that he's now entering. That Jerry stays strong to battle this cancer.
