Here's the promised update. The news is good! Joseph aka Jack is home
and seems to be doing fine.
Thanks to all who helped and healing vibes to you or anyone you know
who needs them.
I would like to add a thank you to each of you who responded by email
to me. The first day I tried to respond to each of you individually but
could not keep up with the flow. I visualized all those healing thoughts
and prayers as coming from all over the world and converging on the
hospital in Houston. Powerful image! Now I imagine him and his family
frolicking on the beach, and finding wonderful shells, here in Belize
again, all in good health.
Only on one list did a couple of people see fit to flame me, though I
suppose others are annoyed and to you I apologize.
Below are Joseph/Jack's grandmother's comments:
Joseph/Jack's family is feeling Blessed and happy.
Joseph/Jack had his kidney procedure late on the 5th, his Doctor had
great eyes and ability. Doctor found the bleed in the posterior of the
left kidney and was able to seal the bleed with a Laser. Doctor said
this could be a short term fix, or it could hold. If the kidney starts
bleeding again, the location has been located and another more permanent
procedure can be done, if or when needed.
We all cheered and danced when Joseph/Jack finally on the 6th had clean
clear urine, for the first time in 5 years. The Laser sealing is still
holding, and we have faith it will hold for a very long time.
Joseph/Jack is one strong trooper, his procedure was delayed 3 hrs due to
number of difficult cases before him. He slept calmly with a IV during
the waiting time.
Joseph/Jack was is severe pain after the procedure, but the Doctors had
good drugs to control the pain fairly well for him. He was so sweet and
nice in recovery, always thanking the nurse for his help.
Amazing while we were waiting for his urine output, we had a view of
beautiful tall columns like stair steps high in the sky way across the
street, with streams of clear water falls down each column, and our
Joseph/Jack had his own clear stream of urine, and we all felt like
climbing those steps in thanks to heaven and all the great people that
sent up good prayers for Joseph/Jack.
Joseph/Jack carried with him a many good charms, one being a 25 cent coin
For you that read of Gramma's answer/gift of shells on the beach, the
Doctor used so many medical terms to describe what he did, but did say
with his finger tips together, the kidney is like a shell (Gramma
smiled). Then in our room the soap dish was a ceramic fan shell
shape............hm a pause of deep thought, and warm fuzzy feeling.
We are truly Blessed, to have great people around the world, helping us
with prayers and good positive thoughts and feelings.
Many thanks to our Belize Jude for getting the request out to so many
One relieved Gramma
