Vicrowe's Praises:


As you all know my son Tim saw a eye specialist yesterday about his eye. They did find a cyst behind his iris (it had not 'popped' out like his regular eye doctor thought).
They ran a slew of tests and did x-rays of the eye and the cyst was benign. There was no roots attached or anything else they could find either...They are going to use it as a teaching tool for the internist in the clinic...As long as he doesn't start having vision problems he will be fine. The worst case is he may need glasses but that we can live with! He goes back in one year to see the specialist. Thank you all so much for the prayers and the good thoughts. I really do love you all...Vickie

I haven't felt real well today - nothing specific, maybe slight reaction to medication. But my daughter-in-law, who I had sent an e-mail earlier saying I wasn't having a very good day, told my son he maybe should check on me before he went to bed. And so he called and talked to me for 30 minutes or so. He asked if I wanted to come stay at their house and I said that in the last hour I had began feeling better.

What a comfort to have someone care and to check on me!

Another praise: A wonderful Christian couple in the church asked several of us to their home for the noon meal after church yesterday. It was a delightful time, very casual, family like atmosphere. We need to do things like this more often.

As some of you know my mother was hospitalized this last weekend w/ bacterial pneumonia while visiting her grandkids. For awhile things were looking pretty grim, with her condition seeming to worsen. She had to be put on an O2 mask, her lungs were full of white blood cells and blood, and she was unconscious most of the time. Needless to say I've been sick with worry and have barely slept a wink all week. Then, yesterday when I called my father for an update, he said that her O2 levels were much better and the white blood cell count in her lungs was finally beginning to drop. I received another meassage from my father this morning that her condition is still gradually improving. A co-worker and close friend of my mothers has been calling me daily to check in and try to keep my spirits up, and when I gave her the latest update we both started crying with relief.

Thank you all again for the prayers, kind words, and support you've given my mother and I this week. I found quite a bit of solace and strength knowing that my mother was receiving positive healing energy from around the world.

Thank you dear friends. Your concern and support has been a tremendous help and source of comfort.

When my brother went into surgery yesterday we did not know if his foot would be amputated or not. He kept positive and continuously thankful he was alive at all (we all are). He has only asked for prayers and I had told him that my Sploofus friends from all over the world were praying for him. He asked that I thank you all.

After 6 hours of surgery we were there as he came to. He asked: "Do I still have a foot?" When his wife told him, yes, tears rolled down his face. Tears flowed in the entire room. He said, "It's a miracle."

It is. The doctors agree. I have seen pictures of his can't even tell it's a leg, as it was nearly severed and a good three inches of missing bones that were shattered. He now has a rod pinned in place below the knee to his heel and the beginning of "internal" reconstruction which will be followed by "external" reconstruction of tissue and skin. Doctors can do amazing things, but the miracle was his lack of infection and dead tissue in his foot due to lack of blood supply.

Paul said his miracle was due to everyone's prayers: "even people that don't know me all over the world were praying for me, that had to make an impression". He's a joker, my brother. Thanks to all of you again.

Sploofusers are wonderful people.

I'm putting this in both prayer and praise threads since the situation has changed:

Just talked to Consuelo, on her way out the door to go to the hospital. The news is not good and she's not in a good place about it, so she wanted me to let everyone know she's sorry but she's not up to posting yet until things are more settled.

Her brother's condition has deteriorated and there has been more dead tissue and two more surgeries to remove it, and he is going in again today; the doctors won't actually advise him what to do, but they're pressing him to sign the permission for the amputation before he goes under again. He's torn and still wants to fight to keep his foot but the family is not all in agreement so it's very difficult for everyone emotionally.

She sounds drained on the phone, exhausted from hours in the car and at the hospital (60 miles away) every day, plus her mother's ongoing medical problems are demanding on her time and strength as well.

She sends heartfelt thanks to everyone for all the kind thoughts and prayers, she deeply appreciates the support and we'll hear from her soon.

Hi, I am doing fine. The cancer is responding to my meds so no chemo right now. We are having a wet and cool summer....I am enjoying having my son home from school and I have been doing a bunch of reading so I am in heaven.

I appreciate all the prayers I can get. Every three months I have scans and as long as there are no changes there will be no chemo. So in September I will be getting nervous again. Take care, Cindy Jo
