Hi girls -

Just a quick note to remind you all that my brother's surgery to remove the tumor on his pituitary gland - which is resting on his carotid artery - is in the morning (Friday). This surgery has been postponed quite a few different times for various reasons, but it's finally happening. Please keep him in your prayers, okay? :) Thank you! I'll definitely keep you posted!

Hugs and blessings -

Thank you SO much, Terri!

Well, my Mom just called... He's still in surgery. The information up on the board says he is anticipated to be out of surgery at 2:30, so we're hoping it won't be too much longer. I spoke with my sister earlier - who lives out near Denver - and she agrees with me that being so far away is miserable, but we know it's always the waiting that is the hardest. The doctor had told him that if it was an "nice, clean" surgery where the tumor was in a neat little ball, it would be pretty easy to remove and that he'd be out in about four hours, but if it was more complicated, where the doctor would have to "peel" the tumor away in layers like an onion, that it could take as long as up to 6:30 PM tonight. Well, the four hour mark passed at 11:30, so... My sister is really, really upset, but my Mom sounded very good, which was very encouraging to me (My Mom is just really good like that!). My sister-in-law is doing very well, very much at peace with all of this, as her faith is very, very strong like my brother's. Thankfully some of their close friends are able to be there, so there are six of them waiting together and passing the time playing games and easing each other's minds. It's such a hard thing to have to wait, but hopefully we'll know more soon. I'll keep you all posted, I promise. Thank you so much for your prayers.

Hugs - Nini

Thank you SO much, girls!

Good news! He's in recovery - all went beautifully - the doctor got it all - no more treatment - overnight in ICU - tomorrow should be in a regular room - he should be home Sunday in time for the Superbowl, which he's thrilled about (BIG Ravens fan!). :) They can't see him for another hour, but they are looking forward to it. Mom says as soon as she gets home she'll be sleeping for the next 20 hours. LOL! I think I will, too.

So, for now, I guess this means the Acromegaly is "cured." Although all the changes he has undergone cannot be reversed, the removal of the tumor will end any more progress of the disease. Praise God! My baby brother is going to be okay! Thank God for my foster daughter, God bless her, who recognized the symptoms and urged him to go see the doctor last summer. God is good, He is so good, and merciful and really does work behind the scenes on our behalf, working all things together for the good of those who love Him! Praised be His Holy Name forever and ever! AMEN!

Oh, I'm just so relieved. Thanks so much for your prayers. I'll let you know if there's anything else to report. Right now, I'm going to take a nap - I need it! LOL!

Hugs -

Nini....I am so happy for your brother and thank our loving God for all he has done.

I have a bit of concern about myself and am needing to feel all of your arms and prayer wrapped around me. I have been really sick this last week and had to go into the ER, I could not breathe very good. So they got me breathing better and wanted to take an xray of my lungs. The nurse called me today and said they found a small spot that looked like a small nodule, but they need a cat scan. We don't have insurance so we would have to make payments of the CT or wait for 6 months and take another xray to see if anything has changed. I am needing Gods guidiance on this one. I am going to go talk to my Doc. and see what he thinks and go from there. I know God is in charge of all things and I have handed this over to him, but only being human it pops in my mind ever so often and you know what happens then. Girls help me be strong please.

Thanky you all so much for your faith.

Sorry to hear about your illness. God will either heal you miraculously or he will provide the money. Maybe we can help if you send us your address?

Hi Nini \I am so glad they got it all and he is going to be well, Praise God for that, I hope you are doing well too!
Netty,I will put you in my prayers that it is not a nodule, and that God finds a way for you to be able to see the doctor.

Terri I myself think that is a good idea, so email us your address Netty and who ever wants to can get back to you or or just send something to help.

Please let me know what is going to be done.
Hugs and Blessings you all.
love darlene

Thanks Darlene, you are a good Farmgirl Friend.
Netty is the one I wanted to help by getting her address. I guess I could email her separately from her member profile. Sorry I didn't make that clear, I am still a learning newbie. Nini you are still in our prayers.
God bless all of you who are prayer warriors.

Nini - so glad everything is going well with your brother
Netty - sending prayers

I too have been sick. It's been snowing all day, so I am actually resting in bed today (other than this peek at the computer right now).

With all the whirlwinds at my house, I have been reluctant to post much.

Girls....reading your posts brought tears to my eyes about helping me out, but as we all know how God operates, He always loves to suprise us.

I called my Doc. and told him about my xray and that the other Doc. was wanting to do a CT scan on my lungs due to finding a possible nodule. Wellll my Doc. looked at my last xray and he said it was there last time and it is nothing and not to worry about it. So what do you think about that. Praise be to God.

Thank you also for the prayers, it always feels good when you know someone is praying for you.

Netty - I'm just reading about this now. I'm so sorry that you're having to deal with such a worrisome health situation - especially without health coverage. Years ago, my husband had been hurt at work and we temporarily lost our insurance coverage. I well remember worrying over something as simple as my little boy getting the sniffles - it was hard knowing what to do. I can't imagine what it must be like hearing that you have a nodule, and then having one doctor want to pursue it further and your usual doctor telling you not to worry about it. My goodness - how can you NOT be concerned? Just to be safe and to have more peace of mind, I am wondering if maybe your regular doctor could take a look at the xray that the other doctor had taken and see if there had been any change in the nodule as compared to any prior xrays taken? If they all seem to be the same and there is no change, maybe your doctor is right and there is really no need to pursue it any further right now. And even if he assures you that there has been no change between xrays, maybe he could give you a better idea as to what it might actually be (I.e. Could it be harmless scar tissue or possibly something of more concern? And, would blood work possibly help clarify the situation?). Also, if he feels the situation warrants, perhaps your doctor could plan to monitor the nodule on a regular basis - maybe a new xray and bloodwork every year or so, just to give you peace of mind. I'm very happy that he said he feels it's nothing to worry about, truly! I just think it's always better to be safe than sorry. Please continue to pray about it and ask the Lord to lead you in everything - I will, too, definitely...we ALL will, I'm sure!

Big hugs -

Nini

Yes Netty,
I am glad your doctor talked to you also but I agree with what Nini is saying also. A double check is a good thing to do, that way you can be sure. I am praying for you to find the right answer. Love and blessings to you.

Darlene,
I am now concerned that I do have the flu. I have all the symptoms. I now have a fever.

Netty, your update was good news. Yay!

I had the upper respiratory infection type of flu and it lasted 3 weeks. I didn't feel that bad but I had laryngitis and was coughing the whole time, especially at night. All you can do is treat the symptoms.
Chicken soup
cough syrup
allergy medicine
Tylenol, Motrin or ??
Drink lots of fluids and get lots of sleep.
Another thing that really helped me was wearing a knit hat to bed to keep my head warm. You might want to wear it all day.
Sorry for those who aren't feeling well. Get better soon.

Thanks ladies.
I am actually out of bed today (don't tell my dd "Nurse Hilda") and washing my pj's and bedding. The sun is out and yesterday I didn't have the energy to do laundry.
I did make a tea from my garden Thyme, and it really helped with relieving and breaking up junk in my lungs and breaking up the mucus. I am a true believer of immunity oils and homemade ginger ale and hot tea.
I finished my braided rag rug too (photo on my blog today).

Thanks for praying.
Hugs!

Hi Kristina,
Glad you are feeling better. Your Ginger Ale and tea sounds really good. I tried some Ginger tea yesterday and it was really good. Good for your stomach also.
I am going to check out your braided rug.
Hope you are 100% soon.
Bless you,
Terri

I'm really glad you're feeling better today, too, Kristina! :) LOVE the rug! Absolutely LOVE it!!! Kudos to you! Excellent job! I would love to know how to make homemade Ginger Ale! That's the only pop I really buy anymore - and keep it in storage for "emergencies" when we're sick! I bet homemade is wonderful!!! Also - just wondering - what type of immunity oils do you use? Just wondering because one of my friends just got into that, and I know nothing about it! :)

Darlene - I was so sorry to read about your kitty in your other post/strain. SO sad. I am praying for you, sister!

My brother emailed this morning. He's doing better. Still feels very weak, but that is to be expected. He hasn't had to take pain medicine in two days! SUCH a blessing! He said their main concern is that his pituitary still works properly, and they will be monitoring that over the next few weeks. He sounded pretty chipper in his email. I'm so thankful and relieved! Thank you all so very much for your prayers!!!

Hugs -
