prayer request for my husband please...

I'm on my phone at the moment so im going to make this pretty short, please feel free to ask questions if you want to know the full story.

Our family has been going through some really tough times this past year. My husband has had the worst of it. In late november he was hospitalized with acute kidney failure, long story short he was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, nothing they tried cured it and he had bad side effects to the steroids and the disease itself. Finally they put him on chemo and that wasn't worning either, so they increased the dose and duration and it worked! In March he was told he could stop the chemo, in April they told him he was in the clear, cured... this morning he woke up with some swelling (the first sign of kidney failure last time) and he did a home test and his levels are off the charts again... he has a test monday and an appointment Wednesday.

Please just pray that he is not relapsing and if he is, that it is an easy cure this time and stays away for good! Thank you! We just want to get back to being a normal family and we JUST started trying for #3 and can't ttc while he is on chemo.

Ugh, he's already gained 9lbs from the swelling... I'm going to say this isnt a coincidence and he is relapsing...
