April 2000


Today I had to take my wife, June, to the emergency room for stomach pains. She was admitted to the hospital. On 4/2 they removed a 3 inch section of intestine that had been trapped in a hernia in the belly wall. The hernia was the result of major abdominal surgery she had 25 years ago that never healed right. The main problem was she was allergic to the suture material, and it abscessed. The surgeon was unable to repair the hernia because they still use the same material for patching hernias. She was released on 4/9, still very sore, but able to walk, a little.


Georgia Sue McClellan finally responded today with a short message and seemingly questioning the data I sent her. I sent her additional information. (note 5/9: She has never responded again.)
