On  the  1st of October, Val  (my wife ) was rushed to the hospital , coughing up  a lot of blood .   2 days later they transferred her to a hospital 2 towns away . She has since had 2  surgical procedures  to try and stop the bleeding from her lungs . Both procedures  went “well”. But we have had a few scares since . Still signs of blood coming up,   but  a lot less . and hopefully  just  just leftover from the procedures .  She also developed a large  hematoma in her leg. etc etc etc ...

Needles to say ..  I have been scared shitless since . Shes is still in the hospital.

 Anxiety is off the charts . and this  up and down good news / bad news  is killing  me . I honestly think Val is dealing with it better than me .  She is a trooper  that’s for  sure . Please keep her  in  your  thoughts and   we will take any good vibes you have to send .

Needles to say, I am glad for the update, worried about you two and putting you both in my prayers.  

Sincere prayers for you and for your Sweetie. 

Awesome to hear Val's doing better. Hoping for more good news soon! 

Sending our love from the Reilly clan can’t imagine how your feeling Pick . 

Thoughts and prayers, man.

Hi, I hope all comes out well for your wife. I know how you feel as my wife went through serious lung surgery last year. A very stressful time for all.

Good luck Taff

Thank  you ALL  for the uplifting comments . Val is doing much better  with no signs of fresh  bleeding , and seems to be on the road to recovery . 

Sending prayers and positive thoughts your way.

Still praying for both of you Pick. Keep strong, this too shall pass.

Just seen this thread.  I'm sorry that Val has had such a tough time but am glad that she is now recoevering. I wish you both the very best and my thoughts are with you.
