I wasn't there at the time, but my mother noticed the problem right away and called for the doctor. Luckily, he recovered ok. But what caused the problem is troubling.

Last year, and I posted this in my journal at the time, it was discovered he had lung cancer (which is not surprising as he smoked for years), so he had to have surgery on that, but when they did some tests beforehand, they found that coronary arteries were almost all blocked. So first, he had to have quadruple bypass surgery. Then a month later, he had surgery to remove the cancer in his lung.

Well, long story short, he then got cancer in the prostate, which led to this procedure on Thursday. Then the TIA happened, and they found a problem with an blood artery in his brain. The cause? A foreign substance, determined to be something METAL. The line of thinking is it must be a tiny piece that got caught in the blood stream from one of those surgeries last year. Can you fucking believe that shit?

So now he has to go to a specialist. Apparently there are like four people in the entire country that know how to deal with this. Luckily, one is located just north of Boston. They are scheduling an appointment with him tomorrow.

Unreal.
Fuck, Phanan, sorry about all of that. Must be terribly hard on you all.

I wish him and your family nothing but the best.

phanan, i am so sorry that's so terrible that any time he goes in for one thing, something else terrible happens. thank god they've caught all this, at least. but damn. i'm glad to hear there's a specialist to close to there, and he doesn't have to go across the country for his treatment.

Yeah, it sounds like fun, right, until you realize that you're watching TV in Tennessee. Then, oddly enough, it's not so much fun anymore.

Thanks everyone. They don't think it will require brain surgery, which would be very good news. But we need to go over all the options. Needless to say, we need to be very careful that his blood pressure doesn't get very low.

Predicament: My parents forbid texting and refuse to get a texting plan for that reason, but there's really no other way girls like to communicate anymore.

3) I've been calling you Maya since the Fall, woman
