    Please be in prayer for my sister, Jill. She had an epidural shot this morning for a herniated disk and now she is paralyzed from the waist down. She can't walk, and is completely numb. The Dr. said it should have been OK by now but she isn't. She's very upset. The Dr. said he gave her an extra dose to make sure it worked. Can you believe it?
    Anyway, I'd appreciate prayers for her.

    Love,
    Harmony

    Jill has just gotten feeling back in her feet, so that is a good sign that the rest will eventually come back. It really scared her and us this afternoon. I think she'll be OK. Thanks, Dino and Faye, for praying for her!

    Carey thanks you, too, Dino.

    Love,
    Harmony

    Harmony, just read your yelp for help. I'm sorry I didn't get it earlier. I will pray for Jill's recovery. Out of curiosity, what hospital was this at? I had Cervical Blocks a few years ago at the Barrow's Neurological Institute. One of those treatments was on the same day that Steve Finley (Mr Adjustment) had his done on the lower back. I didn't know until I got home 2 hours later. I know that I would be screaming bloody murder if my Doctor had paralized me. Give Jill a hug for me. And one for you too, Harmony. Blessings, Deena

    Oh Harmony, how terrible, I am shocked at this. Please tell Jill I am praying for her, you gave me the chills.

    I had not check this board today, shame on me.

    I will continue to pray for her till I hear that she has feelings back in her body.

    What an awful experience.

    God bless you and your family.

    Shalom, Shirl

    Thanks to you too, Deena and Shirl, and Faye again,
    Yes, it has been quite a scary thing for Jill today after the shot. This Dr. didn't do a very good job. He even admitted his mistake on the phone after she called them.
    He left the office before she left. Jill, told the nurse of her severe headache, and the nurse said, maybe its the cold soda you're drinking! The nurses were rushing her out so they could go to lunch. She didn't lose the feeling as bad until she got home. My sister in law was driving.
    She fell 4 times trying to get in the house and then had to crawl to get around the house on her stomach. Thank the Lord she did this evening, get some of the feeling back in her feet but is still not completely well. The Dr. said to come in tomorrow if she is not better.

    Deena, she had it done in an anesthesiologists office who is also a pain specialist. We knew nothing of this Dr. but her GP sent her there. I went to Barrow's for my consultation and think more highly of them.

    Thanks for the prayers!

    Love,
    Harmony

    For those praying for my sister Jill, she has the feeling back now and can walk so that is a praise! We were quite concerned about that. But she still has that terrible headache from the fluid leaking. She went back to the Dr. today that gave her the shot and he said there is a procedure he could do for it, but he couldn't do it because now she has a fever! He told her to only lay down and not get up as that makes the headache worse from the fluid. She is to go back tomorrow if her fever breaks.
    I'm not sure if she has an infection now from the shot or if the fever is another complication. The Dr. wouldn't say.

    Thanks again for your prayers!

    Harmony, I need to tell you this. When I had the Cervical Blocks, I only had 2 out of the series of 3. After the second, I developed a fever and have had one since then; that was in Sept. 2000. Because I couldn't shake the fever and the pain was excruciatingly worse than when I started, the Neurologist decided they were doing more harm than good. Of course, the Neurosurgeon wasn't happy about this, he felt that I should have gotten the last one. Not going back to him was one of the best things I have done. After describing this to my Rheumetologist, she concluded that the needles in my spine are possibly what induced the Fibro. Please do not let your sister go back to that Doctor, encourage to see another one who can actually help her. I am now curious as to the name of her Doctor.Please let Jill know that I am praying for her.
    Blessings, Deena
