Here's the latest update on ApX guitarist Tom Tincha, who was hospitalized in late January with serious abdominal problems. His wife, Deborah, posted the following on Facebook on Friday:
"Tom had the diagnostic colonoscopy yesterday. He has diverticulosis throughout his colon now, which is more than just the one area the doctor saw a few years ago. But no diverticulitis, no cancer, no bleeding, which is all great. Praise JESUS!
"He will need to watch his diet, and the doctor said it's good I'm giving him a low-dose iron supplement, because he's showing up low iron/anemia, which is rare in men. So now that Tom has had an endoscopy and diagnostic colonoscopy, and they are not seeing any internal bleeding or issues, they want to give him a pill which will have a camera in it to see inside his entire digestive system.
"The camera will take a series of pictures as it makes it way through his entire digestive system. He'll have some sort of device that he'll wear that will capture the pictures as the camera makes its way through his body.
"He came home yesterday, and was tired and out of it from the anesthesia but doing good. He was on the sofa sleeping and resting the rest of the day. He was looking forward to being able to finally eat again, so I made him organic meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes and roasted green beans. Needless to say, he was a happy Tommy Boy!
"Thank you so much to everyone who has been praying for Tom and me and checking up on us! We so appreciate you all! Please continue to pray that they find no internal bleeding and his iron levels come back up to where they should be in Jesus' name."
