    He wasn't breathing well, so my brother (they're in Fla) who is a nurse got him to the hospital. An X-ray showed what they thought was a hilar tumor in his lung. A CT Scan was scheduled for yesterday; it wasn't a tumor - I think this is worse - it's an aortal annuerism - the size of a lemon! Not his lung but his heart. The options are: catherization, which is an operation itself, then open heart surgery to correct it.

    He's 92 yrs old, he opted out of the operation. In other words, he's a walking time bomb.

    He has 7 kids scattered around the U.S. We are all scrambling around trying to get flights to see him before he goes. [​IMG]

    I'm leaving Sat before dawn, I hope he hangs in there, so we can all see him! Wish us luck! Thank you BYC people for any wishes or prayers you can send our way!

    So So Sorry - My dad passed away 2 years ago Nov 9th of the same thing he was 73.
    Even though for many many years I tried to think of him passing because it is normal
    and inevitable, I was totally un prepaired and have not taken it well. He is on my mind every day.
    You, Your Dad and your intire family will be in my thoughts.

    My step dad died her at my house Sept. 1, 2007 he was 54 yrs. old and had glioblastoma brain tumor. There is no cure and most onl live 9 mths. after diagnosis. My advice is tell him everything you ever wanted to say. Don't hold back. All the memories and I love you's do it now. No regrets later if you say it all now. Hug and kiss him share every thought.
    I am so sorry, It is so hard when a loved one is ill and passing. You are in my thoughts.
