Tom's brain surgery

Greetings to all.

I think it was about the night of the 18th that Tom had a bad headache and vomited his supper. We did not go to church the next day. Tom slept all day and then again that night. The days following he had severe headaches and more vomiting. He seemed to be a bit better but on the 23rd we tried to see our primary doctor. He had just returned from vacation and was all booked up. We were told to call the next day to see if there was a cancellation.. There was the next afternoon. The doctor checked Tom over pretty well, had a sample of blood taken and gave him containers for a stool specimen. He said he would probably get the results on Monday, the 27th. We called him before 5 since he had not called us. He said the results had come but he had not had time to look them over. He said he would that night. The next day the nurse said they wanted to redo those 2 tests. It showed his iron was slightly low and to go buy some supplement that had iron in it. He was to come get another container for another stool test. However, Dad’s headaches were not improving and our nurse neighbor wanted to ask some other questions and went with me to pick up the container. Tom was going to go but he just kept falling asleep in his chair and was not washed or dressed, so we went without him. The nurse went with me to the doctor’s when I went for the container. I said I wanted to speak with the nurse so I could ask some questions. She finally said, “Just take him to the ER.” So we went home, threw a few things for Tom in a bag, took him in his bathrobe and slippers to the ER about 5:30 that evening. That was Wed. the 29th.

Palmers' Progress June 2015

It is good to be Home Sweet Home again after 10 days in the local hospital. Now, we apologize that some of you have not heard about our latest health episode, so, I, Tom will review for everyone from the start. We praise the Lord for reasonably good health for our octogenarian years. All glory to Him. However, recently I was having problems with digestion and elimination so I went to our GE doctor for his help and begged for whatever checkup or test he could give me. There seemed to be some blockage. He decided to do the the full colonoscopy, even though the last one was only 3 years ago.
