The "Not so Good" News

Jake has been having some swelling and went to the doctor last week to see if they could fix it. They gave him some antibiotics and sent him home. He went back for a check up yesterday because nothing was better. They did a CT scan at 3:00 pm. He got a call this morning that he needed to come in asap and to bring his mother. I was on my way to racquetball and asked if I should come right back. He said he needed some time to get ready and play and we would go when I was done. Well, after one short game, I was done!

We met Dave at the University of Utah Hospital and talked to the Urologist. He told us that the CT scan showed a tumor by Jake's bladder and he has enlarged lymph nodes all up and down his spine and down his legs. His right leg is really getting swollen!

He goes in for a biopsy tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. I don't know how long it takes to get the results, but we will post it here when we know.

Jake is taking it all in stride. I asked him what he thought on the way home. He said, "Dang!" That's a bummer! He's not depressed or upset...yet. We're just going to take it as it comes and do what needs to be done.

Thank you for your prayers!

Love to you all!
