On  the  1st of October, Val  (my wife ) was rushed to the hospital , coughing up  a lot of blood .   2 days later they transferred her to a hospital 2 towns away . She has since had 2  surgical procedures  to try and stop the bleeding from her lungs . Both procedures  went “well”. But we have had a few scares since . Still signs of blood coming up,   but  a lot less . and hopefully  just  just leftover from the procedures .  She also developed a large  hematoma in her leg. etc etc etc ...

Needles to say ..  I have been scared shitless since . Shes is still in the hospital.

 Anxiety is off the charts . and this  up and down good news / bad news  is killing  me . I honestly think Val is dealing with it better than me .  She is a trooper  that’s for  sure . Please keep her  in  your  thoughts and   we will take any good vibes you have to send .

I'm so sorry for everything Val and you are going through Pick :(

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your wife!

Prayers and positive thoughts for healing and strength. I know how terrifying it is watching a spouse with health issues, experienced a lot of terror seeing my wife go through open heart surgery over a year ago.

I have soo much to  say here  to  your reply Derek ,, but i am just  drawing a blank ..  Yet .. I think  you know  .. it's the kind of thing that  really needs no words .  just an  understanding nod . 

thank you . 

No words necessary. Just know you both are in a lot of people's thoughts. 

Prayers for you and Val pick...

My prayer beads are out, pulling for you both, stay strong :)

Prayers for Val and you. Keep your head up, and stay positive, just as Val is.

Our thought are with you both.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts , and the vibes seem to be working , Val had a pretty good day today ,  with no scares , or bad news .

yall are the best  people  on the planet .

Thanks-  to each and every one of you .  

Brother, this is what family does! We're all family. God bless.

Prayers from here. My wife's name is Val too...
