The details are good because we can pray for specifics instead of general. Praying you can get that appt and that they have wonderful ideas to help ease Bobs pain. You are a good wife!

So very sorry for the not-so-good day and asking the Lord to encourage your heart in ways that only He can.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Ann and Bob. May you be strengthened, helped and comforted by the Lord's great love.

The neurologist is working with a neurosurgeon to review the new and old CT scans, to determine if this is a surgical problem. Our neurosurgeon moved out of state last month, so that has complicated decision making. She has ruled out some other serious problems and believes Bob will recover from this. For one of the prescriptions, there was a snafu between the office and the pharmacy and of course with it being the weekend, that probably won't be corrected until Monday. But we have enough to last through Monday evening.

I appreciate the prayers more than I can express to you. I appreciate having this forum to communicate my worry and desire for help. I forget the entire concept of handing serious issues over to our God, when we have done all we can do. It is a lesson, like patience, that I really have not learned in a permanent way.

Please pray for Bob's comfort and recovery.

Ann, sweetie, you are not alone in learning that lesson. Waiting on the Lord is difficult for me as well and honestly do not think that I will ever arrive at the 'permanent' station. Grateful to the Lord for His loving grace when I fall so short. God understands and you have many people here who are praying for you and Bob.

I agree, it's an ongoing lesson for me as well...I KNOW it, but yet when it comes down to it I still tend to worry things to death. *sigh* Plus in the heat of the moment I can even forget the concept. *sigh* Continued prayers for you both.

Today we gave away the antique armoire to a good home. They came and picked it up and so we are thankful, the people were very appreciative. I did not want to pay to have it taken away. So, while we could not get any money for it, I feel like it all turned out well and so just thankful to the Lord, that He was still in on all the details.

I almost hate posting this, as we are all praying for Ann and Bob and this seems like a trivial thing, but just wanted to post.

How wonderful Shirl! It is always a good feeling to have something taking care of and removed from the stress of our lives.

Ann, I have been praying. I hope things look up soon.

Reynold continues to be in pain in his hip/leg/foot and barely able to walk. He will be going to the orthopedic office tomorrow. This is taking its toll on both of us because he cannot do much of anything so it falls on me to do the necessary stuff. Grateful for God's grace to be able to do what I can. Thanks for your prayers.

I apologize for monopolizing this thread. There is no excuse for me doing that.

Things are about the same. Pain is better controlled much of the time, but the side effects are unpleasant. We are waiting on 2 consults.

Ann, there is no need to apologize. You and Bob are going through a critical time needing all the prayer and encouragement you can get. We are here to reach out, pray and encourage. It also helps me get off focusing on my own troubles and think of others so again no need to apologize.

Caterina, I'm praying for a breakthrough for Reynold as he sees the orthopedic doctor tomorrow ... may the Lord grant the doctor great insight. Praying for continued grace and strength for both of you.

Ann, please don't ever think you are posting too often ... as Caterina has said ... we are here for one another to pray, encourage and comfort. May the Lord also grant a breakthrough for Bob and cover you both with His strength and grace.

Caterina, my MIL used to say " I'm so tired today and don't feel able to do anything." So I told her that was her cue to rest that day and continue to rest until she feels she CAN do something. Sometimes she would feel better the next day and able to do some things, but other days it would takes days for her to feel up to anything. Continuing to pray for you both, and for Ann and Bob. Ann, there are times I have lots of requests, so don't feel bad. I'm still struggling with some issues yet to be finished. Hurts just to think about it, so I pray that my prayer warriors here continue in prayer for my family.

Be assured, Kathy, that I continue to pray for your entire family (including your parents).

Ann, adding my agreement to everyone else's that you are in no way monopolizing the thread. It is exactly what Caterina said and Caterina you said it so well.

Ann - I think many of us have felt that we have been monopolizing, but if we need the prayers - that is all that matters. It helps to pray for others even if someone is going through a tough time themselves. So thankful our Lord hears all of those prayers.

Caterina - am praying that the doctor will find options for Reynold that will work!

I had to reschedule my appointment today because I was coughing so much this morning. There was no way I was going to spread my germs in an oncologist's office. Thankfully, there was an opening on Friday - otherwise I would have had to wait until mid January!

I forgot to comment on Kathy's statement about PT. My insurance does cover PT but I HATE going. I know that I am going to need a knee replacement probably sooner rather than later, I am putting it off as long as possible JUST because of the PT. I hate going. I feel as if it totally messes up my day (not that I usually have a lot going on). It works, but I would much rather do stuff at home!\

Seeing each person's request, even if daily, helps me remember to say a prayer. Please keep posting if nothing else, to jog my memory. Joanne, glad you were able to reschedule your appointment. Keeping your germs at home is a good thing to do. I know other patients are thankful.

Caterina, you are worn out. I pray that Reynold will get good help at his appointment and you will get a bit of rest.

Still praying Ann. Please keep reminding me by posting.

I always like PT as it is helpful for me, but totally understand about paying each visit. I just paid my November (or maybe it was October) bill for my PT. I am going for pelvic floor therapy and she is giving me exercises to help strengthen my core along with those pelvic muscles. I was so worn out on Friday, but it felt good.

I am slowly working on getting my Christmas cards mailed. I sent several today and now need to finish the insides so I can get labels printed and more sent. It will happen by Christmas, but I seem to be a bit slower this year. I think I am busier with my PT, my daughters counseling and other appointments as they pop up. Speaking of appointments, I have my Mammogram scheduled for early Thursday morning. I hope the machine is not too cold. My appointment is for 7:40 AM and we are having cold days. Blessings everyone!
