Thoughts and Prayers for 35 Terraplane

My good friend and fellow Hot Rodder is having even more health problems again and he and his wife need your thoughts and prayers.

Karen recently posted this on their CaringBridge link:
We are on our way to the ER in Crosby - Bob by ambulance - me following and hopefully the ambulance and I will both make it there safely on these icy roads. Bob fell twice today and I had to call 911 both times. The first time he did not want to go to the hospital as we were scheduled to go to the Univ of MN Medical Center on Monday for a meeting with his transplant nephrologist - probably to admit Bob for more dialysis to get more fluid off of him. I pray that the ER doctor will send Bob by ambulance to Minneapolis as I cannot lift Bob and he can't stand on his own tonight. He just got so weak. Please pray for us. I will update when I know more. I know God is with us - as He is always with us. I am just so scared right now. I don't want to lose him..........

Pray for safe travels tonight and tomorrow - and for healing!


I'll try and keep this up to date when I know something else.
WR/Em

Em - thanks for the post on Bob. He has had a real tough time these past couple of years and recently I have missed his posts here. I hope he just has had a bad couple days and things will be back to as normal as possible for him.

Here's an update on Bob - - - please keep the positive thoughts and prayers going - - - I am a firm believer that they work.

At the ER in Crosby, Dr. Walz (wonderful doctor) determined that Bob was dehydrated and was in need of fluids. He was very good at explaining everything and he contacted the on-call at UMMC to discuss whether treatment would continue in Crosby or Bob should be transported to UMMC. The decision was that since Bob is a transplant patient, they wanted to treat his fluid imbalance at UMMC. So, about 6:30 AM or so, the ambulance left for Minneapolis.

Here is the latest update on Bob:

Karen wrote:
The transplant team (Maroon 4) assigned to Bob decided Bob needed dialysis to help remove the fluid build up that was around his heart and lungs again. The 2-hour dialysis session today took off 7lbs. He will have a 4-hour dialysis on Wednesday - don't know if it is morning or afternoon. When I left this afternoon to drive home, the OT was planning how to try to rebuild some strength in Bob's arms and legs so he is strong enough to come home and get around with his walker again.

Right now, plans and treatments are fluid as they are not sure if Bob's transplanted kidney is weakening or if the issues are all right side heart related... and they don't know if he will need to be placed in a care center again. So, this is all I can tell you at the moment.

Thanks for all the phone calls, prayers, emails, texts, facebook posts, etc. They give us strength and a chance to smile at how blessed we are to have so many friends.
