It has taken me a whole day of thought to post this. My heart is heavy with this news.
A couple of days ago I had the great pleasure to speak with Paul. He was very stressed but in fairly good spirits with the challenges he is facing. He has been left on the toilet for long periods of time while they gather enough folks to move him. He has gone thru new hallways in a hospital that won't accomodate the width of his wheelchair.
Last night I got a call from Kathryn - They finally found a machine to do the scan to look at the mass from the first round of his stay and they found it in the new wing of the hospital. How can you not know what you have in a hospital
Kathryn told me the news is not good. The mass they found is a huge tumor and is located near his kidney. He is suffering from the mass impinging on the kidney. They also told them the tumor is malignant. I have not details on this issue. They also have decided he has pneumonia which further complicates things.
They are meeting with a team of doctors on Monday but the news is not positive so far.
This has been very taxing on me personally so I apologize if this is not a cogent post
