In case you missed our last two newsletters, ApX guitarist Tom Tincha was hospitalized two weeks ago for serious abdominal problems. For more details on that, you can read this story:
He was released last week, and you can read the details about that here:
Here are the latest updates:
From Tom's wife, Deborah on Friday night, February 11:
"A peak into Tom's home recovery: Tom had his last IV and oral antibiotics today. He was happy to get the midline out of his arm. He's still experiencing nausea, headaches, getting lightheaded, and he's very tired.
"Both doctors earlier this week said he had a very serious infection and they want him home for at least another week so there is not a reoccurrence of infection. They will reevaluate how's he's feeling/doing at the end of the week. He is scheduled for more blood work and a diagnostic colonoscopy to make sure the hole in his colon wall has closed up.
"Tom has been binge-watching some oldies but goodies, The Andy Griffith Show and Gunsmoke. as well as resting and sleeping a lot. He's also bored, because he's not one to sit too long.
"Thank you to all the prayer warriors for your continued prayers for Tom's complete healing as well as God's grace, strength, provision, and peace to pour out upon us both in Jesus mighty name! Healing is the children's bread! The joy of the Lord is our strength! He will not forsake the righteous! Amen and Praise God."
From Tom himself on Saturday, February 12:
"I was hoping to start working on Monday, but that has changed. My doctor wants me to take off an additional week and reevaluate how I'm doing/feeling at the end of the week. They don't want me to relapse and have another reoccurrence of infection.
"Both doctors this week said I had a very serious infection, so they are monitoring my recovery. I had my final dose of IV and oral antibiotics yesterday, but I've been feeling very tired, nauseous, and lightheaded. So it is best I'm still home from work, as I am not myself yet."
Please join us as we keep praying for Tom and Deborah. Thank you!
We also have a brief update on ApX bass player Keith Haynie, who was hospitalized in early December with his own abdominal problems, which ultimately turned out to be the result of a congenital condition.
Keith's surgery, which will include the removal of a small part of his intestine and his appendix, has been moved up from March 14 to February 21.
ApX lead singer J. Jackson saw Keith in church on Super Bowl Sunday, February 13, and talked with him afterward. "Keith is in good spirits and played with the worship team this morning," J. says.
"He seems to be feeling OK, but I think he's glad the surgery date got moved up so he can get it over and done with, although he plans to record bass parts for another ApX song or two before the operation.
"I know he's planning to watch the Super Bowl. He was asking various people in our congregation what team they wanted to win. One of the older ladies said, 'The Steelers,' and Keith shot me a knowing glance, grinned, and told her he hoped what she wanted came true."
