Thanks for the post, Jeremy.

I am listening to his team of doctors now on KDKA. Mayor O'Connor is now in stable condition and is on schedule to receive his third round of methotrexate today. Dr. Lieberman, his neuro-oncologist stated that there was some bleeding from one of the tumor masses into a small ventricle in the brain which caused it to basically clog up and that caused the hydrocephalus on his brain. Dr. Lieberman also stated that "for now", his life is not in any immediate danger.

Bob O'Connor is a wonderful man and has been a breath of fresh air to this city. He is, imho, the best mayor we've had since the days of Mayor Caligiuri, who passed away in the middle of his second term. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, as well as his wife and children.

If any of you would like to send the Mayor and his family well wishes, you can do so by clicking on the link below.

I can tell he's made a difference from 2000 miles away.

He's certainly something the city has needed.

Hopefully Mayor O'Connor recovers.
