Brother in the Hospital…Again
Communication in my family is weird at times.
After lunch today (I ate half of an eggplant sandwich to coat my stomach before dropping a couple of mandated cancer-fighting pills down my throat), I called my father to see how he was doing. In a fairly nonchalant way, he said that he just returned from visiting my brother in the hospital.
Oh, yes. My brother has been in the hospital since Monday. As many of you know, he's been battling some kind of intenstinal problem for a couple of years now. Apparently, on Monday he got rather bad pains in his abdominal area and he went to the hospital. My father wasn't too sure as to what caused my brother's hospitalization, but it is all centered in his colon.
And while in the hospital, my brother's doctors told him that he has high blood pressure (not a shock).
And possibly an irregular heartbeat (a surprise).
His doctor wants to keep him in the hospital for a couple of more days as they try to figure out an entire course of treatment for him. After my Ladies Aid Meeting at 1:30pm today, I will head on over to Yonkers, NY to visit him even though my father suggests that I should focus on my cancer fight and now worry about my brother.
Again, that communication thing.
