    Please pray for Shannon. Her CFS DR. told her she that she has such serious malnutrition, that it is actually life-threatening at this point.

    She has not been eating any protein - and needs to start with that. She has 2 posts written about it. At this point every bite she eats could literally save her life.

    She has been in a vicious cycle of exhaustion, and just not eating, and eating less and less.

    She has family to help her, and can start right now to improve. She wants to do that - she didn't realize things were this bad.

    She is so precious! Let our prayers be a strength for her to build up her strength, and get away from this danger she's in!!!

    Love and blessings, Judy

    I am so sorry to hear about Shannonsparkles!

    I will pray for her!

    I feel so bad...as I am missing so many needs.

    Will you please update us here sweetie?
    I ask this because I sometimes can't stay on the other board too long. It moves so fast and I miss so much...but this one doesn't move as fast.

    Thanks....Mari

    Poor dear! I will pray for her and her ability to eat a diet sufficient in nutrients.

    Give her hugs for me.

    Amen.

    Hi,
    Yes, this is an extremely urgent situation for dear Shannon. Her Dr. said that she has malnutrition so severely, that at this point even a virus could kill her!!!

    She simply has not been eating, doesn't have anorexia, but has been caught in a vicious cycle where the less she eats, the weaker she gets. And then has LESS appetite.


    The Dr. said that her body is shutting down. Her nervous system is malfunctioning, and that ominous sentence, that at this point even a virus could kill her.

    She has been eating no protein, and the Dr. wants her to eat some every 2 hours. The poor darling is so weak, she has to lie down on the floor to rest.

    This is a CFS Dr., and usually has over a 2 year waiting list; but Thank God Shannon got there now because of a cancellation.

    Shannon's brother can cook for her - and we are all coming up with ideas of things for her to eat. I am praying for every bite she takes - my eyes are welling up with tears now at her situation.

    Shannon also did mention something about wishing that she could go back into denial over it, so we need to pray also that she stays alert and follows through, and builds up her health!

    Dear Mari, your family has also been in my prayers, especially Dawn. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to reply yet, but have had 2 Dr.'s appts. this week, plus really crashed after Easter.

    I have a group of wonderful friends who are nuns - their convent always takes prayer requests. As soon as I have the energy to call, I am going to ask for extra prayer for Dawn, and others.

    Sending blessings to you and your family!
    Love, Judy

    I have been here many times since you posted this....how on earth did I miss it!!
    I am so very sorry!!

    I am praying for Shannon...this sounds VERY serious!

    Do you live near her? (edit) I just went to your profile and found the other messages to Shannonsparkles. I again missed SO much! Please look over me....I am not here sometimes...even when I am here!

    I am praying....PLEASE let us know.

    And, thank you for praying for Dawn. I received a message from Connie. She is Jimmy's MIL. She said that Jim (her husband, and Jimmy's dad) is going thru really hard time. I am really going to pray tonight and tomorrow. Jimmy shot himself this Saturday will be two weeks. I can't imagine the pain of waking up to the realization of what has happened every morning!


    God Bless.....Mari

    Hi,
    Everything about Shannon is in her post: "CFS Specialist says I'm dangerously malnourished"

    If you scroll down, there are responses, then Shannon explains more of the situation - how serious it is. She also asked for prayers.

    I lifted up prayers for your cousin Jim, and for Dawn again. It just seems the Lord keeps them on my heart.

    Blessings to you,
    Love, Judy

    I read the posts last night about Shannons problems. It is bad...and she needs prayer! I will sure ask God to bring her through this.

    I appreciate you all so very much.
    Thanks for your prayers for my family, too.

    This day isn't too good for me so far....so don't know if I will be back today...but will be praying.

    Love....Mari

    Hi,

    Shannon has been writing how things are going every day on the same post "CFS specialist says I'm dangerously malnourished".

    She just called her Dr. today to get a home-nurse, which is wonderful, but until then doesn't have enough help.

    I'm worried about all the obstacles that she has to go through to get the food she needs!

    Love and prayers, Judy

    she will definetly be in my prayers. There is no thing call coincidence! There was a reason that Dr had a cancelation! I hope she can find some people to help her along.
