Damn, My hubby's kidney cancer is back again!!... It's now in his lungs.

It's deep in the center in the lymph nodes. He just got a pet scan and they discovered two more. It's inoperable and he'll either do Chemo or radiation. He'll make the decision with his oncologist this Thursday.
What a way to start out the new year! Neither option is good. He'll be on Chemo until it stops working (which is about 4 mos. to a year if it works at all) It also can have severe side effects and some people go off and just succumb to the cancer. He's really, really not looking forward to that. If he goes the radiation route it will damage his lungs and they said he'd probably be on oxygen and steroids. Very discouraging prognosis!
It's even worse than I have stated but I can't think about that now.
I wish I could sound more upbeat and positive, but it's hard right now...maybe later. Prayers would be very much appreciated...as we both need them.
Thanks, Auntie
