KnockItOff, also known as Judi, had to go into the hospital last night due to pains in her abdomen. Tests concluded that she has a severe amount of toxins built up in her liver. She also has another serious issue, more private, to deal with at the hospital, which I am not at liberty to discuss (I will leave that up to her). I am not sure at this point how long she will be hospitalized. If you could keep her in your thoughts and prayers for good health and a speedy recovery, she & her family would truly appreciate it. I am going to see her today, and will update you on her condition. Thanks very much. Eric [size=2][blue]Judi replied on page 2[/blue][/size=2]

Heavenly Father, I pray that you would be with Judi in her time of illness, that you would reach down and touch her with your Almighty hand, cure her illness and sooth her soul. Guide and direct her physicians and the nurses attending her needs. In Jesus's most precious name I pray, Amen.

I hope everything turns out OK. Tyler, I have Judi's contact #'s...do you think she would be up to receiving a phone call from me?[:o)]

Judi will be in my prayers.
Link Posted: 2/17/2002 11:25:28 AM EDT
Judi had surgery and is doing much better. She thanks all of you very much for your thoughts & prayers. Hopefully she will be out of the hospital in a week or so, so she can thank you herself. She wants to update you guys on a couple of things... FWIW... Judi is a really cool pro-gun conservative 23 year old girl. She has a lot to learn about firearms, but I am helping her out when I can. [:)] I have known he for just over a year, and she is one of my best friends. Yeah, I already have a girlfriend (Heather). Some of you guys wonder where those smart, single, decent, good looking, pro-gun chics are... well, there's one right here (heehee... this is not an ADVERTISEMENT - just the truth)! Thanks again to all of you! Eric

I am sure she would love to hear from you guys. She doesn't post a whole lot (shy), but she loves to read our crazy rants/polls in GD, and our photoshop threads! [:D] Feel free to call. [b](765) 447-6811[/b] That is the number for the Hospital. Just ask for room # [b]5724[/b], and she should answer. [blue]Edited to change room #[/blue]

Ahhh... Finally!! I get to sit in front of my computer!!! I know that Eric passed along my thanks, but I wanted to personally let all of you know that your thoughts and prayers were greatly appreciated. And, if all of you don't mind, I wish to ask that you keep my new son in your prayers. He was born on the 16th, 10 weeks prematurely. I developed toxemia, and my liver enzyme and blood platelet counts were completely abnormal. The only thing to do to get me better and to keep my baby out of danger was to do an emergency C-section. Isaac Alexander weighed 2 pounds 11.5 ounces and was 15.75 inches long. He still needs the aid of a respirator to breathe. I learned yesterday that his kidneys are distended and that he has a heart murmur. As the parent of a baby in the NICU, I get to stay at a room in the hospital (room #5724) as long as one is available for me. (I really just couldn't bear to be away from the hospital cafeteria.) I get to see Isaac several times every day and fight back tears as I hold his little hand and pray that he gets stronger just so that I can finally get to hold him. Please pray that I continue to have the strength to keep myself from coming unglued and that my son gets stronger and closer to coming home. Thanks again, Judi

Judi, my thoughts are with you and yours. God bless. T.
Link Posted: 2/23/2002 3:19:31 PM EDT
Glad you're doing better, and best wishes for Isaac. Speaking as a fellow preemie, the heart murmur is probably not a big deal. I was told that they are common in early deliveries. I had a severe murmur from a VSD when I was born (they almost did open-heart surgery, but the coin flip said no), and it was noticeable until I was at least in my late teens. I didn't bother much with physicians in my 20's, but at about 33 I went in to talk to my doc about a pilot's license physical; he did a thorough cardiac exam, and there was no sign of a murmur any more. Nothing, nada, zip. The only restrictions I've ever had were that (1) the military wouldn't touch me at 18 because it was still quite noticeable then, and (2) every time I went to a dentist (or had any other medical procedure done that involved any cutting or bleeding) they made me take antibiotics to reduce the risk of "bacterial endocarditis". Not a big deal. The respirator is unpleasant, but they do the trick. Don't fret too much, he should be off it in a few weeks. It's a lot better than the older methods they used way back when. As for his small size, doll clothes worked well for me. Just don't put him in any Barbie outfits -- try Ken, or maybe GI Joe, unless you want him to grow up to be a ballet dancer or figure skater.

Our gracious and loving Heavenly Father, keep our sister Judi and her blessed Isaac Alexander safe and secure in the Palm of Your Hand. Pull up a hedge of safekeeping around them, and continue to bless them and those who minister unto them. Let these requests be bound in Heaven as on earth, while we pray in Jesus' most Holy Name, Amen. Eric The(CanWeAgreeOnThisMyFellowPrayerWarriors?)H­un[>]:)]

I went to see a friend's healthy two year old girl a couple months a go. She was born so premature she could fit in a large hand!! Thank God for the technology he has given us. We have your phone # and room # we know where you are!! Get Well Soon or we'll find you and make you do it! and you will like it!![stick][:D] Doug

Hi Judi. I am very happy to hear that you and your new son Isaac Alexander are ok. May God bless you both and we all hope to hear from you soon. Steven

It was nice talking to you again, no thanks to Eric who gave me the wrong #! Take care, I'm sure everything will be fine and if there is anything you need do not hesitate to ask! Ray

Every day brings good news and bad news. Isaac's heart murmur has closed, but he now has an infection (in his blood and spinal fluid) and is retaining fluids. He's being given LOTS of antibiotics and is slowly improving. I'm doing well. I'm getting plenty of exercise running back and forth from my room to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit! I'm very fortunate to have buddies that will spring me from the hospital so that I can get some fresh air - even though it is cold and snowy. It's too bad, though, that I must suffer through vicious pit bull attacks to use Eric's computer. :o) Thanks again to everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Isaac and me. If all goes well, I may be able to meet some of you at the Black Rifle Convention. Ray - The room number that you were given would have worked if you had called right away. :o) I'd only been in four different rooms in five days. Thanks again! Judi

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your son. Our neighbors had a baby last summer around two plus months early and she is perfectly healthy and happy. I believe the mother had the same condition as you experienced. I certainly don't mean to minimize what you're going through (I have a little girl and my heart breaks whenever she gets hurt), but as many others here, want to let you know that this will hopefully turn out okay. Please keep us updated! May God bless and speed you and your son to health!

Best thing you can do is be there, touch and feed him. Many parents are put off by the medical hardware, but the direct contact seems to help them grow faster, parent and child bond better, just a win-win thing. The nursing staff will go the extra mile, too. Most of them love kids a lot (or they wouldn't be there), and a mom with a preemie seems to turn them to mush. I still remember a kid that weighed well under 2 pounds, and how happy the mom was when the baby hit 5 pounds and they could take her home. She sent me Christmas cards for years, until we lost touch when I moved.
