Thursday - You have to see this to believe it!

YOU HAVE GOT TO SEE THIS TO BELIEVE IT!

(From Angela at West Virginia Treasures - what a difference time makes.)



About the hubby:

We all went yesterday to the doctor and Rick was nervous ( more about all of us being there - lol) – but the hematomas have gone down and there is no new blood. 

He can go 4 weeks this time and then another CT scan and doctor’s visit. 

The doctor said to go ahead to Emory and have a second opinion on the 6th and I liked that.

Rick getting this was extremely unusual – as his brain is good and young (lol - which surprised me) and he was not injured.  So the doctor knows no reason why this happened – it is usually in 80 year old people.  There are no tumors – no tears – nothing.

But the hematomas are going in the right direction.   

Can it happen again – maybe, maybe not – so there are no answers really.   

But it is good news.  He can drive. He can lift up to about 25 pounds. The doctor said it could take months to go away - ????  Y

You are all so  kind, and I thank you so much for all your prayers and concerns.



Now I thought this was a great and positive thought for the day.

Some things I'd like to ask of you:

1.  Remember to turn off your word verification. It is so hard to read!!!

2.  Please send me an email if you have a blog button and I haven't put it on my blog. I might have missed one or two.

3.  Please send me your email address if  I don't have one for you - I'd like to reply to your comments.

THANK YOU!

Oh that is such great news that there is no new blood. It sure is a mystery why it happened, but a definite blessing that it is gone.
Go celebrate!

Nancy said...

Overjoyed that your hubby is getting better with no intervention. Sending positive thoughts for a full recovery and no re-occurrence! xoxo

Jeanie said...

Good news Sandie. I am so happy for all of you.

EM Illustrator said...

That is great news Sandie :)
You all must feel so relieved.
Great quote today!
Have a lovely day!

Lynn said...

That's such wonderful news! I'm so glad he's getting better. Prayers answered.

And that word verification thing makes me crazy, too. I have one blog friend who insists she needs it or she gets spammed. I noticed she allows anonymous comments and that's what causes the spam. I turned off allowing anonymous comments (because I never got legit ones anyway) and I never get spam comments now.

Great news sandie! !!!im glad he is better!!!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

That is wonderful news to hear today. You must be relieved and your hubby too. No one has all the answers and we just have to trust and believe all will be well. I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

Shelly said...

That is such good news to hear about your hubby. I hope he continues to heal until he is 100% again.

I'd read about that lady before, but never in such detail. Wow!

What a shocking story in the 'Unbelievable thread', something I had never heard or read.
But most of all so glad for a GOOD report on the Husband. Hope things continue to go his way!
Love from up here!!!!

SweetMarie said...

Love the quote!

Incredible story! So glad to hear about Rick...

DeanO said...

This is indeed a good report. Word Verification drives me crazy

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

that is one CRAZY story! Wow.

Word verification is even worse now that they're having pictures of numbers on there. I hate it!

barbara l. hale said...

laurie said...

oh my gosh, what great news!!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Wonderful news about Rick! I know you are happy he is healing and I know he is happy he can drive again. My Mom is just waiting for that when we go back to her Dr in June! Big hugs, Linda

Jim said...

Hi Sandie, glad to hear the good news! Driving is important for hubby, you can do the lifting.

I think you have my info. E-mail is is on the blog, side bar.

This morning I turned WORD VERIFICATION OFF and within ten minutes had TWO SPAM messages.

Those two were on older posts so I didn't have to remove them. They were waiting for comment moderation and of course I shunted them off to the trash barrel.

Remington said...

AWESOME NEWS!

TexWisGirl said...

great news on the hubby!!!

Life is good! said...

yay for both of you! it could have been worse you know, you could have had 4 legs AND 2 girly parts so you could have had 2 periods a month! glad everything is going well. have a great rest of the week!

Blondee said...

Praise the Lord that Rick is mending and on a good path! So relieved for you both. I cannot imagine the stress this has brought.
I still need to sit down and play with the settings on mine again, I can't seem to get the word verification off, my settings show it as being off already. And blogger never replies to my emails which is convenient as well. :P

The Jones Family said...

So great that you had good news from the doctor. What a relief that always is. Thanks for the post.

Ginny said...

I am so very glad that he is healing, still good to get that other opinion...when is the Emory appt.??

TARYTERRE said...

This is wonderful news about your husband. The fact the hematomas have gone down and there is no sign of new blood, is a blessing, indeed. However, I think you are wise to go to Emory and get a second opinion. You are still in my prayers. That was an interesting story about the lady with 4 legs. My friends great grandma had legs that stopped at the knees. that also was in the 1800's. She married and raised a family and did what she had to do. We were a tougher lot back then, than today. take care.

Knitty said...

Hooray for good news!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

This is wonderful news on Rick. I love answered prayers. I am sure he is glad he can drive again. Like the words of encouragement.
Hugs, Debby

Gloria Hood said...

So happy to hear the good news!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....The news about Rick was the best news EVER. Praise the Lord! Hope everything gets back to 100 percent normal once again. We cannot understand or begin to comprehend why certain things happen they way they do, but they definitely happen for a reason.

Sandie, that story about the lady with the four legs? If two belonged to her sister and the lady had two girly parts, where was the sister's HEAD? What happened to HER now that she had no legs and girly part. I didn't get it. Maybe I"m thick or something but I didn't understand, did you? Susan

Ann said...

That is fantastic news. I bet he's on cloud 9 right now and I'm sure he's happy about being able to drive again. Puzzling though how he got it in the first place

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

Well, I read it and I still don't believe it. Holy Cow!

I hope Rick keeps on in this direction. Sounds like he's doing better.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Wonderful news honey. So glad I came by tonight and found this post.
I will continue my prayers for you both.
I don't have the verfication thing on my site. Thank goodness. There is one thing everyone has that I can't get on my site it is the little blocks at the end of your post that stands for email this, google this and so on. I have tried everything but can't get them on mine. lol
I don't know if you have my email address it is grandmayellowhair@gmail.com.
I will be posting a give away soon so hope you can come by and enter.
Love
Maggie

Arkansas Patti said...

Absolutely wonderful news. Wish they could be more specific about cause but that is still great news. Sounds like life is getting back to normal again. Relax a bit now.

That 4 legged woman was a real mind blower. ~Debb

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Fabulous news about your hubby, Sandie... I do think you are smart to get that 2nd opinion. BUT--so far, everything looks good. I know you ALL are relieved. God is GOOD.

Hugs,
Betsy

KC said...

Praise the Lord! He hears our prayers and He is always faithful. I'm so pleased your husband's health is improving. I pray he will continue to go from strength to strength, and for God's peace and comfort. Love to you!

Great news for your hubby. Praying that he'll continue to improve and won't have any more problems. Praying for confirmation from the visit to Emory. {{hug}}

Cranberry Morning said...

Good news about Rick, Sandie! thanks for updating us. Praise God for the good report!♥

(renae) simple sequins said...

Sandie, I loved your 'thought' but I thoroughly loved your Signature Fairy. I was mesmerized by it. so fun!
Also - Chihuahua dogs are barkers. We had one as a child and they really really think they are a BIG dogs and to prove it they BARK!
I've missed as to what hubby has going on, but sounds like there is an improvement... so I'm glad for that for you! :)

ClassyChassy said...

wonderful news, Sandie - let's pray that more good news follows and pray God's protection over him.

silverthoughts2 said...

I've been thinking of your husband, wondering how everything was. I'm glad all seems well.

Human bodies can act up, at any age. Just have to enjoy good health when you have it-and deal with it when something goes wrong.

ruthie said...

That is an amazing story about the four legged woman. And I hope and pray for your husband's speedy recovery!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Granny Annie said...

Good news for Rick!

I turned off word verification a long time ago and have not had a problem with spam.

Debbie said...

I never expected the story. Freaky! However, the fact that she found love is the best part.

And I'm thrilled with the news about your husband! I'm just so glad that it went in the direction it did. I'm so glad I get to be a praise partner because I was a prayer warrior!

Jill said...

Amen, Sandie! I'm so thankful for the good news! Now prayers that the second opinion will agree. *HUGS*

Mevely317 said...

I haven't got to the video link yet ... still trying to catch up with blogland.
BUT could resist adding a big ole "Yahooooo!!!" re. your hubby's latest news. God is good!

Mevely317 said...

OK .. my bad, assuming this story was a video. UNBELIEVABLE!
I used to be so self-conscious and shy regarding my otherwise-ordinary looks ... God bless her and her lovely husband!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I am sure you are releaved. It will probably always be a mystery on what happened. I am glad he is recovering. I hope you have a great week.
