I Am In Need Of More Prayers
I believe strongly in the power of prayer. I am requesting you to pray for me. If you would like to add me to your churches prayer list, I would appreciate that as well.
As most of you know, I was diagnosed with GBS (Guillain-Barre' Syndrome) 2 and a half years ago and have been trying to recover from it ever since. I struggle with constant pain every day.
The neuropathy is getting worse. I swell up in my legs and feet at night. As you may remember, in June, I was diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus. I also suffer with chronic migraines about 15 or so days out of most months.
This past week I start thowing up blood, so I am scheduled for an EGD on Monday. I had an appointment with my neurologist yesterday where I told him about how my migraines have moved from the front my head to the back of my head. I mentioned that I have been having memory loss as well as time lapses. I have gone to bed with a migraine and woke up four days later still thinking it was the next day. I have been experiencing blackouts and slurred speech. Simple tasks of such as writting checks are hard to do and other symptoms are occuring.
The neurologist did test in his office were he determined that there was something going on with my brain. He thought there might be a protien build up in my spine and brain. He believes that I have fluild pressing on my brain, so I will be doing a series of tests. The first test will be an MRI of my brain, an EEG done at the office and a 72 hour EEG done at home. I may have a spinal tap done in the office after the EEGs have been done as well.
I know that God is good and always provides.
I am asking for your prayers, encouragment and understanding during during this the next two months. If you would like to leave a word of encouragement or prayer you are welcome to do so.
I love and apprecaite all of your thoughts and comments on this blog. You do help bring some joy to my life.
If you could also leave a word and prayer for my wife she is such a support and stroghold in my life. She needs prayers as she works and takes care of the boys and me over the next several months.
