Kevin and i went to see him this eve. They put a shunt or whatever they call it this morning. At least they don't have to keep sticking needles in his arm now.
He is running over 102 fever and feels terrible. He is so sick..he can't eat or even get Ensure down. Only water. I saw his dad go from 175 pounds to 80 pounds. that is all I can think of when he pushes his food aside...John is pretty good size..not an ounce of fat. He is about 200 and 6'2" tall.
Monday we will know more about all this..
Thank you all for your Prayers..they are needed so much now..again.
Love to all of you

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

Dearest Marge,

Oh Marge I'm so sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are definetly sent your way.
I know how you must be struggling with grief and concern at the same time. I totally empathize with you. As you know my mom died in Jan. 2004 from cancer and then we were faced with dad having a stroke in October 2004 and finally a massive one in July 2005. I just couldn't believe I was being hit with 2 major things so closely together. I still can't believe I came through it all because there were times when I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide.
What got me through is knowing there is a reason for everything and even though I didn't know and still don't know....why God made me experience these two things.... I will know when its my time to join them.
What kept me going too was the love and support of my loved ones and friends and knowing that God never gives us more than we an handle.
So please try to find your way with dealing with this that will benefit you. And know that we are all here for you whenever you need us. We love you Marge and we're all here to help you in anyway we can!

ditto, SizzlinIn------so many prayers are with you, Marge
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Marge, I'm so sorry you are having to face so many tough trials in your life. It is so hard and you can feel singled out. God won't put more on you than you can handle, but I remember thinking I can't take much more. About 4 years ago, my trials started with my father-in-law passing, 6 months later, my dad passed, 6 months after that my mom, and another several months after that I had to put my dog to sleep. It was not a fun time for me and I certainly understand your plight. I am praying for you dear, and if you ever need to talk or vent, you have a great family here!!!

Marge, I am absolutely speechless. Take care of yourself so you'll be able to help your son and I will continue with my prayers.

This is so sad.

Dear Marge, I can't find the words to say how sorry I am to read your news. I hope that the news from the hospital on Monday will be in your favour.
Best wishes to you and your family.

Dear Marge,
Even though I don't know you I feel the fear in your message. I will be praying for your son and the rest of your family. I don't know why troubles seems to come in like tidal waves but please do not let go of hope... or your faith to get you through whatever lies ahead.

I'm so sorry to hear this Marge. You and your family are in my thoughts and I hope things are on the up and up for you very soon.
