Br. Edward has been moved to the Hospice Nursing Home on Cork Street in Winchester as a transition from his twelve days in the hospital to a return home at the Abbey.
He is on a course of antibiotics and physical therapy; his digestive problems are connected with a hiatal hernia he has suffered with for years. Surgery would be the normal solution but his age rules that out.
At the moment, Br. Ed told the Abbot that he’s not up to visits. His hearing is diminished and speaking is difficult. He is resting better at this unit than in the hospital and is responding to the care. He has asked the community for our prayers and is keeping us all in his prayers. Please continue to pray for him.
