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.

I think 2 or 3 days is too soon.

There will be a phsyical therapist coming to the house and I guess the nurse will continue coming every day for awhile. I’m not sure how often he will get physical therapy.

I'm getting slower by the day. This is all news to me - shocking news!

God bless you, Jim, and may the Lord bless and comfort you during the healing process.

Thanks again, Amy!

Prayers are entering a new phase for Jim, now. The rehabilation will take some time, I would guess. Just getting use to this new situation is one thing and then there is how to handle himself physically. Mental and physical adjustments! I hope the VA is there with guidance.

I’ve been wondering about making a special donation at the next Freepathon, rather than flowers ——————

One would think that the hospital would be the one place where a ladies’ man could go to away from all of the demands of being a sex symbol. And even then, Melanie and Ann still found him!

Seriously: I’m so glad to read all of the good news about our conservative and family values hero.

Lifting more prayers so that more can be answered....

Wonderful afternoon report...thanks.

I hope he gets a good idea of what he can do before they release him too. The Walter Reed Patients learn so quickly to get around I am amazed.

I know he will do the same.

Jim, eat, sleep and keep a positive attitude as you begin the healing process. My thoughts and prayers will continue — I know you are surrounded by family and friends and good wishes from everyone on FR.

Thanks for the update.

When I was in the hospital for the 8 weeks after my accident many visitors made me tired quickly.

I am now sending up a prayer for Jim and all of you.

Thanks again Okiedoc.

Thank you so much. Jim is truly an angel here to visit us. At least that was my impression...

Glory to God for all things.

I am so pleased to hear that Jim is on the mend.
