Update on Bill

Post by Tony V on Sat Jan 02, 2016 1:52 pm

I just wanted to let you know that Bill made it through his surgery ok and that it was a success. He also found out through blood work that several of the med's he was taking have damaged his kidney's so he's not a happy camper about that. Over all he is doing good and they have his pain under control. He was quite chatty on the phone last night so he's back to his old self already. He wants to thank you all for the thoughts and prayers and is looking forward to being back on the forum soon.

75 it was his kidneys and not his liver as originally thought. I talked with him this evening and he said his kidney's are now working and they took his catheder out but wont know how much damage the med's did until they do further tests. They haven't ruled out dialysis down the road if he has a relapse. He is scheduled to get out of the hospital tomorrow and into the rehab center to get him ready to go home in a few weeks. Overall he's doing better than he was a few days ago. Hopefully that will continue.

I just talked with Bill on the phone last night and he is making remarkable progress as far as his walking and hips. Unfortunately he has caught a bad cold and is miserable because of it. It isn't slowing him down as far as his therapy goes and he's determined to get out of the rehab on time. He thanks all of you for your concern, well wishes and prayers.

I just talked to Bill and he said he gets to go home this coming Monday. He's doing great with his therapy and is feeling good. He wants to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. He's ready to come home as you might imagine Very Happy

Thank you, all. I'm seeing the surgeon tomorrow to check on my new hip. It was really rough. My kidneys quit working, and, that had us all worried. God helped. They treated the hips with saline, and, slowly, they started working again. They watched my blood tests for all of the rest of the time I was in the nursing home. It was hard. A lot of hard therapy, drugs, etc... I never want another nursing home again. Also, if I can help it, no more operations.
Washed clothes this morning, while Diamond was going potty.
I picked her up yesterday/..


A lot of phone calls. I I made appointments, talk to therapists, I have a nurse coming today to give me wound care. After everything, the cellitis returned to my legs. I caught it fairly quickly, so, with two weeks of antibiotics, it died. However, the dead black skin remains. they did little to help that. I have a nurse coming today to treat it. It took a long time yesterday to get me loaded, go for an emergency shopping trip, and, pick up my dog, Diamond, who was thrilled to see me. All last night she kept kissing me...
It feels good to be home.

I got a lot of help from members of my church who helped to pay for the bill. I want to thank them very much for such love....
I got a cylinder phonograph junker Edison Gem in the mail which I plan on rebuilding.
I also got a Silvertone bakelite table radio with the candy cane dial that I am going to rebuild.
I'm very happy to be home.
God bless all of you.
Bill Cahill

Thanks. To top it off, I had them call one company to come out, and, they called another instead.. I called surgeon's office this morning, and, had them cancel the wrong company, and, get the out.
