This Home page is an overview of the situation with Hatcher, how this site works, and where to go for current information. Details and status updates on Hatcher are in the Journal tab.
In mid-January, Hatcher was complaining of abdominal pain but it went away after a few days. Over the next several weeks, the pain intensified and subsided repeatedly. By the end of February, the pain was increasingly worse and he was taken to the ER where they found that his liver enzymes were elevated. That led to an ultrasound, then CT scan, then oncologist, PET scan, hospital admission, biopsy, MRI, and endoscopy over the next 2 weeks. On 3/10, we were told initial pathology had come back as some type of carcinoma. On 3/11, endoscopy found a tumor in his stomach. Please read the first journal entry dated 3/14 for more details.
