Hello!!! Truly hope each of you are doing well and enjoying this beautifully welcomed SPRING after a looooong Winter. I am pulling out of 3 weeks of on & off fighting 2 different hard hitting flus/sicknesses….and I think I am FINALLY totally free of them because this is the first day I haven’t felt completely exhausted AND I’m finally actually feeling myself! Yesterday I had to take THREE 1 hour naps through out the day to get through….which has been the norm the past several weeks up until today! I easily made it through today with NO naps! Haha! So happy about that! I think I’m finally getting better and ready to jump back into Drs appointments and treatments tomorrow. Which btw….THANK YOU SO much to a couple individuals for your very generous and anonymous donations recently. SUCH a blessing and they are paying for my appointments and treatments tomorrow and helped cover the cost of medical insurance and some blood work I needed to get done. It’s amazing to me how God always provides almost at the EXACT moment that it’s needed. THANK YOU for continually walking this road with me by donating your time in prayers and financial gifts. I am constantly humbled by the generosity, care, concern and love showered on me by all of you and never know how to say THANK YOU enough.
As far as specific prayer requests…you can pray for my appts tomorrow….I have a 9:30 IV, 10:30 Doctors appt and then 2 specialist appts scheduled at 1PM and 2PM….also some blood work. So tomorrow’s going to be a FULL, FULL day. Pray for strength and continual wisdom. I wasn’t able to make most of my appts the last several weeks due to the flu going around here at my house and so I’m excited about getting back into the routine. I was supposed to start chelation treatments about a month ago but my lymphatic system was still too “impacted” (according to the specialist) for my body to be able to process out all the toxins from chelation. So that’s one of the biggest prayer requests right now….that my body will get to a place where I can start those treatments up as that’s one of the next biggest steps to me getting better. You can also pray for wisdom regulating my thyroid meds….I’m still getting a lot of internal shaking (which can be quite debilitating) and we’re trying to figure out if it’s thyroid related of Lyme related….I don’t want to be on my thyroid meds or increase them if I don’t have too. Another specific thing I’m hoping will clear up soon is not being able to handle stimulation very well….ie: car rides, computer screens, lots of colors and sounds from being in a crowd of people…..yeah, I don’t know how to explain it…… but the dizziness and my mind not being able to intake or process everything going on around me makes me get super sick, weak, faint and even lethargic sometimes. This symptom has been SLOOOWLY getting better over the past few months….but it’s one of the hardest symptoms for me to deal with right now because it usually means just laying down in a dark/quiet room for several hours to get my body to calm down (typical Lyme issue)….it’s getting better, but is still very frustrating and I’m praying hard it clears up soon! And, as always…please pray for continued perseverance for me. Fighting Lyme really is a full-time job and it’s SOOOOO encouraging to be seeing such big improvements…but it can also be really hard to keep fighting so hard day after day after day. Keeping my theme in mind that I’m “One Day Closer.” to getting ALL better.
Love you all so much! Thanks for praying for my appointments tomorrow.
God bless all my cheerleaders, givers, encouragers and support team!!! (That would be YOU!)
