Prayer request

Saturday, December 10, 2011

Without going into a lot of detail,

I am asking for prayer for our son Daniel and his E.O.D. group.
For their safety and to come home on time. They are all
stressed out and exhausted...........it is time to rotate them
home....They have been over there a full 365 days.

I will post when I get any news.

Thanks my friends,
Darlene

  You bet you've got my prayers. I'm so glad to hear your son is coming home. I wish we could bring them all home. If you need help contacting the Patriot Guard in your area for his homecoming, let me know! He deserves a hero's welcome.

My stepson is in Afghanistan driving a fuel truck. Last week an IED hit the truck directly next to him and his was flipped and caught fire. He's okay, but I don't ever want to see that look on my husbands face again. (At first we couldn't get specifics about what happened, it took another day to know for sure.) As much as hubby says he'd love his son to make it a career and retire from the Marines, I'm glad the kid isn't going to re-up. I don't think hubby sees what it does to him the way I do. (I know, that's selfish, but I don't care.)

If I could make one wish this season, it's for all our sons and daughters to come home. Take care of THIS country instead of putting ourselves in harms way for people who don't appreciate it. And I'd love to see Arlington turned into a park and not ever need another space for a gravestone. As pretty as those wreaths were this past weekend, I'd rather they not be needed. At all.

    Darlene, oh how my heart aches for you right now. I do understand COMPLETELY although my son has only been there for 6 months so far. God promises us that He will never give us more than we can handle and He also promises that He has plans for us, plans to help us, not to hurt us. I cling to those scriptures like they are life preservers.

I will definitely be praying for your son and his team members to be home soon, safe and sound. And I'll be praying for your "mother's heart" to be filled with the quiet comfort of the Holy Spirit. Hugs!

Thank you

Thursday, September 29, 2011

A big thank you to all the friends who have popped in to post on the blogs.
David is home and resting at the moment. Probably have to sit on him to
totally get him to rest, but at least he is here. Last night was a little rough
due to the coughing but that phase is done.....
We shall go to bed early tonight, before the sidewalks are even rolled up
downtown. LOL

I am so sleepy right now, but afraid to lie down or I won't sleep later..

Mainly wanted to say thank you to each of you who posted. As I read them,
I thought .............how blessed am I....to have all of you.

Blessings,
Darlene

Update on David

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

It is just now 10 pm and I just walked in the door. I wanted to tell you all who
have been praying, that David came thru surgery very well. He did not get to go
in as early as scheduled because of a lack of beds in ICU but one opened up and
he got in. His upper incision is larger than anticipated, due to the thickness of the
GB, and he must have been having problems for a lot longer than he knew.
He is doing well, might surprise you to know he has taken no pain meds because
he detests feeling groggy/foggy/whatever.

I was down there all day but he insisted I come home and get some sleep, so I am
here, but wanted to let you know your prayers before the throne worked, and if
all goes well he will be home tomorrow.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without my friends here, I'd be alone.
Please dont think I'll ever forget and if you need me to pray and petition God for
you, you only need to ask.

Blessings, and thank you,
Darlene

Husband health issues

Thursday, September 08, 2011

For those of you who know/or don't, David has been having issues for about 3 weeks
with his blood pressure running too high. Optimum is 120/80, which would be wonderful,
but at the drs. office he was 177/104, so his cardiologist ordered him to take 2 of one
of his morning pills, after a week, it still was in the 157/95 or 92 etc...pulse running
in the mid to upper 70's...so his cardiologist ordered another pill added to his repertoire
to take pm. Yesterday I took the copy of his 10 day record of BP and pulse readings in,
this morning they called and added a new morning pill in addition to the other pills.

It goes without saying that he does not like this. So he had the copy of his sonogram
from last week faxed up to his surgeon, and we see her on Monday about his GallBladder.
It is a laproscopic procedure, but since he would have to be under anesthesia, I am so
uncomfortable with this ........... he has had his heart stress test last week also, but it just
is scary with all his other issues.

The surgeon seems to think if he gets the gallbladder out, his bp will go back to its
regular reading..........we shall find out more about this on Monday.

Keep him in your prayers....
Blessings ya'll,
Darlene

    Sorry about your hubby's BP issues. Hope the surgery does make it better. If not it would be better for his health to take diet and life-style measures as much as possible to deal with the BP than to live on ever-increasing medications.

I lived on BP meds for probably 25 years and had serious consequences from them. About a year ago my doctor took me off them and I have had to do it with diet and life-style ever since, and most of the time I do very well at keeping it down - even as low as 108/68. Nice. It can be done, but it does require a virtually totally natural foods life-style.

Hoping your hubby is OK, and the surgery does him well.

    Hope all is well with you & your husband. I was diagnosed with hbp but refused pills until I did some long haul travel & got some from my GP as I feared deep vein thrombosis. Needless to say after a blood test it was discovered my blood sugar was up so I went off the pills, had another blood test & wasn't called back for the results. On the other hand with your husband with his gall bladder playing up then pills would be the safest bet. However, blood pressure pills often have serious after affects which is why I have decided on leading a healthy life of good food and exercise. I wish you both well & look forward to hearing how your husband's health has improved emoticon

    Hey girl! Big Hugs! I have some words of encouragement for you on the BP issue. As you may or may not know I have been going through issues with my high blood pressure for months and trying new meds out that didn't work to bring it down. In April I had my gallbladder removed laproscopically and of course my BP was through the roof in the pre-op room and the nurse called the doctor and ordered me a valium and my BP came down and I did great through the surgery. Go ahead and ask your doc for something for his nerves before surgery it sure did help me. Being in pain can send your blood pressure through the roof anyway.
Praying for David and for you to come through this surgery with flying colors and that his BP stays down after the surgery! Oh and if David has sleep apnea bring his machine with you in case they need it when he goes to sleep. They had to send my husband after mine so I could have it when I woke up from surgery. Sorry that he is going through all this! emoticon emoticon

    Darlene,

I am so scared for you. This reminds me of when my husband had 4 heart attacks in one week. Travis is only 25! My grandmother had her gallblatter removed, and she is doing fine now. Its a very scary thing, I know. I will be praying for you and your husband, and sending you positive thoughts. Please let us know if there is anything that you need during this time. I mean anything! We are all here with you, to help you and support you during this time. Please feel free to privately email me, anytime and I will be there for you. Even by phone if need be. God made us women strong so that we could be there when the men need us. So try to be strong during this time. I know its hard, but I know that you can do this.. Just pray and know that God has got you both in his hands.

"Sweet Father, Darlene and David are having a rough time right now. David is going to have to have surgery to get his blood pressure down. I ask that you bless them during this time of their lives. Father I ask that you hold them both close to you, and let them know that you have the situation under control. Father I ask that you give Darlene some extra strength during this time. I ask that you give her some rest and peace with this situation. Father, give her and David the wisdom that they need to go through this situation. Father guide them, and be there with them,. Father, thank You for the good times and the bad. Please let this fix the problem. Please bless David's health so that after the surgery his body will bounce back to normal, so that he can stop taking all of his meds. Father you are the great healer so we know that you can do this. Father, please bless them. In Jesus' sacred and awesome name Amen."

I hope that you don't mind the prayer, being typed here. However this is what I prayed for you. I want you to know that God is the greatest healer in the universe. He can heal anything and anybody. I do hope that David feels better, and is able to get healthy. You should ask him to join Sparkpeople as well, and do it as a family. I know that eating correctly and exercising could help with his blood pressure as well. My grandfather as well as husband both have heart issues. I am attempting to get Travis setup here on Sparkpeople as well. So he can learn to eat healthy and exercise to get his BP down to normal.

As I said earlier, we are here for you. In every way possible, we are here. Don't be afraid to reach out if it gets worse. Don't be afraid to ask people to email you or to chat with you, as we all understand that this is a trying time for you. We are here, I can't stress that enough. You are part of the Spark Family. So take care, and try to smile today. It'll help you feel better. :)

Hugs,

Hope

  You and David are in my paryers. Since stress and pain cause the heart to react, the gall bladder could be affecting David's blood pressure.

    emoticonHave him get that gallbladder out, since the procedure now is fast and simple. I had mine out 2 years ago & they had me come in at 6 a.m. and I went home at 1 P.M. Did it through the navel and now I can't even find the other "scares." I had two GOLF BALL size stones, so I certainly needed it out.
Have him do Atkins diet and get down any excess weight if that is an issue for him.

    Hope things get better. Has he changed his diet? Does he exercise? Lost weight? I switched to low carb and lowered my LDL cholesterol along with exercising. And my blood pressure is perfect. Just a thought.

    I've been praying for you both. The gall bladder operation is quite simple now. I had mine removed earlier, maybe 1995, and was back to work really fast. For someone with other health problems it might be a different story but we have the "great physician" guiding the doctors and he never fails us. Not everyone is healed but He goes through it with us and we can lean on him and ask him to guide the proceedure and give the doctors wisdom in his treatment..God bless you both~

    Darlene, I was sent to you thru a friend. I will keep you and your dear husband in my thoughts and prayers. I myself just went thru something similar with my boyfriend last week. His blood pressure was low 80/40 and was put in the iCU. We were their for 8 days. His gallbladder and pancreas was imflamed. It was very scary. I so understand what you are feeling. Sending healing thoughts your way.

    The surgeon is right. The stress of the gallbladder issues could be raising his blood pressure. I will hold you in my thoughts, and send healing energy to your husband.

hi Darlene;

I will be praying for your husband David and you. I had my gallbladder out and so did my husband both with high blood pressure and it went really well. God will do his will with him. God bless you always. Stay strong and healthy so you can help David.

    Caz sent me your way. Wishing your husband well. My husband had his gallbladder removed by keyhole in April. The procedure was very straightforward with no complications and he improved straight away from that. He has other problems but not related to the gallbladder now as far as we know. emoticon emoticon
