hey all. my little brother just found out he has a tumor in his foot and he is going to the oncologist on tuesday. i would really appreciate any prayers or good vibes anyone has to offer. hopefully, it's benign....but we just don't know right now. and if any of you have time, could you stop by my blog (in my siggy) and tell my family personally? i know my parents are really freaking out and they could use the support/advice/suggestions of others. he's only 17 and this is really hard on us and he's so scared. thanks so much, everyone.
i just talked to my dad and got an email from my bro. the oncologist said he has seen this many times and he isn't worried at all. he has an appointment on monday for surgery. they will actually have to remove some of the bone and the marrow from his foot (it will be replaced with cadaver marrow & bone) and then they will do the biopsy. the doc said he is sure it isn't malignant, but i will start breathing normally again when the test results actually SAY that. thanks again so much for all the prayers and well wishes. my family was deeply touched by your kindness. thank you from the bottom of my heart!
