Prayers for Jim Robinson
May 14, 2008

Posted on 05/14/2008 5:16:40 PM PDT by trussell

 

Prayer Request

Jim Robinson is having surgery tomorrow, May 15th

See the posts below for information about this procedure.

Jim Update:

It has been a frustrating day, I finally have a update for everyone.

I called Jim at the hospital. The nurse was in his room and gave him the phone. Sheila took his cell phone to him so I will be able to contact him easier. Also they took his laptop.

Due to major pain killers, he was able to sleep in the bed last night and was in bed when I called.

He sounded better than he has for the past few months.
He will be there for at least one more night; maybe more depending on decisions being made tonight.

They may remove Jim's left leg at the knee tomorrow. The docs have told him that the poison in that leg is going to continue causing problems.

Jim is really reluctant to let them remove the leg but I told him that if it will relieve the pain and stop all the damage it is doing to his internal organs, he should let them take it. Jim cannot use his legs now. He only has limited use of his right leg and no muscle remains in his left leg. The muscular dystrophy has done a number on his muscles while he has been ill.

I hope this makes sense.

When I hear what the decision is, I will let you know. In the meantime, Jim needs our prayers tonight and tomorrow.

Father, hear our prayers.

*********************************

Thanks for all the updates, Amy

I just talked to Chris and he said that Notpoliticallycorewrecked is visiting with Jim at this time.

He also said that the Doctors have decided that tomorrow Jim has to make the decision about his leg

The Doctors believe, as you stated, that it has to be removed to keep the infection from spreading.

So I imagine that is the decision he will make.

Don't worry about him getting online, he has an “air” card so he can get online anywhere.

He misses being able to read and post here tremendously naturally. This is his baby.

Good news that the swelling has gone down dramatically in his left leg and that for the first time in months he is not in pain 24 hrs a day and was able to sleep more than usual.

Chris had no idea how long he would be hospitalized, but I would imagine it will be several more days, especially if the operation on his leg is done soon.

Good advice you gave Jim, Amy.

Yes, Mama Bear don't hesitate to visit, it will be highly appreciated and encouraging to see such good friends as you and that jk I'm sure

Jim is blessed indeed to have family that are watching over him closely and taking care of his needs, getting him to the hospital and other numerous tasks

And the legion here that are pulling for him.

****************************************

Today's short update:

I just talked to Jim; the surgery will be performed tomorrow. He doesn't know what time yet. He said he is feeling pretty good. Also, he slept off and on last night. May have been due to the stress.

I am going to try to see him this afternoon. He has some tests scheduled but he doesn't think they will take very long.

He is not allowed to have his laptop in the patient area so he cannot get online until he can get down to the lobby.

His words ..... "Please tell everyone how much I appreciate their thoughts and prayers. Oh Yeah ..... tell them I'll be back online as soon as I'm able.


Anyway, thank you for your prayers.

Heartfelt prayers up in bluestate Connecticut from LurkedLongEnough and leadpencil. Thinking of you and family, Jim, may God bless.

“...Man will not merely endure. He will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.”

Probably smart though- you’d never rest:)

God is with you every moment. Many, many people are praying for you, your family and your medical team.

God bless you, Jim.

I know Jim pretty well, and he’s a tough old coot. He’s not a complainer in the least.

He deals well with what life has dealt him, far better than most of probably would have.

He might complain if they had to cut off his fingers and he could no longer type. But I’d bet he’d figure a way around that.

I pray for his recovery, but I don’t know that I need to pray for his strength. He’s always had that.

Jim, you have my continued prays.

While I haven’t always agreed with you, I see you as a good man trying to make a difference...so you need to fight through all of this and heal....a ton of folks need you.

On May 4th, one year ago, doctors cut into my chest and removed a sack that was restricting my heart. I also needed a triple bypass. They could only do one bypass, due to poor veins in my legs. I had a stroke effecting my left side during surgery and I contracted MRSA. They cut into my chest 4 times...my entire body was ravaged.

What was supposed to be an 8 to 10 day stay in the hospital, turned out to be 2 long months, followed up with being homebound for another 3 months with nurses showing up 4 times a week. I lost over 100 pounds during my stay in the hospital and came home with a tube in my gut for feeding and a pic in my arm for antibiotics and blood draws. I have since had another bout with MRSA, but again, the power of prayer and, well, my never give up attitude won this battle too.

It is not like me to ask others to pray for me, but on this occasion I did and I believe that those prayers helped to get God to assist the doctors that were working on me. The folks that prayed for me were mostly strangers and represented churches from 5 different denominations in the area where I live.

While I continue to be less than I want to be, I do continue to mend both physically and in spirit. So far, I am 6 1/2 months past my “pull date”. ;>)

Jim, if I can make it through what was tossed at me, I know that you can. I will pray for you until I read that you are well again.

Jim has his laptop in the room, but he is not allowed to use it, except downstairs in one area. So Jim will be online once he is allowed downstairs. That should be in a few day.
