He was not diagnosed correctly at first and when they finally found the correct diagnosis, he was already found to be at stage 4.  He he also has lupus but it isn't active as far as I know.  Our sister died of complications from Lupus, also.  He had his spleen out due to it being enlarged, as well as 2 large tumors along with it.  He had severe bleeding problems and this seems better since the spleen was removed.  He has had pneumonia almost constantly since he was diagnosed, also he had his adenoids out.  He has tumors on his kidney and liver, and enlarged lymph nodes all through his stomach area.  He has had radiation and chemo, the drugs he had and is on now I will fwd. to you since I don't know off hand.  Something called Chop, I do know.
