Thanks, John. I'm doing okay. Could be better, but we often don't get to choose what happens in our lives. If Bob is in the St. Louis area at one of the hospitals here, I'd just like to connect up with him to see if there is any help I can offer. He said that the problem developed after he crossed into Missouri, which does suggest St. Louis. I do kind of know my way around St Louis...

Bob hang in there, so sorry your wife became ill, I've been down a yr and a half, as I have liver problems because of the weight I used to carry, also have a heart valve problem, and hardly any chance to live thru surgery, so I told them no more testing, keep me in blood, so since Feb a yr ago I've had 28 units of blood put into me. Tell her to keep fighting, don't give up

Bob, I'm not meaning to sound like I know anything about your wifes situation. I've been dealing with a sick liver for several years. My last biopsy showed level 3 condition with grade 2 inflamation. For years my SGOT and SGPT liver functions were very elevated and I was about a half step from cirohsis. I went through a lot of weakness and had a lot of time to talk with the almighty. As it turned out I went on a type of chemo-therapy for several months and it put the liver disease into remission. I never reached the point of jaundice, however the chemo caused my hair to fall out, I was fatigued and I had little or no appetite. The appetite thing was good because I avoided a lot of the vomiting. But the thing is, at the end of it all everything seems to have turned out okay for me. The liver is strong and recovering from this sort of issue is possible to nearly inevitable. Seek as much help as you can from liver specialists. There's a lot of good endocrinologists out there that can really help. I'm praying for the best results for you and your wife. God bless, Mike

Bob:

Thanks for taking the time to update us. You and your wife are in my prayers.

I hope by Monday they have come up with a quicker means to find out what is causing the problem!

Perhaps you could ask the doctors to consult with experts at other local hospitals as suggested.

Arnie


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dick Lodge - St Louis MO on Saturday, March 22, 2014 - 06:11 pm:

Bob,

Further to what Arnie said, I asked my doctor to recommend a liver specialist at Barnes-Jewish (one of the leading teaching hospitals in the country) and he responded with this one:

Thank all of you for your concern, we got home late yesterday and Connie will start with a new specialist on Monday, good news is they say her counts are coming down slowly and the test show this was a infection maybe due to over the counter vitaman , but we also got ten answers from that hospital, so we will see what this week brings, thanks to all of you, will keep you posted, Bob

A friend of mine at work (back before I retired) was on a green tea kick for a while. He had to stop drinking it because it was interacting with his blood pressure and cholesterol medications (so his doctor told him).

I remember as a kid, there used to be a product carried at the supermarket, next to the boxes of Jell-O, called "Knox Gelatin".

On the front of the box was artwork showing a woman's hand with long, manicured fingernails holding a clear goblet of orange liquid.

Below the artwork it said something like "Knox Gelatin for Beautiful Hair and Nails".
I remember my mom saying "That stuff messes up your liver."

Guess Mom was right. She always was.

Glad to hear your wife is on the mend Bob.

Two angels went out collecting prayers. One collected prayers asking for something and the other collected prayers of thanksgiving. Which one do you think collected the most?

I submit both: a thank you for Connie's recovery and one that there will be no reoccurrence.

BTW, I went back over this whole series of posts and I only saw "Mrs. Bob's" name mentioned once. It's Connie, right? Thanks Rodney...I like to use a name.
