    • Hey BBU family...it's me here again asking for prayers and good thoughts..hubby is SUPER sick AGAIN

      just got insurance authorization approval to go to a gastro specialist ..will be calling in the AM to get the soonest appointment they have for him! I pray we get some answers and proper treatment ...he has been sick basically since the end of July for at least 7-10 days out of each month 😔 He has now lost over 50 pounds total since this started ...y'all he is almost down to the weight he was when he came back from his first year long deployment to Iraq! He's at least 20 pounds under what he should be for "normal" ...I'm very worried and hate feeling helpless to "fix" this for him. I know diverticulosis can be horrible and dangerous ...and that is currently the only official diagnosis we've gotten...but I just feel like there is more going on or that the treatment so far is not enough/working for him.

      Mostly I just know my nerves are shot and he can't keep going like this I appreciate you prayers and good thoughts, friends <3

        Shan - I am so sorry to hear this news about your hubby. Just said a prayer for him and I will continue to do so. It is times like this that we need to have a lot of patience...especially when it comes to waiting to get in to see a specialist. I have been down that road many times with my hubby too. As you have probably figured out by now, it's all about finding the right intelligent Dr. who can truly diagnose properly and get right on it to treat him. Wishing your hubby & you the VERY best. <3

                    *hugs* and loads of thanks for your kind words and prayers! I really appreciate you all! <3

                    Max (hubby) saw the GI doc this past Tuesday and he sent him for another X-ray, wanted to see a copy of the scan results he had done (which I faxed to him) and has scheduled Max for a colonoscopy (which hubby is not looking forward to) this coming Tuesday (the 1st) Praying this is the beginning of getting definitive answers and treatment even if it's just confirmation of the diverticulosis and continued flare ups? Since his meds cause him to have a *very* slow system and such, the doc decided to start his 'prep' for the procedure a whole week out as opposed to doing just the usual Rx bowel prep the night before (which he still has to do) so hubby has not been having a great week at all!

                    Our youngest son, Gabe, celebrated his 12th bday on the 25th and has been keeping me busy with 'bday week fun' as well

                    Sadly, we have had another heartbreaking development in our 'extended' family this week as well... my sister's MIL (who is like family anyway as our families have known each other forever ..my Mom grew up with her and her siblings) suffered a stroke and it ended up with a 'brain bleed' ...she is currently in the hospital being kept sedated and comfortable while the 'waiting game' continues... it's so very much like the way it happened with my Daddy almost 2 1/2 years ago that my heart aches knowing how this journey is likely to end and how difficult the decisions her children will have to face in the coming days will be And it's all bringing back vividly those last 2 weeks my Daddy had here on this Earth that it makes it all the more painful.

                    So in many ways this week has been filled with ups and downs and emotionally exhausting for us... I'm so thankful for my BBU family! Knowing you all are here and care means a lot to me! <3 So thanks for listening to (or rather reading) another long post of mine

                      Thinking of you today. Hope your hubby's procedure went well yesterday and you'll know for sure if it was the diverticulosis causing his problems.

                      BBFanShan- Sorry your family is going through so much. Thinking about you and hope the doctors give you some answers on your husband.

                          • As much as I'm trying to make myself happy and trying to enjoy BBOTT tonight, just want to say how sad I really am tonight. At this time one year ago I (along with my dad) was on my way home (thinking my mom was stable) after leaving my mom at the hospital when we received a call that we needed to turn around and come back quickly as my mom had taken an even more turn for the worse. The whole family was gathered in her room in the ICU until she passed at 2:07 AM ET, November 1, 2015. LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH, MOM!!! Can't believe you've been gone for a whole year now!! It seems like yesterday I was in that hospital room hoping you'd be coming back home.
