Hey everyone, I'm sure most of you have heard that Caleb Reese has landed himself in the hospital. Silly man's got some weird stuff wrong with his abnormal lung (the left one). Most of us have been quite well aware that there was something abnormal about him, but did not expect that it had anything to do with his lung. We still believe that this is not all.
Now for the gritty details, Calebís left lung is abnormal and in fact he hasnít really used much of it his entire life. Well, to be specific he hasnít used the lower half of his left lung his entire life. For some reason, this abnormality has been causing a blood clot for quite some time now, and on Monday night in a fit of coughing rage, his lungs decided to expel part of that blood clot with a heap of fresh blood to keep it company on itís short trip to the outside world (staining his carpet in the process).
So he was rushed to Hoag Hospital in Newport, thanks to Neal Shelton, and admitted to the ER. He spent a few hours with ER docs and nurses scratching their heads. Then whisked us off to a lovely isolation room in the brand new Gross Womenís Pavillion. Interesting side note for this tour, Caleb was not only the first patient in the room he stayed in, he very well may have been the first male patient in the whole building.
The nurseís were quite nice, and some were kinda cute too. It wasnít until after the bronchioscopy, which is where they stick a tube with a lens on it down your throat, on Wednesday that we really knew what was going on. They finally took him off Isolation deciding that he definitely did not have Tuberculosis, and we no longer had to wear those stylish masks!
As a side note, Caleb does not have Health Insurance and whereas he will be applying for aid from the state, this little jaunt into Surgeryville will most likely total to several thousand $$'s. If you would like to help out, you can make a donation using the button below. Sorry, it's not tax deductible, didn't have time to go thru the government red tape.
Hope that helps.
