This is just getting out of hand...Barry's passing, JohnNJ's situation, another cruise friend lost her husband a few weeks ago VERY unexpectedly, our losses of both Connie’s this past summer and now Korina's John. Plus they've been through so much already. So, please keep John and Korina in your prayers. With the stress they’ve been under lately I guess it was bound to happen…..but it really sucks.

Oh my goodness, I certainly hope and pray this is nothing more than stress due to his job situation. I know the poor guy must worry so much and has tried so hard to get a job. I will look here for better news this afternoon when I get home. (((HUGS))) to both John and Korina and I hope they are both back home and resting by the end of the day. :sunny:

oh know how awful. I hope his tests continue to come back ok & they get everything straightened out. Stress can do alot of things to the body.
Prayers & good thoughts are on the way to both John & Korina.

How awful for Korina and John. They have been through so much the last few months -- and now this.

Prayers for both them that all will be well.

I'm sorry to read this about John. Sending good thoughts his way! Hang in there Korina.......I'm sure he is going to be fine. That's great that the kids are there, I know that helps.

Denise, thanks for the news. But, you are right........ENOUGH! For At least 2 weeks now, it's been nothing but BAD NEWS!

So sorry to hear of this turn of events for 2 people who have been thru so much; another bump in the road that they just don't need right now. Hope it is nothing serious & they can get the BP under control. And this certainly isn't going to help Korina's BP. Positive thoughts that he will be well & back home with Korina soon.

Oh, no....I am joining you all in sending GOOD THOUGHTS to John that it is nothing too serious and of course to Korina also. Keeping my fingers crossed that the next "update" is good news.

So sorry to read this. I hope it is nothing serious. They have been thru so much and don't need this added.

Denise, you are right, it has been very rough on so many of our addict friends. I

So sorry to hear about this bump in the road - listen to the doctors - they know best - - rest is the best healer too.

Take care and pm or post if you need to vent or chat!

Oh Korina...I cannot tell you how sorry I am to read all this. Poor John! I will keep him in my prayers and hope that the next report is much better. Perhaps his body is just screaming "Enough already!" A warning that should be heeded. Perhaps a good going over by physicians and a little enforced rest is exactly what's needed!

Hugs to you girl! Don't forget that you need to take care of you too!!!


Awaiting results of mental evaluation
SunFlower has been following this through FaceBook messages. You know our hearts go out to you. Hoping and praying that this too will pass. Not going to call as figure that's the last thng he needs right now. Better he should get some rewst and lessen the stress to his systems ... Prayers continue.
