Wordless Wednesday

Okay...Not Wordless Wednesday.

This was taken before they took his back yesterday .

I will post a full update from yesterday . The DR and I had a long talk about what the next step would be. And also some info about the BIG next step. But things are rough right now with Philip..so until I have time..here is a quick update...

Things started okay with Philip after the procedure. But have turned bad. He has a severe headache and throwing up non stop.

I am not sure what the next step is. Wait it out. Try to do something...really there is not too much to do. He is on very strong meds for both. But for now. I am holding on to the knowledge that he did well yesterday for the first stage. And we will see what we need to do to help with this complication.
I just hate it for him. He has been through so much. I just so want him to be okay.

Jim worked yesterday...with his job the way it is...he needed to do what we needed him to do..and that is keep his job. I went alone yet I KNEW I was not alone. I want to tell each of you..I FELT the prayers and support yesterday.

Oh, Amy...you and Philip have been on my mind so much! I was telling my husband yesterday that I'd met the most amazing blogger whom I now call my friend...that person is YOU!

I'm sorry to hear that Philip is having such a difficult time. I will pray that his doctors can do something...ANYTHING...to help him out and ease his suffering. Praying that God will give you strength and peace of mind...GOD BLESS! Big hugs!

I have been reading through your blog the last twenty minutes or so. Wow. You really have a lot on your shoulders. I am sending prayers and happy thoughts to you and your family! Hang in there!

Gosh you two look good and from the smile on Philip's face you'd never know he was in such pain.

Hold on to your faith - hopefully he will be feeling much better today. Throwing up is no fun. Maybe that was caused by the anesthesia.

Prayers are continuing for all of you.

I posted on the CB page, but I just have to ask...Are you sure you are sick, Amy, because you are looking GOOD! Actually, I hate it when people tell me "well, you LOOK good!" so maybe I shouldn't say that. But you look really pretty in the picture!

Amy B said...

I am "sick" but you know what...I made myself get up and made myself get ready because facing the day looking "put together" means I can fake being together...and yesterday I had to be together. Notice there are never weekend pictures..Ha
Did ya get all that? LOL
Hugs my friend.

I hope his belly feels better. There's nothing worse than trying to recover while throwing up. I'm thinking of you two today!

Amy, in my never ending quest to find something new to share with you regarding your situation, I saw it on a sign in front of the church on the way home. This may be something you have heard before, but it said "You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present, by worrying about the future." Some very good words for all of us to remember.

I hope Philip feels better soon, and I am so glad to hear from Jim. I'm sorry he couldn't be with you and Philip yesterday, but I'm glad he is able to be back at work.

My thoughts and prayers are with Phillip.

I am praying for you and Phillip. I cannot imagine the weight of what you are going through. I know God is giving you the strenght but imagine it doesn't feel like it. praying.

Charmaine said...

Praying that Phillips pain and nausea goes away soon. Glad that Jim was able to work...that is good news...you look so good for all you are going through. Hang on to the promise that God will bring you through anything if you hang on to him and believe in him.
Hugs
