The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 66 - July 26th Reports
A Mother, a driver, a prisoner, a driver, a sufferer, and a masquerader -- it's TROME
‘Iredell County Emergency Communications officials are calling Jameson Whitman, a 9-year-old, and Greyson Whitman, a 7-year-old, heroes after the brothers called 911 after their mom had a medical emergency earlier this month.’ [Emphasis added]
‘Casey Whitman, their mom, was in the kitchen cooking when Jameson noticed “she fell and looked like she was asleep and not waking up.”’ [Emphasis added]
‘He remained calm, dialed 911 and was able to describe his mom’s symptoms and provide other valuable information to telecommunicators.’
Great, so what happened?
‘Casey faced different health challenges in February, which she thinks may be related to what happened on July 18 when she became unconscious.
“I’m very appreciative. I have been going through stuff all year. We aren’t sure if that’s connected or not,” Casey said. “I’m still here.”’ [Emphasis added]
What kind of stuff?
‘Police are investigating a car crash that damaged a utility pole on the south end of Lansing Tuesday night.’ [Emphasis added]
‘According to the Lansing Police Department, calls were sent in about a red Toyota SUV that was “out of control.”
It hit a parked car on Miller Road before turning onto Washington Avenue, knocked out at least three mailboxes and crashed into a utility pole.
Police say it appears the driver was having a medical emergency.
Injuries from the crash were minor, and nobody else was hurt.’ [Emphasis added]
‘A 42-year-old woman died at the George W. Hill Correctional Facility on June 16, making it the third death to occur at the county prison this year.’’
[The] the medical examiner’s office did complete a full autopsy.
“The results are not available to us at this time,” Williams said. “They are still pending toxicology … So, we do not have a cause or manner.”
The warden said the chief forensic medical investigator said the toxicology report would take six to eight weeks. She said more information would be released as it becomes available.’ [Emphasis added]
‘Highway 17 was closed just south of Jacksonville in Onslow County on Wednesday after a single car accident brought down power lines.
Onslow County deputies said the accident happened before noon Wednesday when a driver had what they called a possible medical emergency while they were driving on High Hill Road.
“The truck that had ran the stop sign continued on,” said Stg. John Edwards with North Carolina Highway Patrol. “It ran off of Highway 17 and hit a light pole bringing down several wires across all lanes.”’ [Emphasis added]
‘Deputies said the driver did not stop at the stop sign at Hwy 17 and High Hill Road, crossed Hwy 17 and left the road on the other side before crashing into a power pole and overturning in the woods.’ [Emphasis added]
I guess now we know what’s in High Hill.
Sorry about that.
‘A spokesperson for Humberside Police said: “Despite the efforts of emergency services, the man has now died.’
‘“His death is not being treated as suspicious.
“We would appeal to anybody who witnessed the incident or came to the aid of the man to contact us on our non-emergency number 101 quoting 139 of 26 July.”’
I don’t know. These medical papers crop up from time to time. I’ve been hearing a lot about this IgG4 fella. And here he is masquerading around, lol.
I’m just including this for the curious, like myself. I don’t try to take too much from these papers. I can follow some general ideas in most serious medical papers I’ve come across, but in all cases some bits are beyond me. I had to Google “fistula” to even figure out what this paper was about. One word of advice in that regard: if you Google “fistula,” be specific as to which type.
Anyway, read on if you wish. I don’t try to read too much into these papers, sure — but then, multi-organ autoimmune attacks that result in growths and fibrotic, hardened tissue sounds like it could cause symptoms that would baffle the hell out of someone that’s not looking for it.
Anyway, here’s a side note. Some interesting information.
‘Patients with IgG4-related disease are frequently misdiagnosed as having malignancies due to the resemblance of the lesions to infections or other immune-mediated diseases and certain tumors, such as pancreatic cancer and pseudo-renal pelvis tumor.’
‘Prompt identification of IgG4-related disease is essential as a delayed diagnosis until advanced stages can result in severe organ damage and potentially fatal outcomes, despite the disease being highly responsive to treatment.’
‘IgG4-related disease is known to impact multiple organ systems, with it commonly associated with type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis and IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis.’
‘IgG4-RD has an undefined etiology, with some studies reporting a genetic association between patients with specific HLA and non-HLA subtypes being at a higher risk . Other studies have also mentioned an association with exposure to certain solvents, oils, and dust particles in IgG4-related diseases of pancreatitis and cholangitis . Patients presenting with retroperitoneal fibrosis have an associated risk factor of tobacco and asbestos exposure . The patient presented in this report has a history of tobacco intake. ’
‘IgG4-RD has frequently been shown to cause dense fibrosis in the affected tissues, such as eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis, which presents with nasal obstructive symptoms . Conversely, the disease is also recorded to present with the development of a cholecystocutaneous fistula . This highlights the need to differentiate between possible diagnoses of fistulas in patients with an unremarkable medical history.’
‘In conclusion, IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an immune-mediated fibroinflammatory condition that affects multiple organs and is characterized by a wide range of clinical presentations and diagnostic challenges. Patients typically experience a gradual emergence of an organ-specific mass or enlargement of the affected organ. This condition predominantly affects middle-aged and elderly males but can also occur in females, and pediatric cases have been observed.’ [Emphasis added]
We keep hearing about “undiagnosed cardiomyopathy,” wherein the heart is enlarged. They always blame the condition the same way they came up with “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.” Remember that? Anybody talk about that anymore? That crock.
Well, I overhear TV shows regularly, and as far as I can tell, they are inserting quite a lot of “sudden medical events” into plot lines. I saw a cartoon the other day where the villain died instantly during the chase. They’re creating a home in people’s brains where these sudden deaths can live in and feel comfortable in. We need to take that real estate back.
‘The prognosis of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) varies depending on the organs involved and the timeliness of diagnosis and treatment. Early identification and proper management can lead to positive outcomes, including improved organ function and quality of life. However, it is important to note that some patients may experience relapses or irreversible organ damage, emphasizing the significance of long-term monitoring and follow-up care.’
