Michael Douglas getting cancer came as a nasty surprise for everyone. Most of all to his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, who has a bone to pick with his doctors. She revealed, “It makes me furious they didn’t detect it earlier. He sought every option and nothing was found.”
Apparently, Douglas had been steadily complaining about pain in his ear and throat. Catherine is incredibly surprised none of the doctors found anything then, because it was only three weeks later that a walnut-sized tumor was found under his tongue. And they were ready for the bad news, it seems. “It wasn’t a huge shock,” she added. “I knew something was up. He knew something was up.”
Douglas’ cancer is at stage four and has spread to his neck and parts of his head but he still has an incredibly positive attitude, telling David Letterman, “I’m treating this as a curable disease. It’s a fight. I’ll beat this.”
Zeta-Jones has understandably taken the news hard, telling People, “The hardest part is seeing his fatigue, because Michael isÃ‚Â never tired.” Our prayers are with both of them, and as Zeta-Jones also added, “if there’s anything Michael has, it’s strength.” Amen to that.
