Good Morning All,
We have some wonderful news from Tom McCarthy. Tom’s Dad, Big Tom, has been officially declared to be in remission for his Lung Cancer Treatment. The Doctors will continue to monitor Big Tom but it is definitely an improved prognosis. Tom’s Dad has been in our prayers over the last year and this news is very special about this good man. Tom and his Family thank you for your prayers and good thoughts. A prayer of thanks would not be remiss as life goes on.
Regarding Tom’S Mom, Katie,, your prayers are needed. As Tom says, She has been the rock this past year for his Dad and the Family. Tuesday morning upon waking up, Mrs. McCarthy was exhibiting confusion and difficulties with her speech, ultimately diagnosed with a stroke. After being transferred to Westchester Medical Center, a Thrombectomy was done to remove a Clot wherein they discovered another Clot, removing that as well. She was doing well and the next 24–72 hours would be telling as to what permanent damage, if any, remained. This morning I heard from Tom. His Mom is still in ICU and being closely monitored. Her speech and mobility are extremely limited (she has been able to say a few words and repeat some things back and she is unable to move the right side of her body). Mrs. McCarthy will be in ICU for a few more days at least before they can evaluate her for whatever Rehab and Long Term Care she may need. The Family are keeping up hope that she will rebound more over the next 48 to 72 hours as the Doctors say, the next four days are crucial for indicating what recovery will look like.
Please raise the volume for Mrs. McCarthy as we pary that her recovery is strong continues to improve. Please keep Tom, Big Tom, Tom’s Sister and the Family in your prayers during this difficjlt time. Once again, Tom and his Family thank you all for you prayers. Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
