My Uncle has been going through lots. Helping my Auntie in this regard. My Auntie took Uncle to ER two years ago around this time (early Oct) because he was spitting up bright red blood. After hours in ER and battery of tests the Doctors could not diagnose. The bleeding stopped. However a CT scan during that time and CT scan 6 months later showed that a clot in lungs that was there during the ER has now disappeared. So his lung Dr said it's probably something that was stuck in his lung and came out. Fast forward to two years later. The year of Coronavirus. Few days ago my Uncle coughed up brown pglem in morning. I told Aunty that is likely old blood and somethin in lungs. Perhaps body is fighting off colds. Now he does more cardio and weight lifting so body may be able to fight better. This morning Aunty is on the phone frantic. As soon as Uncle took his morning medication with water (Synthroid if that makes a difference), he spit up a huge wad of brown pglem. He was terrified and asked Aunty what did he give her, what did he give her? ER is very uncomfortable and Coronavirus is making it worse. And Doctors always say go to ER to be on the safe side but their area has seen uptik in Coronavirus cases. How do I calm down my Aunty and Uncle?
