#1 I would say he is likely done for at this point. If it is metastatic then they are fighting a losing battle. It will go where the blood supply is greatest as in bone marrow, liver, lungs, brain.

Once it gets to the brain, dementia is not uncommon.

#2 He had such pains back in Milwaukee, but back then he would just brush it off.

#5 Why does this start to sound like some plot from a Steven King novel where an injured party curses their tormentor with a long, slow, painful debilitating curse that comes true?

#8 "Once it gets to the brain, dementia is not uncommon."

In Oogo's case, how would you tell?

#10 In Oogo's case, how would you tell? He'll announce his candidacy for the US Presidency.

#11 Femur. Strongest bone in the body. Fracturing that is only due to severe trauma, but most likely metastasic cancer or else radiation and chemo. At this point, its probably pallitave care only. God help Hugo to convert his heart and repent, because he will be standing before Him soon.

#12 Despite being an arrogant, self-important, ignorant, drug-addled thug, he may really have thought he was doing stuff to help people.

That is the problem with socialism. While it is true that taking $1000 from one person and giving $200 to five creates more happy people than sad ones today -- tomorrow there will not be anyone around with $1000 to be taken.

Anyway, in advance, RIP Mr. Chavez. Hopefully, your country will mourn for you only a short time as their lives improve.

#13 On an x-ray, cancer metastasized to the bone looks like a fungus working its way out of a dead tree branch. Radiate the tumor, and the bone collapses. I would not wish this kind of pain on anybody, period.

#14 y'all are being too kind to this POS who helped fund FARC, funnel drugs, cavorted with Iranians and China and helped push "Bolivarian" (read: charismatic populist communism) nationalization of private enterprise. I hope it's painful, slow, debilitating, and just as fun for him as his victims....perhaps then, he'll learn humility and God's grace. If not? Burn in hell, pendejo

#15 Ditto, Frank. Too bad these pendejos can't figure it out at a time when it would help the living.
