    I just don't know what to think [​IMG] ...1st my fil was diagnosed with lung cancer. Now dad's brother has "something" in his chest. It all started with severe pain in left shoulder. x-rays showed a spot on the lung. They think there is a mass that has been pressing on his back causing pinched nerves. A lung biopsy is to be scheduled. Once again this is a man in his 50's. Both fil and Dennis have been heavy smokers. PLEASE if you smoke, find a way to stop....

    I feel helpless, my family is over 700 miles away. I'm worried about grandma also. She has a form of atrial fib. I don't know if her heart or her nerves can handle this.

    Please PLEASE ask a prayer for my family....I know so many ask, but what else can we do? It's the only true place I know to turn. I'm sorry to ramble...

    Lori, sure hope they get these things resolved. I watched my MIL die early from emphysema and now my BIL is on oxygen most of each day...when he isn't smoking still. It's not a pretty way to go. Wish everyone would just learn from things like this. Sure pray your family members can overcome this stuff and learn from it, too.
