Prayer Requests 5-11-18

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 93

The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;
    the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength;
    indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
Your throne was established long ago;
    you are from all eternity.

The seas have lifted up, Lord,
    the seas have lifted up their voice;
    the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
    mightier than the breakers of the sea—
    the Lord on high is mighty.

Your statutes, Lord, stand firm;
    holiness adorns your house
    for endless days.

  1. Prayer for wisdom here. As we reach the end of tenth grade, husband continues to receive letters from the school every week, telling that son is not working up to expectations and has D’s. Son says D means diploma and husband says D means done. So we will see.

  2. As for sixteen daughter, the other day she told me:
    I stole ice cream.
    I want to be a witch.
    I want to go to public school.
    You won’t let me be a Catholic.
    I want to be a saint.
    I stole ice cream.

    So, after a while, I asked, how did you eat the ice cream, with your hands?
    Yes, but the next time I used a spoon.

    This morning I asked her what she did with the containers. She said she hid them under the porch and in the trash. Evidently, according to her, she ate four half gallons of ice cream that she took from the freezer. That is a lot of ice cream and helps to explain the seventy pound weight gain since she went on the meds.

    The other day she came home from OUI and said she was sick. They had taken her out for food (after we told them not to, she is not there during meal time, just a couple hours in the morning) and they got her a diet pop. According to the wisdom of the internet, some of the artificial sugars do not do well with schizophrenic meds and you should not combine them.

  3. Mumsee, in my training I had a couple of weeks ago, they said that most psych meds will cause significant weight gain, even without the extra food intake you have noticed. It is a vicious cycle you are in right now. You are in my prayers.

  4. RKessler, I wondered about how much was a change in metabolism. Significant. I noticed more ice cream is missing this morning. Time to keep the garage locked all the time. But I was especially concerned with her apparent reaction to diet pop. Sounded like racing heart, the shakes, overheating.

  5. I am sitting here at my desk praying and almost crying for you, Mumsee. It is so sad to be with someone who is so messed up. I also still feel sad from trying to have conversation with my friend Karen who trails off into jibberish when her brain is low on oxygen.

  6. Very difficult, Mumsee. Prayers.

    Update (from my sister) on my niece who had cleft palate surgery yesterday:

    [B] is recovering comfortably at home now. She had a tough time in the card ride leaving the hospital with the bumpy Baltimore roads, at least until we stopped half way home and bought her a tasty smoothie which stopped her crying. She then slept the rest of the way home.

    B is very swollen in the face and her hip is quite sore from where the bone graft was taken. We have every expectation she will heal well, but the doc says there’s about a 10% chance of failure with this type of surgery where the procedure would be repeated again a year later. Pray that her healing is complete. Follow up appointment in one month.

    Thank you for your prayers.
