In the spring of 2016, Dad was having some stomach issues, which his doctors thought might be from an ulcer.  A CT scan did not show any ulcers, but in the background the radiologist saw a Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on the kidneys. The condition was asymptomatic at that point,  and thought to be slow-growing, so Dad decided against any treatment. Observation and quarterly CT scans showed that the lymphoma was growing only incrementally. Dad felt fine, continuing with his regular activities at home and in the Hillandale community.
The week of July 23, 2017, Dad started experiencing bouts of nausea and vomiting. When it didn't abate in a few days, Suzy took Dad to the Kaiser Permanente urgent care. Another CT was done, showing that the lymphoma had spread to Dad's duodenum and lymph nodes. He was admitted to Holy Cross Hospital on the 29th for treatment.
