Reginald Alexander Medical Fund

On September 10th, 2017 Reginald "Red" "Reggie" Alexander was admitted to St. Luke’s Methodist hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with a diagnosis of pancreatitis. Upon admittance, he was given an estimated hospital stay of three days, currently today, September 25th, 2017 he currently still an inpatient. 

The Details:

 The diagnosis of pancreatitis has a standard treatment of fasting and IV fluids to be given to give the pancreas a chance to recover.  Pancreatitis is inflammation in the pancreas.  The pancreas produces enzymes that help digestion and hormones that help regulate the way your body processes sugar.  A tube was placed in the nose and down into the stomach to help with removing the overproduced secretions.  During this time, he also had several lab tests that came back abnormal, diminished kidney function, trouble with regulating blood pressure and constant hiccups for three day's straight. 

 

We are currently going on week three of Reggie being in the hospital, he still does not have a specific discharge date, if he does go home he will need to having a feeding tube and will be unable to work for a lengthy amount of time.
