Donnalynn,

I'm so sorry you are both going through all this. Do you have any friends or family that could help out, especially one that's a nurse? How terrible a situation to be put in. I have you on our church prayer list and we'll all be praying for Jim.

Hang in there.

 You can cry all you need to, and we will pray all the prayers needed to give you the strength and peace that are necessary.  Know that we are with you during the small hours.

Praying for strength for you Donnalynn, and for the clot to dissolve peacefully.
Do you have home health nurses who can come and check on him, draw blood? He needs that, especially since he can't be walking on the leg.
I'd be there in a heartbeat. How scary for you-  Hang in there, I'm so sorry you have to be going through yet another ordeal.

Is that next Friday as in the 10th? You can check with the office and check wthether they keep a cancellation list, and ask that Jim be put on it to possibly get in sooner.

In the meantime, I pray that Jim gets relief from the pain and that both of you are given peace to wait during this difficult time.

Love from Missouri.
