Yehuda Tzvi Ben Elisheva,
Thinking of you once again today.
Wondering how are your spirits and if you’ve had company as yet.
Have a wonderful Shabbos.September 23, 2011 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #920032
There seems to be a potential blockage in the PICC line. Please keep up the tefilos. Thank you and have a great Shabbos!September 25, 2011 1:40 am at 1:40 am #920033

Yehudah Tzvi ben Elisheva: Look and read how all of us here in the coffee room care about one another in their time of need. We are all davening for you to have a complete and immediate refuah shelama be karov Amen!
I will take upon myself to say from Perek Kuf Yud Tes from Pasuk NUN (Ner le Ragli), until Kuf Lamed Zayin inclusive.
You are going through a very hard time, but this is a nisayon that you must accept with sever panim yafos. Take each second as it comes. Your body needs to heal and if you are sleeping it should heal I’YH. To become ill, takes a second, to become better takes ages of patience, tefilla, emunah and bitachon. Try to push all negative thoughts out of your mind. Let a good friend come to visit you, let the Rav of your shul visit you, or speak to you on the phone daily. Maybe someone in your community can help your wife by starting a meal rota, so that your wife, who is your main carer, can have some more time for you, herself and the kinderlach.
I have given your name to all in the community and we are doing zechusim, bracha parties are being organized in your zechus for a complete refuah shelama be karov.
May H’KBH grant Yehuda Tzvi ben Elisheva betoch cholei Am Yisrael, a complete and immediate refuah Shelam be karov, refuas hanefesh ve refuas haguf, an abundance of HAGEFEN = hatzlacha rabbah bechol maasei yedaynu, good gezunt, good parnasa be shefa, and much yiddishe nachat, a double of yiras shamayim ve chet, menuchas hanefesh ve guf, osher with aleph and osher with ayin, shalom ve shalva, shefa brachos, may H’KBH give you much siyata dishmaya to accept with ahava all that you have, koach and gevura, and may you be able to be better than before your illness, have many simachos with simcha, may you and all Klall Yisrael be inscribed for a Kesiva ve Chasima Tova, with much need achdus between all the Yidden to bring the Geulah ve Yeshuah immediately Amen Kein Yehe Razon!!!!September 26, 2011 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #920043

I am off to the infectious disease Dr. for a check up (first once since coming home from the hospital). I will update when I return. Thanks again, everyone. I am starting to feel human again.September 27, 2011 1:05 am at 1:05 am #920047
Just back from the Infectious Disease Dr.’s.
Ugh, another two weeks on all the IV antibiotics! Guess I’ll be spending Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with an IV attached to me. But it certainly beats the alternative of going back to the hospital in excruciating pain!
I found out that my white blood cel1 count was 27,000 when I was in the hospital (normal is 4000-9000)! As of now, my pain is mostly controlled (with Percocet). I just have to contend with the PICC line, the IV infusions, the metallic taste 24/7 in my mouth and the massive fatigue. All in all, not a bad deal, considering.
I do not think, I know, that your kindness in recitinf tehillim and davening for me is helping tremendously. Thanks you all, again!September 27, 2011 1:37 am at 1:37 am #920048smile66Member

YT, I hope that the medications have now started doing their job and that you are well along in your recovery. I hope that you will be well enough to be able to enjoy a Yomtov meal with your family. It is still important to spend a lot of time resting, so don’t push yourself. My best wishes for a healthy year are with you and your loved ones. Shana Tova.October 2, 2011 6:35 am at 6:35 am #920063

Yehudah – You obviously have a chronic illness and I’m not going to ask you what it is. If you want to tell us fine, but what I want to know is how did you get a bedsore which progressed to sepsis?October 2, 2011 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #920065doodle jumpParticipant
How was your yom tov? I am thinking about you. I hope you are feeling better. IY”H you will be on the road to complete refuah and yeshua very, very soon.October 2, 2011 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #920066AlanH923Participant
I have added your name to the Rufah Shelma list on Torah.org
I would like you wish you a speedy Refuah Shelema and a G’Mar Chasima TovaOctober 2, 2011 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #920067PrincessEagleMember
YehudaTzvi i’ve been hoping you’re okay, rufah shelma, keep us posted how you are doing.October 2, 2011 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #920068
“Yehudah – You obviously have a chronic illness and I’m not going to ask you what it is. If you want to tell us fine, but what I want to know is how did you get a bedsore which progressed to sepsis?”
Long story short. I lived and worked in NY for a year. My job required extensive travel and running around. I was injured on the job but was told by two doctors that i was nothing. I finally went BACK to my Orthopedist who said I had to be admitted to the hospital IMMEDIATELY (I had a cracked femoral head, the bone that connects the leg to the hip). I had been walking around like that in excruciating pain for months. 6 hour surgery. Long recovery. Went back for a check up. surgery had failed. Moved back to LA. head or Ortho Trauma at major hospital did 8 hour surgery. Hospital mistakenly put me on the cardiac floor, not the orthopedic floor so I wasn’t moved for 48+ hours after surgery. That is how I developed a bedsore, and then sepsis. I had to have an entire debridement of my backside. Then three months later, the hardware in my led failed and I had to have another surgery to repair it. Then i got ANOTHER infection in the hospital and had to have a minor debridement of my incision site. Then, this infection…
Needless to say, this has been the worst two years of my life. Also within these two years my father (A”H) was niftar and my wife suffered a miscarriage.
But B”H this is a new year and I have high hopes that HaMelech will have rachmanus on me and my family and that all my past pain and suffering should be a kapara for not only me but all of Klal Yisroel.
My pain levels have been down and I was able to get to shul for shofar and davening. Hopefully this is a turning point and things will improve.
Without sounding preachy, PLEASE, even if you are going through tzaros, if you are healthy THANK HASHEM! If you can walk THANK HASHEM! If you are free of debilitating physical pain THANK HASHEM!
I am not on the level yet where I can thank Hashem for my pain and suffering but I know that everything He does is good and for the good.October 2, 2011 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #920069aries2756Participant
Yehuda Tzvi, your Rav probably suggested this to you, but did you check your tefillin and mezuzas?October 3, 2011 12:42 am at 12:42 am #920070
Aries2756: We did over a year ago. I have Gasos Tefilin that were checked (even though I was told they didn’t need to be) and were fine. Perhaps we need to have the mezzuzos checked again.October 3, 2011 2:14 am at 2:14 am #920071
Yehudah -“Hospital mistakenly put me on the cardiac floor, not the orthopedic floor so I wasn’t moved for 48+ hours after surgery.”
You do realize that you have two cases of negligence on your hands. I don’t know if you want to sue the first guys who missed your original diagnosis but you can. But in the second case, you definitely should. You could probably make millions. I’m not a lawyer, but I can’t stand incompetece that makes the rest of us look bad. Also, don’t go back to the doctor and hospital whom was so negligent in your care.October 3, 2011 6:43 am at 6:43 am #920072
CA passed a law that the MOST one can sue for in malpractice cases is 250,000. Most lawyers in CA don’t even bother because it’s not worth their time and expense. I have been turned down four times by four separate lawyers.October 3, 2011 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #920073minyan galMember
YT, I am so happy that you were able to get to shul. It must have felt wonderful just to be able to get out of the house – and as the outing was to shul, its a wonderful thing. I hope that you are not considering fasting on YK. If you are wavering on this decision, please, speak to your Rav and your doctor. I don’t think either of them would want you to put yourself at any risk. At this point in your recovery your body requires protein – and a lot of it.October 3, 2011 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #920074
YehudahTzvi -“CA passed a law that the MOST one can sue for in malpractice cases is 250,000. Most lawyers in CA don’t even bother because it’s not worth their time and expense. I have been turned down four times by four separate lawyers.”
You can sue the first guys in NY. Also, even in CA you can pay the lawyers to take your case, if they won’t do it on consignment. Most take between $200 -400 per hour. This would end up costing at the most $35,000 for a case like this. If this is a lot, I’m sure if you offer a lawyer $10,000 down and the rest of the third of the total win on consignment, which comes out he/she gets a total of $83,000, you would have plenty of sharks biting on your case! Don’t look for the best lawyer or the most famous one, just s/o who has some sort of experience in Malpractice cases.
Take the case yourself (Pro-se) if none of the options are viable. Even if you are 100% positive that you can’t present a case yourself, (I’ve done it and it’s not as hard as lawyers make it out to be), just by filing the case, you might get a settlement offer!October 3, 2011 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #920075
Yehuda- happy to hear your yom tov was ok and you got to go to shul. its sad that something like this has to happen to remind us to thank Hashem for our health. may you have a complete recovery. thank you for updating us constantly.October 3, 2011 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #920076
and BTW- My special brother has lots of hardware in his back which keeps failing and breaking…. lots of hospitalizations. I can understand your pain. Its so hard to put him through surgery for hours and hours and then find out that it was not successful.October 4, 2011 11:44 am at 11:44 am #920077kapustaParticipant
Firstly, I’m very happy to hear you were able to get to shul. It should be a sign of good things to come. Second, a few weeks ago you started a thread “serious question” which I made a very insensitive comment on. Please be mochel me.
May this year bring all of Klal Yisroel Yeshuos and Simcha/s in every area.October 4, 2011 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #920078
kapusta: Machul Machul Machul. Please forgive me if I had offended you in any way.
Update: My stomach is in knots due to the antibiotics. I am taking probiotics and Omeprazole but they are not helping. I don’t know how I am going to get through the fast.
Pain level in my leg is rising, probably due to the rain we have here plus I had my first real “outside” day yesterday, so that probably aggravated it. Other than that, same old same old.
Baruch Hashem that I live in an era when we have antibiotics! I’ll take the discomfort over the infection.October 4, 2011 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #920079
You are going through this like such a trooper, YT.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
Was literally just thinking about you when you posted!
Remember to discuss with your rav about fasting or if you should do the halachic fasting with medication.
And about tfillin on your right arm temporarily if you still have the picc line in your left arm.
Feel better!October 4, 2011 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #920080
am yisrael chai: Thank you for your kind words. Trust me, I am no trooper. I’m just trying to stay positive.
I have been putting on tefillin over the Picc line (gently) as my Rav said that I could do it with a bracha even though the Picc is a chatzitza.
I need to ask about the fast.October 4, 2011 8:36 pm at 8:36 pm #920081
“Trust me, I am no trooper. I’m just trying to stay positive.
Trust me, trying to stay positive under challenging circumstances makes you a trooper in my book.October 4, 2011 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #920082Shticky GuyParticipant
Chazal tell us that each visitor to a choleh takes away a hundredth of his illness. So if he gets 100 visitors he should be cured. Maybe we can reach 100 posts on this thread (even if some are made by the choleh himself) then yehuda tzvi will get a 100% refuah. Lets see… can someone tell me what post number this is on this thread?
