Health for Tom
The sun rose over Tom and Carolyn Walker’s home in Gibsonia and glistened off the snowy roof. Tom struggled to stand up from his bed and start his day.
He didn’t have to pitch a major league baseball game that night or drive to begin a 12-hour work day. At 66, Tom was now poised to relish retirement, peppered with golf strokes, garden weeding, grandchildren’s birthday parties and 81 Pirates home games to see his son, Neil, protect second base with the Bucs.
But arthritis had different plans for Tom.
