Hospital


Another rush to the hospital early Monday morning with Tom.

He had been sick all over the weekend with pains in his stomach and by early Monday morning it was clear that I should call an ambulance.

It appears that he has a 2cm gall stone that has decided to take a walk to where it should not be and cause a blockage so that the food is not leaving the stomach.
No wonder he was in so much pain etc.

After being unsuccessful in trying to put the dreaded camera down his throat he had a the usual scans etc and it has been decided that he will need an operation to remove this beast.

We are all a bit jittery about this as he has the lung and heart problems that mean an operation is not simple but I'm sure they have operated on people like this before and know what they are doing.

So, after lying there since Monday with tubes everywhere we are still waiting for the op to take place.  Maybe today or tomorrow.

I'm will refrain from posting for a bit until this is settled as I'm sure you will understand that my days are full with visiting etc.

Your good thought would be welcome for a good recovery for poor Tom who seems to have had it all flung at him just lately.

  20. I am the Prayer Lady at church, and I am PRAYING! I had mine removed years ago, and they can usually do it with a little camera, no big incision. It is called laparoscopic. But no matter how they do it, these big stone blockages are more common than you think, so I believe he will be fine. Let us know whenever you can...

  25. Damn! It's so hard to deal when someone you love is in pain. Try to look after yourself, so you can look after Tom when he's home from the surgery. My heart is with you and Tom, and do remember that modern medicine can do amazing things. The pain and anxiety is no fun, but the outcome is likely to be good.
