Can I just remind everyone that Carol has started the new prayer thread for August...here is the link:

geboard_thread.asp?board=0x15222x673R>17459



That is better news indeed Marj, thanks for the update.

Carol...I certainly know all about that situation.
When Joseph had the cerebral haemorrhage I read books (no google search in 1999) and found out that the body had two balance centres. The ears and another in the brain. That was the one that was affected with Joseph. I asked him to put a picture straight on a wall. Then I asked him to walk along the joins in our ceramic floor. Of course he couldn't complete either task so I became his physio to help him recover. The doctors weren't even aware of his difficulties...

Update on Steve and baby Natalie Rogers: Steve was able to come home on Monday this week. If Steve's spinal tap cultures remain negative, that means the fungus is all gone. If not, he will have to return to the hospital for another round of treatment.

Natalie is scheduled to have the internal shunt replaced this week (maybe it was today, Wednesday). If that all goes well she will be able to return home very soon.

What an ordeal this has been! But God is good and it appears that he is bringing them out of this dark valley. And I thank Him for his presence and comfort for them through it all!

Thank you all for your many prayers!

Psalm 40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth, Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things [all of my needs] shall be added unto you.

Janet, something that Dwight taught me a long time ago is that the patient has to take charge of his/her medical situation because the professionals do make mistakes. (I imagine you've known that for a long time!) And when someone has as many different doctors as Dwight does, it's easy to miss something. So I appreciate you mentioning that specific illness. It's hard to watch him holding onto walls and door frames when walking, but he's determined to keep functioning.

Janet, he's been checked for so much that it's hard to imagine the professionals overlooking anything, but I'll ask about that when he goes back to the doctor. Thanks for the suggestion. Dwight occasionally has a "not so bad day" and I'm thankful for those!

Carol...so sad to hear about Dwight, have they tested for Meniere's disease. I have a friend who suffers with that...similar to vertigo but doesn't go away.
Praying for him and your husband.

Natalie will be in the hospital for the next two weeks when they will be able to replace the permanent shunt.

Steve will be in the hospital for at least another two weeks - he is still a very sick man.

The other six children are staying with Hannah's cousin who has been a tremendous help to them already in this difficult time.

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers.

My heart goes out to the family as they have had so many issues. It is especially difficult for the parents. Keeping them in prayer.

Also lifting up Dwight. I hope his medical team are able to diagnose the issues and find a feasible treatment option so he can remain mobile without falling.

Thank you for starting this thread, Janet. My husband is having serious problems with dizziness and I haven't been online very much. Dwight has had just about every test imaginable, but still no definitive diagnosis. He uses a walker sometimes, but still easily falls because it feels like the room is turning upside down. Prayers much appreciated.

Natalie Rogers does have a staff infection. Pray that the antibiotics will work. She is to have her shunt taken out tomorrow. She will have to have an external shunt for two weeks.

Good morning,
Following is a post from our local prayer group:

'Steve Rogers is in ICU at St. Lukes, please pray for him, he has been there since Tuesday July 18.

Also Hannah and little Natalie were flown by helicopter to the children's hospital, Natalie had a high fever after a shunt was put in. Will update as we have new information.'

Natalie is their 7 month old hydro-encephali (sp?) baby. Her original shunt malfunctioned and had to be surgically replaced the weekend before Steve's ordeal began.

Please continue praying for this family. Thank you. God is in control and I thank Him for that assurance.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose.

Psalm 40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth, Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things [all of my needs] shall be added unto you.

Thanks for the update Marj. Yes continuing to remember the whole family in prayer.

PTL Janet that Leah & Mitch's house has been sold!!! I know what a weight that is off everyone's minds.
Great news for you and your recovery...slowly does it eh!!

So sorry to hear of the loss of the pastor's wife. My dh died five days after diagnosis. It gave us time to share how much we meant to each other but so sudden. For him the suffering was over. Lifting the pastor and the congregation up during this time for comfort.

Poor Nelllie! Will remember her. Also praying for Joseph and other requests.

Praise report!!! Leah and Mitch's house is SOLD! Closing date is Aug 1. And my heart procedure on June 30 has been successful and I am feeling so much better. I appreciate your prayers and please pray that my heart continues to get stronger.

I do have a special request though. Please pray for our minister, Bro. Jeff Workman and our church, Gospel Assembly Church in Anna. We lost our minister's wife Sis Paula yesterday to cancer. They just found our she had cancer a week ago and it was too far gone. Her family is devastated. We loved her so much and she was such a part of us. This is a huge hole in our hearts



Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in (me) will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
Phil 1:6

Janet - Thank you for re-posting this here, didn't notice that I had posted to May instead of July!

Update on Steve: He is responding to treatment, still vomiting though. Pray that kidney damage will not occur as a result of the medication he is on (it is a possible side effect). Hannah is needing to get more rest - she has not been home since Sunday. Her mother is staying with the kids and the four older ones came to church last evening with their aunt and uncle who were here visiting for a few days. Please continue to pray for the whole family.

Thank you to all who are praying.

Continuing to remember your son in prayer too SmilingEyes.

Joseph is still waiting for his back pain treatment. The anaesthetist is confident that he can help him. It's been over two years now since the car accident.

Remember JanetR as she continues her recovery from the heart procedure she had recently.
Praying her daughter and sil's house will finally be sold...almost there!!

Prayers for Lori and her husband as they continue to wait patiently for an answer from the Lord about where He would have them serve Him in Africa.

Also remembering Nellie. I'm following her on fb because she's no long able to partake on SP. She is getting ready to move into a caring environment for her alzheimers and is naturally apprehensive.

This prayer request was posted on the (old) May thread so I'm reposting it here so we can all join in prayer for these requests.

Hi
Haven't been on here for ages, but have an urgent prayer request so am going to every prayer group I can think of with it.

Please pray for a miracle for Steve R and his wife Hannah and their 7 young children ages 7 months to 15 years. Steve has been diagnosed with fungal meningitis of the brain, potentially fatal, and is currently in the hospital. He also has been struggling with sarcoidosis (an auto immune disease, resulting from welding in a non-ventilated environment) for a couple of years, therefore his resistance is down and he has not been able to fight off the infection.

Thank you.

Marj
