I wanted to post a quick message letting everyone know that Brad is in the hospital. I won't go through all of the details but he had been having strong chest pain and back pain as well as other miscellaneous problems. A CT Scan has revealed a little pneumonia in his left lung as well as a 3.2cm mass in his upper left lobe. They have not done a Brochoscopy or Biopsy yet to determine what the mass is yet. I suspect that will be tomorrow (they are waiting to see if antibiotics improves the area. He is also currently under TB isolation at the hospital because the mass was unknown and they could not rule out Tuberculosis. I don't think he has TB but they are following protocol by imprisoning him in a small insulated room which has him not a happy camper.
I am exhausted and emotionally spent. He is at Methodist hospital where Liviana was born and she "kind of" was in the hospital (since the Children's NICU is on the Methodist Hospital side). It is surreal being back there worrying about the mortality of a loved one. My greatest fear is obviously lung cancer since Brad smokes. Don't worry, I have mentally Bi***** him out several times. I will move to verbally when he is feeling better :).
Please keep him and the kids in your thoughts. They miss their daddy so much and I know he hates not being able to see them also.
I will keep everyone updated.
Happy 8th Birthday Ava!
