    Glad to hear it, RICHARD. We'll keep the prayers going that she'll heal nicely.

    Dear PT Friends, would you please say a prayer for my sister-in-law Karen and her father. The last time I saw him was on Christmas, and he was talkative and cheerful. My brother told me on Saturday that he is much more confused now; drives even though the doctor has said he shouldn't; and that he sometimes forgets to eat or to shower if he isn't reminded. He receives home-delivered meals. He is in his late 80s and made an amazing recovery from an infection with the "flesh-eating" bacterium about 10 or 12 years ago. It makes me sad to think about him failing.

    Thank you,
    Elyse

    Prayers needed for Breanna/Update post #2020

    I received a very distressing email from a friend today. Her niece's best friend Breanna, who is a senior in high school, has been stricken with a mysterious life threatening illness. It started out a couple of weeks ago like a cold, then progressed to a flu-like illness and she was admitted to the hospital. The doctors don't know what's wrong with her, as she's not responding to any kind of treatment, and is now in ICU on life support. They wanted to transfer her to Duke Medical Center, but the doctors at Duke didn't feel she would survive the transfer. Unless she makes a miraculous turn around and starts to respond, then the doctors say she will die.
    This poor girl needs prayers and a miracle. Please all, send some prayers and positive vibes to Breanna Fink in NC, and some for her family as well.
    Thanks a bunch.

    Goodness, Ellie, that's awful. It almost sounds as though it could be meningitis but then they probably would've had the diagnosis by now. Many prayers are on the way.....

    Breanna - update

    Amazingly, Breanna continues to cling to life. She had surgery on Saturday to remove a mass that was pressing on her lung, and Sunday took a turn for the worse and crashed. The decision was then made that she had to be transferred to Duke, and she crashed again during the chopper ride. They brought her back from death's door again. She is now on a lung bypass machine at Duke, with the hopes that her lungs will have a chance to recover this way (both lungs have collapsed). There is still no diagnosis and the doctors are treating it as a massive infection of unknown origin. Her tests have been sent to major medical centers thruout the country in the hopes that someone somewhere can identify what it is. Right now they are concerned with internal bleeding since she is on such high doses of blood thinners to allow her blood to circulate thru all the machines that are keeping her alive. She is still facing weeks, and even months of hospitalization, even if they can identify this illness.
    Again, please send a prayer and some positive vibes to Breanna and her family.
    Thanks!

    Update. I talked to Karen after church on Sunday. Things are going better for her dad, but there still may be difficult decisions to make in the not too distant future.

    PRAYERS for Breanna - I hope she hangs on long enough for healing to settle in...come on, girl!

    More prayers for Karen's dad...glad to hear things are a bit better for him. Won't make the decisions any less difficult. I hope she has a lot more quality time with him.

    I'm sorry to hear this. Prayers are continuing so that, whatever the decision, he'll be as comfortable as possible so that they can enjoy whatever time is left to them together. My heart is w/you all.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    Prayers to everyone...

    Caring for your parents is a tough, emotional job. Every decision is hard, but you have to do your best by them. Be firm in your choices and always keep your wits and faith about you.

    Every day is a new challenge. YOu just have to remember not to flinch.
