Our Margie has had a very rough day I'm afraid. I just received an email from her daughter, who asked me to pass it along to Marge's friends.

So here is what Tracey said:

"We brought her to Shands Hospital in Gainesville today
for a bronchoscopy as an outpatient. There was a problem during the procedure, and the doctor accidentally collapsed her lung. She had another procedure
before where they collapsed her lung on purpose to reach an area for a sample, at that time a tube was inserted, she healed on her own but has a lot of pain. This time the lung was not supposed to collapse, but a tube had to be inserted again.  Hopefully it too will heal on it's own, and hopefully she won't have a lot of enduring pain after the tube is removed. Anyway, because of the problem, she had to be admitted to the hospital. We did not anticipate that. She should have been home hours ago. She is in a lot of pain right now but doing pretty good otherwise. She had a very long and difficult day. I am writing you from a computer in the lobby of a hotel near the hospital. She does not have access to email. She ate some dinner and is resting now. But she wanted me to tell you so you would know and would be able to spread the word. She is not up to phone calls right now, so that's why I'm not including a phone number."


So I'm asking yet again to please keep your loving and powerful prayers of healing and comfort for Marge going.

I know you will, as will I.

We love you Marge!

Be well. and rest..

Thank you dear Karen for this information.
I am so sorry to hear there were complications and pain to endure. But the fact that dear Marge could eat sounds encouraging.
I am praying.
Love and hugs.

Marge, in our lighting of candles and in coming together in our circle of love and faith for a dear friend and poet, please know that the healing murmurs are not just of the waters of healing but of all of the whispers from us to you, to gain support and reassurance that you will come through this trial and continue to be your physicians' medical oddity of spirit!

Thank you Tracey for contacting Karen and thank you Karen for posting. Shands Hospital in Gainesville is a very good teaching hospital and they have the newest and the best means available. Know that Marge is in good hands. With that and herfamily, home friends and PIP friends she is going to be okay. "late"

Please know how much I appreciate the update about our dear Marge. It could be better news but at least the procedure is over and that she ate dinner is a good sign.
God Bless you Marge, we love you.

Oh, darn! Marge, dear love you have had such a difficult time. I'm so sorry all this is
happening and I do hope you feel better
soon.

God's angels are still sitting on your
shoulder and Ron and I are continually
keeping you in our prayers.

Be well, hugs and loves, Marti

Thank you Tracie and Karen.  Marge (via Karen and Tracie) I am praying extra hard so that the pain fades and recovery sets in and that there is a successful diagnosis.

Very gentle huglets round a finger so that it doesn't hurt.

Hope you are feeling better, Karen.  Gentle huglets for you too.

Ow. Collapsed lung.  My 21 year old grandson just experienced this for the 3rd time and said the pain is horrendous.  Hopefully it will heal quickly and fully.  Also, I'm praying the cause of your lung problem is found.

Thanks to Tracie and Karen for informing us.

God bless,

All that our beloved Marge has had to endure is beyond comprehension.

Dear Margie Girl, the prayer circle will intensify with this latest news. You are such a wonderful person and have a shining, determined spirit. You WILL get past this troublesome period in your life. God bless you!

Sending my love and healing hugs ~ and continued prayers,

Linda

That really does sound painful!

I don't know if this is new news or not, but I got word from Tracie today:

"Mom has asked me to update you. She is still in Shands Hospital in Gainesville. She still has a chest tube and a lot of pain. The leak in her lung has gotten smaller, following a procedure called a blood patch, that was used to help seal the leak. She will have a repeat blood patch tonight. There have been some ups and downs all week, but today I believe she is starting to turn the corner and get healthy again. Let's hope she gets out this week and gets back home. My brothers and I are taking turns going up to be with her. She is anxious to get well and get back on the computer with her friends. --Tracie"

Send all your angels onto Marge--I seem to be in excellent hands here.

Much love and prayers to Marge and family--continued.
