He's got lymphoma and is currently waiting to start a stem cell transplant.

Got taken in to hospital on Saturday as he was feeling so unwell. I saw him then and mentally he was fine. Then by Sunday he didn't know who anyone was.

They've ruled out a uti and want him to have an urgent brain scan. Could a brain tumour cause mental/memory problems so quickly?

And 12yo dd wants to go and see him with me tomorrow. Is that a good idea or not? I'm worried she'll find it upsetting but if he doesn't get better..........she won't see him again ever.

Yes, a tumour can cause this sort of behaviour, dependant on where on the Brain it is. I personally would take dd after an explaining that Grandad was very poorly and might not recognise her. She is old enough to understand. I hope the outcome is positive for you all.
