Quick Update

Just got back from the hospital. Jim is still there in the heart center. He is still having very high BP. I just have no idea why or what ion the world is going on. Today seem to kind of drag with just trying some different meds and tonight the DR came in and out one after the other. So tomorrow he will be having a lot of new testing done and I hope so clear answers. Cause BP 225/155 is not going to be something that is okay. One concern is could the epidural caused some type of issue with his BP...so he will be having a new MRI tomorrow. Also a heart scan . And some other test on his kidneys. I know he will be okay . But I would like for it to be right now so I can just KNOW he will be okay. He just needs to be okay.

The appt this morning with the DR was rough. Hard. Blunt. And he just was not easy on me. He said what he thought. I listened. I said I was sorry. I told him I would not beg to stay in the program for Philip. I told him I thought he was the best DR for Philip. I told him that I never meant any sneaky awful behavior with the issue. I made a mistake and I was sorry. I then said. As I said I will not beg. I am asking for a second chance but if you want us out then I will understand and we will find a new DR. He said we would work on a new start. I must say..that in the end of this..I learned a lot and a lesson. Maybe this will make me a stronger advocate for Philip in the end.
There are some medical updates too. But I am going to hold off on those until we get some more info from the neurosurgeons. It is complicated and scary. And to be honest. I am so tired I just can not explain it tonight. I will just say that it is complex and I just am not sure there is a clear path. So I will pray. And I bet many of you will join me in praying for a clear answer for Philip and his DR.
I had my treatment. Long , hard and done. One more week done.
My mom got her a hr ago.
And I am going to need to spend tomorrow laying down more because I have had some set backs from my surgery and it is a clear sign of overdoing. Somehow my body does not understand the idea that ...I just gotta do this or that...and it has rebelled. I think it is going to win...

I will update tomorrow about Jim. I hope it is great news.

Hugs to all my wonderful supportive friends. Today I could FEEL the support. And today I needed it. Tomorrow is a new day and it will be a blessed one.

I hope a lot of people are Checking Before His Throne and praying for you guys. I am. I've prayed several times, and am glad to hear your update.

Now you need to rest. So glad your mom is there with you now. Mine helped me so much the other week.

Praying they get to the bottom of things with Jim today!

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I read your blog and sometimes feel like God is picking on you. I don't mean to make light of it.

I had a really good friend that died from Cancer about 2 years ago and we were talking about our lives and how hard they have been. Both of us had been through a lot and she said, "I wonder if we were the selfish ones in Heaven before we came here and God was asking who wanted what trials and which ones came with what blessings and we were the ones that wanted all of the blessings that came from the trials so we kept volunteering for the trials in order to receive the blessings." I don't know if that makes any sense at all, but it has always helped me make light of a situation when it seems as if there is no hope. So maybe the three of us were sitting there in heaven asking our Heavenly Father for all of our trials so we could receive the blessings that come from them.

I don't know why you are going though all that you are, but truly think of what an amazing, strong woman you have become because of it. God loves you, more than you can even imagine. And as hard as it is, he knows what you are going through and has a reason for it. I just think that God knows how amazing you are, and knows that you are strong enough, brave enough, patient enough and loving enough to endure this and bless so many people along the way!

Thank you for being such an inspiration to me!

Lisa said...

Hi Amy,
I will say prayers for Jim, I am sorry to have been MIA but my parents are not well and my dad has developed Alzhimers and it is pretty bad. I am thinking about you and still praying for you but I need to catch up on what's going on as I have been so busy with my life.

Aspiemom said...

I'm praying and anxiously watching for your update. I'm sorry that you've had setbacks - bad timing, huh? - but very glad your mom is there now.

When you can, let us know how Jim is doing.

Gran to Angels said...

Hi Amy! I'm praying for you all! Let me know how you are ok?

ixtapacheryl said...

All I can say is keep praying, hoping and don't worry! I know it sounds easy but believe me it's the only statement that has kept me sane this past year.

Hopefully they got to the bottom of Jim's blood pressure spike and he's ready to leave the hospital.

Just know that I am praying for you all.

Hugs dear Amy!! I know it's impossible, but try not to worry and rest as much as you can. You all are having a real rough patch right now but I know things will work out. Keep the faith and know you are being supported in prayer!!

Shannon said...

I'm anxious to hear about Jim, though not anywhere near as anxious as you of course. You've been on my mind and I just can't tell you enough what an inspiration you are to me. Through all this crap your faith is intact and strong, though tested I'm sure. I'm so thankful to have found your blog and to have a blog-friend like you!
