Skip to comments.Prayer thread for Mestamachine
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.
Since you did not respond to my PM I will now ask you publicly. Please take me off your ping list, again!
My apology, eastforker. You *were* removed after your request, however I used an old ping list for this thread only, hoping to notify more freepers about MestaMachine’s illness.
Wow. I was kinda hoping you would’ve said a prayer for MestaMachine who is extremely ill. I’ll bet anything it was an oversight on LucyT’s part. It’d be nice if you asked the mods to remove your post.
I think you need to mind your own business, it is evident you haven’t a clue.
Thank you for the ping, Lucy. I knew something was up with Mesta from seeing posts here and there on other threads. I had no idea what was going on though - how serious things were! I’ve only been able to stop by FR on occasion as of late.
I have prayed for her (as I said I knew something was wrong), but now my prayers join with everyone else’s with specific intentions... for her Healing, Strength, and Peace in God’s embrace; for the doctors and other medical staff for the wisdom to know how to help her best; and of course for Hardraade as well, what a wonderful friend you are to her.
Thanks for the update. Prayers sent for Mesta’s healing.
My God! I just heard about this. I really know nothing about Mesta except that she was devoted to the truth!
Thank you for your prayers, miss marmelstein. And all of you guys. Just getting the start of the day from the Hospital now, they just opened for incoming calls to the rooms. I think, not sure but I think, Mesta’s hearing is clearing up. Hoping for a good day :).
Message from Mesta: she’s doing the best she can, and asks you to keep the prayers coming. She appreciates them very much.
Thank you for the update ping Lucy! Just love our Mesta and pray that she gets better soon!!
Prayers up for Mesta.

Lucy—thank you for the ping. Hardreade—sending prayers to Mesta this Good Friday. G-d be with her (and you). So very sorry to hear of her health troubles.
hope pray all turns out alright!
Mesta just got up and went to the bathroom. And back again. And nobody even knows what she did. She’s misbehaving, she says :).
Just the smallest update is HUGELY APPRECIATED!!!
Please Tell Mesta we love her and miss her!
F.R. Isn't the same without her.
Prayers up for Mesta!!!
Lucy - many prayers for Mesta and thanks so much for keeping me posted...
Prayers for God’s blessings at this time.
That is Great! More prayer to our Lord! Praises Be To You, Lord; You Continue To Amaze Us All. Amen .. Amen.
I’m restraining myself from sending eastforker my opinion of his writing and his existence. Don’t want to contaminate the prayer thread with my contentiousness.
Just ignore him. He’s a self-impressed fool.
There’s that fighting spirit. I will keep her in my prayers. Miracles happen; we’ll see what happens with the need for constant oxygen.
Thank you afor the update.
Dear Lord, please cast Your merciful glance on the dear soul Mesta Machine and take care of her.
The three positive signs to getting kicked outta that place:
1) bathroom - check
2) misbehaving - check
3) demanding a big fat juicy hamburger - let us know on this one.
I sure hope things are getting better. Still, this has taken its toll on her.
Now, I’m constantly lobbing stuff at the folks who are culpable in this, and there is a lot to lob. I’m very mildmannered these days, but one thing has not changed. So if anyone wants to grab those articles and put them on FR, it’s fair game, if Jim will have them. But I am going after folks who may feel tempted along the road of legal actions, perjury and stuff. In fact, one of them has threatened perjury before. The good thing is that I have hard evidence to back up what I’m saying, so it shouldn’t be hardly more than a nuisance.
She’s now getting ready to leave. Seems one of the doctors have gone off the rails and onto a campaign of terror, taking her off her allocated medication and telling her he’d throw her out immediately if she didn’t have an IV in her arm. He’s been doing this for a couple of days, even *triumphantly* telling her that cutting her medication might kill her, but then being reined in by controllers at the hospital. She tells me she’s leaving as she no longer feel safe there.
SR, I think she might need some advice from you.
Sometimes all it takes is a taste of honey. A prayer Mesta likes honey. Honey cures anything, just about. A taste of honey and walk away. She’ll be up and chasing the person with the honey if Mesta loves honey. Immediate discharge assured.
I don’t know. It sounds like this doctor might be at the edge of actually getting physical, and he sounds deranged to me. Mesta calls him “gay as a three-dollar bill”. She’s actually pretty near a panic, and the protective services are not showing up fast, although they should be, and had to, earlier.
Missed that info and the earlier info about the doctor. Is there someone, on the way, to work on this situation? My thought is Mesta should remain calm, voice her concerns, and have someone helping to set things straight to alleviate her (Mesta's) concerns.
May your team of doctors be guided by the Great Physician’s hands. Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, be with thy servant in the hour of her distress and give her strength.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.
Does Mesta have someone - friend or relative - in the hospital to act as her protector? Sounds as though she needs that very much. If there is no friend/relative available, is there a trustworthy freeper in her area who could do that service for her?
My little circle, both IRL and online, is being hit hard right now for some reason.
Please, if you will ... keep us updated.
The hospital should have a patient advocate available to her. One of her nurses should be able to get this person to her immediately. It’s concerning that you said that protective services had to be called earlier. Please keep us updated. Prayers continuing.
Back to the thread.

Thanks for the ping, LucyT. Prayers up for Mesta!
Prayers up for our Mesta!
You are still in my Prayers.
Mesta went into heart failure in the middle of all this, has gotten a gazillion shots and is now waiting for morphine.
The doc seems to be an Obamist. He said a few things that no normal person would be saying, thinking that Mesta couldn’t hear. But she reads lips.
Among other things, that she didn’t have nurses at home, so she shouldn’t have them in hospital. Also, that she should get herself home, if she wanted medication.
Dunno what next.
Still praying for you. Hopeing you get better soon.
Stay calm like the still water and you can overcome
