While visiting with my son and his wife in Portland, I went with my daughter-in-law to a Dr appt for a follow up on a C-scan. We had a day planned, get the appt behind us, then go to lunch, keep her pedicure appt at the mall then do some shopping. What she expected to hear from the Dr. concerned her gall bladder. She, we did not expect to hear that she has a tumor in her kidney.
We were both in shock as he showed us the images and explained what we were seeing. A mass in her left kidney with a solid center. He said there was no way to biopsy it, surgery and removal of the entire kidney would be the only solution. He ordered a more complete C-scan of the surrounding area to be done the following Monday.
I was scheduled to fly home on Monday, reluctant to leave, I told them I would come back as soon as they wanted or needed me.
I talked with them last night, they will be removing the kidney as soon as she can get on the operating schedule, maybe 2 or 3 weeks.
Please remember Rhonda and her family in your prayers.
