Seventy-year-old John George was admitted to Mercy Hospital in November with a severe cough. Staff were initially concerned he might have tuberculosis, but happily he tested negative and is responding well to treatment.
“I was so much worse at home. I couldn’t walk by myself and after just a few steps I would be exhausted. I was coughing all day and all night. I couldn’t sleep because the coughing was so bad. I came to Mercy but honestly, I was hopeless that I would get better. But now I am so much better! I can walk, sleep and I am relieved from the coughing.”
