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.
