Prayer Requests 3-31-17

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 28

To you, Lord, I call;
    you are my Rock,
    do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
    I will be like those who go down to the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy
    as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
    toward your Most Holy Place.

Do not drag me away with the wicked,
    with those who do evil,
who speak cordially with their neighbors
    but harbor malice in their hearts.
Repay them for their deeds
    and for their evil work;
repay them for what their hands have done
    and bring back on them what they deserve.

Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
    and what his hands have done,
he will tear them down
    and never build them up again.

Praise be to the Lord,
    for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
    and with my song I praise him.

The Lord is the strength of his people,
    a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Save your people and bless your inheritance;
    be their shepherd and carry them forever.

  1. Hi wanderers.
    Yesterday, I called concussion specialist and left a message for his nurse that Lindsey is not much better. I was shocked when I received a return call from the actual doctor! He asked for her symptoms–and then recommended she have something called vestibular therapy. Someone from his office is supposed to call me this morning to schedule. He offered to call in a prescription for Zofran (an anti-nausea drug)–but she already has it for her migraines.

  2. Prayers that Lindsey will be on the mend soon, Ann. I’m sorry she’s not feeling better.

    Good to hear from yesterday’s thread that you can get some pain relief, KBells, and that the sciatica generally resolves itself in time. Continued prayers for your healing.

  3. KBells, my mother gets sciatica on top of the pain from both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and Paget’s disease (an autoimmune condition where the bone is constantly broken down and then remodeled). Her muscles get out of order because her joints are so inflamed. Proper exercise is the most effective way of preventing sciatica and other cases where the nerves are pinched by out-of-place muscles.

  4. A long time ago, when my oldest son was an only child and I was carrying the second, my nerve was very painful. Nobody had any suggestions. Next pregnancy, the same. Fourth pregnancy, we were in Germany and a neighbor recommended a physical therapist. She told me to stand up. She said I did it wrong. She told me the military posture was the problem and I should work with the S in the spine. I relaxed my stance, she gave me some massages and time under a heat light, and the problem has never come back. It may be as simple as that. But that helps to see how those core exercises will actually help. Letting your back stand naturally puts the nerve in the right position. Any time I feel it starting, I look at my stance, adjust and it goes away. That does not mean that yours is not more significant, just one possibility that might help.

  5. Dr. Ex Mother In Law has issues with her sciatica and when I started having problems she told me to take a 5 lb bag of sugar, hold it in front of me with both hands and slowly bend over letting the weight of the 5 lbs pull you. It helps.

  6. I recently read a book entitled Deskbound: Standing Up To A Sitting World and it has excellent information and exercises in it.

  7. Kaitlyn is angry. Fighting mad at everything and everyone. It’s hard on her caregivers and those who love her. Her legs and feet are very swollen. The new pressurized oxygen Optiflow is hurting her ears. She’s so weak. Had another blood transfusion yesterday.

    Please pray for peace in her heart and in her family.

  8. Kare – By saying that the oxygen is hurting her ears, do you mean the cannula (sp?) is irritating the back of her ears? If so, could someone put some cotton or something around that part to ease the discomfort?

  9. I’m so sorry to hear this, Kare. How scary that whole process must be. And I’m wondering what the cancer and/or the chemo may be doing to her brain, as well. Continued prayers for her peace, and that of her family’s.

  10. The oxygen is now pressurized and the pressure of it entering her nose puts pressure in her ears which hurts. She can’t get her O2 levels above 90 any more even with this machine. Lack of oxygen definitely affects thinking.

    Thank you so much for praying.

  11. Without going into any details (too long to explain anyway). . .I think Chickadee is feeling some turmoil about her life, but also trying to ignore it. Please pray the Holy Spirit will get through to her, & that she will have ears to hear, & a heart to believe. Most of all, God’s will be done in her situation & in her life. Thank you.

  12. God love Kaitlyn. I am sure it is hard not to be angry. She is a YOUNG woman facing death to cancer. I think perhaps she is going through the stages of grief. Not being able to breathe has to be terrifying.

  13. Yes, low oxygen saturation levels do affect the ability to think clearly. For all, but those with chronic lung disease who have adapted to lower levels, the saturation level should be 94-98 percent. That is so hard, Kare.
