Benjamin

05 Aug

Over the last few months and posts I have spoken of my three children, Ben, Michael and Jennifer, they have all presented me with three beautiful grandchildren, all within a few weeks and months of each other, beautiful babies called Shaylie Mai, Cameron Michael and William Roger.

This picture is of my son Benjamin and his son, my grandson William.

Last Friday Ben was admitted to hospital for the removal of a large tennis ball sized growth from his kidney, a problem he was unaware of until a routine check up, he underwent surgery on Saturday and the tumour was removed as was his Kidney, the operation took longer than normal as he developed internal bleeding.The doctors believe they have removed it all at this stage but the tumour has been sent for biopsy.We spent the night prior of the op with Ben and his partner Lisa. Saturday we never visited as most of the day Ben was undergoing pre,op and later, in post op and intensive care, he is under pain killers and fluctuating in and out of sleep. He is on the mend and will recover quite well.

Ben will recover and enjoy life with his son, Ben is 33 years of age. Any prayers you have left over tonight would be much appreciated

We now await the results of the biopsy.

Cheers and keep smiling

Aussie Emu

      Hi Robin, thanks for the lovely visit and comment, all is going well for my family here, Benjamin recovered and appears to be clear of any long term illness, has only one kidney but a price to pay for recovering. We had a lovely Christmas with the family and Grandchildren, hope yours was just as successful and beautiful.
      Kind regards till the new year.

      Thank you for your kind comments dear Sudiste, yes it has been a sad and eventful time for my family
      all has calmed down now, Ben is recovering gradually but will be sore for a long time.
      You must be very excited still over your wedding, I wish you much love and happiness for the future

      Hi Cat , lovely to find your pic back in my space, thanks for your caring thoughts on my son Ben , he is recovering well, it was a vicious cancer tumour that they believe they have all got , he will be having tests every three months, sadly a week later his mother passed away, my first wife of 24 years, was hard on my two sons and daughter, returned home and followed it up with a funeral for my brother in law, so overall Cat its been a shit of a month, thats why I headed bush for some breathing space, all back to normal now, beer supply is in and shit on the Television so I feel warm and toasty and happy.
      Cheers girl and keep smiling for the old Lizard

    What a handsome son and good looking grandson, Ian. Congratulations on the growing family. Also, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family and especially to Ben and for a speedy recovery. I am glad they found it and that surgery was done. I have five adult children and my youngest son is the same age as your Ben so I quite understand the worry of a parent. Again, I keep you in my heart and hope Ben has a good recovery and that all turns out well.

    Emu, Ian, You have my own most sincere Healing prayers and thoughts my friend, They are added to the Healing Grid. You know without doubt how much power I put in that intention.
    And I will also add this for Benjamin…
    And as I say my usual thoughts with healing for names I have within my healing book who are in need of healing I will be adding these words tonight..

    Sweet Angels gather around my bed
    Please take up the names I have said.
    For healing thoughts tonight I’ve given
    Send them swiftly back to heaven.

    So that a host of healing love
    Can shower down from those above
    To those names my prayers beseach
    Bring love and comfort that they seek

    Bring your Healing from this hour
    To Benjamin with love and power
    And Let him know we all send
    The healing thoughts with power to mend

    Wishing him a speedy recovery Ian, My heartfelt thoughts are with you all..
    Love Sue x
