John found out from someone last night at bowling that Bob is currently in the Intensive Care Unit at an east side hospital. We don’t have any more details at this time, except that no surgery has been performed, but John feels pessimistic that Bob might be in the advanced stages of liver cancer and might not pull through.

The woman John talked to has been in contact with Bob’s sister in Columbus, who is pretty upset right now.

I’m feeling helpless because there isn’t a damned thing I can do.
