A Quick Update

Good News

sunny 36 °C

By the end of the day yesterday the medics had confirmed that they believe that Dave has a bacterial pneumonia and he is responding to treatment although a little more slowly than they had originally hoped. I can tell you that by the end of the day he was noticeably better. The significant signs were twofold - he asked for his laptop and he was getting bored.

The doctor also confirmed no brain cancer which had been their great fear when they learned that he had had prostate cancer. They are still going to do another MRI today to have another look at the brain because there are some little vessel blockages which they now think might be caused by cholesterol. Dave's friend, Alex Mercer, commented that the really good news is that they have determined that David DOES have a brain!

We are hoping he will be home Sunday. I'll only have a couple more days in the Dubai Derby!
