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.

Thank you dear Lord!

I’ve been checking every few minutes too, and this news has me in tears! Now to wait to hear what the doctors say and —— then begins the recovery. But it is so good to know that his inner strength came thru for the surgical part. Sheila nd the family must be so relieved!

Thanks so much JustAmy!!

Don’t stop the prayers. Post-operative complications can be serious, especially when other medical conditions are present.

This is great news so far, but this isn’t the checkered flag waving yet. The next week is just as important as this surgery.

Still, you can’t help but be encouraged.

Great stuff.

Once more I shall take the liberty of saying this. Thank you, unsung heroes of the medical profession! Jim seems to be well on his way to being his old self ( English expression).

Should be about a 1000 hits by 930pm EST.

I haven’t talked to any of the family but I received this via FReepmail from Saundra Duffy. I tried to ask her permission before posting but she is probably on her way home .... I know she wouldn’t mind so .......

Jim Update!

Hi, Amy.

After work, I went to talk to Sheila. Jim’s sister and Jim’s brother was also there. Anyway, while I was talking to them, they wheeled Jim out of surgery. He was sleeping peacefully. So it’s over. The family was going to talk with the doctors and so I left and came home. Sheila wants everyone to keep up their prayers. I will check in on him tomorrow. I heard the nurse say he came through just fine. OK.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Love, Saundra

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Saundra .... thank you for checking on him for us.

Our prayers are continuing.


Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers, continue to watch over Jim, bind his wounds as only you as the Master Physic an can and send him back to us.

AMEN

Hear yea, hear yea!!! Thank you Father!!

Good news update .....

John Robinson called to tell me his Dad was out of surgery and everything went well. I asked if there was any other info that he could share. He said ....

Well he has an appetite. I said “You mean he is eating?” John “Yeah .... you want to talk to him?”

I would never have guessed that I would be able to talk to Jim tonight.

I gave Jim a few personal messages and he was please to hear them.

The leg had to be removed above the knee instead of below the knee as had been planned. When they got inside, they said the infection had spread into his muscles and they had to remove all of the infected area to stop the spread.

Jim said they must still have him doped because he was not in any pain.

I told him to rest well tonight knowing that all FReepers and several Former Freepers are praying for him.

I also told him that he should have just given me a list of all FReepers for my ping list! ;^ )

He laughed and said he didn’t think of that.

I am sooo happy to make this post!!!

Thank you all.
