As I write this, I’m in the hospital with partial paralysis of both legs. The paralysis is severe enough that I can’t walk or get around with a walker.  Through a very tedious series of tests and hospital admissions we diagnosed it as being due to three prostate cancer tumors pressing on the spine.
