Default Prayers needed.........

Hey y'all............I haven't been here much since we got home from the Glory......things have been very hectic......Larry has been having problems & we didn't know what it was........been to Drs, MRI's, CT's........ended up in the ER today........they thought it was a stroke.......turns out it wasn't.....all the tests came back negitive.....so that was good.....they called a nuerologist in & he seemed to know what it was by looking at Larry......did a quick test....injection of something I can't pronounce....& he was back to his old self........so now he's in the hospital with them trying to get the meds right.......what he has is called myasthenia gravis. Rare I guess.....but this Dr specialises in it, so that's a good thing.......

Hopefully we will know more tomorrow......so keep Larry in your prayers.........



Sharon

So sorry to hear that news. When my niece was 3 years old she was diagnosed with this same thing. It took them a long time and she was in complete liver failure before they knew what it was. We put her on our prayer chain, and our pastor called a Pastor from the same denomination as ours who lived close to the hospital she was in in Washington State. As soon as he went and prayed for her her healing process begain.

I know that your prayers will be answered too. Today she is a brillant, beautiful 20 year old. She is in her 3rd year at UConn, in the pharmacy program.

Keep your head up.

Sharon, I am so sorry to hear this news. I'm glad that you have a diagnosis and that it is treatable. I've missed seeing you around here and having you in chat. I thought it was because you were busy with work. Tell Larry that we are praying for him and for you as you go through this. ((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

Sharon, I am so sorry to hear about Larry's diagnosis. At least the doctors know what it is so they can deal with it.

I know how hard it is when your mate becomes seriously ill. Take care of yourself. I hope Larry responds to the meds and that things get back to normal for you both.

Hi Sharon,

Good thoughts, prayers and wishes are on your way. Hope that everything will be under control soon.

I've also been on the receiving end of the warm and caring thoughts of strangers/friends here on the Cruisemates board, and I know how much it helps.

Please keep us informed....the best to you and your husband!

...Jean

Sharon, I'm a little late with the good wishes, but I've been bedridden myself these past 3 days. I would've gone to the hospital, the pain was that bad, but I couldn't get out of bed! Just a slipped disc or something, nothing serious. Glad to hear Larry's problem is identified and treatable. Sending good wishes for a full and speedy recovery!
