Jim was diagnosed with a High Risk Prostate Cancer after a biopsy that resulted in a Gleason score of 8 (This is what made them think it was high risk). After having a CT and bone scan, they are confident that his cancer has not spread. Praise the Lord! We met with the surgeon, Dr. Mullins on Sept. 29 and the Oncologist, Oct. 1 We have scheduled Jim's surgery to remove the prostate on Nov. 2. We are thankful for our daughter, Sara and her recommendations and willingness to come help the day of the surgery. She has agreed to stay with him in the hospital that first night as she knows what to look for and what he will need much better that me!(Debbi) Sara will be able to ask the necessary questions and make sure everyone is caring well for her Daddy! One night in the hospital is all he should need. The surgeon comes with great recommendations and has performed over 1000 of these procedures. (He is a young doctor who did his residency at Johns Hopkins) We ask that you please pray for Jim to tolerate the surgery well and that his healing will be speedy and without complications. Thank you!!
