Thought to be in his lymph nodes

Jerry was back at Kaiser in Fontana into the very late evening on Tues. the 20th having another series of tests, this time shooting "radio active stuff" into his lungs to get a good picture of what it looks like in there (per my mom's description) LOL. They called back with some information on the findings last night (Wed.) they said based on what they are seeing, they feel as if the cancer has probably spread into his lymph nodes. They said at this point they'll fast forward everything to find out more. They have been scheduled to go back to the Kaiser in L.A on the 29th but are hoping they'll receive a call today telling them that it has been pushed to a sooner date.

This news has really worried Jerry & my mom because they were so overly cautious about having alot of information in front of them before even using the word cancer. So, they are greatly feeling that it has gone into his lymph nodes otherwise they would not have said it aloud.

They are anxious to get a call from his transplant coordinator, Sue today(she has still been an advocate for his healthcare with Kaiser since receiving the transplant 18 mo. ago).

We're praying that everything moves forward quickly so that they have all information in front of them & know what to do to move forward.
