PostSubject: Prayers please!!   October 12th 2013, 6:31 pm

Hello all,
I haven't done this in quite some time on the board but my family is needing some prayers. We've had a rough year but positive things came out of those outcomes. My grandpa and my cousins baby girl!!! Earlier this summer we got news that my grandpa had almost no circulation in his legs, he's on dialysis and he keeps getting that area blocked, he's got so many balloons the man is going to float away. LOL! He was ready to call it quits, which in dialysis means its over! So that was tough!! We did end up getting better news and he's still continuing with dialysis and things are looking good. There is an evasive surgery they can do on his legs, but he's not to that point yet. The other was almost 3 months ago, my cousin (3 months younger than me) and his wife were finally having a baby that they tried for 15 years to have. She was born at 25 weeks....1lb 4oz....well our little Lexi is a hellava fighter. She is now 3lbs 10.3oz. she's so damn cute!!!! She's now 11 weeks old!!! Please keep them both in your prayers for continued success!!

My uncle suffered a mini stroke a few days ago. They found a blood clot on his brain, it is inoperable. The blood thinner they put him on has not worked at all, so they are trying something different now, but we don't know if it will work. Please pray that it works for him. He's got a 7 year old son that needs his daddy!!! Thank you all!!!!

Thank you!!! My grandpa was so tough and I struggled, I'm selfish not ready to lose him. But now everything is well with him. My uncle its tough for me, I lived with him for a few years after I graduated high school. He had a 3 bedroom house no wife or kids so I went to live with him until my now husband and I found an apartment, so I this is very much a shock to me. Not only is he in good health (besides this) but most of all his 7 year old son who very much is a daddys boy and he needs his daddy!! Its tough! I will say he's taking this all in stride honestly. When he got the initial diagnosis of blood clot he shrugged his shoulders and said ok now what. After todays news that its inoperable and the first med isn't working, his response is still...ok now what!?

UPDATE: What my uncle has is called Dural Sinus Venous Thrombosis, it is very rare 5 in 1 million and it usually happens with women that have been on birth control. Surgery is not an option because none of the drs here have ever performed it, its not like a typical blood clot where they can go through the groin, you can't do that with this one. Heperin is what he was on that did not work! He's now on cumidin which won't dissolve the clot, but we're hoping it will prevent anything else from sticking to it and blood can flow freely.  He says he feels fine, has had some numbing of his tongue a slight headache but overall he feels fine.  He's attitude is "well what can we do about" so not sure if its still shock or what.  Now he could live for years with this or he could be taken from us...no one knows which!! Sad But I guess that happens with everything.

My uncle was released today, I was able to visit with him since it was my day off. He looks good. The blood clot he said is actually from the front middle part of his head all the way to the back of the head....crazy right? It's in the drainage vein, kind of like a gutter, if the intake side gets blocked then it's much more serious. It's still serious, but we're much more optimistic than we were on Saturday. He will be on cuimidin for the rest of his life. No limitations either. He will be having CT scans weekly to make sure the clot isn't moving and to make sure there is still blood able to move thru. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

Will the meds eventually clear the clot? I'm glad he was released.

He's had 3 different doctors tell him different things....1 says it will help dissolve it, 1 says it will help so no other blood will stick to it, 1 says your body has a natural chemical that will eventually dissolve it could take months, years or never! So pretty much we don't know! He will be on cuimidin for the rest of his life we do know that.
