Yeah, very aggressive.
Last week he didn't feel that well and he was admitted to hospital with what seemed like bronchitis, but then they discovered he had a severe case of leukemia, he didn't respond to the treatment and he fell into a coma, he died this morning.
Thanks for the details. How horrible, words can't even describe.
Wow... imagine that: You go into a hospital thinking you have a bronchitis, and then hear you have a leukemia and then.... don't ever come out of the hospital. What a shock that must be for the family.
Almost the same thing happened to my grandfather many years ago. My gramma took him to the hospital for a bad cough and he went into some kind of coma state, and never came back. For him it was a blood infection probably that he'd had for months due to some medical malpractice, and yes I can honestly say that for some reason when it's such a surprise and comes out of nowhere it is much more painful, so my heart goes out to all of Luzzi's friends and family... when it happens like this it's almost surreal and impossible to comprehend
But as someone said at least he didn't have a long painful period of suffering, because that is horrible too. At least he is in a good place now
But so young
