Need PRAYERS from everyone! UPDATE!

Prayers are needed, desperately.
We have just received really bad news about my husband.
He has Stage 4 Kidney Cancer which has also infected his lungs and brain.
He's a strong, faith filled man and is determined to beat this despite the very poor prognosis.
Please pray for my family as we deal with this.
I won't be posting much or even checking in often, but I would so appreciate all the prayers.  You guys have helped me through some bad times before and I have come to really appreciate all the blessings from having such blogging friends!

This is his "mug shot" used when he was still working at the newspaper!  I love it  I think it shows clearly what a positive outlook type person Bob really is!!

UPDATE:  Aug. 27, 2014

Bob is getting to come home later today!!  He's been doing really well in rehab, and although he must continue a stringent range of therapies, he is getting to come home tonight.  We are so looking forward to that!  He's completed all his radiation to his brain, and is currently doing his chemo.  But his strength is returning to his left arm and leg and he's doing so much better!  Thanks for all the prayers. and keep them coming.  I've received a lot of emails, and comments on my facebook as well!  So appreciated.

I just saw someone's blog that had a quote I loved. If you change "i" to "we" you can change illness into wellness!! I'm all for that!
