3. Have you heard some news?
I know it does not look good, but I am hoping against hope.

4. No, but if he was too sick to attend his sister's funeral
and he is thinking about his replacement, he's probably in his last days.

5. I suspect you're right...
but it also could just be extra precaution. At least I hope so. It's hard to imagine the Senate or the world without EMK.

7. It could be that treatements are making him sick
or weakened his immune system enough he needs to avoid public gatherings.

8. Someone posted that he attended one of the services
It could be that he was too frail to attend the big public service where many many people would likely greet him. I would guess that that could expose him to germs his body simply could not handle. (This might be working too hard to put a positive face on it - and I have absolutely no medical expertise.)

6. me too
My dad died from brain cancer a few years ago. He was about Sen. Kennedy's age, and from what I've been able to learn, their illnesses took similar paths. It's tough to watch.

11. Me too. Let's hope he is enjoying his beloved spot by the sea.
Just picture him enjoying the Cape, being where he loves to be, with his family & faithful dogs by his side.
