Yes! You have that right. I'm praying for you, too, Mayber.

Yes, it is hard to talk about, and hard for them to hear. It would be a good idea to put it in writing. Hugs and prayers!

I told my son today that if I started spitting up blood to let me go since there is nothing that any doctor can do for me and I don't think that he wanted to hear that but I do want him to know so that no one can tell him different.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I am going to try the exercise route but the cardiologist wants me to get the surgery that will cut out 90% of my stomach and I am not sure that I want to go that route. Don't know the ramification on that and what it will do to the body in the long run.

I hope there are dietary and exercise strategies that can help. Sounds pretty frustrating!

No he said that my heart was fine but there was pressure in my lungs that is higher than normal. Pulmonary hypertension is what he said it was and it seems deadly too. Read about it and about what meds that they might give but the side affects are worst than the problem and I have so many allergies to meds that most doctors are afraid to give me drugs for anything. I am not sure if I am willing to take them either since one of the affects is death.

Maybe your lungs are pressing on your heart? The cardiologist described something like that to Charles as a possible reason for his troubles. It turned out not to be, but maybe that is what you are experiencing. Did the doctor tell you a medical name for the condition? Does it cause you to be short of breath? Are there medicines that can help? Continuing prayers for you!

Well here is the verdict on my heart stuff, it seems that my heart vessels are ok but it is a little slow on pumping or he said that it pauses on the beat (have on idea what that means because he was talking all medical terms). He also said that my lungs have high blood pressure but I have a normal blood pressure. Go figure that one out emoticon

That is a bummer! I know what it is like to be without insurance. Have had several periods of time like that in recent years. It makes it impossible to really take care of yourself. Will pray for a solution.

Thank you and also pray for my son because he is worried about it too. His hernia is also getting bigger and he was denied health insurance from the ACA, so he can't get any insurance because he does not have a job but is going to college and Florida says that if you are in college that you can't even get medicaid either.

Glad that you are both doing well and will keep praying for you both.

Well had the echocardiogram done and now this week it will be the angioplasty on Wednesday, I will be at the hospital all day after they do the procedure at 10:30. I have to stay laying for six hours. Not sure how I am going to do that.

Charles is still doing well. He has been losing even more fluid weight and is back to getting some exercise.

I could use some prayers for me. I've been having a pretty severe attack of IBS this week. It is really dragging me down. Thanks!

Hope everyone else is doing okay. I keep you all in my prayers.

Well, that did not last. Charles is back in hospital. Needing prayer again! My sister is here this week, so that is helping me cope.

I also had a different kind of headache yesterday that involved a weird visual symptom. Please pray for me, too.

Thanks!

Doing ok will know what the cardiologist says on the 10th

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

He's still doing well! We took his brother, sister-in-law, and their grandson to supper. Had a great time. He has to move slowly, but he's moving!

Charles came home on Saturday. We were both really wiped out yesterday. But today he felt so good, we went to Walmart after his doctor appointment. Hoping he stays well for awhile! Thanks for prayers!

Not sure. It's a progressive disease, so he may just be at a point where he will have more trouble and need more medicine than he used to. They have kept him for another night at least.

Glad that Charles is getting better and yes they should of done things sooner too. That much weight gain is not good for the body either. Glad that he is home too.

Will be doing my blood work this week and then I will know something about if it is just a fluke or something more wrong

Charles is home. Yay! His legs are still pretty swollen, but he is feeling much better. They changed some medicines.

Yes, he weighs every day, and the results are electronically sent to the nurse that checks them. He also calls if it is above a certain amount (I think 3 or 4 pounds). The ER trip this past Wednesday was the fourth in a week. Don't know why they didn't do more sooner. Usually the weight gain is in smaller increments, and it sneaks up on him. The nurse was able to check back on the records and tell him that the gain was so high in such a short time. I think being able to tell the ER doctor that it was 26 pounds in two weeks finally prompted them to get more aggressive on treatment. We're hoping the new medicines will help keep it under control.

Thank you, everyone, for your concern and prayers. I really appreciate it!

Dorothy, I'm praying for your heart situation.

Had to take Charles back to the ER. They kept him this time, but probably only overnight. He had gained 26 pounds in fluids in two weeks, so that is why he has been feeling so bad. They are taking it off more aggressively now.

Dorothy, I will surely pray for you! If the thyroid problem is the most usual kind, it should be easily treatable with medication. It should give you more energy. I hope they get the heart situation under control quickly. That is pretty scary!

May God have mercy and bring you healing!
