    Nancy: There were a group of pastors at a retreat. They were at the dessert table. One pastor says to the other I rebuke those calories in Jesus Name. His buddy says Ah, but this kind comes by prayer and fasting. lol. lol. Feel better soon. Was praying for you this am. I am miserable today. Put a new post out about it. Would love to chat. It will happen when the time is right.
    Love ya

    I am so sorry to hear you are having so much pain. I read your post and I am asking the Lord to show you the way out of this. I don't believe He wants you to suffer like this. I just got back from seeing my myotherapist. I was asking her about RA. for you coincidentally. Her mom had it and she is very intimately connected to the whole disease. She is also a nutrition consultant for my alt dr. I asked her if there was any thing for RA and she said yes.

    If you are interested in what she had to say we can chat. Probably the earliest I could do that would be either later Friday night or Saturday. I am pretty booked on Wed and Thursday and then don't have lots of energy after a 12 hour day.

    Lord Jesus, I come before your throne knowing that you are the Almighty One who holds us in the palms of your hands. I know that you want what is best for each of your children. We ask for your wisdom and your mercy and that Cath be in your perfect will. You know she desires more than anything to serve you. I ask that even now as I pray this prayer and type it that you will reach down and give her relief from this pain. If there is anything that she needs to do on her part show her that. God we are trusting you for the rest whatever that might be for her. Encourage her tonight and give her assurance that you love her. I pray that she can find strength in the intimacy that you share with her. I am asking for her healing of this disease and I pray the blood of Jesus over her now and we bind any evil that would love to thwart your plans for her. I pray that you would give her a supernatural sleep tonight that will refresh her for a new day tomorrow. In Jesus name I pray.


    Hang on dear one. Know that my thoughts and prayers will continue for you throughout the night. I am here for you my friend. I just wish I could make the pain go away for you. I am giving you a big hug. Can you feel it eh? Take care and if you feel like it tomorrow let me know how you are doing.

    Love,
    Nancy

    Nancy: You always make me cry. You have such a sensitivity and gentleness. Your prayer put me in tears along with MY JESUS I LOVE THEE in the background. The last verse says I will love Thee in life I will love Thee in death. Man that is how I feel today. Went to the doc. He doubled the prednisone today. I hate that drug. I wll be on it for a while. I just came down on it. I am so frustrated. He said because of my history with uro sepsis ( when a bladder infection goes bad and turns into a life threatening condition and I just about died 2 years ago). I have to see a doc before upping the prednisone to have my urine tested to make sure there is no infection. I told him it was done last week and no one called. So guess what.. He tested it and it looks like I have an infection. He put me on antibiotics until the proper test comes back on the weekend. I don't get the symptoms of a bladder infection and don't know until I land in er. Pain specialist never called back. So I call him and was told he is away until Mon. They will check with one of the other docs. It is 4 hrs. later and I am still waiting. I am getting frustrated. I hate being ignored. Anyways took the mtx.( that slows down the destruction in the joints) but like the prednisone it lowers my immune system. So I really have to be careful for the next while around cough colds etc. Did I tell you? My son has a client who was a back up singer for the Oak Ridge Boys. He is singing in a Christmas cantata along with his daughter playing Mary with a full symphony orchestra at a big church in Toronto on Dec. 9. He gave Jeremy some free passes. App it is on par with a Broadway production. I really want to go but I don't know about being in a crowd. Remember how sick I got just having brunch with my son when he had a cold. Oh I just overwhelmed myself. I'll put it on the back burner for now. I would love to hear what you have to say about the info you have on ra. Is it something that you have a print out or written down? I was thinking, if it is ok with you and you feel comfortable. If you don't be honest and say no. I can meet you in the chat room and you could e-mail it to me and then I could study it. Sometimes the chat rooms get squirrely and I lose my focus. Be honest and don't feel obligated. ok? I don't want to stress you out. Chatting is the last thing you want to do after working all day. Lets play it by ear. My son sometimes comes on Sat. afternoon to do laundry. I won't know until later in the week. So lets leave it until Fri. and see what is doing. If you have something come up go and do it. Don't wait for me. We will get together sometime. Maybe the middle of the night when we can't sleep. lol. Must go for now. Fingers are really sore. Love you and appreciate you. Take care of yourself. One final thing. My son thinks he might have to go to Mexico for a photo shoot for his company. I am trying to talk him into taking me with him like some of the husbands take their wives. So far he isn't going for it. I am still praying that God will do an intervention( maybe I should go on that A+E show Intervention lol. that I can get away somewhere warm. Maybe we could take up an offering on the board. lol. Take care my friend. Talk soon. God Bless you

    When I said I would pray for you in the night that turned out to be literally. I had such an awful night of waking up every hour or so. When I woke up I prayed for you so you had much prayer covering last night. Now I need prayer from lack of sleep. LOL. I am beyond exhaustion right now so will do the best I can here.

    I just got home from my IV. I stopped by this juicing place for the first time. I haven't had much time to juice regularly with vacation and all and I am feeling the negative affects of that. This place is called Jamba Juice. They have been in this area for a year or more. I know this probably sounds horrible to you but I had a wheat grass, carrots and lemon combo. The wheat grass they actually cut like you are cutting grass in your yard. It was interesting. They used a knife not a lawn mower. LOL It tasted much different than what I juice at home and theres looked prettier than mine. LOL I won't tell you what mine looks like. Ha.

    This may be a good substitution on days when I just can't juice at home. I ran into my myotherapist tonight again. I wasn't expecting to see her. She works in two different towns and I saw her last night in my town and then out of town where I have my IV tonight. She told me that she printed up some info for you and put it in my file.

    When I saw her last night she didn't have her reference book that she needed. I also talked to this lady who is going to be giving IV's. She is a traditional nurse but will be working for my alt dr. I talked to her a couple of weeks ago when we met for the first time.

    I feel very strongly that she is a Christian. She is also juicing and we were doing some of the same things. She then offered some more personal stuff and said she had Chronic Fatigue and had been bedridden for four months until she started the alt stuff and now is functioning and working again.

    I was asking her about RA also and she had some advice also. So hopefully when I see my myotherapist again on Tues. I will have more concrete things. We can still try to talk before then. I had to cancel my chiro for Friday, otherwise I could have possibly seen my myotherapist there to get this info but I forgot I see my GP on Friday for a blood pressure check. I take meds for that. I am sure this is all clear as mud. I am so tired I am not making sense and too tired to know if I am or not.

    How are you feeling today besides frustrated. Isn't that just the last straw when you have to wait by the phone. It is so maddening when you feel like you are in a crisis. Don't you feel like you are in a crowded room yelling help, help and no one hears you or ignores you. I sure hope one of this docs called you back today.

    I am sorry you have this infection. I do the same way with those. I don't realize I have one until it is in the critical stage. I guess one thing you can be thankful for is that they caught it before you did have to go to the er.

    It sure does seem like everyone is having a hard time today. I guess Satan is on a rampage because we might just be threatening his little plans. That thought gives me renewed strength right there! There is much power when woman pray.

    Then you add the fact that we are all sick and tired of being sick and tired then boy watch out Satan!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am going to go to bed really early tonight. I am not good for much more. Know that I am praying that you get a break through. I believe that it will happen. Hang on and let's all hang together. There is much power in that.

    Love,
    Nancy

    It is 11:30pm Wed. I can't sleep and the pain is awful. The pain doc. never called back. I really had to ask God to forgive me for my anger. So I guess it is my turn to stay up and pray for you lol. I was just thinking lol. You are drinking this grass mixture juice. They call "pot" grass. Can you juice it? lol. I hope and pray by the time you get this you will have had a good nights sleep. I guess you get a good long break at Christmas eh? I bet you can hardly wait. Looking forward to finding out about the info. I appreciate the work you have done for me. My son is coming up Sat. afternoon and usually leaves around 7pm my time 6 yours. Or we can put it off for now. Like I say no pressure. Nothing worse than having one more thing to do. I am getting nervous. My docs keep telling me my body is tired from fighting. I am getting nervous that it will stop fighting and what will happen if and when that happens. You are right the enemy picked the wrong women to mess with. Cranky, miserable, sick women who come out swinging. You would think he would learn by now. Anyways he has lost. I'll probably let you know if Sonja my physio has an new info for me on Thurs. Take care and God Bless you and I am praying tonight for you. Hi there it is Thurs. am so I just edited this post. The pain clinic just called and apologized for not returning my call and told me I can take the short acting morphine as needed for breakthrough. I had one already. So stiff. It is raining+++ and the temp is supposed to drop over 10 degrees in the next few hrs. with a freezing rain warning out. Oh joy oh bliss. If it stays warm enough I am going to try to go to physio and get Sonja to stretch me out. Hope it was a good day.
    Love ya

    You're on morphine and I am juicing grass. Wow. It sounds like the 60's all over agin. LOL I sure hope you are feeling better with the stronger pain meds. I have only had morphine once and boy is that strong stuff.

    We are expecting a huge snow storm tonight. If there is no school tomorrow I am going to be really stressed on Monday as I have lots to do which needs to be done at school hopefully tomorrow.

    Today was a real bummer. Very exasperating and had nothing to do with the students. My school computer was reimaged the Monday before Thanksgiving. That means they basically wiped it clean and reinstalled all the software again. I was having some major problems and that was to be the only rememdy. We have some cyberspace out there where they back up all my files. Well............. somehow in all of this my back up files are somewhere out there because the lady that reimaged it made a huge mistake regarding which school to assign this portion of cyberspace. She put the wrong school on my computer and right now they are trying to get my files back. For a short time today I thought all my files were gone. I found them but they are totally messed up. Just a little stress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had my first round with my new health insurance today and I am praying that I don't strangle someone at this point so I need to pray about my anger also. I am out a bunch of money right now which I will eventually get but wasn't planning on not getting it back in a timely manner.

    When these types of things keep happening I really know it is Satan trying to mess with my peace.

    We just need to keep lifting each other up. I will talk tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to get out of the house. I have a deal with my neighbor. He uses my snow blower which my PT told me NOT to use right after I bought it and messed up my back the first time I used it. My neighbor actually keeps my snow blower in his garage. He can use it for his driveway if he does mine. Sounds like a fair deal don't you think?

    I will continue to lift you up and I sure hope this morphine has taken the edge off for you. The Mexico trip sounds like a plan. Can I go too???? I can pretend like I am the older girl friend to your son. Ha. I'm sure he will be thrilled about that. LOL

    Let me know how you are doing?

    Love,
    Nancy
