  • Dear all, I'm sorry for not posting for some time now, as you probably imaging, things got worse with my dad more and more tests were carried out and still no diagnosis. He got weaker and weaker and hope was slowly slipping away as he was. He finally had a biopsy on his spine to take samplesof some tiny lesions that showed on one of the scans, the results of the biopsy was Diffuse B-Type Lymphoma. He passed away on July 22nd 2008. It turnsout that the Lymphoma was in his brain - in the Pineal Gland and had rapidly spread through his Central Nervous System. It was too late to treat by the time the diagnosed him. We are devastated that he was stolen away from us at just 66 but are grateful that he was in no pain at all, and he passed peacefully away in our armshaving spent the last 3 months at his bedside all day everyday. I am comforted that he is now at rest and would like to thank everyone on this forumfor your overwhelming support and kindness during the difficult months before his death. George Blum, 1941-2008, my daddywho I loved dearly - may you rest in peace. Kind regards,Gina
