Chuck Hinman attends, speaks at Veterans Day at Tallgrass
By Robert Stone
Here is a story about Chuck Hinman for his readers on ColumbiaMagazine. I have added parts of two previous messages from Paul to yesterday's email:
Chuck Hinman on 11-11-11: a health update from his sonHello everyone,
Yesterday Dad attended the Veteran's Ceremony downstairs in the dining room at Tallgrass. He spoke to the audience and explained to everyone his situation and thanked everyone for their prayers and concerns. It was a moving ceremony and Dad wouldn't have missed it for the world, even though he didn't feel so well.
Following the ceremony, Dad had an appointment with his primary care doctor. To make things brief, both the doctor and I agreed that since he needs more follow up care from other doctors since his stay in the hospital a couple of weeks ago, Dad will remain at Tallgrass for at least another month. He is much too fragile to move at this time and keeping his environment intact and familiar is the best choice for his well-being. As you know, I have employed sitters who watch over him on a twenty-four-hour basis and he has home health care five days a week. I am satisfied with the care he has now and so is Dad. He is in no pain, though he has been experiencing nausea quite a bit. Some days are better than others with respect to that and today he was resting in bed.
Again, thank you for your prayers for Dad and we love all of you so much.
Regards in Christ,
Saturday, November 12, 2011
Paul had written earlier: On Monday November 14 I will be transporting Dad to Tulsa to a facility near me, The Villages at Southern Hills. I only live two miles from The Villages and can be there within 15 minutes or so, even from work.
On November 4, Paul wrote:
I had to admit my Dad to the hospital for a kidney stone last week. The procedure went very well (laser procedure with stint applied). Dad has been through a 'ringer', to say the least and though he is one of many from the greatest generation of Americans (the WW II era) and a tough 1940's Nebraska farm boy, he is having quite a time with pain from that procedure.
