A.G. McLean, age 51, had been experiencing pneumonia and was on his third round of antibiotics. He was admitted to a local hospital where they discovered his EKG and certain enzymes were alarming. He was a heart attack waiting to happen. At this time he was transferred to a larger hospital where he was diagnosed with Silent Ischemia. A.G. had been suffering heart attacks for years without realizing it. The pneumonia had actually been congestive heart failure. On July 21, 2014, he underwent triple bypass heart surgery. People with angina, previous heart attacks or diabetes are especially at risk for developing Silent Ischemia. Having an exercise stress test or wearing a Holter monitor are two tests often used to diagnose this disease. Please discuss Silent Ischemia with your doctor!!
Nathan is 18 years old and graduated from Riley County High School in 2014. He had been experiencing pain all the way down his leg. This past Thanksgiving break, he had surgery for a tumor on the base of his spine. It was supposed to be a fairly textbook procedure and almost always these tumors are benign. This tumor was notbenign and not like any the doctor had seen before. They were able to take part of the tumor out, but a large part of it was tangled up in the nerves at the base of Nathan’s spine. It was then confirmed that Nathan had a rare bone cancer of children and adolescents called Ewing’s Sarcoma. The good news was that his cancer was localized and had not spread. It is still a complicated case since it’s rare and the tumor is entangled in the nerves. However, this type of cancer is responsive to chemo and radiation. Nathan started chemo in December and will be traveling to Kansas City for several months. Nathan’s college career at the University of Kansas is being put on hold for now. He is studying in Political Science.
