Update

I will be able to update more tomorrow. We are having a consult with a surgeon tomorrow to move forward with surgery for Jim's back. The thought is that the BP could be caused because there was a bleed from one of the epidurals he had done to help with the disc issue he has been dealing with. He had one last Tuesday and the Tuesday before that. The new MRI had some serious issues on it compared to the one before it. Jim is now on three different meds and this is not doing a great job keeping his BP down. Jim has never had a BP issue before so I am hopeful that this is not going to be a ongoing issue once they can get the back cleared up.
He has been home on bed rest for 24 hrs and so far it has been really hard on him.
So tomorrow will be a big day. I will go into detail tomorrow but there is a hummm story with the Dr we are seeing...I know many of you will enjoy hearing the full story. There is a twist.
I have been sick as a dog..well you know what I mean after this last treatment. Thank Goodness my mom was here. I just have felt like I have had my butt kicked. My healing is slow from my operation ...but I will heal. Baby steps...
I am hopeful Jim can get his back worked on this week and that way he can work on healing ...cause my treatment day will be here again in a few days.
I do have a Philip update appt. It is long...in detail...and late. I am going to hold off and post about it tomorrow. if I do it tonight..I will think about it all night...and I have done nothing else for days..
So for now ...tomorrow is a BIG day for specialist for Jim to see if we can repair a bleed from the epidural and remove the disc....
I know I say this...But I have never meant it more...
I have never felt more support then I did these past few days. I just knew when I felt so bad and worn down that each of you were lifting my whole family up and we would all be okay....We are so Blessed By each of you...Thank You...

I'm reading your posts backwards. Just read about your special friend (Jill?) and now read your update from yesterday. I'm praying for you.

I'll be watching for your next update.
