Prayer thread for Mestamachine
Junipersec (Mesta and Hardraade) ^ | 2013-03-24 | Hardraade

Posted on 03/23/2013 11:15:41 PM PDT by Hardraade

This is a prayer thread for Mesta. I've been on the phone with her for hours today/yesterday (my sense of time is getting a little frassled), and we need a great amount of prayer.

Mesta went down hard a few days ago, I was on the phone when it happened and I heard her hit the floor and scream, then a bunch of running, slamming doors and chaos before the line went dead.

It was a couple of days before I was able to get her status and got my proper links to her hospital, and it doesn't look good. If she survives this time, she's going home to a cold house, at the edge of eviction, dragging an oxygen tank. She has a sort of a seal-team medical coverage, but no pension whatsoever. As for now, they're still doing tests, there's a team of doctors working on her and she's in and out of consciousness much of the time.

There's more detail on our blog, but you may have to dig a little.

MM, just learned about the challenge you face.

You have given us much that is important and good, and now it is our turn to give to you.

In addition to our prayers, feel the concern, love and strength from your many friends here on FR.

Feel it, lean on it, rest on it and use it to be with us.

I tend to leave the s off of words (FRiend should be FRiends) when trying to spell. Ask Mesta to come get me back on the right track to improve my speellling. Thanks Hardraade. Am grateful Mesta has you to look after her.

Just spoke to the hospital, and she’s sleeping. What I know is that she has a bad lung infection that doesn’t respond well to antibiotics, they’re hoping they’ll not have to operate on her stomach, and her heart is all up and down the place. And she can’t hear much or see much.

So when (if) she gets out, she has to have an in-house oxygen system plus a tank.

As some of you know, we’re trying to get a fund going for her, we’ll just have to do it as a separate bit so we don’t mess up FR. Springfield Reformer is handling that end.

As for me, I’m sort of falling apart without her so I’ll just keep banging the phones. She can’t even hear my IP-phones, so it’s down to old landlines.

Thank you for all the prayers, FRiends.

I sincerely appreciate the update Hardraade. I will keep both you and Mesta in my prayers. Please keep me advised. Am shaken with this news. Please tell Mesta how much all her FRiends miss her and love her. Mesta has been a true blessing.

Thank you for the update, Hardraade. Even if she never does anything on FR ever again, the MOST IMPORTANT thing is she gets well and lives life. I will pray more for her, and also for you to feel comfort and and peace in God’s hands.

Will she need oxy always or just for some time?

(There was or maybe still is, a vicious vicious virus this winter that infected many and caused very serious illness including lung infections. Maybe that’s what she had, I had it and a good friend had it very badly, everyone around here got it.)

It pains my heart to know of both of your sufferings.

Quick update. Just managed to get through to Mesta, everything is still very unsettled and her hearing isn’t good. But she’s managed to walk a bit on a walker today.

She’s a fighter. Most people taking the damage she has would have been dead.

Quick update. I’m on the phone with her now, but she still has no hearing and there is some terrible confusion over what they want to do with her. They’re supposed to send someone to explain, but that has been two hours.

Very frustrating.

I spoke to Mesta today, and she asked if it would be possible to keep her thread in one of the sidebars for a bit. She misses you folks.

She’s still hard of hearing, but the total deafness seems now to have changed side, so things are happening. Still problems. Still trying to clear up her lungs, and her blood sugar keeps going up, but I think that’s temporary. They keep rattling off numebrs I don’t understand (I’m used to mmol, not gr).

One of her docs has displeased her rather a lot. We’ll see how that turns out.

Thank You for the update. The Jerusalem Thread is praying for Mesta Daily, and I have politely requested that the Mods put this thread on the sidebar. I don’t know if that is within FR policy...but it never hurts to ask!

She got *three* whole units of blood, and her phone conked out in the middle of the procedure (something about the hospital killing incoming calls at a preset time), but her vitals are now stable for the first time and she’s resting quietly.

Obviously, she had lost a whole lot of blood.

Thank you all for the prayers!

Father G-d, Please hold this avid troop supporter in Your loving hands. Guide all her medical care and clear the path of resolution of all her stressors — financial, physical, familial. Provide angelic protection for her, Lord G-d, and count her among those whose heart has provided care for those who care for us in the armed services. We lift up our prayer to the eternal one G-d of Abraham and Isaac, Amen!
