Turns out Granddad _also_ has lung cancer. The doctors say it’s very fortunate that they caught it now, because it wasn’t there two weeks ago. It’s still very small and isolated. Originally they thought they could remove it when they did the heart surger, but now they don’t want to go that route and will use radiation instead. (But, I think, _not_ chemo).
Granddad’s surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. His doctor said his prognosis is very good.
Updated: Surgery has been postponed. The doctors say they aren’t sure Granddad is strong enough yet, and want to let him recover more fully from his back surgery. It would probably help if he’d eat something. Preferably _not_ fried potatoes.
