Again I want to thank everyone for your continued prayers for my friend’s daughter who was recently released after being in the hospital for 2 months. She has been home for a few weeks, but she still has a long road ahead of her for recovery. She has digressed since she went home because her inability to tolerate the smell of food whenever they cook makes it difficult for her to eat. She has lost all the weight she gained back in the hospital so she is back down to 85 lbs. She still cannot walk without passing out due to low blood pressure and she has become very weak from not being able to use her muscles. There has not been any progress in her blood pressure stabilizing when she stands. She is now struggling with depression because she just wants to be well again. The doctors say that all the nerves in her body were damaged when she had a severe reaction to an anti-biotic taken for an infection a couple weeks after a bout with the flu. This is the only thing they can figure happened to cause this. I don’t know if they will continue the plasmapheresis after this week and she will have to continue to have physical and occupational therapy to help strengthen her weakened muscles. The doctors are hoping in 6 months to a year her nerves will have healed. Please continue to pray for her to be completely healed and return to her job and a normal life again. Please also pray for her family as they give her all the support and care she will need in the months ahead. They have transformed their dining room into a hospital room and with the help of a visiting nurse and a home health aide, they are caring for her around the clock. My friend and his wife are so exhausted and emotionally drained, but they will not accept respite care because they do not want to leave their daughter with someone outside the family. Thank you and God Bless you all for your care, prayers and compassion.
