Dear Heavenly Father,

You said that when two or more are gathered in Your name, there You are also. We come together as friends and family of Jim to ask that You place Your hand of protection upon Jim during his surgery today. Lord, bless the hands, minds, and souls of the surgical team. Let their hands be Your hands. Let their decisions be Your decisions. We lift him up to You and ask that You carry him through surgery and return him to us happy, healthy, and whole.

We also ask that Your Holy Spirit provide an overwhelming sense of peace for Jim, Sheila, Chris, and John. Comfort them as they wait for good news from the surgical team. Bless and keep each of them today.

Your Holy Word says that in Christ all things are possible. We ask these things in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ and thank you for answered prayers.

Your humble servants, Amen

Prayer by Buckeye Texan



Thank you Buckeye Texan and MamaBear

Jim,

I pray for the peace that passes all understanding to fill your heart and mind with the knowledge and love of God; and for the hands of healing and for those who love you, and draw near to support you, to be comfortable and serene in these times of trial. God is with you, and everything is going to be all right. Amen.

So fortunate that this came up BEFORE the surgery than in the middle of it, Jim. Hope you respond quickly and can get back on schedule. Praying for a quick response to the magnesium and fluids. Get some rest! —— or at least TRY to!

I’ve been debating whether to say this - -
Been wondering if Jim R. sought any care from alternative docs.
There are some alternative MD’s in So. Calif. I would trust if they said they could or could not help me.
Even if it was just a few steps up towards healing.

In a thread a few days ago, I offered prayers from here in Ventura County, to Jim, surgical team, family, and friends.

I don’t think he checked any alternative medicine.

The VA doctors did try the Manuka Honey and that worked for a while. Since the circulation in his legs is so weak and he is unable to get out of his wheelchair, the outlook for improving the circulation is not good.

He has received good care from his VA doctors.

I know that when he went thru this on his left leg, he almost waited too long.

"Your Grace Finds Me"
It’s there in the newborn cry
There in the light of every sunrise
There in the shadows of this life
Your great grace

It’s there on the mountain top
There in the everyday and the mundane
There in the sorrow and the dancing
Your great grace
Oh such grace...

From the creation to the cross
There from the cross into eternity
Your grace finds me, yes Your grace finds me

It’s there on a wedding day
There in the weeping by the graveside
There in the very breath we breathe
Your great grace

The same for the rich and poor
The same for the saint and for the sinner
Enough for this whole wide world
Your great grace
Oh such grace

There in the darkest night of the soul
There in the sweetest songs of victory
Your grace finds me
Yes Your grace finds me

Your great grace
Oh such grace
Your great grace
Oh such grace

So I’m breathing in Your grace
And breathing out Your praise
I’m breathing in Your grace
Forever I’ll be

Your grace finds me
Yes Your grace finds me

Praise God and your wonderful doctors for pumping those fluids into you and also that magnesium. It’s seems it’s most always the simple things, like magnesium and we sure thank our good Lord for that!

G-d Be Praised.

Prayers have been on my mind off and on all day. I didn’t know the surgery had been delayed, but glad they caught a problem before it became a danger. Prayers continue through until he is in the clear. Sending love and hugs to Jim through you when you go see him. Love to you too Amy.

A little bit of levity for you after a very stressful day ...

Amy, you haven’t yet met my son, but Jim & onyx have. I call him Little Man ... because I’m raising a man not a boy. Heh!

Little Man had his very first football game today at 4:30 CDT. He was so worried about you, Jim. He looked up at me for a thumbs up/down update frequently. (Not kidding.)

So there I was ... in the stands praying for your heart rate one minute, a touchdown the next, protection from head injury the next, back to your rapid heart rate, rinse & repeat. The good Lord was probably receiving those prayer requests while thinking “Heart rate & football? Is she serious? Oh, wait ... she’s in Texas.”

I am off to bed and on my knees about your heart rate, dehydration, magnesium levels, and surgery. No football!

You are loved much, dear man.

VKAOYF,
Tex

P.S. Amy, thank you soooo much for the updates! xoxo

I went into see Jim this afternoon around 4:30. I didn’t see the post about the surgery being postponed so it took a while to find him. Eventually I discovered that he was in ER. He was in good spirits like he always is, but was very sleepy due to the morphine for the pain. He still didn’t have a room when I left at 5 P.M. Chris came in and said that Sheila would be in later in the evening to visit him.

My understanding about the heart rate is that it has to be at a reasonable level so that if it goes up during a surgery they will have that leeway. But if it is up already and they do surgery and the heart is already working hard and it goes even higher things could go bad fast.
Also the magnesium level needs to be at the right level. Any imbalance in the chemical makeup of the body can cause problems with medication, anesthetic (not a good thing), or cause undue stress in the vital organs.

Jim also told me that he was dehydrated, which can be another risk during surgery. The body is around 97 % water, so you don’t want to stress out the cells, keep the blood flowing smoothly and have the vital organ stay happy.

I noticed on this thread and the other one that many have said, let’s just get it done. Well it is a blessing that they are postponing this to get Jim’s body to the best level it can to handle the stress of surgery.

I promised him that I will come by tomorrow to see him.
