OH Bar-bar, your plate is indeed very full. I'm praying that the doctors will find answers for John.
Please take care of yourself too as you take care of all that need you. It will not be good for your health to go down hill, I know how your back is, and I know that you put everyone else first. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but just remember that you need rest and nourishment too. Don't forget to take care of my friend Barbar too, ok? We all love you.

Posts: 13,149 heart goes out to you...I am praying for John's fast recovery and that the Lord grants you the strength to handle all HE has given you....I have a feeling that the back pains are coming from his kidney problems...I had recuring back pains on the right side for quite some time before my kidney procedure. and chest pains hopefully are from the strain his kidneys are putting on his heart and they will also go when the kidneys are fixed....both of my kidneys are operating on 50 %..and the right one had the blocked arteries in it which didn't allow the blood to flow through...since my hospital stay all the back pains, stomach pains, flatuence and high blood pressure have left my body...and I pray that this will also happen with John...know that he is is good hands with Jesus and the hospital staff and his doctors..they will help him in every way available...and before you know it he will be home and you can both get on with your lives and enjoy your grandbaby....My love, hugs and prayers to you both, my friend....

my prayers are also with all my fc friends and their loved ones who are in need of prayers at this time....

"You will be forever missed Margaret..."

Barb, I'm so sorry to hear of John's latest trouble. Keep your chin up, Hon, we are all praying for his swift recovery.
I'm glad to hear you're getting your DGD. Is this the one you call "Red"? It's good for you and her that she'll be staying with you.

Margaret, sounds like you've been through the ringer. Hang in there, Dear, we love you and are putting you and bar_bar and John in our prayers.

Gotta run, Happy New Year. Hope it's a good one for all.


We learn lessons in the school of suffering
that we can learn in no other way.

bar bar.. I hope they are taking good care of you as well as of John.. YOu are both in my prayers.

Has John had a surgical consult? The first thing I though of when I heard you describe his symptoms was a dissecting aortic aneurysm .. the symptoms you describe are classic..

I hope whatever the diagnisis .. that he is doing better now.

I'm sorry Ive been away for so many weeks.. there has been a lot going on.. One day at a time.. right?

Praying for a healthy safe and prosperous new year for all

Val, Bar_bar's DH had surgery this past summer for an aneurism. I believe it was in his back or abdominal area, IIRC....apparently the surgery was very dangerous and it was 50/50 that he would survive it.
I hope things are OK with Bar_bar & her DH right now. Haven't heard in 24+ hours....

Friends are like windows through which you see out into the world and back into yourself... If you don't have friends you see much less than you otherwise might.

Tutterbear, I am asking God to keep his hands upon this mother and tiny baby.
Also, that you husband will have strength and ease from any pain. I also ask God to strengthen and comfort your heart. I know this is hard for you. Hugs..

I called Barbar, but no answer. Just wanted to let her know I love her and am praying for her and John. I will post if I hear any news from her.

Grandchildren are Gods way of compensating us for growing old.
