    I found out the results today.I found out that my gall bladder is pretty much non functioning so its gotta come out.I go see a surgeon next Friday.
    I have to have an MRI tomorrow on my shoulder.He thinks its something with my rotator cuff. I tell you,when it rains it pours!!!
    All the other tests were pretty good except I have severe acid reflux.They want to do an endoscopy also to check for ulcers.The Dr said when my gall bladder comes out I'll feel a thousand times better.I hope so!!!

    I am continuing to pray for you Buddy, hopefully before catfishing gets into full swing they will have you all fixed. Let us know when your gonna have the surgery. Cant they give you cortizone for the rotator cuff problem? My wife had bascially the same thing, they gave her shots of cortizone and it helped a lot.

    John,

    Thanks for the update, brother! Seems like alot of folks have gall bladder attacks for ages before they know that's the trouble. It's good news that the problem's been diagnosed and I'm just trusting that you're gonna feel great real soon!
    Hopefully the shoulder pain will be resolved, too... those cortisone shots Steve mentioned would be well worth it, sounds like.
    Prayers continuing.

    Carolyn

    I've had them before for my neck.I may try them but they didn't help my neck any.My Dr finally broke down and gave me a cpl months of pain meds.He could tell it was about to kill me!
    Thanks for all the Prayers! They are appreciated very much!

    Hang in there John!! I don't think it's too big of a deal. ( easy for me to say)
    My 82 year old mom made it through fine and I think you will too!
    We are still prayin' for you, and your family.

    John, good luck with the gall bladder surgery and will hope there is no ulcer.
    Seems you are getting hit with a load.

    I can relate to a bleeding ulcer and several endoscopes.

    I'm still rooting for Florida - Ohio State in final and Ohio State to win. Seriously my friend all our thoughts and prayers will be with you throughout your surgery, and other test. Oh ya don't throw that shoulder out when Ohio State wins, hang in there you will have brighter days.

    Prayers from Arkansas. Trust me you will feel a whole lot better after the Gallbladder is removed and it should help with the acid reflux. I was 13 when they removed mine. And never had a problem since. And good luck with the shoulder too. Keep us updated.

    I had the MRI on my shoulder yesterday.I have no idea when i'll know the results.My Dr is out all next week.I guess i'll have to wait until the following week to find out. This is killing me...I've gotta go fishing soon!!!

    The word says God gives wisdom to those who ask.I pray for the Doctors to have wisdom,and the healing power of God to work through them.For peace to fall on you and your love ones while Gods healing takes hold of your mortal body,in Jesus name.
