My dad has B cell diffused Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Supposedly usually curable, but he also has double pneumonia, he has at least 3 of the contra-indicators, and his has been diagnosed (but not by MDAnderson yet) as high grade, which can mean it has spread.
They checked his heart yesterday. No news on that. His kidneys are not functioning. They did a renal ultrasound yesterday. Have not heard on that. Today is a bone marrow test and PET scan.
MDA has requested the specimen Hermann SW got in the biopsy Monday. They want to do their own diagnosis.
Our family is not expecting to hear from the 2nd doctor again till Tuesday–when all the tests will have been read.
