Many of you have already been praying for our son Matthew this week if you saw my posts on Facebook regarding him having a biopsy today. On Wednesday he had a CT Scan to see what type of lump had been discovered on his lower left abdomen. The CT Scan revealed that he had an enlarged lymph node, and also several other enlarged lymph nodes throughout his torso. A biopsy was scheduled for today to determine the reason for the swelling. The preliminary results today per the Dr. are that it appears to by lymphoma. They will not have the final results until next week, probably Tuesday, which will show more definitely what type of lymphoma, and what stage.
Obviously, this is not the results we were hoping for, but God is already at work in this situation. Matthew feels fine, and the only reason he discovered this lump was because he had some stomach cramping on Sunday, and felt the lump. He thought it might be a hernia, so he went to the DR. on Monday...and the rest is history. Hopefully they have discovered it early enough so that the treatment will be effective and curative. We will definitely be praying to that end.
Please keep Matt, Nicole and son Noah in your prayers, as this will be a difficult time for all. Please also pray for us, as we are here in Florida, which is much too far away from Maine.
Thank you for your prayers.
