Oh, Marge, I was wondering how he was doing and hadn't clicked on the 2nd page of this.  I do pray he's coming along better now.  May God pour His blessings on each of you.

Dear Marge;  Thought I'd drop in and see what is new with Hart.  I am hoping that no recent news is indeed, good news! Still saying prayers!

Love

Friends~
Thanks to each and everyone of you for the blessings of your prayers and well wishes~
Wishing we had some better news to report,
but Hart is still in the convalescent center~

After our children questioned one of the diagnosic results of a CT Brain Scan, a nerologist has been summoned to come and go over the CT Scans ... his primary care physician had been treating him for a middle ear infection because Hart was having trouble with his balance and no leg strength~

Seems that there is a possiblity that he may have NPH (Normal Pressure Hydroencephalitis), which is an increasing amount of fluid on the brain~
If that turns out to be the case, then he will have surgery that places a stent/shunt in his skull to drain the fluid~
IF that happens then the chances are really good that he can regain the use of his legs~

On top of it all, *sigh*, it seems that after being on such high doses of antibiotics, he developed/caught (?) a deadly bacterial infection called C-Diff~
Not going into the gruesome symptoms, but rest assurred they are not pleasant for the patient~
Hopefully they will get it under control with an anti-bacterial treatment~

Our youngest son, Steven, gets married tomorrow and sadly Hart won't be able to attend~

Life's given us a bunch of lemons and they seem to be squeezing us some awfully sour moments~
Hart and the family need your continuing prayers, please~

We sincerely thank you all~

Margie, in my book, your a kind woman, asking for others much before yourself, so, rest assured, this person will be in my prayers.  

Love to you, and always, ask, ask, ask!!!!

*sigh*

The brain scan has confirmed NPH - Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (more correct spelling)
[Why in God's name they call it NORMAL is beyond us}

Anyhow ... there is fluid on the brain that needs to be eliminated ... the actual surgical procedure (if Hart's heart problems allow it) would be to drill through the skull ... place a stent into the brain for drainage ... then inserted into the stomach for an elimination place.

He's seeing two neurosurgeon's for ALL OPTIONS ... make no mistake ... it is supposed to be a fixer for the problem ... but is scary as hell to us all.

NPH is missed SO OFTEN in diagnosis ... and many are incorrectly diagnosed with Alzheimer's ... instead of the correct diagnosis which is treatable.

Needless to say, we are all under a great deal of stress at this time .... I promise to try to keep this thread up-to-date when we know exactly the when and where and what if's of it all~

Thank you all for your extreme kindness to my family and to Hart ... and to me~

Please congratulate the newly weds for me.  It's difficult to go forward when such serious health problems hang.  Prayer will continue for your entire family, Marge.

God bless each of you,
   Rae

I apologize for not telling you all that the wedding was simply beautiful ... Steven and Gia were married by her mother with Gia's three children as the attendants~

All of our family was there with the exception of Dad ... and they did a special song dedication for him at the reception, 'That's My Job' ... which brought teary-eyes to EVERYONE present ... we did have Dad on the phone for the ceremony, so that he could hear our youngest get married~

Steven and Gia are a lovely ocuple ... and after almost 9 years together ... they finally figured out it would 'work' as a married couple~  They have NEVER EVER had a cross word between the two of them ...

Thank you all for asking and for the well-wishes~  I will send them forward~
