Some prayers for Ev

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

This is Bob, Ev's other half. We were getting ready to go to Gainesville for her appointment with her therapist when she tripped on the hose and feel on the cement in the carport. She hit so hard, her head bounced off the cement and hit a second time. She also landed on her side. She didn't answer me for some seconds so I think she may have been out. Before we could walk to the truck, she had two lumps on her head and her hip really hurt. After I helped her into the truck, I went back into the house and got a pain pill for her. It relieved her head pain, but not the hip. Her doctor and the attending that checks her each visit felt she should go to the hospital. They were concerned about two things. Her vision was off and she had trouble following the doctor's finger back and forth and up and down. She told him before the pain pill the pain was coming around into her right eye. They were also concerned about her hip and feel she may have fractured it. By now most of you know how stubborn she can be. She refused going to the hospital. She promised me if things weren't better tomorrow she would let me take her. She was also nauseous and was afraid to eat anything and kept a bag in her hands. I wouldn't let her go to sleep all afternoon.

I doubt she'll be around much these next few days. I'm suspecting she isn't going to feel much better tomorrow and we'll end up at the hospital. She really should have gone as soon as it happened but she thought it more important to see her therapist as he isn't going to be around very much longer. He's going into private practice. plus she only sees him every six weeks. She said she needed her meds and would have to see him before he could prescribe them for her.

She really needs all of the prayers and good thoughts you can send this way. I want to thank all of you for being her friends. Her doctor brought up her blog today and saw some of the responses to the entries. He mentioned he thought this was a close knit concerned community. Ev told him it doesn't get any better.

    Oh no! Bob, thank you for posting for Ev. I had that happen a few years ago and got carted off in the ambulance to have my head stitched up. It took quite a while to get over the concussion.

    I am worried about Ev since she has had the second fall. Has she had an MRI?

    Sometimes her stubborn streak stands her in good stead against some of the adversities she's faced - other times, she ought to listen to you and the other caring people in her life, lol... I know how it is: my husband and Ev could be twins! Prayers and all good thoughts in abundance, Bob - give her our love. I know you will. And keep us posted when you can, hon...

    I know Ev is stubborn, because she would not have made it this far if she was not. Sorry to hear of her fall, but she knows if she needs to be in the hospital or not. Unfortunately the Dr.s have to CYA and say you must go to there for tests. Ev see your Dr. that you like and talk it over with him. Then you will know what you need to do. In the meantime you are keeping a lot of people busy praying for your recovery and you know I will be one of them. Get better kiddo, you are still needed here. emoticon emoticon

    Yes, she will most definitely be in my prayers, but she SHOULD go to the hospital. This sounds very bad to me, and could be serious. If she doesn't get it looked at it could end up much worse for her. Please, PLEASE take her to that hospital right away.

    So sorry about your terrible accident, wishing and praying for all the best.

    Sorry to hear of Ev's accident and thanks for letting us know. I hope Ev does get to the hospital as these things need to get the 'all clear'. Even if everything is okay, at least it can put everyone's mind at rest. Sending prayers and big hugs!

    I am so sorry to hear this news. My prayers are sent her way. Tell her to take care of herself and you take care of yourself. You need each other.

    Oh no, I really, really hope she will go to the hospital to get checked out completely. This doesn't sound like anything to mess around with. Please give her my best and tell her she is in my thoughts and prayers. Also, thank you so much for letting us know.

    I am so sorry, so very sorry. And Bob, you are a very special person to connect to her friends this way. You may not be back to read this any time soon but if you are (or Ev), could I have her full name? You can send it via email here in SP. That way I can put her name in my temple prayer circle where hundreds of people per day pray. emoticon And I will also pray for her but please tell her, prayers will work much better if she does her part too and getting proper medical care is a way of showing our Father in Heaven that she is doing her part. Sending my love and prayers, Chelsea emoticon emoticon

    Oh my - I hope things turn around. I have also a piece of that stubborn streak and the feeling it can't be that bad when things happen to me. It's funny if the same happened to one of my kids I'd be all over them to get the proper treatment. Thank you for letting us know.

    Oh no, poor Ev! No one likes to go to the hospital and in her case, bet she is sick of them. But, a fall like that Is not sounding good at all! Please get her there ASAP, she needs treatment! Keep us posted and thanks Bob for letting us know. Hang in there and sending prayers and get well wishes.

    I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Ev in my Spark journey, but by Divine intervention, I'm sure, tonight I was led to this blog. My prayers are with you both. What a wonderful and supportive husband you are to post on behalf of Ev.

    I will keep Ev in my prayers.

    I hope her injuries are not too severe. Will send prayers her way. Make sure she takes it easy for a while, m'kay? And I really would continue to encourage her to get checked out at the hospital.

    I hope that everything turns out okay. It does sound like she has a concussion. Even if she is stubborn, you gave her a day, that means she needs to go tomorrow. Do not take no for an answer.

    We will all be thinking about and praying for you both!!!
    1929 days ago
    Yes she should of gone right away , probably has a concussion hope she's feeling better soon!
    1929 days ago
    Oh my word, that's a terrible thing for her to deal with. I hope she's willing to go to the hospital soon, as a head injury and a hip injury can go bad quickly. Please let her know we're thinking of her and hope she'll 'give in' and get checked out. We all want her as healthy as possible!

    Thanks, Bob, for letting us know. Please update again when you can.
