    103 fever can't pee, they think it is a urinary infection.

    Of course he's loving it. ;; not really

    he has a catheter in and the fever is down some, been a long day.

    Urinary track infections can really be hard on certain age groups, luckily they are treatable. Give Tom my best wishes.

    Tell Tom to taxi in close. I think he will get the reference and hopefully, it will put a smile on his face.

    Thinking of tom and hoping he gets sprung soon.

    No fun at all. But at least he didn't pull a Tycho Brahe...

    Tell him to quit screwing around and get better.

    I must really bite when a master healer like Tom has to submit to the care of an entirely different type of "mechanic."

    It has been said that "...you can't kill a man born to hang." Tom's bad-ass, and we're looking forward to learning more from him.

    Get well quickly!

    Mrs. Steingar went through the same thing. I now know what delirious with fever really means. She was in hospital for a week. Good luck.

    Tom..


    I just witnessed this with my mother in law.. She is recovered now. My one suggestion is keep a close eye out for any signs of infection If you have any sign get medical attention right away. Don't try to tough it out and ignore any symptoms.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery!
