An Unfortunate Turn of Events

FavIcon An Unfortunate Turn of Events:

It came without warning as it does in so many lives. We had noticed that Dad was slowing down a bit. We just thought it was his missing leg keeping him from being active. One morning he noticed an unusual mass below his rib cage. It concerned us enough that we went to the urgent care over the weekend rather than waiting until Monday when we could contact his doctor.

That got the ball rolling. They gave him some antibiotics and scheduled some tests. When we saw the oncologist, he told us we were looking at cancer. He scheduled a biopsy to better determine the next course of action.

That is where the ball got dropped. We don’t know why, but we were never contacted about the biopsy. When we visited the oncologist, we learned that at least three of his patients had been let down by the system.

We finally got the biopsy but by now he was too weak to take the next step. Yesterday we put him in the hospital and tonight he has been moved to hospice care for his final days.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he fooled them again. He has been struck by lightning two or three times; already survived cancer once, lost a big toe when he let a green hand throw a piece of pipe at him and much later lost part of the same leg to what may have been complications due to the toe injury.

I am going to miss him. When I read “Think and Grow Rich”, every chapter was something that he had already taught me. When we worked together, we could build on each other’s ideas to create something better than either of us could have done alone. He was working on a story that I will likely be sharing with you soon. It is an unfortunate turn of events that may leave the story at one book.
