My father n law was diagnosed with this on Friday night. IT has really been scary, we had to watch him go on a ventilator, be put to sleep, go through a surgical biopsy, which they doctors really didn't want to do because they were not even sure if he would survive the surgery. But he did really well, they were able to get good samples. He is still on the ventilator and he is 67 years old. I'm really scared and not sure what to think. They said we will no soon if the steriods, and other things they are giving him are going to work. This wait and see is driving me crazy, I wish they could just let him be awake, but his oxygen is just to low, on the vent it stays up in the 90's, but when we admitted him into the hospital is oxygen was in the 60's. And he was on home oxygen. It just wasn't working. I will try to remember to post back later to let you all know how he is doing,
