And to give hope to others.
My husband is 20 years out from bile duct/liver/pancreatic cancer.   Back then it was a tough surgery, now not so invasive, but survival  is possible and with a good quality of life as well
Prayers up.

My brother died suddenly after an accidental fall in his home.  Please say a prayer for his wife, children and grandchildren.   Just a few days before his birthday.
Thanks

How awful!  Prayers to you and his loved ones.

My stubborn aunt -- the one I mentioned previously --  was complaining of shortness of breath.  I advised her to go to the emergency room. She refused.  Then I suggested she call her cardiologist.  She didn't.  Finally she had a home visit from a physician's assistant whose solution to the problem was to increase my aunt's Lasix dosage.  My aunt now takes 3 Lasix in the morning and 2 at night.  5 pills in a day.  I'm assuming the PA had this increased dosage authorized by a doctor, but I can't be sure the authorizing physician was my aunt's cardiologist.  5 Lasix pills a day seems a bit much.   And where is a diagnosis -- a root cause for the shortness of breath?  Seems to me my aunt should have been examined by her cardiologist before giving my aunt so much medication. 

By the way, I wasn't there when the PA came to visit; I'm getting this information from another of my aunt's nieces who spoke with the PA by phone after the visit.  Now if I had ben there, I would have questioned this increase in dosage.  My aunt comes from a generation where one didn't question the doctor or other health provider; so of course, she didn't ask.  I just can't abide health care providers pushing pills, particular on us old folks, instead of looking for a cause of our afflictions and maybe suggesting alternative treatments.  Me?  I give the doctors the third degree and it might make them crazy, but I'll be dammed if I'm going to just take more pills because they say so.

Absolutely!!! Battling with docs right now.  They are NOT God and often have a preset regiment of pills that they give their patients for xyz ailments, often in a hurry, with not taking into consideration past medical history, the patient's overall sense of well-being and if the side effects may make their symptoms worse.

Note to doctors:  IF a patients is experiencing an 'episode' and the test come back negative; perhaps its one of the darn meds that you insisted that they take in the first place!

So sorry to hear of your brother's death, @Rivergirl . My sincere sympathies.
Thanks for the encouraging words about liver and bile duct cancer. Mr. M's cousin seems to have come through surgery well, but we haven't heard her prognosis yet.

Please pray for my wife today. She has her final exam for this semester of nursing. She has been studying very hard and it is supposed to be a difficult exam.

Prayers for your wife's success.

Amen to all of that.  And if the doctor prescribes something that makes you feel worse, get on the horn and tell him.  My aunt will just keep taking the drug and suffer the side effects in silence.  Not me.

I’m behind on this thread @verga but I’m genuinely happy your wife is ok. If I had known to pray for her I would have, forgive me.

Please keep my mother and sister in your prayers.
My mother developed an infection in her leg and drove herself to the Hospital on Friday morning.
She did not call my sister until Sunday afternoon.
On top of the leg infection she has congestive heart failure and a blood clot in her leg.
She is driving my sister crazy because getting information from her is like pulling teeth.
The stuff she is telling my sister is jumbled up at best or a complete lie to make it seem like she should go home.

Please pray for both of them.
Thank you
