Superman Never Was

 by John Frost
 Recently, I have been painfully reminded that I am no longer superman with respect to my health. I had developed pain in my right hip. Over a 30 degree range, the pain was disabling. It made rising from a chair and sitting down tedious. Once seated or standing up the pain was minimal. Walking was OK but stairs were a challenge. It turns out my partner at Merrill Lynch who had been fully vaccinated tested positive for COVID-19. Consequently, all employees were required to be tested before returning to the office. I was on my way to be tested. On my way to the car, I put too much pressure on my right leg going down the steps and I fell. I clunked my head and ribs on a metal table. I couldn’t get up and my 110 pound wife couldn’t help me. We put in an emergency call and the Deer Creek Rescue Team, sirens blaring, arrived within minutes. They got me up and began triage. My blood pressure was 70 over 50. They feared heart failure and called an ambulance. Two arrived within minutes. They carted me to my primary physicians Hospital of Record, St. Anthony’s Downtown. I arrived at the Emergency Rooms which had recently been renovated. By then, my BP was back up to normal. However, since I had clunked my head and ribs, a CT Scan was ordered. The head was clear but the abdominal scan revealed a different problem. It seems I had a massive infection and pancreatitis (swelling of the pancreas).

(At this point, let me recognize the outstanding professional service provided by the hospital in no part a reflection of the leadership provided by Ms. Tammy Powell, President, SSM Health, St. Anthony Hospital and Bone & Joint Hospital at St. Anthony.  She is The Journal Record Woman of the Year and well deserved.)  READ MORE
