Today’s Activity

In a few hours, my father will undergo a bronchoscopy. The doctors will examine the 3" long mass (tumor) near his trachea and perform a biopsy to determine whether it is lymphoma, relatively treatable, or a different, more dangerous type of cancer. The entire procedure will take 4.5 hours. Then we just have to wait ten to twelve days for the results.

For more details and links to definitions of terminology, go here.

I’ll write a follow–up post after the operation.
