Dale has been diagnosed with Stage 4 -non small cell Lung Cancer. on March 16th, 2020. He was in the hospital until March 20th, while tests, were performed, and due to the Corona virus, was not allowed to have family or visitors be there with him for support. After a variety of the normal cancer tests, there was a meeting of the cancer doctors that have been working with him in Hinsdale Amita Hospital. The final diagnosis was hard for us to swallow. Since we have faith not only in our Heavenly Father, but also for his family doctor and the cancer doctors that we have working on him. He went into the hospital to have a brain Mri on Wednesday, March 25th, at which time he had a very bad reaction to the contrast used during the procedure. The previous week, he was give twilight anesthesia to have stents put into his bile ducts and also for the pulmonologist to do a biopsy. Unfortunately, Dale's breathing was stopped after a few minutes into the procedure, and he had to be revived, and returned to his room to recouperate. The surgery was redone on Wednesday under general anesthesia, and after a few hours, he was moved to the recovery room. He was released to go home on Thursday, March 19th.
