« on: April 20, 2016, 12:11:14 PM »
I just got word from my cousin Stephanie that Carol Reid is in the hospital. I haven't talked to Bill to get any details, but wanted to let everyone know,so we can keep her in our thoughts and prayers, and wish her the best. Carol is the sweetiest of ladies, and she and Bill are both very close friends to our prospecting family. Wishing her a speedy recovery. Don.

Thank you Don,

Carol has had several small strokes and has lost the use of her left side. They found she has 90% blockage of the carotid artery on the right side of her neck which they say may be causing the strokes. She also has a 5.5 cm aneurism on her abdominal aorta and narrowing (stenosis) of the renal artery on her right kidney. She has been running a very high blood pressure along with these sometimes as high as 280/140. She needs all the prayers and support you can give her right now. She is in Erlanger in Chattanooga room 9140 if anyone wants to drop by I'm sure she would be glad to see you and I know I would. I'm sorry to say our Gold Fairy won't be at the Kid's Day this year.

Thank you all,
Bill

Carol and Bill:

I am so sorry to hear about Carol's condition. Sounds like the doctors are doing their best for Carol.
My father went through a similar situation.
Place your faith in God to bring you both through these difficult times.
You and your family are in my prayers.

Please keep us updated.

God bless.

Update,
Carol will have surgery to clear her carotid artery on Monday, then they will decide about the anuerism and stenosis. She is in good spirits and just wants this over so she can get back to gold hunting. They have already started some therapy or rehab for her left side but she will have a long road ahead. She wants me to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and I thank you too.

Bill

Carol's surgery is now tuesday. She will spend that night in ICU and if no complications will be sent home on  wednesday. They will only do the carotid this trip. Thank you all for your prayers!

Carol's surgery went very well. She is in ICU but is supposed to be released tomorrow. Then we start her rehab for the stroke. We still have a long road ahead but hopefully the worst is behind us. They will continue to monitor the aneurism on her aorta but said it is not a major concern right now and will look at repairing it in about a month. Carol and I both want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers which have gone a long way in helping us get through this

Carol is now home! Maybe now the two of us can get some much needed rest then on with the next stage.

Thank you Lord for the restoration you are doing in their lives continue I pray to heal her and correct the symptoms of the strokes. Return to her Lord, full usage of the weakened side and allow her strength to return so that both her left and right side work equally well as intended in Jesus Name
my videos on youtube are under Pastor sam and Victoria. I have several playlist so look at the prospecting list for some goofy prospecting vids, Be blessed, and enjoy!
