Prayer Requests 12-13-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 123

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to you,
    to you who sit enthroned in heaven.
As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
    as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress,
   so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till he shows us his mercy.

Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us,
    for we have endured no end of contempt.
We have endured no end
    of ridicule from the arrogant,
    of contempt from the proud.

  1. Praying alongside Mumsee.
    And we cover Aj as next Tuesday approaches. Sensing His presence of calm in the midst of the journey.
    Praying for Mr P and Kim … thankful for the doctor and asking the Lord to give to him wisdom, direction and resolve as he operates.

    Covering Chickadee this morning as her mama is unsettled. The Lord knows and He hears our petition before Him. Praying for a breakthrough…

  2. Boy is very sick. Nightingale suspects that he has the flu, which has been going around the schools. Last she heard, half of the students at the high school were out, and in Boy’s school (the middle school) there are also a large number of kids out sick. 😦

    She is keeping him upstairs, and told him to stay away from me so as not to get me sick, especially since I’m “old”. But I have probably already been exposed to the virus. Well, we’ll see what happens.

  3. Praying for you all Kizzie. Can Nightingale secure some TamiFlu for you? A friend’s wife caught Flu A. They were both vaccinated but they were given TamiFlu right away. She recovered quickly and he never got it.

  4. When people get sick, do they normally go to a doctor? Did the boy go in to the doctor, or how was he diagnosed? Curious, because I don’t know. When I am sick, I just want to stay in bed. But I get the impression over the past few years that people actually go to the doctor when sick. I never understood going to the doctor to find out if one had covid, for example. But I may be out of the loop.

  5. Mumsee – In my family, we don’t usually go to the doctor with “normal” sicknesses. When we had Covid, it was a test we had at home that determined it. About three years ago, when I had pneumonia, it took me being sick and getting sicker over the course of a few weeks that finally nudged me to go in. (And you may remember the “gas bubble” I tried to ignore that turned out to be my gallbladder needing to come out. 🙂 )

    Nightingale usually does not take Boy to the doctor unless he has an ear infection, and then, only if it has not resolved itself within a few days (by recommendation of his pediatrician). The reason she took him in today is because she could tell that he has the flu, not merely a cold, and getting him on TamiFlu as soon as possible can shorten the length and severity of the virus.

  6. Yes, there are prescriptions now that will help with intervention in illnesses that can be more serious. I was prescribed TamiFlu once, and it was just a call in to my doctor.

    I also called my GP just to let them know I tested positive for Covid as I (and probably most of us here) are in higher risk categories for various reasons. She didn’t prescribe the anti-viral medication, but did call in something for the cough and congestion and said to let them know if the symptoms got worse with any breathing issues (none of those ever occurred).

  7. That makes sense, I suppose. I just envisioned a bunch of really sick people flocking to the doctor’s office getting sick all along the way. Did not sound comfortable or wise.

  8. If they know you, a phone call consultation is usually sufficient.

    Only time I went in (doctor’s request) was some years ago when I broke out in red spots.

    Chickenpox. Never had those before. She shuffled me into a private entrance to determine what it was I had. I think I was close to fainting.
