Default Prayers for my son please

My twenty year old son Nick got sick with a cough and a fever last Tuesday the 11th of April, went to the Dr. and was given anti-biotics, went back Saturday as they didn't seem to be working and was given some different. Tuesday this week he went back and they did a chest x-ray and saw what they thought was an aneurysm on his heart, they sent him to the emergency room where they found a mass they are calling a tumor.

further tests have shown multiple growths or tumors on his lungs. from my reading, in the absence of the biopsy results, it seems that these growths can be things other than cancer though that is less likely.

We do know that they did not find any in any other parts of his body at this point, other than that I can not give you any more information.

Apart from 4 wheeling and boating with me, Nick has never engaged in any risky behaviors, does not smoke, do drugs etc. He is studying engineering at U of H.

I know that with modern medicine that there is all kinds of good outlooks, still I have a hard time dealing with this wait for the test results.

Thanking you in advance

Mark my thoughts and prayers are with you and your son. Modern medicine is wonderful but I know that from personal experience that the power of good thoughts by you, your son and everyone else and prayers really do work miracles!

Prayers sent. My 21 year old daughter has had a fever and cough since the weekend. I've been ignoring her because she can be a whiner but I'm gonna go hug her right now.
