Update On Steve Hopkins
Update From Steve
Just returned from Oregon Health and Science University and the urologist/oncologist believes the lesion in my kidney is a low grade form of cancer. So far it is not in my lymph nodes as the first urologist I saw a couple of weeks ago reported.
The doctor intends to biopsy the lesion in my kidney and if it is indeed a low grade form of cancer, either lapriscopically, remove my Ureter and Kidney. If it is not a low grade form of cancer, then he will do open surgery and remove the kidney and my lymph nodes.
I see this as an answer to prayer. Please pray that the biopsy which will be done in about two weeks confirms it as a low grade cancer. But for now it’s good news.
Thanks to all for the prayers. As you might imagine these past few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster for me and my family. We have the peace of God in this…and I attribute that to prayer because that kind of peace is not something I am able to muster up
