Ben was diagnosed with left testicular cancer on Friday afternoon. It started when he complained about soreness in that area. After going to the doctor Thursday, we were instructed to go to ER. The ultrasound showed that they were very concerned with what they saw and went to the Urologist on Friday. The told us from the blood tests is highly likely that it is testicular cancer (on the left) and must be removed asap. CT scan set for Monday, surgery is set for Wednesday Nov 7th. Its a journey we never expected, but God has allowed for His grand purposes that is always good! He is faithful to complete what He has started in Ben, in our family and there is no other choice but to trust Him, to surrender to Him, to offer up our lives in humility to Him! Don't know the outcome or roads we will take, but we are sure of one thing, God is leading and He has great plans for His glory and our growth in Him! Thank you all for your prayers, encouragement and love!
