Middle aged man, friend of my family, in his late 40s, let go from his job a few weeks ago, no health insurance, has been suffering from mood swings and headaches for several months. The man has also been forgetting stuff lately.
Family thought it might just be a mid-life crisis that a lot of people experience.
Last night the man started running a high fever. Wife took him to local small town emergency room where an x-ray of his head was done.
x-ray showed a baseball sized tumor in the brain.
Small town hospital shipped him to larger town for cat-scan and mri. Scans showed the cancer has spread into the sinus area.
As of this morning, he is in Houston.
