Prayers needed for Bob Corey

Recommended Posts

Not sure if many of you know but Bob Corey (he is a member here) of shepardsville ky has been battling prostate cancer for many years.

He had started to loose the battle and had recently had his white blood cells removed sent to a lab and was awaiting there return.

During this time he and his wife Cathy were in a minor fender bender in Lexington ky, where bob suffered whiplash,

He refused medical treatment due to he was suppose to stay away from sick people during this time, so he went home and collapsed during the night, they rushed him to university medical center i think in lexington, cathy said it was the #1 trauma hospital around. They did emergency brain surgery from a bleed from the whiplash, he as been in a coma for the past 2 1/2 weeks, he desperately needs everyone's prayers, he has made the trip to page with me more than once.

He is my friend

Just wanted you guys to know

He and Cathy are good people. He would do anything for you. I met him back in April 2008 at the LSA school.

We hope Bob comes out of this and recovers.

Like Roger, I met Bob at the LSA school in California. We hung out together and my wife and I later visited Bob and Cathy at their home in Kentucky.

My prayers and thoughts are with Bob and Cathy.

I don't know Bob, but my prayers and thoughts are with them. (I had a prostatectomy at Mayo Clinic Jan 24th and to this point all is clear.) Hopefully the coma is induced to allow the post surgical swelling to go down.

Like Roger and John, meet Bob at Rainbow in 2008. Rose and I recall the BBQ held here at the ranch, and all the 'lies' that were told. 

We followed many of his ballooning exploits during the years.  We never made it to his 'little grass strip' that he was always maintaining.

Our prayers for him and Cathy.

Just got back from my visit, it was terrible!!!!!

He is at the Louisville ky VA hospital in hospice care, he is fighting for every breath and a fever of 105...they are not hydrating him but at least he is loaded up with morphine.

On my trip back home looking at our beautiful blue skies today from a cold front coming in from Canada that the skies looked empty, but I know I don't  have to ever be nervous in turbulence anymore as I know bob will be sitting right out there on my wing...........

 

I put a picture of him and cathy and hope this post will forever be viewable, this was where we flew out CTs to the Bahamas........

I hope to see my friend again one day
