Valentine lady will be undergoing the scalpel on Wed Oct 29, 2014 to have nerves in her shoulder rerouted. She's been having problems with her two little fingers in her hand going numb.

I pray that she has a safe and pain free proceedure and that this surgery does what needs to be corrected.

James.

HI James!

Thank you so much for the update. I am sorry to hear that she is being pushed out of the hospital like this. It is a very harsh healthcare system we have to live with, and that is a very good example. Really sorry.

I know this must be hard on you. As a family member, having to deal with this can just make you feel so frustrated and helpless. She is fortunate to have you on her side!

I hope that she feels better soon. I know that having you with her will continue to be a blessing for her.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Gary

I do not know VL, but know this surgery is painful, as my sister smashed her shoulder a few yrs back and needed 2 surgeries due to the first one not reattaching nerves correctly. How lazy can a resident get? Best wishes to VL I hope she is out of pain soon, and surgery is successful and she heals quickly.

Outrageous!! Wouldn't that better pain med follow her to the nursing home since it seems logical that it was ordered for her at the hospital? Couldn't the surgeon's office get thru to him even on vacation to at least order the med to be continued? Doesn't make sense to me.

A new development.

VL is out of the hospital and in her nursing home as of approx 7 pm cdt. I called her to surprise her and she told me ta diifferent Dr is kicking her out of the hospital.

She had been told previously that her surgeon, Dr Brinley wanted her in the hospital at least through the weekend, since she would need the strong pain medication Dilaudid to cut the pain. The resident discharging her doesn't have the power to write a scrip for such a powerful pain med so she has to get by with the lesser pain med in the nursing home. So she will be suffering all weekend.

This jerk Resident discharged all of Dr Brinley's surgeries. His excuse for doing this is he wanted to get some sleep this weekend and couldn't with all of these surgery patients in the hospital. (Do I detect a short residency coming for this guy when Dr Brinley comes back from his weekend vacation? Would be interesting to be a fly on the wall when the Dr comes back and finds his patients gone.)

So please continue to pray for VL for strength to endure the pain, and of course for a easing of the pain as well.

I received a call from Dr Brinley, the surgeon, and at about 5pm CDT he finished the surgery and is recovering in the hospital. Spoke with her about 9 pm CDT and she was groggy but feeling OK.

She wanted to thank all who posted prayers and kind words of encouragement. She is supposed to be recovering in hospital for the next 3 to 4 days and she won't be able to come online until she gets out. But I expect her to be back as soon as she can.

Thanks to all
James

Thanks all for your responses.

She entered the hospital at about 7 am cdt and should be pretty well into the surgery by now. She plans to call when it is over and will update you all here when she does.

Had a prayer with VL tonight on the phone. She had taken a sleeping pill and was pretty groggy by the time we got done. She'll be getting up at about 4 AM CDT for a 7 AM check in. Praying for a sure and steady hand for Dr Brimsford throughout tomorrow.

I hope EVERYTHING goes well and she recovers in better condition than her prior condition. Also wish the best for 'hound dog' and his surgery. No fun for anyone. And the older we get the rougher it is on us. It is a shame we do not heal as fast as when we were 25 or so. May GOD watch over you 2 and return you to your families.
