Thank you so much everyone, bear with me as I am pretty drugged up. I have been battling pneumonia for about 3 weeks now and have been in unbearable pain. I went to thte doc and they found some very badly infected fluid surrounding my lungs. We have drained about 3 liters of very nasty stuff and I have  tube in my back.  It is very difficult and we are getting throgh it.

Again, thanks for your wishes and offers, most of all thank you Randy for tking care of Renee today with her car.

They have wireless here, if anyone needs to reaxh me I am at rose rm524

Jay, I am headed back and forth to work this weekend and will be running by Rose each way....let me know if you need something dropped off, etc.

Chest tubes are seriously nasty, hope the fluid accumulation slows soon and you can get that out of your back.

I will keep my eyes on this and if you are still in at the beginning of the week, I will stop by and check up on you. :)  Make sure they are taking good care of you and all that, hehe.

Jay - Rose is down the street from me so let me know if I can do anything for you.  I will keep you in my prayers and wish you a speedy recovery.

take care
Rob

Both Carla and I have you in our prayers.  We both wish for a speedy recovery for you and if either you or Renee need anything let us know.

If you are up to it and are able to, could we stop by and visit?  I do not want to make you fell uncomfortable but friends can help in recovering.

Man Jay- that really sucks. Let us know if you need anything. Tube in your back?! Wow. That's horrible, although it does bring up Matrix images.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: jfrahm on December 08, 2006, 10:10:21 AM
Wow that sucks!  I had it as a kid, all I remember is freezing in this oxygen tent for days.  No tubes though.  That does not sound like fun.

Get well soon!  Let us know if we can do anything.

Post by: 92UrS4 on December 08, 2006, 06:14:17 PM
Thanks again everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I had another procedure today to move this chest tube in my back. Once again I am pretty drugged up. I should be here until at least Sunday. If you do want to stop by you are more than welcome, but I will warn you, it is very boring.

I am in room 524 at rose hospital, the number here is 303-320-2524.

Everyone have a nice weekend.

Post by: 03Indigo on December 09, 2006, 02:19:31 AM
I will see how work goes, if I can get out on time, I will either stop by in the morning, or try to stop by Saturday night on my way to work.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 92UrS4 on December 10, 2006, 09:35:18 PM
All -

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts. Tomorrow will be the big day where I find out what the bug is so they can go after it properly. It is slow moving so it has taken a long time to grow and pinpoint. My CT scan showed some improvement, about a 25% reduction in the mass behind my lower right lung.  While it is good news it is not great news.

I do feel better now than I did 4 days ago, that's for sure. I am also on morphine at the moment so that helps.

Thanks Dave for your visit las night, it really meant a lot. Renee and I are pretty much secluded here so it's nice to have a friendly face come by.

At this point I don't imagine getting out tomorrow unless some serious drainage occurs.  The docs will basically make a call to either put in a bigger tube or go into surgery.  I believe they are trying to avoid the surgery option as much as possible.

I am totally beat down and feel very small. I am a bit depressed and really want out of here. When I do leave I get to look forward to have a pick up put in my arm (extra long IV thing) and two weeks of IV antibiotics at home. My December and Christmas are basically shot.

Please take good care of yourselves and your families. This can happen to anyone, not just someone with a weak immune system.

Thanks again.

Jay

Jay, you are certainly in our thoughts.  It was almost 2 years ago now when our oldest daughter was hospitalized with a nasty infection that found its way into the SI joint in her back.  it never did get big enough to do surgery or to drain it, but it also didn't have the circulation to really let the anti-biotics work well.  therefore she spent 10 days in the hospital before they let us bring her home, then another 6 weeks walking around with a central line and IV anti-biotics.   :cry:   That sucked.

From that experience, I understand what you are going through.  I do hope things improve for you soon.

Keep us posted on your progress!
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: SweetVW on December 10, 2006, 10:24:05 PM
Any time Jay.  :) I too really enjoyed seeing you and Renee.

Please keep us up to date on how things are going.  I would be more than happy to stop by with anything you need.  Take care bud and I will talk to you later.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: jayryan on December 11, 2006, 07:53:32 AM
Hey Jay, that is good news. I just hope there's no surgery involved. I'd really like to come by at some point...not sure when though. Take it easy and let me know if there's anythign interesting going in Days of our Lives. :wink:
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 92UrS4 on December 11, 2006, 04:57:16 PM
i will be having surgery tomorrow, please say a prayer if you can
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: gragravar on December 11, 2006, 05:16:16 PM
best of luck tomorrow Jay.  we'll be thinking about you.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: Spicoli on December 11, 2006, 07:02:08 PM
yeah, best of luck to you.  I can't believe you have to have surgery.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on December 11, 2006, 08:04:53 PM
Jay, I am going to try to stop by early in the morning....between 8-9am.  If you know you are having surgery early, drop me a line and I will come by later in the afternoon.  If I get there and you are gone, I will leave a note for you and some stuff for you to pass the time of day :)

best of luck tomorrow, and if there is anything you need or you just want to chat about stuff, give me a call.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: ColoradoB5 on December 11, 2006, 08:37:22 PM
Jay!  I just saw this.  I didn't know you were sick.  Did the doctors find out anything more about what you have?

Best of luck in the surgery.  Jen and I will be saying our prayers for you too.  Jen especially knows what you are going through.  She was in Denver General when she was 22 for a spontaneous pneumothorax.  19 day, without morphine.  Ouch!

I hope you have a speedy recovery.  If I were in town I would come wish you luck and give you my good luck surgery watch.  They make me take it off, but the thought is there.  I have had a few myself.  Think STRONG thoughts and battle back buddy!

hey Jay,
haven't been here for a while, this news came as a late surprise.  I hope everything goes well and nothing serious.

Enjoy the drugs, rest up well, hope you're back to 100% very soon!
Wishing you and Renee the best.

Hey Jay,

I haven't been around much either. Just saw this and wanted to wish you well. Surgery is never fun. Hope all goes smooth and you have a speedy recovery. Thoughts to you and Renee.

Get well, get well soon, we hope you do get well!

Megan and I are wishing you all our best.  Hope everything goes well today.  If you need anything at all, let us know (along with everyone else ;) )

GET BETTER JAY :cry:

Post by: 03Indigo on December 12, 2006, 11:16:36 AM
Just got back from visiting Jay...he looks good, but definitely tired and in some serious discomfort.  Sounds like surgery is going to be this evening, some time after 5pm.

I do know one thing he needs.....he needs his new S washed up.  Sounds like it is full of bugs and sand from his trip to NM.  I say we try to pull together a detail day on his behalf and get that S looking like NEW!!!!!
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: SweetVW on December 12, 2006, 11:28:50 AM
I bring the Porter and a pair of hands!  Actually I believe he has the polish and wax already.  This should be fun!  :D

I'm in.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on December 12, 2006, 11:31:36 AM
my only problem is I can't help on the weekends unless it is December 24th in the afternoon, that is the only weekend day I have off this year.

I also have a bunch of exterior stuff and a PC with new pads.  We can also do the interior, I have interior plastic care and leather care products....and a butt load of micro fiber towels.  We should also clay bar his car....I have stuff for that as well.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: gragravar on December 12, 2006, 11:33:01 AM
I'd be up for that.  I know it is a drive for most of you to get up here, but I'd even offer up the garage and driveway space.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on December 12, 2006, 11:33:52 AM
I think it would be best to detail his car at his house so we don't have to transport it....unless he lets me drive it up there :twisted:

24th is out for me, but I am off work the entire week between christmas and new years and could do something during the week one of those days.

Has anyone heard from Jay?  I would like to know if things went well with the surgery.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on December 13, 2006, 06:25:18 PM
I have not heard from him....he does not have his laptop there all the time, so he is not just sitting there online.

I am pretty sure I will go for a visit tomorrow, although, I am still feeling pretty sick right now, so I may not go.  I would hate to compound infections by passing something on to him.

If nothing else, I will call him tomorrow to check in.

Hey Jay, I just heard from Winston that you've been under the weather.  I really hope you're starting to feel better. (and when did you get an S4? nice!)
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on December 14, 2006, 04:09:30 PM
Just heard from Pat who visited Jay....says he is doing well after surgery and on the road to recovery.

Still keeping my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery, but nice to hear some good news.  I did not visit today due to my cold being worse and not wanting to spread it on to him.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!

Get well Jay!  Does anyone know if his cars or bike need anything?  Fork rebuild, vacuum lines, etc?

ha, ha, we should 'pimp his ride'!!!

Purple and green paint job, and some 20" chromies!
Glad to hear he's doing well.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!

:lol:   We can get warmed up and get some ideas on this ride pimper game (http://www.mtv.com/onair/pimp_my_ride/game/play/)!

Here is a quickie that I did. (http://www.mtv.com/onair/pimp_my_ride/game/play/?c=1&e=33,0,0,28,0,0,0,0,0,0,/1/1/4)

Just spoke with Jay on the phone, he is doing really well.  He is off IV pain killers and just taking them by mouth now.  From my experience, sounds like he is recovering quite well.

They are supposed to pull one of his 2 chest tubes sometime today, and then evaluate as to when they can remove the second tube.  

Keeping my fingers crossed that he can be discharged sometime early next week, in time to enjoy the holidays.
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: ColoradoB5 on December 15, 2006, 11:55:59 AM
Yay!  Once the tubes come out, he has the end in sight.  Best of luck Jay, we are all praying for you!

oh yeah, I forgot, he was moved to room 642 after surgery and 12 hours in the ICU.

Get well soon....
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: gragravar on December 15, 2006, 06:13:12 PM
glad to hear things are looking up.

that last chest tube could be for the IV anti-biotics and may have to stay in for a while.

continued best wishes Jay!
Title: Re: GET WELL JAY!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on December 15, 2006, 06:47:32 PM
no, the chest tube is only for drainage...he has a PICC line for his antibiotics now, which are only once a day.
