Hi again, everyone.
This is a simple update to let you know what Patrick's recent MRI results indicated and how the Shaw's will move forward. Like the PET scan, Patrick's MRI also showed an "area of concern" in Patrick's lower abdominal cavity, near his prostate. Dr. Friel (Patrick's colorectal surgeon) wishes to investigate this further by obtaining a tissue biopsy. The good news is: this will be a "CT guided biopsy" procedure and is minimally invasive. It will be performed outpatient on April 23, 2014.
Please continue to bombard heaven with PRAYER that this "area" is NOT CANCER. Our sincerest hope is that this will prove to be something benign like inflammation or scar tissue. Pray. Pray. Pray.
