    Default Gary Nesmith Is In Hospital

    Hello Alabeemers

    Gary Nesmith is having a rough time. He hasn't felt well since April and he went to the doctors several times before being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, but nothing prescribed helped. He is in hospital now.

    Here is a series of emails between Darlene and I that brings this sad news up to date:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi Darlene,
    I talked to Gary today when he was at Shelby waiting for an ambulance to take him to Brookwood. He also said the will have surgery to remove blood from his brain. Shocking to say the least. What can I do to help you and Gary?

    to me

    Bob. Got him admitted to Brookwood about 2:30. Did an ekg chest X-rays and blood work. Neurosurgeon came by and said he had the cat scan from Shelby and was going to look it over and take another tomorrow and compare

    Gary has his phone with him. I'm home with dogs. Visiting hours were over st 6:00

    Bob

    Gary's pretty much knocked out all day. He had an MRI and sonogram done today. He is on Ativan every 4 hours to keep him from getting agitated.
    Not slit of conversation going on. Still can't have any food or water

    Don't know how long he'll be in here before going to a room. He's where he needs to be for now

    Thanks for the post Bob. When we had lunch with Gary a couple of weeks ago I knew he was in some pain but this is a shock. Gary is in Carolyn’s and my thoughts and prayers.

    I hate to hear this. Please keep us posted. Sounds like there are a couple of issues going on but at least he is at a good facility to deal with these. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary and Darlene through this ordeal.

    Hi Bob

    They've taken Gary off Ativan and he a little more alert. Still sleeps quite a bit. Going to move him to a room tomorrow and started trying to get him mobile. Will have food for first time at lunch today.

    The Internist just left. Said according to the Neurosurgeon records they still don't know for sure about surgery yet just making sure that things get better before they make that decision
    Tom Binford was here earlier and so was Gary's son and daughter in law.

    Bob.

    He's is SICU 4th floor 4th bed on left. If he continues to improve like he has the last 24 hours I think tomorrow he'll be really awake

    What kind of surgery are they considering? My heart aches hearing all this.

    I re read the first quote about the surgery. Hope that isn't necessary. Praying every day for his recovery.
