Looking good

“Did you hear my good news?”

PHILIP
“Not that I remember.”

TONY
“Well I don’t have the cancer in the lung they thought might have it. I was just at St. Joe’s with my doctors and that’s what they told me.”

PHILIP
“What about the other lung?”

TONY
“They don’t know yet but it’s looking good if you ask me.”

Back on the track

Apologies for the radio silence in the last weeks. As you will have been able to read from the comments in the last post, Tony is out and about, having left the hospital several days earlier than the doc would have it. Here’s a picture of Tony the day the day he left St. Joe’s. Amazing.

Back in the high life

Hi all,
Tony’s back after five days in isolation at St. Joe’s. He’s in remarkably sturdy condition. Here’s a photo I took this morning while Tony was interviewed inside Alternative Grounds by a reporter from the Toronto Star.

Tony is in the hospital

November 18, 2010

Hello all,
Tony just called me from the hospital. He’s been admitted to St. Joe’s for bleeding in his lungs. I will see him later today and let everyone know what I find out. In the meantime, I can say that his voice did not sound as weak as the last time he called me from the hospital.

Hi Everyone,

I just visited Tony at St. Joe’s. He’s got cancer, probably in the lungs, though it’s not certain if it’s in one lung or two — or even which lung. While I was there, the doctors took him for an x-ray, but I don’t know the results, — if any. In addition, he’s got heart problems, and an ugly hernia protruding from his upper abdomen. The three photos above is what he looked like at about 230pm today.

He seemed depressed and feared that they might release him.

Tony wants to thank Gwen and Cathy for coming to visit; the bananas were yummy.

More when I know.

Hospital bed - Oct 2 2009

Hi All,
I found him. Tony is in the hospital (again). He checked himself into St. Joseph’s Hospital yesterday after trying, unsuccessfully, to check himself in the day before through the emergency ward, and getting himself sent “home” at the end of the day — a bit ironic if you ask me.

He’s on the 4th floor, Room #4M16. If you’d like to visit him, he’d be delighted. I will try to see him over the weekend. Any ready-to-eat food you can bring him (only stuff that is easily chewable) will be very much appreciated, as his appetite is well beyond what hospital meal portions can fulfill.

Before you visit, check the hospital visiting times and associated regulations at stjoe.on.ca/patients/visitor/index.php.
