An Important Thing To Do

Yesterday we received the news that my wife Shirl's brother, David Kimball, just days shy of 70 years old, has been admitted to the hospital with blood clots in his lungs.  He awoke yesterday barely able to breathe.

I do not know much yet about Dave's condition, nor about its cause.  I do not know if he was able to drive himself to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) where he spent last night.  But after my 07:15 physical therapy appointment this morning, I called DHMC and learned that he is able to receive visitors all day, today.  DHMC is just over an hour from here by car, and I shall head over there, leaving in three minutes.

As an inpatient at HealthSouth in Concord for the month of September, 2016, I learned how important such visits can be.
