My husband's dad went to the doctor the week before Christmas because of difficulty breathing and they said that he had fluid on his lungs so he was scheduled for an outpatient procedure to drain it off. He had 2 liters drained the day before Thanksgiving. We saw him on Sunday and he was still short of breath and he ended up back in on Monday with more fluid. The first fluid they drained had no cancer cells but the second one did. We haven't gotten a clear diagnosis yet but it's looking like he has lung cancer with this "malignant pleural effusion". In looking online, that gives him just a few months to live. He's been healthy up until 2 weeks ago. In addition, hubby's mom went into the hospital the next day with severe pain in her hips. She has bad bones and has had 3 hip replacements and was told she needed more surgery but she didn't have it yet. It's looking like she will be released in the next few days once she's able to get out of bed on her own. Please pray for hubby's dad Bob and his mom Muriel. This is going to be a difficult next few months. A blessing is that they live in a retirement community that gives them the ability to move from their house to an apartment and my FIL can come home to the assisted living portion of it. Their meals are provided as is house cleaning and stuff. They have a good support system there as well as a great little church.
