PRAYERS, PLEASE


I have been at the hospital since yesterday morning with Mom. On Sunday, she had a very bad night, with diarrhea and vomiting, and severe upper abdominal pain. This continued on into the morning and through the day yesterday. They have the pain a little better under control now, but the tests are showing nothing. Mom is one tough cookie, and she doesn't complain unless the pain is very bad. Please pray that the tests will show up something that can be treated easily. My sister is with her tonight...we just do not feel comfortable leaving her alone.

I think one of the greatest blessings of friendship is the fact that we can call on one another when needed. We can boldly ask for prayer, knowing the request will be honored. So, thank you, friends, for being there when I need a little extra prayer power. You're the best!

Tonja, I know how tough it is when your mama's not doing well! I think you're 100% right not to leave her alone in the hospital. I'm praying.

Tonja, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I pray that tomorrow will find her feeling much better and the tests will give the doctors the answers they need to help her get well.

My heart and prayers go out to you, too, my friend. I hope you get some rest tonight.

Please keep us posted when you can.

Sincerely,

Janie

Hi Tonja, found you on Angela's blog.....

I have experienced almost the same thing with my mother...was put in the hospital and finally the culprit as an innocent dose of antibiotics given to her from her dentist, which caused the "C-diff" bacteria...she was in the hospital for a week! And the siblings took turns staying with her at the hospital...

Praying that God will touch your little mother and too that he gives the doctors wisdom to find the cause of her illness.

Blessings!

Thank you so much for your prayers and kind words. They mean everything when you're going through times of trouble. Just wanted to let you know they postponed his surgery till Tuesday. He has a slight infection from having fluids in his lungs. Thanks again for everything. Debbie
