Hey everyone! Please pray for my mom, she has been suffering from Behcet's Syndrome for 24 years now. She has spent a total of 49 days in the hospital, off and on since January 1st. A brief description from the ABDA website: Behçet's disease is an autoimmune disease that results from damage to blood vessels throughout the body, particularly veins. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks and harms the bodies' own tissues. The exact cause of Behçet's disease is unknown. Most symptoms of the disease are caused by vasculitis (an inflammation of the blood vessels). Inflammation is a characteristic reaction of the body to injury or disease and is marked by four signs: swelling, redness, heat, and pain. Since Jamuary, she has had a terrible, worse than migrane headache that she just can't shake. She recently got new medication introduced into her intrathecial pump (an implanted "pain pump" with a catheter that injects pain medication continuously into her spinal fluid) to try to help with the pain however, the new med was too strong, as it made her sleep- constantly. The hospital that handles her pain pump is 100 miles away, and we had to make 3 round trips, 3 consecutive days, to try to resolve the problem. Long story short, they withdrew the medication from the pump, but could not get it out of the catheter, so basically she is going to "sleep" for 10 days, untill it gets out. Dad and I wake her and make her eat and drink. Please pray for her UPDATE: Well, mom got admitted to the hospital Tuesday. The doc says that since she has stopped taking ALL of her daily meds, he wanted to put her in to wean her back on the nessceary ones slowly. More or less she's in to get her meds regulated, and she is much more alert, but still having quite a bit of pain. Needless to say, I haven't been able to do much as far as work on the chicken house, and now I'm working 12 hour nights for the next 3 nights. But, I'll keep you updated!
