Conservative pundit Robert Novak was admitted yesterday to a Boston hospital where he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Novak said in a written statement:
On Sunday, July 27, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I have been admitted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where doctors will soon begin appropriate treatment.
I will be suspending my journalistic work for an indefinite but, God willing, not too lengthy period.
“Dr. Lynne Taylor, a neuro-oncologist at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, said residents at the hospital are taught to check for brain tumors in patients who report having a recent car accident in which they didn’t realize they struck something.”
