We don’t even know what to say about this.

From his letter:
In August of last year, I underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in my abdomen. That operation was thought to have been a success, but it caused a cascade of secondary complications — which I have been fighting in hospital ever since. It was a long and hard fight with many setbacks, but I was steadily, if slowly, overcoming each obstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health.
However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.
I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.
Krauthammer is truly an intellectual giant. His loss will be a devastating one.
This one hurts

Fox News just read a letter from @krauthammer saying he has only a few weeks left to live b/c of an aggressive cancer. He has been an amazing colleague and friend. He was brilliant, generous, kind and an inspiration to everyone who met him. Keep him and his family in your prayers
