I received a text today at 2:40 p.m. that 1/4 Away (Fred Cioffi) a great friend I have met right here had a MRI today and found a bleed and small lesion in his brain.
He was admitted to a local hospital and now has been transported to Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC.
I ask that God will be with him and guide the Dr's in whatever direction they need to go and for healing of the lesion. I ask in Jesus name ! [pray]

Update from another text I received from Fred at 7:00p.m last night.
The Dr. said the bleed wasn't nothing that concerned at this point But the lesion which is either an indication of MS or a cancerous brain tumor.
They scheduled to do a spinal tap and another form of MRI for today.
The Docs will review the results to determine if surgery is needed.
Fred being Fred also said the worst part was he was expecting delivery of a Fox recurve yesterday while his wife was away and he wasn't there to receive it and hide it before she found out he had another bow in his stable.
It went to the post office.
I will keep my friend in prayer and praying a miracle takes place and it's nothing serious.
In Jesus name I pray.

I've heard varying views on the lesions...in folks over 50, they say almost anyone will have a few... hopefully, his team will do consults with more experienced folks in that area of expertise.

Prayers about for him...that's a great story about the bow... More importantly that the brain bleed can be resolved and the lesions found to be a minor issue as well!

Lord, in your infinite Mercy...hear our prayers...

Thanks guys for lifting up Fred! He did text me once more yesterday letting me know they were about to do the spinal tap procedure.
Fred was all excited texting me about a Fox High Sierra he was to get Thursday and we both had Dr's appointments on Wednesday.
He then text about the discovery of the lesion and bleed and at the end about the bow .
I sort of had a grin on my face because he always makes certain that all those bows are delivered when she is either out of town or away doing something so he can scramble home and blend it in with all his other bows.
This time he might of got cought cause you all know how they leave a note on the door or mailbox about trying to deliver a package..
Knowing Fred he had a plan "B" as he always tells me lol.
Fred being a police detective and pretty darn witty I'm sure has himself a plan "B" and please pray along with me that he made his reservations for a plan "B" in excepting Jesus as his Lord and Savior as well.
If I recall he may have told me he has over the years but let's pray he has. Thank you and God Bless!

I want to thank everyone for your prayers and well wishes. It's definitely been a tough few days. Right now I'm in the hospital because I was having severe pain in my left side and thought it was possibly a kidney stone. Turns out I was retaining fluid and after putting in a foley my bladder put out 1500cc of urine. They still need to do some more tests regarding the lesion in my brain , they were unsuccessfully drawing the spinal fluid and are going to try again. but that's not happening until I resolve the kidney issue. As far as the bow goes I had to fess up to the wife cuz I need her to go pick it up at the post office before they send it back to the seller. Plus she really can't get all that mad at me with all that's going on. Again, thank you all for the prayers.

We still got you covered Fred and continued prayers for sure. Get well my friend and sorry you couldn't be there to get that bow before the wife found out.
I sure miss harassing you when you are ill buddy.
Get well Fred.

Only a Bow-A-Holic would use illness as a way to get another bow in the house! [Smile]

Prayers continue for you, Fred... I cannot imagine how badly that full a bladder hurt...I about passed out at like 700cc retention once... Oye.

Good luck getting a handle on all this and keep the great attitude.

Keeps everyone wondering... Prayers continue!

Hi doc, ironically I wasn't aware that my bladder was that full because my bowels were also full at the same time and that's where the pain was coming from. Good news is that my creatine level is back to normal and they are thinking of letting me go home today, and lucky me I get to take the foley with me. Once this issue is resolved we still have to meet with the tumor team to see what their plan is regarding the lesion. We are also getting the medical records so that we can get a second and third opinion. My main concern right now is the doc is letting my wife remove the foley at home either Wednesday or Friday ( she is an er nurse). I've already apologized for any thing I've ever done wrong in our 24 years married and asked her to be gentle. She said not to worry she give me an arrow to bite down on. LOL
