    Well, today I just found out that a node they cut out of my sinus tested positive for Hodgkin's Disease. Don't know what stage yet. I visit the oncologist Monday. Both my family doctor and surgeon tell me that this is VERY treatable and that if I had to choose a type of cancer, then this it.

    So I'm asking for prayers for my wife, my little boy and for God's plan in my life.

    How frightening!!! I know Hodgkin's Disease used to be very much a death sentence but I believe it's MUCH more curable today although any form of cancer diagnosis is truly frightening!! I pray for God's peace and comfort on you and your family and that He will bring you through to a full recovery.

    My doctors assure me that this is VERY curable and that I will live to see my boy grow up. By "chance", I got ahold of the nurse on the phone at Oncology and she said "Brian, I've done this for 32 years....YOU ARE GOING TO SURVIVE THIS."

    That is wonderful to hear! But I'm sure it is still frightening, none the less.

    Give that nurse a hug when you see her. She's part of God's healing process along with the doctors and scientists and the guy that mops the department's floor after everyone's gone home.

    Will be praying for your total and complete healing until the Lord tells us otherwise.

    They might have caught it early. CT scans show no problems anywhere else in my body. PET scan Sunday morning. You'll be at church, I'll be getting tested. pls pray for my wife and 6 year old.

    I start chemotherapy on Monday Feb. 3rd. They're not sure if I'm truly in Stage 2 yet or not. They are not taking chances, so I'm being treated as if I really am in Stage 2. if I'm lucky and t is NOT in my bone marrow, I only have 4 months of chemo. Then radiation.
