SURGEON'S KNIFE FOR ENGLISH
WILL BE OPERATED ON AT THE EAST BAY SANITARIUM.
William D. English, Vice-President and Manager of the Contra Costa Water Company, was this morning removed to the East Bay Sanitarium to undergo a second operation for appendicitis. He will be operated on tomorrow unless there is some decided change in his symptoms.
When Mr. English was operated on some months ago, it was found that the vermiform appendix had sloughed off. The surgeons searched for it as long as they dared to keep their patient on the operating table, but were finally compelled to close the wound without recovering it. They hoped it had become entirely decomposed and had passed off in the pus discharge. But the recent revival of the inflammation indicates that some of the diseased part still remains in the abdominal cavity and an operation is deemed necessary to ascertain the seat of the trouble and remove it.
Dr. D. D. Crowley, who has the case in charge, thinks Mr. English's chances of recovery are excellent notwithstanding his age, as his physical condition is materially better than when he underwent the first operation.
