UPDATE ON BEN’S HEALTH–8/15/15


Blessings to all!  I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been dealing with sinus/flu, etc. Ben is to have a Colonoscopy this coming Thursday (Aug. 20th, 2015). UGH! Please pray with us that all goes well for him. He has had problems that require such a procedure…so at his age (53)…it needs to be done. Also, he’s had increasing tremors in his arms when he raises them to hold or pour something.  So, they’ve put him on 120 mg of Propanolol daily (up from 80 mg) to hopefully help decrease that involuntary impulse. Age and medications are beginning to take their toll on him. We’re praying and thanking  God that His mercies will prevail in Ben’s behalf!  

Update–2/5/2016–Ben cooperated fully with the “prep”–got along fine with the colonoscopy, and the report was GOOD!  Thanks so much for your prayers.  Thankfully, he “chug-a-lugs” whatever you give him to drink. I never dreamed that would be a blessing-Ha!  When he was home at Christmas, the tremor in his arms/hands was still there, but not as noticeable, so that was good too!
