Hi Karen, these types of cancer are tough to deal with since you have to live with them. The reasons for not having it in May is that the Doctors feel like they don't want to be giving treatments unless it's for sure you have to have them. Sometimes they just miss it. As for visitors, I wouldn't turn people away that are wanting to see him. Each person is different, but for me, I liked seeing people I knew it made me feel just a bit better. I wish him an easy path ahead.
