Update - John had a kidney biopsy yesterday. After finding more cancer in his bladder and damage to the tubes (don't know what they're called) from his bladder to his kidneys (kidneys looked good), the doctor recommends he have his bladder removed. He's only 57 and I know they can rebuild it from muscle, it's just such a horrible thought. He just lost his mother last month and now this. He's been fighting cancer for over 5 years now. Prayers would be appreciated.

Thank you for thinking to ask for prayers here.

I'm praying for your ex.

Skittles, my dad had bladder cancer and had his bladder removed - replaced by a baggie (ileostomy?). After a slight adjustment (2-3 weeks) it did not bother him at all. Only downside was a few infections which cipro took care of - lived for 16 years after (and died from other causes - the cancer never came back!!!)


Prayers for your ex and DD Reg's dad.

PS My ex and her husband are our best friends. Sounds crazy, but the first ones to visit after we moved, ex MIL took care of our daughter when she was born - no issues.

Thank you for that, Rocky. It's good to know. And thanks for all of the prayers for John. We'll never be best friends; however he is still my son's father - and what hurts Jared hurts me, too.

Prayers for your dad, DD.

He's currently in surgery and has a lot of support. My son is there along with four of John's five sisters and three of his brothers-in-law. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. It's been a difficult and long road.

Thanks. The doctor said the surgery couldn't have gone any better. He may get out on Monday instead of being in the week they originally thought.

It's been 4 years and I'm bringing this back up. I spoke to my son this morning and his dad's cancer has now spread to his kidneys. They will be scheduling surgery to remove at least one of his kidneys. They won't know about the second one until they get in there.

I appreciate any prayers you can provide. We all know how powerful they are!

Yes it is. Surgery is scheduled for Saturday and with times the way they are he won't be allowed to have visitors while he is in the hospital. My son is pretty bummed about not being able to see his dad.

Sending prayers. I completely feel your son with the visitation situation. We just went through that with my son after his transplant.

The surgery was Saturday and they removed his left kidney. His right kidney does have cancer. In about 4 weeks after he's done some healing they will perform another CT scan and go from there. Honestly - none of it sounds good. The doctor never actually expected the cancer to come back once his bladder was removed - and this cancer is moving fast.

Thank you for your continued prayers.
