Wife's surgery & illnesses
« on: July 17, 2018, 10:28:28 pm »
My wife Jennifer had a gastric sleeve surgery on June 20th, and her recovery has been a bit on the slow side.

She also suffers from EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) and was recently diagnosed with periodic limb movement disorder - but her Neurologist has ordered more tests to get to the bottom of her twitching; which all of this has been really hard to witness as her husband - and sadly; not much I can really do to stem her pain and discomfort.

I would really appreciate the prayers and "good vibes", hoping we have some answers and a good plan of attack soon.

That must be really hard to witness. My prayers for you both.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Wishing your wife a quick recovery. It is hard when a loved one is not feeling well.

Hopefully you will get answers that will set a course for solid recovery.  You and your wife are in my thoughts.

Sorry she (and you) are going through all of that. I'll be praying for her recovery and for helpful results from the testing.

I hope your wife feels better soon.  EDS is a bear, from what I hear, poorly understood at this point and thus difficult to treat adequately, and any kind of surgery is well into the territory of No Fun.  Holding y'all up.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

You have my prayers and good thoughts for a good recovery. Hard to go through pain yourself but I think it's worse when it's a loved one who is suffering.
