    My dad has been having a lot of trouble with his stomach lately. His stomach has been hurting him off and on for the past month. Today he ended up going to the doctor. They said they are pretty sure that he has acid reflux syndrome. They gave him some medicine for the acid reflux syndrome. If that doesn't help, they are going to have to do some kind of test to see what else the problem may be. I just wanted to ask y'all to pray for him. God has the power to heal anything.

    Thanks for praying for him,

    Thanks y'all for praying for him. The acid reflux medicine hasn't helped. All the blood work has came back good, gall bladder and liver are fine. We do think we have found what might be causing all of this. Back this winter he got pneumonia and the dockets gave him Levaquin, after he finished taking the medicine, the pneumonia was still there. So the doctor gave him more. After that his heel started hurting, but he thought he had just hurt it working. Then he started having all the stomach problems. He was looking on the internet about the side effects of Levaquin and he has a lot of them. So anyone who is told to take Cipro, Levaquin, Floxin, Noroxin, ect. and any kind of fluoroquinolone don't take it. Here is some more information - http://www.fluoroquinolones.org/
    continue to keep my dad in your prayers.

  6. Put him in my prayer box, Know just how he feels,you might ask him if red meat makes it worse, I know when I was diagnosed with diverticulitis they told me I could eat anything except nuts WRONG, WRONG, red meat really throws me, so I keep a fridge full of yogurt, and cottage cheese,You can tell someone that your stomach hurts but they have no idea just how much.
