So back in October my brother went to the doctor cause he had lost like 40 pounds for like no reason and they tested him for diabetes cause it runs on my mom's side.  Well that came back negative and we moved on thinking it was stress from a new job.  Well flash foward to Christmas time and he is still loosing weight.  So my folks took him to see a doctor again.  And he had blood drawn and they are testing it for HIV and his doctor is also wanting to test for cancer thinking it might be lung.  My brother called and talked to me today about all this and it's nuts to hear.  The worst is the waiting now cause it's the unkowning....

i hope it all works out. losing that much weight is alarming but doesnt have to be a death sentence. it could be something not quite as bad. im sure with family around to support him everything will be fine.

So sorry that your family is going through that. I will keep your brother lifted up in prayer.

It's hard to hear when a loved one is going through something, but sounds like he has a very supportive family and that is the best thing for him at this time.

The waiting is the hardest part. I hope it's nothing serious. Does he feel sick?
