Update

The bad news is cancer.
The good news is (1) that it's not the sort that is inclined to metastasize and -- according to a CAT scan -- hasn't; and (2) in spite of his other severe conditions ( heart/diabetes/asthma) they considered surgery an acceptable risk. Is being/will be done immediately.
All your good wishes, kind thoughts and prayers have warmed my shivering heart.
Thank you.

Any answer must be some relief over not knowing. I'm sorry it's not a good answer, but really glad it's not as bad as it could be.

Continued thoughts of hubs getting home soon to harass you and leave his socks all over the floor!

Well, while it wasn't exactly the "all you have is indigestion" diagnosis, it appears not the worst either.

Our prayers and good thoughts continue to flow north.
