    I made a thread but please pray for my good friend Heather. Something strange is going on with what the doctors think might be the brain. We are not sure, but please pray for her. Right now she is being transported to the hospital in the cities. I am really scared, please please pray for her. Thanks pet talk.

    My ultrasound update (2-20-06)

    Today was the long awaited ultrasound. They spent a ton of time looking at his heart (which is where they thought they might have seen concern before). Anyway, the tech looked at the baby for a good 45 minutes, and then the doctor came in and gave us the results. The doctor’s opinion concerning his heart was, quote, “ If I was a betting man, I would bet there is nothing wrong with his heart”…he said he really didn’t think there was anything wrong with it…but since there was concern for it at the previous ultrasound (and b/c the doctors need to be thorough)…I will have a fetal echocardiogram in 4 more weeks…where it will be looked at in more detail…then I have 2 more level 2 ultrasounds scheduled up until my due date. His bowel and kidneys appeared echogenic at the last ultrasound, meaning they were brighter in color than they should have been. His bowel has since cleared up, but his kidneys were still echogenic…but he didn’t seem too concerned about it…they seem to be functioning properly, since my amniotic fluid levels are normal (and a lot of that consists of fetal urine output). His femur bone is still measuring a little small, but my OBGYN wasn’t concerned about it, since I am small, and the men in my family are on the short side. Anyway, overall it was a really good appt. We were just praying for something positive to lean on, and hearing that they think his heart is fine, is so reassuring, and an answer to prayer. All of these “soft” markers, including the 2 vessel cord can happen to a downs syndrome baby, when all added up together, but normal babies can have these issues too. My genetic counselor had told me that a normal pregnancy has a 1% chance of downs, and ours is like 5% w/o a heart issue. With a heart issue (depending on how severe can mean anywhere from 10%-50% chance of downs) in combination with the other soft marker/issues he might have. Anyway, he measured the right weight at 1 lb. 1 oz. and was wiggling all over the place.

    Thank you all so much for your prayers. I feel the Lord has given us some positive news to hang on to, and I was also praying that the doctors didn’t give us any unnecessary worry if there wasn’t real concern for it…and I think the doctor was very reassuring. Thanks so much, and please keep those prayers coming as I will be having more ultrasounds. Make sure to praise God in your prayer time for a good report, since his bowel looked normal and his heart appears normal at this point, as well as his kidneys, even though they are still echogenic, the fluid levels were normal to show they were functioning. Thanks again…I couldn’t have gotten through the month w/o your prayers and concern for us!! I will keep you posted as I know more!! God is good and hears our prayers!! I hope this note finds you all well!

    I would like to ask for PT prayers for my husband and his family. His grandmother passed away this afternoon.

    Keegan's appt went smoothly. She did well with the accupuncture and the chiropractic and the pain shots. We discussed prognosis and it should be positive as long as she stops reinjuring it. She's grounded as to being on leash again. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I'd only request to go back to my normal clusterheadaches attacks. Another one like the two I had last sunday who led me to the ER and two injections against pain yesterday for the first time and scared the hell out of me, my hubby and sweet Farrusko and I don't believe I can make it.

    some info about clusterheadaches:

    Characteristics of Pain

    The pain of a cluster headache commences quickly, without warning, and reaches a crescendo within 2 to 15 minutes. It is often excruciating in intensity, and is deep, nonfluctuating, and explosive in quality; only occasionally is it pulsatile. In addition, 10 to 20 percent of patients report superimposed paroxysms of stabbing, icepick-like pains in the periorbital region that last for a few seconds and may occur once or several times in rapid succession; this paroxysmal pain usually heralds the end of an attack. The symptoms resolve in 1 to 2 minutes (Ekbom, 1975).

    The pain usually begins in, around, or above the eye or the temple (Fig. 6-3); occasionally the face, neck, ear, or hemicranium may be affected (Sutherland and Eadie, 1972). It is always unilateral, and generally affects the same side in subsequent bouts. However, it may shift to the corresponding region of the opposite side in 15 percent of patients (Manzoni et al, 1983b), usually for the duration of a bout, less often switching sides within a bout. Many patients prefer to be upright and active when an attack is in progress, but this is reported with a frequency that is not high enough to be useful diagnostically (Russell, 1981).

    Back to top

    Periodicity and Duration of the Attacks

    Attacks last from 30 minutes to 2 hours (mean of 45 minutes) in about 75 percent of cases. Occasionally, attacks - especially mild ones - may be as short as 10 minutes, whereas others may last as long as several hours. Attacks range in frequency from six per 24 hours to one per week, with a mean of one to two per day. Periodicity is a characteristic feature in about 85 percent of patients: attacks of pain tend to recur at the same hour each day for the duration of the cluster bout; many individuals also experience additional attacks that occur randomly throughout the day. About 75 percent of attacks occur between 9 p.m. and 10 a.m. (Russell, 1981). Manzoni et al, (1983b) found sharp peaks for attack frequency between 1 and 2 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m., and at 9 p.m (Fig. 6-4). Patients are awakened from sleep by pain paroxysms in about 50 percent of cases, usually within 2 hours of falling asleep (Lance and Anthony, 1971; Hornabrook, 1964). Nocturnal attacks are associated with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep about one-half the time in episodic cluster headache, but only rarely in the chronic form (Plaffenrath et al, 1986; Kayed and Sjaastad, 1985).

    please keep my husband JoJoe in your prayers. He called me from work saying he didn't feel well, then the secretary called 1/2 hr. later and said they had called 911 and he was on his way to the Emergency Room. They thought he'd had a heart attack, but after tests, say no. He goes to the Doctor tomorrow to see if they can figure out what happened. I got pretty scared, I don't know what I'd do without him! (He's at the age my Dad was when he died of a heart attack, so i guess that's in the back of my mind, too)
    Thanks for your prayers.

    Especially for my mom right now. Things aren't good with dad and we don't know how much longer he'll be here.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.

    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    I'll be keeping everyone in my prayers...I do have to ask you all to keep my cousin Cindy in your prayers. She had breast cancer, and the doctors thought that they had disposed of it, but they might have now found a couple of spots that *might* be tumors. We are hoping that they are just fluid sacks that have not been drained, but we are not sure...So please, please, keep her in your prayers.

    Another person you could please keep in your prayers is my old neighbor, Ben, who has an adorable Yorkie named Tootsie. He has prostate cancer, and it is fatal. Please pray that he will not be in too much pain, and that he can remain here as happy and heathy as possible until God brings him to Heaven...

    Rachel, this thread is an awesome idea, and you never told me about Heather..Please tell me more when I call you later on...
