    Docs are not infallible. One of my DIL was very sick for a month and just now diagnosed it as chicken pox. They need to get out of Kalif!

    Wilbur's Home! Happy Independence Day!

    Hi Friends!

    We brought Dad home from the hospital today and by all indications, he's certainly on the mend.

    We want to thank everyone again for all the nice thoughts and prayers.

    It's been a long day so he is getting some rest. I'm sure he'll catch up with everyone soon.

    Thanks again for all your support!

    Elmer

    Good to hear that Wilbur is home,I hope he recovers fast. I agree he is a fine man, I always enjoyed talking to him at the matches. Wilbur has done the shooting world a great service with this website, Thanks Wilbur and Elmer for your efforts and may good health be your reward.

    It took 7 days in the hospital until I was functional. I lost about 30 percent of each kidney. I recovered, but have to be careful.

    I said all of this to tell you that they determined my kidney failure was brought on by my taking Celebrex, a very common anti arthritis drug. For some reason, still unknown, it shut down my kidneys.

    Is there a possibility that Wilburís kidney problems are the result of a drug reaction?
    Everyone please be careful with meds, especially the newer, high power ones. A couple of years ago I was taking Cosyntex for arthritis. It perforated my colon and nearly killed me. Had to have half of it removed.
