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.
Prayers going up for you, MM. Please let us know what your nurse says.
Mesta, lifting you up before our heavenly Father..........

Geez. Heres the deal.
For the past three days, my nurse and my therapist have been unable to hear a pulse using a stethoscope or by using their fingers on pulse points. Nothing.
What the doctor wants is a spinal tap to test my bone marrow because I dont seem to be making enough blood and my own blood seems to be literally evaporating.
BP at dangerously low level...not exactly a good thing, but at least I know no vampires will be seeking me out any time soon. Silver lining to every dark cloud.
I will also receive two more units of whole blood to sustain me until they can figure out what is going on. So tomorrow, on to the ambulance and back to the hospital for what they say should only be about six hours, then home again with my nurse and a monitor.
I feel like Roseanne Rosanadana. Its always something.
PLEASE keep praying. Please.
And thank you all for everything.
Prayers for you, Mesta. God has your name written on the palm of His hand.
Thanks for the ping, LucyT. A prayer for you Mesta.
Thank you for letting us know. Prayers continue...
Ping for Prayers!
Mesta, do what must be done.
Then get home and have a nice cup of tea.
More prayer for you, Mesta.
I don’t like the way that Obamacare co-pays have eaten away at what was supposed to be a very decent health insurance. Obamacare is simply another leftist way of stealing even what is nailed down.
Urgent and sustained prayers for you, sweetest Mesta!
You’re so strong and brave that God’s hands are surely upon you.
Lord, hear our prayers.
Posted current status on the blog, plus a thanks to FR, JimROb and you all. And a link to FR, let’s see if the rolls grow :).
God bless you Mesta and know that you are included in my daily prayers and I will be asking prayers for you from others with whom I communicate often. Don’t worry about us, just take care of yourself and trust in God.
Big hugs my friend.
Prayers still going up for you!
Mesta, you’re in my thoughts and prayers. Keep up the fight.
More prayers up!
I don’t know where to find the blog.
Signing out for this night, with promise to pray.
God bless and keep you, Hardraade.
Thank you, Onyx :).

Just the last post. Been pinging Mesta for hours, so they may have kept her overnight or she’s just blown out.
Still can’t raise her at home, and she’s not at the hospital.
Whew. Just got this from Mesta. Now I can get coffee :).
24 hour monitor using a telephone modum.
No calls in or out and complete bedrest after spinal caused one of the most terrible headaches I ever had. Out cold most of the time.
Havent eaten yet. wobbly and sort of nauseous. Going to try some boullion first.
Thanks so much for blog site and update. I’ve just signed in today!
