In Which I Recount the Untold Joys of MRIs and Open-Backed Hospital Gowns
Things aren't looking good. Cam's been through the gamut of medical testing, and is getting an MRI.
He realizes things are really bad when his dad starts calling him "buddy" and trying to do things like have a campfire and make s'mores.
His dad gets him an appointment with a specialist, who diagnoses him with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a degenerative neurological disease more commonly known as mad cow disease.
Bottom line? It's going to kill Cam, and in a matter of just a few months. But first he's going to suffer from delusions, dementia, muscle weakness, and the twitchiness that's already gotten him into trouble. This isn't good at all.
