His tumor had maybe metastasized from other tumors and lesions throughout his body. His PCP had diagnosed him w dementia about 5 years before. I don't blame him. He gave the best diagnosis possible, having had him as a patient for 30 or 40 years. But when the ambulance drivers dragged him down the steps to go to emergency, the PCP suspected a (small?) Stroke. They brought him to Mercy hospital. They performed a CAT SCAN and discovered a tumor in his brain. I think it was at the outside and looked operable! Other than the dementia dad was in good health. I actually had hopes that the brain tumor had caused the dementia and I could "get my dad back". Then they did a CAT SCAN to make sure he had no other tumors present that they also would need to operate on.
He was in Mercy hospice, where they were very kind to him, for two more weeks, and then he passed. October 7, 2015. 3 years and 1 month later I am trying DESPERATELY to have a medical profession LISTEN and possibly save some lives.
