Re-post From Living in Cambodia

 

Some sad news about Paul. This was on Battambang Connect. 

 

After a short period of suffering from  recurrent abdominal pain Paul went in for some medical tests/diagnosis.

      The final diagnosis  is pancreatic cancer, stage 4 and terminal.     Original estimate of 6 months to a year has proved to be incorrect.

    4 days ago he became unresponsive and we got him to the hospital.      

An IV and blood transfusions got him stable enough to transport him back to their home on the farm so he can be in a place he dearly loves. .

     He will stay there till he passes away being cared for by Chan and her family .       

Now he survival time is estimated to be about 7 - 10 days.     

     Paul and Chan wish's are for a proper Buddhist ceremony and cremation.      Followed by appropriate Buddhist rituals.    To be announced here at appropriate times as the situation develops.

     The farm is about 30K from Battambang and Pauls current condition really precludes visitors,

I met Paul in 2002 in Cebu Ciyu and we have been close friends since.      He moved to Thailand for awhile for a change of scenery, visited Sihanoukville, Cambodia early 2012 on a visa renewal run and

Paul was cremated in Phnom Penh on December 9.   Chan has his ashs/urn with her at the farm.   I was a witness at the cremation.  

These days I come to this forum infrequently so I've only now learned the sad news of Paul's passing.  The expression "larger than life" would be an apt description of him methinks.  I met him a few t

Any special reason that Paul's situation is not being discussed? Most people including me know pretty much everything that went down. I joined LINP when Don H. started it. That was before I moved here in 2002. We know so why try to keep it confidential?

Paul had his ups and downs. Just like all of us.

Sure hope he is going out of the country for treatment.

No. There is no treatment for stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He has gone to his farm to die.

from what i recall he is not online here lately so very doubtful any of us can discuss things with him on this site.  however he does use facebook if you want to discuss it with him and he is feeling up to it.  discussing him here won't accomplish anything.  everyone feels bad but what can we do?
