Posted on 03/04/2012 9:04:32 AM PST by luckystarmom
I'm requesting prayers for my family. We are having lots of medical problems. My husband had prostate cancer surgery in December. The initial reports are good, and the path report indicates they got the cancer. However, the cancer was upgraded to a stage 3 gleason of 7. He goes in for follow up testing the middle of March.
In the meantime, my 15 year old daughter is having finger spasms. I thought it was going to turn out to be nothing, but last week the neurologist says it's a degenerative disease called dystonia. She's a really good flute player (only freshman in honor band, solo award at the Folsom Jazz festival), but she can't play now. She's having a hard time writing. I think the spasms are moving to her other hand.
We're taking her to both Stanford and UCSF for other opinions.
I already have a daughter with a brain injury. She's doing well now, but she still has a hard time with writing. We are also trying to wean her from anti-seizure medication.
We could really use prayers this month. Please pray that my husband's surgery got the cancer, and the original neurologist is wrong about my daughter.
Prayers on the way
Your plate is certainly full. Prayers on the way.
Get a 2nd opinion on your daughter. Make sure she gets plenty of vitamins especially Vitamin B and D3 (sunshine).
Some neuro diseases can be partially vitamin deficiency issues. Fish oil supplements are good as well. (replace all the transfats in our body)
Prayers up for you and your family.
Prayers up or you and your family.
Will certainly be praying for you and your family. Please remember our God is an awesome God! He will give you blessings through trials. I know.
Prayers for your family!
Prayers up for your family. Jesus is right beside you!
I know she is low on vitamin D. There are other conditions brought on by stress, and our house has been stressful. My husband’s job is not secure, and I don’t work. We have savings, but I’m still worried about medical expensed adding up. We’ll have cobra for a few years.
Prayers up for you and your family.
Lord Jesus We ask you to meet every need for this family.
I ask you to give them healing, comfort, and peace.
Praying for your family. God bless.
So sorry, luckystarmom! Prayers up you and your family! May he strengthen and comfort you and yours!
Know that prayers are offered for your family’s unique needs to be met and conquered for His glory.
Prayers have been sent!
Let me add to this excellent post by telling you your daughter MUST add higher doses of a quality magnesium to her diet. Magnesium deficiency is what makes our muscles cramp and twitch.
Start taking (immediately) magnesium glycinate. I like Metagenics brand but I’m sure there are others out there.
We are all drinking too much filtered water which removes our minerals and then we have a plethora of symptoms almost all related to mag deficiency.
As for your husband, and the rest of you, get on Iodoral, which is iodine and iodide. There are iodine receptors in the prostate, just like the thyroid, breasts, ovaries. Our tissues expand in search of iodine. Iodine also facilitates ‘apoptosis’ which is the natural death of abnormal cells.
Prayers for you and your family!
Prayers for you and your family
My family will pray for your family - for healing, for strength, for perseverance and for hope, faith and love.
You cannot get your D levels up when you’re dificient in mag. No matter how much you take your levels will stay low until you get your mag levels up. Some mags are VERY cheap and, consequently, do not absorb (ie mag oxide) so you need to get on a highly absorbable type.
You have my prayers.
You have my prayers.
I’ve been giving her magnesium, but didn’t know about some of the not absorbing. What do you recommend.
Prayers for your family’s health and healing.
You’ve got it! Prayers on the way!
Prayers raised for your husband, your daughters, and for you.
Praying for you, your child and your husband. May God bless you all!
Prayers on the way!
Of course we will pray for you and yours. =)
Oh sweetie, sending prayers now.
My heart and prayers are with you and your family.
God bless you.
magnesium glycinate by Metagenics. Take 6 tabs per day but build up to that as even the most absorbable mag can cause diarrhea early on.
Praying for God’s will to send healing to your family.
