no… this is not a practical joke! Phil is back in the ER! Randy & Shelly had to take him to the ER this evening because Phil’s legs got really swollen and started to ooze fluid. Randy said she had never seen anything like this before. The doctors from UNC Chapel Hill told her to take him to Carolinas Medical Center so that the doctors could try and determine what is going on. It is currently 9:30pm and they have been in the ER for several hours. They will be checking out his kidneys to rule out any kidney failure; they will do some doppler testing to see if he has a blood clot(s) in his legs. As soon as she knows anything, we will post it on our blog.
Phil is in his usual state of optimism and cheerfulness. He is a unique and special soul and wants so much to be healthy. He is an inspiration to us all. Please keep him in your prayers.
