Hey everybody, this is George having to re-learn how to type again! Update on the fluid situation. The left side “ascites” (an accumulation of fluid (serous fluid) in the peritoneal cavity, causing abdominal swelling) was scanned and drained although it did take quite some time. It actually can be anywhere in the abdomen, it was just more dominate on the left. A total of approx. 2.7 liters were drawn off. There was more to get, but due to location it was considered more of a risk. More fluid was seen around the left lung, but we knew about that. I can say it is a relief to lie down now. My lower back and center of the spine is still very sensitive, especially while in a vehicle, but if I can get in a fairly comfortable position, I tell the driver to ‘drive on’!.
Then I’ll get to the Dr.s office and get comfortable until they call … and so it goes until I get back home.
I am still fighting the big “H” throughout the day. That is a challenge of another kind. But all things big and small must be handled by faith. I am also battling fatigue, so when you pray, well, I guess when the healing comes there will be no more fatigue!!! Praise God.
Sorry it’s so short, but I need to get horizontal as I used to say. Love you all! Really. Thanks for all of the prayer support and other support to me and mine.
Please continue to pray for DR. Hackler, Robin's cousin Barbara, Mark Johnson, Kayla Smith (gunshot wound victim) and my Dad's friend Ronny M. (boat explosion). Thanks
