As of 1:15 this afternoon, the Associated Press is reporting that Senator Kennedy was diagnosed earlier today with a malignant brain tumor in his left parietal lobe. According to the brief report, treatment (which will be fine-tuned after more tests) will probably include radiation and chemotherapy. However, the senator has not suffered any further seizures and is “resting comfortably.”
Still no word from the administration on whether Senator Kennedy will be speaking at commencement (probably because they are waiting to be able to make a statement one way or the other.) Meanwhile, we at Wesleying send our best to Kennedy and his family here and elsewhere.
