Thanks. My son got to go with the parents today to visit him for an hour. He seems to be doing well and will probably get to go home on Monday.

Praying for you Beekahbug. emoticon

I have kind of an urgent prayer request. I've hesitated putting it here because I don't like to be selfish. Here is what I finally posted in one my Facebook groups. It's really long, so I understand if you don't want to read it. The gist of it is that I haven't been able to breathe since Tuesday and keep coming upon brick wall after brick wall.

I really hate to sound selfish, but I could use some prayers right now. This has been an absolutely horrible week! Tuesday I had a really bad asthma attack at work and was sent to urgent care. After waiting about 30-40 minutes from the time we entered the urgent care, I was taken to a room. Then, about 15 minutes later the nurse practitioner came in. She listened to me and said I wasn't getting any air in my lungs. She ordered a breathing treatment. It took like another 20 minutes to get the breathing treatment. Then, the doctor came in a little while after my breathing treatment. He listened to me. He said I still wasn't getting any air to my lungs. So, he ordered a chest x-ray. The chest x-ray came back fine. He then proceeded to try to send me home with prednisone, which I had told like 3 people I was allergic to. The doctor had no clue I was allergic to it.Then, he sent me home with cough syrup and allergy pills. Still not checking to make sure I was getting air to my lungs. I went home and had to do more breathing treatments.
Then, Wednesday, I had an appointment with a pulmonologist and some scheduled tests to do. So, I went to my appointment. I had to do a pulmonary function test. I did fine on the first part. Then, I had to walk for 6 minutes. I did a lap and a half and was coughing so hard that they had me sit down and sip on some water. Then, I got back up and tried again. I did like 2 more laps and was stopping every few paces to cough. Then, I had to breath in the machine again. I did more coughing in the machine than breathing. The respiratory person even told me she was going to make a special note of my coughing. However, when I got to the pulmologist's appointment, he told me my tests were fine and that I had dysfunctional vocal chords and was breathing fine. Even though I was coughing the whole time I was there. So, I went home and went to church. At church, I could barely talk or laugh.
Then, on Thursday, I wasn't breathing any easier. I did a breathing treatment before I left for work and one at lunch, skipping lunch because I didn't have the breath to eat. I went straight to the church to meet the organist for worship team practice. I was there about 10-15 minutes ahead of her because the church is beside an elementary school and I wanted to escape the traffic. I spent those minutes talking with our pastor's wife, who is a nurse. I was coughing so hard and breathing so hard that I could see her flipping into "nurse mode". She coached me through some breathing because I was taking really short, quick, shallow breaths instead of slowing down to breathe. I told her I didn't feel up to practicing, but I wouldn't tell Shirley that. She told Shirley for me. We still practiced for over an hour. The only reason we quit when we did was because Shirley had to leave to meet some friends (she's probably 70 years old).
Then, after worship team practice, I went to my therapist's appointment. I got there a little early, so I was sitting in the waiting area right outside his office. I was coughing really badly. When he brought me in, he asked how I was doing, but I was so winded he couldn't really hear my attempts to talk unless he looked at me and focused. He decided that instead of having a session, I needed to go to urgent care. He asked me what my plan was. I told him I had thought about asking if the clinic inside Walmart was considered a doctor's visit or an urgent care visit. He called Walmart and talked to them. They said I would be better off to go to urgent care. So, he told me where to go to one. I headed that direction. The Lord intervened on me spending tons of money on healthcare and caused me to pass my hubby as I was pulling into the urgent care. He said that this one was not in our network, and told me which one was and I went there. I got there 1 minute after they closed. So, I called my hubby and decided to go to the ER. I called a lady from church to ask her to let the pastor and his wife know what I was doing.
I went to the ER, I was waiting maybe 5 minutes before they took me back to triage. Then, about 5 minutes into the triage, the nurse stopped and said that she was going to get me in a room. Within minutes, there were several people in the room trying to do their thing. The doctor said I wasn't getting much air into my lungs, so she ordered a breathing treatment. They also did an EKG, which is always abnormal. They also did blood work and another chest x-ray. The doctor came back a little while later and listened to me. She said that I was getting some air to my lungs, but not a whole lot. So, she ordered another breathing treatment.
Oh, I forgot to mention that about 10-15 minutes after I was taken back to the room, my pastor and an elder showed up at the hospital. Then, a few minutes later, my husband showed up (he was working, so he couldn't come with me. His manager said he could leave, but he decided to wait and see what the ER was going to do). When he found out that they were going to discharge me, he finished his shift. They talked about sending me home with steroids, but the dr was hesitant to since I was allergic to prednisone. They ended up sending me home without a prescription, altho she told me to use my nebulizer every 3-4 hours until I could get with the pulmonologist and see what he said. I couldn't sleep again last night because I couldn't lay down.
Then, today, I went to work. I do not have cell service at work, so I couldn't call any doctors until after I left. I called the family doctor first to let them know what was going on. They tried to squeeze me in today, but because I didn't call until close to 3, they said they couldn't. But, I have an ppointment on Tuesday (the next day my doctor works). Then, I went home and talked to my hubby. I used his phone to call the pulmonologist. I explained to the staff what was going on, and they sent me to the pulmonlogist's nurse. The nurse then put the doctor on the phone. The doctor basically yelled at me saying that I had vocal chord dysfunction and could breathe just fine. Then, he hung up on me before I could say anything else. So, I called the family doctor back. As soon as I told them what the pulmonologist did, the receptionist immediately said that they would find me a different pulmonologist. Then, the doctor called me back about 6, which I find odd for a doctor's office on a Friday night. But, they wanted to follow up with further instructions. My doctor said that if my breathing worsened, then I had to go back to the ER. Which, I can't do because we don't have the money and I can't afford to be admitted to the hospital. Then, she said that they are going to get the records from the pulmonologist and go from there on what to do when I come in on Tuesday.
Today, I have been struggling to breathe and have done 4 breathing treatments since 6:00 this morning.

My oldest came home from college for the weekend. Shortly after he got home he found out one of his best friends was admitted to a hospital for suicidal depression. He is not taking it very well. He has been very emotional tonight worried about his friend but also sharing a lot about the stress and pressure he is under this first year in college. I was able to talk to the boy's mom and my heart just breaks as she is hurting and worrying about her son. Please pray for the friend, his mom and dad, and my son.

I have a very dear friend who is on the verge of divorce. She is in her late 50s and has 2 young children they adopted from China. She is in a situation that is emotionally abusive and doesn't know how to get out of it and still have the life she wants. She is feeling this pressure from her husband, siblings, and his siblings. It is almost like they are all ganging up on her. Granted, I only know one side of the story, but she is the one that knows more about child-rearing than her husband. This is the issue central to their disagreements.

Thanks Tina. The pain is gone. Unfortunately I'm still really struggling with feeling unloved by my husband. It has made for a very quiet day as he doesn't know what to do with me and just ignores me hoping I'll "get over it". emoticon

Leisa - sorry i didn't see this sooner! I am lifting up prayers for you to be covered in God's peace. May He bring healing and hope into your life.

Oh Dearest Heavenly Father - I lift Leisa up to you now. I pray that You would cover her in the peace that can only come from You. If she needs to see a doctor, please guide her and give her wisdom and knowledge in following through. I pray for complete healing and that it doesn't turn out to be anything serious, but easily remedied. I pray that You would fill her with a hope that transcends earthly understanding. She is a daughter of the King, wholy and completely loved by You. Hold her close, Lord. It is in Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.

I guess I'm just going to have to face the music and call the doctor. Pain came back at 4:00 this morning. I really don't want to go to the doctor because I know she will order a bunch of tests and honestly I don't want to go through that and I'm afraid of the results. emoticon

And you know what Jesus said about two or more of us agreeing about something in prayer...!

Leisa, I am sorry to hear how you are doing.
Father, first I pray that you will allow Leisa the strength to trust you with her son and his decisions, no matter how he chooses to live his life. I pray that you will surround him with Christian friends who will be a help in directing his life. I pray you will draw him to a Christian organization where he can have fellowship with believers who desire to make Christ honoring decisions.
I pray Father for her relationship with her husband. That you will give her grace to seek her love and appreciation from you and not him. I pray that you will help her to daily offer words of encouragement to him even if she gets none in return, but Father, I ask that the process of doing this will result in him caring for and loving her as Christ loves His Church.

I also ask that you will give her freedom from those physical and mental ailments that are plaguing her. Give her peace, grace, and faith to trust you daily. Thank you Jesus.

Well, here I come again, begging for prayers. I'm falling apart today. I know the reasons. First, DS is going back to college after being home for a month. I'm going to miss him terribly, but I also worry about the choices he will make while away as last semester was not his best. Second, I continue to feel unloved and unappreciated by my husband no matter what I say or do. I feel like I'm the only one who cares. And finally, I feel bad physically. I've had a constant feeling of being bloated, full, and painful all week. I'm just kind of bottomed out right now. emoticon

Leisa - I'm really sorry to hear you had a bad day yesterday. I can identify with your feelings of being a failure.

However, as you said, although you might FEEL a failure, you are NOT a failure.

Even if you BELIEVE you are a failure, it's still NOT TRUE!

I sometimes wonder at how people admire tiny babies, smiling broadly and saying how beautiful and precious they are, whilst all the baby does is cry, eat and sleep! We love babies and little children just for BEING, not for anything they've done, nor even for any potential they may have to do great things in the future.

And if WE, flawed as we are, can love like that then God must surely love us, His 'little children' just the same - in fact, more!

You are Very Precious. God values you so highly that he gave up His Son for you - you're worth THAT MUCH to Him!

I don't know if that helps at all - I hope so - but at least it will offset some of the lies with which you have been bombarded recently.

Feel free to remind me of all the above any time. It seems I have a very short memory!

Lord God, Thank you for the women on this team, their support and prayers. Thank you for the honesty in asking for the prayers they really need.
As an earthly father would not give a snake when his child asked for bread....so You will provide what is best.
Today we ask specifically for Leisa and Ravyna. Our active members are less than 30 now and since they are all familiar to me...I know YOU understand and love each of us...all 716 on our team list. May YOU be at the top of our lists as we enter 2016.
Amen

I needed to get on here yesterday and ask you guys for prayers. Pretty much I listened to the old tapes telling me what a failure I was and how no one appreciated me in my family. I ruined the day for everyone. emoticon I knew it was all lies, but when you've spent so much of your life listening to the lies they kind of feel like truth.

I've just prayed for safe travel and wisdom to know when and which way to go, Ravyna.

God bless you.

Thank you for letting us know answers to prayers.

We are in Missouri where there has been extreme flooding of the rivers. Even some of the highways are closed that we need to travel on to get home in TX. Please pray for wisdom for my husband and I as we travel back on New Year's Day with my daughter and Granddaughter. Thank you.

Also for the families who have lost loved ones, 14 in Missouri as of today.

Thank you for the prayers! After a cancelled flight and many delays, my MIL made it home safely last night. The visit went well. She did have a lovely time, with only a few hiccups. There was tension between my BIL and SIL that was pretty uncomfortable and it just made my MIL sad to see how they have the "perfect life" on the outside and yet don't connect with each other and are so very selfish and self-seeking. One good thing - on Christmas Day my BIL asked my MIL to say grace. That is a big deal! Overall, it was a good trip (even if the actual traveling part was a nightmare). We are just so glad to have her home.

This is a little late in coming but could you please pray for my MIL. She is currently in CA visiting my BIL, SIL and nephew. There is quite a bit of tension between her and my SIL. I'm asking for prayers for a good visit, that peace will reign, that my MIL will be a light in their home (they do not believe) and for safe travels home (Dec 27-28). This is the first time she has traveled alone since my FIL passed away. Thanks for your prayers!

Hiring a lawyer when it comes to car accidents is something some people just automatically do. They cannot get more than what your insurance will cover.
Lord please protect this family, protect sunflower gals son as he has gone back to school, give grace for recovery, physical, emotional, and spiritual. Protect them from unfounded attacks.

Allow your name to be brought Praise through this all.

Thanks for the prayers. Please continue as we found out today that the other person has hired a lawyer. My first response was fear, but then I got angry. I will not let "fear" control my thoughts anymore! I will live by faith! God is my source. He is my protector! I will seek His will in my life and praise Him in the storm!

I'm not very good at 'creating' prayers at the moment, but I can certainly say "Amen" to other people's prayers - and I've just said "Amen" to Joyce's prayer below (thanks, Joyce).

It is frightening. Praying that this turns out okay for you all. God bless you.

Thank you for the prayers friends. My son is sore today, but so thankful that is the only physical effect. We went today to get all of his stuff out of the car. Seeing it in daylight made me even more thankful that no one was injured. I really appreciate your friendship and prayers. Last night I wanted to get online just quick enough to check in with you gals as I knew I could count on some prayers from you. emoticon

Oh Lord God!
We ache with Leisa for the pain and turmoil of this situation...you are almighty and loving.
An old song comes to mind "You own the cattle on a thousand hills" ...please, slaughter one cow to supply the needs of Leisa and her family. But, I know the spiritual and emotional needs are heavy as well. May each member of the family look to you as the Source of comfort.
Amen

No internet at home and limited on my phone so this will be brief. Son hit another car on way home from college tonight. Everyone is OK. Car totaled. Son very upset...first wreck and first ticket. So thankful for everyone being okay. Would appreciate prayers as we deal with all the issues that result. Previous bad experience with auto accident and court. Plus we can't afford to buy a car now. Thank you.

My daughter started medication to expel her baby on Saturday, and today found out she needs to have surgery to remove the baby's egg sac which is lodged way up in her uterus and has not let go. Please pray for a safe surgery, which should only take 30 minutes but she will need general anesthesia.

Please pray for quick recovery. She is running a fever and is very weak. Her MIL Came and picked up our 3 yr old GD. my husband and I are out of town.
