Prayer Request

My 18 year old sister was admitted to the hospital yesterday for suspected meningitis. So far the tests for that have come back negative, even though it is presenting itself exactly in this way. She is positive for Mono, but is having severe pain, hardly manageable by morphine, and blackouts.

Her blood and spinal fluid has been sent to the Mayo Clinic for further testing, and she will be seeing a Neurologist today.

My sister has the highest pain tolerance of anyone I know, and she is in bad shape. Because I am pregnant I cannot go in and see her, this has been incredibly difficult for me and my sister because we are so close.

My family is tired, exhausted, frustrated and worried. We are all continuing to trust in God, the ultimate Healer. But we would appreciate your prayers, we covet them.

.the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." ~ Romans 8:26

  1. Oh wow, we will keep her in your prayers! That's so frightening - I pray it's just mono and not Meningitis! (I say "just mono" mono is still terrible, but the lesser of the two evils I think!) Hope she is healed quickly!
