Prayers & healthy vibes would be appreciated

On Wednesday 9/14 my DH goes in for a biopsy on what they are calling a calcified lesion on his lung. The possibilities of what they will find go from a fungus or something left over from an infection which means they do nothing, to a malignant lung tumor which means they remove his entire lung. It's in a spot where the pulmonary artery and all the other blood vessels go into the lung so removing just the lobe is not possible. All of his tests lead us to believe it's not major but because of where it is at, they can't do a needle biopsy so it's major surgery. He is extremely confident that they are not going to find anything. At least that is that is what he is telling everyone. I am a pesimist by nature so I'm trying to stay positive as well. He came through the chemo for the CLL with flying colors and his doctors are really pleased. Then this stupid thing shows up on his follow up CT scan and took the wind right out of my sails. So if you can think to say a little prayer or send some healthy vibes our way I would appreciate it.

I think as women we always think the worst just so we are prepared. Don't worry yourself sick though. I'm a firm believer that positive thoughts make a huge difference in our health. My best friends mom was diagnosed with cancer on her breasts, lungs, spine and liver this past summer. She's been totally positive about everything and went for a scan a few weeks ago to find out that the chemo has gotten rid of all of the cancer aside from a few pen pokes on her spine.
Nothing but good ((((vibes))))) coming your way.

Great news - NO CANCER! They took out and biopsied a lymph node, a calcium deposit, some pus and a piece of his rib and everything checked out ok. The surgery was 3 hours and he's in some pretty significant pain but they had him sitting in a chair when I saw him at 7:00 last night. The nurses said it was pretty awesome he was able to handle sitting for an entire hour since most people don't get out of bed for a couple of days. He's still got a chest tube, catheter and about 4 different IV tubes. He looks like a macrame project gone horribly wrong! Thankfully our niece is an RN at the same hospital in the ICU unit. So while she can't actually take care of him, she is on duty today and tomorrow and will be there to check in and to keep him company since I can't visit until the evening. I feel like I can breathe again and hopefully this roller coaster is on the final down hill. DH has never been away from the dogs unless we have both been gone together. He likes to say that Bella is a mama's girl but she has been sitting in the front window whining while she waits for him to pull in the driveway. She can't seem to figure out why his truck is here but he isn't. My mom is going to let them out to potty today while I'm at work so that they aren't cooped up for too many hours. Gee I hope they come back into the house for her!

Thanks for all the BW prayers - I knew they would work!
