    Please see my post on the Worship Board. I didn't want to break the rules and post it here.

    Thank you

    Thanks all for your thoughts and prayers.

    I got a call from my nephew last night and my brother has been moved to the cancer ward. They have found cancer cells in his blood stream.

    The oncologist said it could be one of several things but he didn't want to speculate and "give you false hope."

    What ever type of cancer he has appears to be quite aggressive and since it is already affecting his kidneys the doctor is quite concerned.

    I should know more this afternoon.

    Again, thank you for praying for all of us. My older sister, Kris, who is very close to my brother and spends at least one evening a week with him and his family is not handling the situation well. Please keep her especially in your prayers.

    I'll be sending warm thoughts and wishes your way...for a speedy recovery for your brother and the strength to get through whatever happens next for your family.

    I do have a short story of hope for you though. Recently a friend of my new SIL collapsed at work after doing his military physical testing and his kidneys shut down.

    Although it was a very frightening 2 weeks, they did start working again with no lasting side effects that we know of.

    Hopefully things will go as smoothly with your brother....
