Prayers needed for George, again

by Glenda / October 24, 2005 12:58 PM PDT

"Yep, I'm back in again with Pseudomonas (Pneumonia)
this time. Not good with the deseased lungs and
anemia. Been here since Oct, 8th. No eta as yet when
I'll get back home. Just received some more blood
transfusions and will be running cat scans tonight"

I just C&P'd part of George's email, And this wonderful man is concerned about my health! Please everyone keep George on your prayer list and Pray hard!
He can surf the net in his hospital room and does read in SE, so put a smile on his face Happy

Love you George, Hang in there!!

I was getting confirmation on which 'George' you were referring to.....had a senior moment but actually guessed the right one according to the other Mods I asked.

Prayers are sent along with the forum angels....If you're reading this and still have the ability to wink at a nurse (or pinch her butt), you're on your way to recovery, hon. Hang tuff.....as it's the tuff ones they kick out the door quickly. (Ask Glenda...)

For sure!!!

You are always in my prayers, George! Now the up-side.

At least it's been a long time when those cold metal bedpans were used. Happy

And now they have those ''instant'' thermometers, so we don't have to hold them in our mouths like beforem while being scared the glass would break and we would end up with mercury poisoning.

And so many goodies come packed new and unused. (Ever wonder if those metal pitchers had been properly cleaned?) Toothpaste (unknown brand), toothbrush, comb, a tiny box of not-very soft tissues, a minsicule bar of soap, an ounce of mouthwash, bedpan and wash basin. Free gifts! Happy

Those wash pans have tons of uses at home. I use 3 for the dog's toys so he can get to them easily. A couple more for bathroom supplies. And if you have an ''eggshell'' mattress on your bed, take it home. You paid for it. (You also paid for those free gifts. :-))

Sure do miss your sunny disposition!

I can't tell you how many

of those thermal blankets I've accumulated over the years....gave many away to my kids and grandkids. They make great throw blankets for watching tv or reading for the kids when they're laying on the floor. Lightweight, but really warm.

Assume you are talking about George (Rolway).

Hang in there George. You have had a hard time this year, but like you said last May, 'I'll be back' is the spirit. Wish you well and home soon.

Everyone for all prayers and thoughts extended here. Sure helps and I hope the Boss up stairs takes a little interest, cause I ain't ready to go yet...So Be It!!!

The pneumonia in the left lung is starting to show some improvement. Cat scans found blood clots in right lung cutting off the blood and oxygen flow. That combinded with my COPD, anemia, asbestos makes it a little tough sucking in some air. As long as I keep my mouth shut, breath thru the nose and wiggle my toes, I'm OK. (Grin)

Excellent care here, Terrific Nurses, Good Food, All private rooms with TV Internet access. The Docs and Specialists I have had for past 10 yrs are top notch. So, for a little ole farm boy I'm living high off the hog, so to speak. All on SS MeddyCare HMO. It works.

And, to top it off, all you good folks on SE rooting for me how can I miss. Gives me the extra push to fight and get the hell out of here so I can deal with it on my own terms.

Thanks Sue, you take care of yourself.
AND GOD BLESS ALL the wonderful members here.

I'm awful sorry to hear that you're ailing. Man, if it ain't one dang thing it's another. At least you've got good medical care and a good attitude. I think that makes a big difference.

I spent a week in the hospital myself not too long ago. Broken hip, 'ya know. Can't say it was a big bowl of cherrys but, for the most part they tried pretty hard and what the hey? Keeps life interesting. Anyway, I've left the walker behind and the cane is now just for moral support. Hopped in the car and bought myself some groceries today. I'm not officially supposed to, but I've been going a bit stir-crazy and with moving very slowly and a lot of care, I figured it was okay. Love this fall weather!

Keep wiggling those toes, George! And whup this thing real soon, eh?

Your friend,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
