Tony has been coughing up blood for more than a month, though we haven’t spoken of it here. After coughing incessantly for several hours yesterday, he went to Toronto Western Hospital and they confirmed it. He was told that he had 18 months to live without surgery, which is somewhat iffy at this stage of the cancer. So he hasn’t made a decision.
After telling me the news, he lit up a cigarette and said: “Let me put it this way — a cigarette can’t hurt me now.”
More when I know more.
