    I just got off the phone with Kathryn and the news was not good. They took Paul back to KU hospital. Besides his high Potassium level he is now having some kidney issues as well. He was not passing urine and they ended up installing a catheter to help.

    Tomorrow they are going to take him over to a place with an open MRI to finally look at that mass they discovered the first time he was in the hospital. They have a new doctor now and he seems to have a better handle on how to help Paul so hopefully they are on the right track this time. 

    Kathryn does read your posts to him so please don't be shy to post on these threads. 

    Get well my friend. We need you back here!

    Oh crud, well, maybe they'll get to the bottom of it now, and you can get on with your life soon, Paul. That is a bumpy ride. Prayers for a quick diagnosis, successful treatment and a speedy recovery. This place just isn't the same without you around, my friend. Hang tough Paul & Kathryn!

    I was wondering for a while now what was going on...thanks for the update, Gary.
