Request for Prayers for Healing
03/19/2012 | MarilynBr

Posted on 03/19/2012 10:43:39 PM PDT by MarilynBr

My 95 year old mother and I are into the 19th day of dealing with a difficult case of the flu. Although we had flu shots as we do every year, the variety of flu we contracted must have not been protected by the vaccination. The fevers have been gone for over a week, but the cough just is not lifting. It's much less but the coughing just won't come to an end. My mother progressed to the beginning of pneumonia but that seems to be gone after treatment with antibiotics.

My mother has been to the doctor 3 times, and I have been twice.

But so far we have not been able to get completely finished with this flu.

We are asking for prayers that the flu will finish running its course and that we can start to get strong and well again.

Sounds like the same thing my wife and I had. I got it first, and she got it a week later. It’s just vicious, but after more than three weeks, the fever, congestion and body aches have finally passed. However, we’re both still coughing our lungs out and have no energy at all. I waited it out, and she got prescription meds and steroids from a doctor, but there seems to be no difference in our healing rates. My sympathies to anybody who catches this bug. It’s one of the worst I’ve ever had.

My prayers offered to you and your dear Mom! God Bless you both. I had an especially bad case this year myself. The congestion in my lungs was terrible.

Psalm 103:1-5

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy Name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Speaking the Word of God and the Promises of redemption and healing over you and your beloved mother.

Exodus 15:26 ~ For I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Amen and Amen

Prayers up! I had the flu shot once, and I got the flu twice that year. Not only did I get it, but I got it so badd, it really affected my asthma. I generally have very mild asthma, but I experienced multiple attacks that time. It was frightening. I won’t even get the flu shot now.

Thank You.

Oh my, prayers lifted for you both! Years ago while visiting family, the eldest and I picked up a coughing type bug from the Grandpa, and gosh, it was so hard to beat.

Don’t know where you are, or what your weather is like, but if getting out daily into the sunshine isn’t an option, then you might find some Vitamin D3, Vit. C and even a little old CodLiverOil : / to be helpful.

Take care, and may God bless you both.

Can you and your mother tolerate MEGA doses of Vitamin D3? (short duration) Resveratrol? Curcumin? NAC?

All available OTC, but given age, talk to MD and make sure not harmful interaction with prescriptions

I read of these as prophylactics/home remedies on a Flu pandemic site and have used them successfully to ward off illness for several years, especially the Vitamin D3

Praise GOD for a good report DD!!! I am so happy about this news. ( sorry I have not been up to speed lately here on FR)...

Praying for you Marilyn and your mom. I have heard of so many this year that have this vicious flu. May God's Healing Hand be on you and your mom.

As always, thank you BG for the ping.

This is an update for everyone. Although the coughing has not come to a complete end, we are both feeling quite a bit better in that regards.

I’m regaining my energy. Mom is showing some improvement in strength. Her appetite is getting better but not quite back to normal yet. I’d appreciate prayers for that.

I’m hoping we will be well enough to go to church on Sunday. We haven’t been able to go in 3 weeks. I am missing it so much.

My Mom’s 96 birthday is on Saturday, but I think we will postpone celebrating it for about a week out.

Thank you everyone for your prayers. It really helps.
