Praying for you Geoff. I get what you mean when you say your body feels older. COPD is very draining. My Mom is on full time oxygen and still struggles to breathe. Sleeps w a breathing machine at night. (Tries)
My thoughts are with you as you fight this battle. I will keep you in my prayers. Wishing you all the best. sjc

I ask you for prayers for me.
I made it through the triple bypass in 2012.
I did ok with the surgical repair of a torn rotator cuff this past July.
Now I have been diagnosed with COPD.
I am still walk/running 3 miles 3 times a week, so I have hope.
But this is a condition that is not able to be reversed and usually gets worse.
I covet your prayers and trust my God.

I just saw this, Geoff, and want you to know that you are in my prayers.

I'd like to ask for prayers, too. I have a small amount of fluid on or behind my retina (not sure which). My optometrist said that these things often resolve themselves, but I have an appointment with a retina specialist on September 14 just to be safe. It's so easy to take something like clear vision for granted. The last thing I want to do is lose my visual acuity. Thank you.

Praying for Donna.

I don't think I have come on this thread before, at least not under this handle (may have had another handle years ago on my old computer??). But I am requesting prayers for the health of my mom, another family member, and a friend with cancer. Thank you.

Hi everyone. Prayers for comfort and acceptance. My wonderful Mother in Law is terminal. No course of tx available...appx 2 months.
Mesothelioma...
I pray that she passes comfortably and that my children handle their Gradmother's passing OK...My daughter is getting married in a few months and knows her Grammy will more than likely not be in attendance. So sad. My heart breaks for all. Prayers. Thank you.

There was a reason this thread came up. My daughter has been having brain bleeds. Three in the last three months. This last one was pretty bad but it stopped so they sent her home yesterday. We had to bring her back today. She can't swallow so she can't eat or drink or take meds.

Between the brain headache, bad enough, and sciatica, she's in constant, terrible pain. They can't give her enough meds to even take the edge off because she's non responsive. We have hospice standing by.

Please pray for her husband and daughter. They need the strength to help her through this and for after.

There's no hope but I continue to hope.

Thank you.

SJC and Gertie, love you both and you and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love

SJC, I am sorry about your mother in law. Praying.

Gertie, I will pray for your daughter, specifically that the pain will stop.

My friend with cancer (mentioned in a previous post) passed away a few weeks ago. It was pancreatic cancer that had spread to the liver. At the end, she was in a hospice-type nursing home with pain management. Fortunately, her family says she died peacefully.

The power of prayer.

DD knew me last night. She woke up, her eyes were clear and she was able to say "Hiya, Mom." The two most beautiful words I ever heard. This morning, she passed the swallow test and was able to eat. Coffee, a cookie and some applesauce.

See, I didn't lose hope. DD isn't out of the woods. She'll never be out of the woods, but we thank God for every day we have with her.

I will keep all my KBoards family in prayer. 
Especially remembered in love at Christmas time.
SJC - praying for your family.  It is always hard.  Good to have lived a blessed life.
Gertie - every day we have with our loved ones is precious.  The best news is that they will be beyond pain and in the Loving hand of God.  And that we will see them again.  I pray for peace.

I have been experiencing some vertigo.
Have done the Ear/Nose/Throat (ENT) thing.  Now the Neurologist and have had the head MRI done.
Waiting for the MRI to be "read".

Hello all. Praying daily. It's been a tough year. I don't frequent the boards as often as I should but I do think of you quite often and I do keep you in my prayers. GeoffThomas... I went through thousands of dollars and a battery of different tests for the same thing. I diagnosed my vertigo on my own. Onions!!! Very difficult to pinpoint because you do not get the reaction when you ingest them; but you choose to three days later. Severe vertigo often accompanied by vomiting in the worst migraine one can imagine. Prayers...

Geoff, hope (and praying) that you are doing well.

Now I have a serious health issue. I have a pulmonary embolism. Had a CT angiogram with dye on Friday, simply to check out any possible problems because of family history of CAD. Cardiologist called me right after I got home to tell me. I thought "now I'll be put into the hospital." Also "how am I not dead?" But no, she prescribed blood thinner, suggested two and I took Xaralto.

Had a long episode same day trying to get my prescription filled. Started with Duane Reade (Walgreens) and when they failed by having it filled at a downtown location, I switched to CVS and even there they did not have the starter kit and needed the doctor's permission to fill with two bottles with different dosages. Finally got to pick it up at 10pm.

I have not had shortness of breath, but I wondered why I've been quite tired after retirement. I am no longer spending 10 hours a day, 5 x a week going to and being at work downtown. I'd told the cardiologist in December that the 4 flights of stairs to my apartment was not as easy as it once was, and she thinks that was a sign. I doubt that. I do think it could be hereditary (going to hematologist who is my internist this Wednesday) and will have the blood tests for that. I looked up Evista (Rolaxifene) last night and DVT/PE is a common side effect. So I've stopped without asking the GYN. I had been taking it since last August. Also I had a tripping fall last September and my knee is still not completely healed, which could have caused DVT.

When my brother Russ died in 2005 at age 59, the autopsy showed pulmonary embolism as cause and diabetes. I do think his case was quite different (if you knew us both it would be obvious). I do not have high blood sugar, and my blood pressure was lower than usual prior to the CT angiogram (109/71) and heart rate 55 (it's usually 60, I think).
