A Small Medical Update
When Gorman called our Internal Medicine doc today, they wanted to see him rather than just calling in a prescription. So we went to Mobile; he talked with Gorman about symptoms and thought he just has a bad cold and he was hesitant to give him antibiotics; however, when he listened to my chest, he gave me a second round of antibiotics, plus Prednizone. He said the bronchitis they have been seeing is the worst in 10 years. Those of you who really know Gorman can imagine the fun he has been having with me all afternoon, such as “Thanks so much for accompanying me to the doctor so that you could get some drugs”. He’s so cute.
And yesterday I forgot to share some very good news: Gorman’s white blood count is back in the normal range. For some time now the folks at UAB have been watching this with concern but the labs on Friday showed the best reading in many months. Thank you, dear Lord.
