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.
Good news & thank God!
Happy Easter to all! He is risen!
Tell Mesta I love her.
(if you have time)
Salt is IMPORTANT! Plus people often lose their appetitate without it.
Prayers for your wellbeing, dear FARS.
Best news I have had all week and it was a great week.
Perhaps you can request her hospital records - and put your notes together with them. The amount of stress alone she suffered at the hands of that doctor in her already weakened condition is not good - and then her experiencing heart failure two days ago does not look good.
but they seem to think her heart is better
And she had heart failure two day ago? That's not good enough that they 'seem to think'. IMO, that doc caused it. Hopefully, this isn't about 'them' showing her the door instead of the doctor. Look how much anxiety this caused you and just reading about it makes me PO'd.
Thanks for your updates and starting this prayer thread - Mestamachine is the BEST!!
Wow, such wonderful news on such a Glorious Day!!!!!!
Happy Easter my FRiend, may God Bless!
Praise the Lord! That is awesome news!
Great news, and on His Resurrection Day no less! God does all things well!
SO happy to hear our prayers worked. I’m now going to pray that the hospital follows up and this doctor is reprimanded in a very real way! (Hopefully with the witness testimony of the nurses they can at least get him removed from this hospital’s staff - and perhaps get him in front of a review committee at the state medical licensing board. There is no excuse for this type of behavior.)
First, I am so sorry you went through all of this. I can’t imagine, Mesta. However, I am truly impressed by your strength, and courage. Through all of this you continued to advocate for yourself, and have succeeded to get them to pay attention! May your hardships during this hospital stay save others who may not be able to fight back at all from harm. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
My prayers continue for your recovery from all of this - including the traumatic interactions with this doctor and other staff. I praise God for sending His angels to protect you, and for His goodness in sending some of His ‘angels’ here on Earth to assist in advocating on your behalf.
I wish you a very Blessed Easter, indeed!
WOOOHOOO! GRRRRRREAT news! Thanks for the ping; updates! (Sorry to hear about your incident FARS)
Now that is a blessing!
Thanks for all the pings, LucyT- And may the Lord continue to watch over Mesta!
Wonderful news! I hope she takes it easy at home until her strength returns.
My sincerest prayers for Mesta.
The best news I’ve heard today!
Prais eHim indeed!
Just tried Mesta’s homephone, and she’s home! Sounds a little sleepy, but we’ll see. Now to find out how things *really* are, her hospital phone was a shout-and-listen-very-hard contraption ;).
GOOD MORNING, BELOVED FREEPERS!!!
I HAVEN’T READ THIS WHOLE THREAD YET. FROM WHAT HARDRAADE SAYS, I AM AFAID I WILL BE EMBARRASSED, IT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN I EVER EXPECTED AND I KNOW DEEP IN MY HEART THAT YOU WERE THERE AND I WAS SOOO PULLING ON YOUR ADDED STRENGTH or there was no way i could have gotten through this. you are angels, every one of you and words cannot even begin to express how grateful I am for your support!
Every day was a challenge and it will probably stay that way for some time to come. Bur I guess G-d wasn’t ready to take me home yet. The part about having the courage to change the things I can was right there front and center because I knew G-d was with me and you were with me. You will never ever know what this means to me. I can never ever thank you all enough if I live to be a hundred years old.
I know you are wondering what happened and as soon as I am up to it, I will explain it all.
Right now, Hardraade just woke me from a sound sleep and I am kind of foggy. Trying to spellcheck as I go, but slow, slow, slow.
Look for some of the greatest nurses in the world to be showing up here. Everyone I talked to khows about my worldwide family at Free Republic!
I love this place. I love you. This is truly the most exceptional site on earth and Thank G-d for all of you.
Thank you for what you gave always done for this place, for each other, and for making FR the only oasis of its kind anywhere, ever.
I am getting all mushy and talking too much, I think. The drugs, (of which there are many,) are really kicking. So I will say Goodnight, or Good morning and thank you for everything.
I’llllll be back.
May He continue to keep you 'safely' in His arms..oh thou who treads where angels fear to tread.......
She beat you to it Hardraade...she’s posted already Ha!...amazingly so...nerves and a mind of steel!
I hope you all had a very blessed Passover and Easter. G-d Bless You and G-d Bless Free Republic!
I missed you so much! Good Morning!!!
Again. Sorry for leaving out all the Freepmails I received. Cherish every one of them, and Vel, appreciate your kind words alot.
Won’t if I can possibly help it.
Am not the one to tell anyone what to do. I request though, Mesta, only what have asked in speaking with you this A.M. You are important to so many of us. Please do not overexert. Take care of yourself. We are going to need you to be on FReep-patrol and want you on FReep-patrol for decades to come. I believe you will do what is best for you. You better, America needs you!
Just saw this thread ... Thanking God you’re able to return home, MM. Continued prayers for your care and full recovery, in Jesus’ Name.
You two are blessed to have each other!
Everyone I talked to khows about my worldwide family at Free Republic! I love this place. I love you. This is truly the most exceptional site on earth and Thank G-d for all of you.
Your words mean more than you ever know Mesta, You are a Special Person!
Blessings to You!!
AMEN!! And G-d is NOT leaving you and there is NOTHING you can do about it! ;)
Now, YOU rest in the Lord and rest some more and forget about us - we will be here when you return.
What a wonderful surprise to check this thread and find YOUR POST!! Been praying hard for you to get well enough to go home.
Please, don’t do anything except get better. Wish you were closer so I could give you a big ol’ hug and lots of chicken soup. According to my grandmother that cures anything and everything!!
Please do take care of yourself and don’t overdue.....that’s like asking the sun not to shine, I know! But TRY!
What joy to see you posting.
Get well and may the Lord portect you and yours.
She may need some help getting the medications she needs, thogh. This crazy doc (and I’m convinced this is a freaking Democrat or worse) seem to be on a malignant rampage, cutting her off oxygen and trying to cut off her most important medication as she was leaving!
How’s malpractice laws in PA?
So nice to see you, MM!
Glad you are home. I will keep on praying until you are right as rain!
The Resurrection power of Jesus Christ is alive in you! Yes, YOU! I thank God for His wonderful care and for all the special plans that He has for your life. May all these plans come to fruition! We at FR certainly need and appreciate you. We’re all cheering for you, and Jesus Christ is cheering you on as well. (III John 2) Rest in His love and healing.
Glory Be to our great GOD and his Son Jesus!!!
Thank you for the wonderful update!! Take it easy Mesta..we want you back but back feeling 100 %!! So glad you are on the mend! Hugs!!
Thanks for keeping me in the loop, Lucy. And I thank the Creator for you, MM! You have been a true FRiend and friend, have educated me and guided me. You are irreplaceable!
Glad you’re finally home now.
Hopefully your recovery will just speed right along.
Thank you Lord!
