We just heard from our friend Aaron… God has answered our prayers! Here is a clip from his blog:
I just got back from the lung specialist (Pulmonologist) and have some news. The tumor that I have in my right lung is called a Carcinoid Tumor and it is benign. That’s great news. So I won’t be dying from this problem but we are going to have to take care of it. The Pulmonologist has been treating lungs for 25 years and has only seen this in two other occasions. The tumor has been growing in my right bronchial tube over the last year. It has caused my right lung to fill up with blood. They have removed some of the blood and are going to have to wait for the rest of the blood to be absorbed into lung before they can remove the tumor with a laser. That is what we are hoping anyway. I will hear back from the doctor tomorrow. She has told me that I won’t be able to travel back to North Africa for a couple months until they can get this tumor removed. So I am praying for the quickest possible solution. So we can praise the Lord that it is nothing malignant.
