    One of the grad students from my time at Wayne State had been having back problems... and then he went into the ER where they took it seriously and found a tumor on his back.

    The whole research lab went to visit him during lunch hour I think right before surgery. They had him on morphine and then took him off because the doctors were worried about kidney damage.

    Obviously he didn't know, know me since I was essentially an intern.

    His wife was normally a cheerful and sunny person. I saw her cry and the rest of the girls in the lab could do nothing more than a group hug and be there for anything she needed.

    When my time was up, he was still recovering. I'm pretty sure he recovered but I will find out (after 4 years!!) when I meet up with the professor later in June.

    Take care of yourself too. It's harder when you feel even crappier from neglecting yourself.

    Why hello there reality, how are you doing?
