I have kept somewhat in touch with Gordy/Les over the months since he went off the forum herein, he is dealing with serious level of PCa fighting. He had some recent issues and did not want to post and sent an email to me and Tony. He said we could post this.
At 3 AM on Saturday, March 5 I was rushed to local hospital with uncontrollable shaking. I only remember waking up in emergency room. After 3 days with WBC of 30,000 they finally came up with: pneumonia caused by tear in colon due to radiation for Pca. The thinking is that fecal material traveled to my lung from the tear. After 3 days they finally called in a surgeon who saw me at 10 AM one morning and said they had to operate immediately. I was in operating room by 2 PM. I now have colostomy. I believe if it weren't for that surgeon and his partner, I wouldn't be here to write this. So much for a local "Regional Medical Center".
If you feel my "story" could be of help to others, feel free to post it. I don't want to have to keep responding to posts, nor do....t. You two are the only ones I'm notifying.
Be well Guys.
Keep Gordy in your hearts, minds and hope...I can or Tony can relay whom responded to this thread I think that would be a nice thing to do. He is lucky he survived this set back as he stated.
