Hi guys - I just read this on TUG and since I did not see a post here, I wanted to share it with you all. Greg has been so helpful to many of us and we need to remember him and Joyce in our prayers.

Maybe some of you live in San Diego and can check on him.

I left a post on TUG earlier but would like to add that I am keeping them in my thoughts and prayers. It is apparent how very much he loves Joyce.

Greg was in Puerto Vallarta. How sad that this had to happen while they were on vacation. I hope that his wife will recover soon and that Greg will take care of himself.

May his wife recover quickly. It's also important for Greg to maintain his strength and health during this time. My thoughts and prayers will be with them.

Hi all, finally got interent access,
last Wednesday morning Joyce woke up having trouble breathing, we called the Dr and he took one look at her and said we need to get to the hospital NOW!!
He and some of the resort staff help load Joyce into his suv and her drove like a man possessed to Coorner Stone Hospital, where the took her into the er immediatly.
The did cpr and put her on a ventolator, and treated her for a plumanary clot.
On Saturday morning they flew us out via air ambulance to San Diego, and took us to Scripps Mercy hospital.
She is getting better, they have ruled out the clot idea, her heart looks good, they told me today that she is having a serious COPD event, and that we will be here a while before she comes of the vent.

Our oldest daugher will be arriving in a hour or so, will be nice, this has only been a week, it seems like months.

I am trying to eat and get sleep, I will be ok, a few pounds lighter, not a weight loss program I can recommend.

Thank you all for you wishes and prayers, I will try o keep current on updates,

Thanks for posting Phyllis,

Oh Greg, how scary. Hope she gets better soon and take care of yourself!! shaggy

Oh, I cannot truly express how I feel for you all...I am grateful that you got help quickly and that you have been able to get to the US so quickly. I am sending you and your DW my very best wishes and hopes that this will all come to a very happy outcome. You have been so great to all of the folks here, and if there is ever any way we can help you, please, let us know. My thoughts are with you and my best wishes are sent to you both.

It is scary enough to have to deal with a medical emergency when you are alone and doubley so in a foreign country.

I am glad to hear it was not a pulmonary embolism and that they will soon be weaning her off the vent.
My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Wishing your wife a speedy recovery. Please take care of yourself, too. Sending a hug and prayer! :hug:

So glad that you are doing better. It sounds like the team in Mexico was pretty attentive and took the situation seriously right off the bat. That 's good to know.

Hi all, Joyce came off the ventilator early Friday, and is breathing on her own, she is out of ICU and they expect we can take her home in another week or so, thanks so much for your prayers and good wishes.

I am home now to take care of some business and my pre-op for my bladder stone removal, but I will be flying down on the 1st and stay there until they let me take my sweety :hug: home.


03-29-2010, 01:18 PM
That's wonderful news. When it rains, it pours - you have your own health issues. I hope things progess well for you both.


03-29-2010, 01:25 PM
I'm happy to hear she is doing better and will get to go home soon.

03-29-2010, 04:10 PM
May both of you get better soon.

03-29-2010, 06:58 PM
Glad to hear of the improvement.

I bet you both can not wait to get home to your own bed!

03-29-2010, 07:09 PM
Greg, hopes she is still doing better and you take some time and take care of yourself.

03-29-2010, 07:29 PM
Ouch! A bladder stone too! You poor guy....and I am happy to hear your DW is progressing and improving. Continuing to keep you both in my thoughts. Sending good wishes your way.

03-29-2010, 08:37 PM
Best wishes to both of you. :hug:

That must be really hard when both of you need medical help and I hope that you and your wife get better real soon. What a disappointment too that you had to go home from your vacation in Mexico.
