Worse news

Ben's cancer has proved inoperable. He has said his goodbyes to friends and family in the hospital on Sunday afternoon; then later that night, slipped into a coma. He has contracted pneumonia, and the end is near.

His mother and sisters are with him.

I don't know what else to say.

I missed your original notice. Not a lot I can say other than I'm sorry to hear this.

Thank you. It's the speed with which things are moving that throws me, I think. I mean, I've seen him getting thinner, more emaciated, sicker by the week, but I never thought...and truthfully, neither did he, and he's a doctor, for chrissakes!

It's just so unfair.

Thank you. See my comment to hesadevil above...it's so very hard to get my head round the fact that this is really happening, and so quickly.

Pneumonia wiped out my father in 18 hours, three months ago. I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry to hear of your father's passing. Ben's still hanging on, but last thing I heard, his kidneys were starting to fail, so...
