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.

Where is the hospital in all this? Are there patient advocates available in the hospital? Is there a family member who can advocate for Mesta?

This is starting to go toward the weird side. Mesta has rights and one of those rights is to be aware of her care, who is giving that care, knowledge of her condition and what all medications administered are supposed to be for. If am wrong will retract. Weird things going on if these rights are not being given freely by the people treating her.

So....Protective services is on the way?

I have a friend who has been through similar circumstancess. She is looking up info for me (in the same state as MM). I will post you if following info is not exact (or if I get additional info).

Mesta needs a governmental patient advocate. They are obtained through the county’s HUMAN SERVICES DEPT and will represent Mesta.

Does hospital have an ombudsman? Most hospitals have one on staff. Contact them.

Going into Easter weekend. May need to make some noise. Say it’s an emergency. Doctor causing the patient extreme stress.

Keep diary of what is transpiring as best you can -— with dates/time/ who said what, etc.

Just what I was going to post more or less - patient advocate groups are all over, and the ombudsman thing. Maybe a freeper nearby could help. Someone needs to be THERE and on HER side.

This sounds really serious and I am so worried.

Just read the updates, and I’m praying. How horrific for her (and I imagine for you as well being on the phone, and not able to help)! This is quite concerning, especially with the heart failure, and now morphine? I can’t imagine...

Dear Lord, please hold Mesta in your loving embrace, and send your angels to protect her. Amen.

Everyone working on behalf of Mesta is in my thoughts and prayers as well. {{hugs}}

Lord God,
You know every detail of Mesta’s needs, and You have promised to supply. Send angels to surround her and build a hedge about her so that no weapon formed against her can prosper. Please send help in whatever form she needs it, Lord. She is Your servant and we are confident that You will take care of her healing and this miserable hospital situation. In the powerful Name of Jesus, Amen.

Just on the phone with Mesta. Now she’s on a roll, and I don’t think this dr fellow is even close to getting away with anything. You mentioned keeping a diary, I am - sort of. Just dumping entries into my automated little thingy here. Ane the last one here is a zinger. Look:

Some person, in the middle of the night, came in and and sprayed Mesta with fluid (IV-Flush) from a syringe, stating “here is your medicine”. She seemed to have been aiming the syringe at Mesta’s chest.

This is one of several bizarre encounters. Another was a person (nurse?) who came into the room, went to the bathroom door, put her head to the door, and insisted there was somebody in there, then backed out of the room.

So some things are starting to look like the twilight zone. On the other hand, Mesta has formed an alliance with the nurses who are calling in protective services and the patient advocate as necessary. She still haven’t got the name of this doctor, but she’s convinced he’s an affirmative action guy. And he doesn’t, now, show to communicate himself but sending assistants, some of whom sound very, very weird. The nurses dislike him. I think Mesta has been recruiting new Freepers, there’s a great deal of interest in the board and they all hate Obamacare.

Anyway, there’s also been a lot of phone line interference and crashes today, and the hospital is cutting incoming calls for the day now. Mesta sends thanks, and says to keep the wall of protection and prayer up, it works :).

She hasn’t been discharged yet, and with the new heart failure, they can’t of course. Also, going to a private home, as this doc was insisting (kickback scheme?) is not going to fly either.

Thank you all, FRiends.

New developments. Will you please ping your prayer ping list to these posts for update.

posts 231, 235, 249, 267
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Almighty God and Lord, We come before your throne in that name above all names and pray you rebuke this demonic attack against our precious sister.

We ask you to send angels, ministering servants to the heirs of salvation, into Mesta’s hospital room to guard and protect her. Let her room be so filled with the presence of God that only those who fear God and purpose to do Mesta good can enter therein.

We ask you to remove this troubled doctor and his minions from her care.

We call upon your unfathomable mercy to restore Mesta’s health that she might grow old loving, guiding, and training her daughter in the ways of the Lord. We pray Mesta live a prosperous life and live in health to see her daughter’s daughter mature into Godly womanhood.

We stand in the gap and intercede for her as she as done so many times for so many in need here on FR.

Raise her up, we pray, from this bed of affliction and undertake for her what even the doctors cannot do.

We pray these things in your precious holy Name.

Just on the phone with Mesta now. Seems she’s getting her medication (and maybe even on time now). But BP is falling unacceptably low, sort of, so they’ll have to level that out somehow.

Lucy - many prayers for Mesta and thanks so much for keeping me posted... Double that for me as well LucyT. We all hope Mesta gets well soon. She is a one of a kind and FR is lucky to have her. Anyone that complains to you about being on a ping list for Mesta is not worth a dam, IMHO.

She now seems to have the run of the place, and the kitchen is giving her coffee. And salt!

Could any of this information be morphine induced dreams? Morphine does strange things to the one injected as for dreams. Seen from here in others but not having ever been injected. This needs checking though. Mesta possibly having reaction to having been injected with morphine.

No, I don’t think so. I know Mesta pretty well, and also her reactions to morphine. It’s not her first round under the knife, nor her first experience with morphine.

And her doc was removed double-dam quick. And some of the twilight-zone stuff is verifiable. I’ve listened in on it.

As I know Mesta, any conflict is likely to be over her insisting to remain lucid, even if she keeps a bit of pain. As I’ve said elsewhere, earlier, on our blog - she’s survived mid-east terrorists, south-american and mexican drug cartels and the like just to run afoul of some Norwegian office rats at Norman ASA, Johann Galtung’s proud legacy. That’s what triggered her first heart attack, in 2007. She keeled over and was left unconscious for two days until she managed to get the phone. Basically, these people were killing me and Mesta went haywire over it.

There seems to be some kind of phone foulup again, the lines to uniontown just went down. Again. Even the landlines.

These are real events? Wow, straight out of a horror movie. Glad she got a new doctor. Make sure she has a family member or a friend with her 24/7. You should do a search on both doctors.

Though I may end up facing a still milder but similar version of the same thing please add my heartfelt prayers for MM as it takes one to know on one so I relate to her currently much worse travails and need for our support. The description of her crash and fall happened to me ( more or less) in February though broken ribs and molars cannot rise to her pain, it triggers empathy and sympathy within my soul and best wishes for MM

Just talked to the hospital. They’re sending Mesta home, I don’t have the lowdown on her lungs and stomach yet, but they seem to think her heart is better. Getting her oxygen, and she has made it clear that there will be some consequences from this silly doctor guy. Dunno how great her problems will be getting up and down stairs, but we’ll see. She’s going to put in for nursing help at home.

Thank you all, FRiends :).
