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.

Amy, thanks so much for keeping everyone up to date on Jim, I can understand the reluctance to see the results of the surgery, I had a near fatal car wreck in ‘03 and I got a glimpse of my already-ugly mug in the mirror, with a fresh dose of ugly, it’s hard to deal with, and Jim?

It’s ok to take all the time you want, what you feel able to deal with on any given day is not dependent on anybody’s schedule, it only depends on what you feel like doing, as little or as much as you please.

We’re all just glad that you are who you are, a man among men, someone who has resolve and determination, someone we love and respect under all conditions and in any situation.

Most of us have come to know you because of FR, but what we feel for you goes way *beyond* FR, we are all members of a grand extended family, not all of us always get along with each other, but that’s the nature of families. But the glue holding us together in this family?

That’s you Jim, you are ‘Dad’ to many more people than you will ever know, of that I am sure, and we love you.

Rest well now, hope you enjoy your dinner, and tomorrow you’ll be one day closer to getting out of there and heading home.

G’nite, the Lord IS with you! :)

MKJ
