- Dr. Rosen had always intended on admitting Ed to St.
Luke's Cancer Center on September 23. Due to his respiration problems,
he transferred straight from MCI to St. Luke's.
- Ed underwent several tests to try to identify the cause
of the respiration problems. The doctors were also trying to identify
every possible variable that could influence chemotherapy if he decided to
carry on with that treatment option.
- The medical team at St. Luke's feel fairly confident
that he is suffering from AML leukemia.
- Ed was exhausted most of the day, and had very labored
breathing most of the day.
