Subject: RE: BS: Curmudgeon's Latest Adventure
Just got a call from Tom's day nurse. Doctor was there, but I think only kvetched about not seeing it reported anywhere if Tom his his head when he slipped. (He didn't.) Evidently the doctor failed to address Tom's condition since Saturday. His nurse said that after the doctor left, Tom's labs came in -- he's anemic and his white count is somewhat elevated (so there may be an infection after all) -- and they're sending him to Wentworth-Douglass Emergency Room.
I'm about to call Tom's primary care doctor again and alert him (and his very competent nurse). Maybe THEN we can get this set-back corrected and get Tom on the road to recovery.
I'll be going over to Wentworth-Douglass in about an hour.
