UPDATE ON MEDICAL CONDITION OF COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF
Dear Judge Illston:
As my previous correspondence indicated, I am currently in treatment for a bleeding ulcer.
I am down about 30 pounds, extremely weak, unable to stand or walk for more than short periods, and suffering a great deal of gut pain.
Last week and because my condition was continuing to deteriorate, my doctor-Robin Serrahn, MD-admitted me to the hospital for emergency diagnostic tests. Both my stomach and colon were scoped and biopsied. My follow up appointment is not until the 21st.
My prescriptions were changed such that my antibiotic was discontinued and I was prescribed Protonix. According to the GI team which conducted the scoping and biopsy, I probably will not notice improvement for four to six weeks.
Finally, I am still taking Oxycodone for pain. Said is a heavy duty and disabling narcotic.
I must ask for a further continuance of the scheduling conference and defendants' 12(b)(3) motion. I hereby request a continuance of each for six (6) weeks.
The initial case management
I am taking a medical leave from all of my cases.
conference has been continued to
IT IS SO ORDERED
