Randy posted this to FaceBook just a couple minutes ago. Since it's on FB, I don't think he'll mind me copying it here. If he does, he can just give me a whuppin' in May, if not sooner. Here's what he reports:

***************​
5:20 p.m. EST Sunday

I just left Vanderbilt. I checked myself into the E R at 11 a m Saturday. Symptoms were cough and congestion for two weeks that I could not shake. Friday night I was chills set in and I now had abdominal discomfort with occasional sharp pain.

Saturday morning at 3:55 a m I had fever still spiking.

Next we arrived at the E R at 11 a m. They wanted to do blood work, urinalysis, and a chest X-ray

I thought it would be a urinary tract infection The sharp pains worried me because I had a five hour reconstructive / cancer procedure in 2013. I wanted to make sure something had not come loose.

The test so far proved inclusive. The Doc said a CT scan would be the next thing to look at. So around 4 p m I went for a CT. At 1:30 A M they move me up to the fifth floor (deluxe apartment in the sky). This morning a Doc came in at 9 o’clock and said Mr Dawson after looking at you med list and vitals , you are the healthiest 66 year old I have ever seen. He continued the scan gave us a definitive diagnosis that was easy to see
Diverticulitis.

After two days of I V meds I am on my way home typing this as we drive east on I-40 to my little piece of HEAVEN.
God is good.

Sorry Randy, I didn't get to post it to the board. Been running ragged redoing the bathroom floor and ceiling fan. Glad you'll be okay. Still praying for comfort.

Well the good news is you ain't gonna die yet. The bad news is you're going to be changing your whole diet. You are going to have to learn what you can and can't eat and seriously watch what and when you consume. All in all, it's great news!

Glad it can be treated....

It certainly could have been a lot worse,very happy this is fairly common and can be corrected without too much trouble.I think sunflower seeds and nuts should probably be avoided for sure.Prayers coming out to you Randy.
