Please pray

I'm just slipping in here tonight to ask you if you would pray for my mom.

She has been having pretty severe stomach pain (along with loss of appetite) for the past week. She went in to see her doctor earlier in the week, thinking she might have diverticulitis, as she has had it before and the pain seemed similar. Her doctor ran some tests, didn't think that's what it was, but gave her antibiotics "just in case", I guess. The antibiotics seemed to make her even more sick as the week progressed (dizziness, nausea, headaches) so she stopped taking them.

During the night last night, her pain was so intense that first thing this morning, my dad took her in to the ER.

She's been in the hospital all day, and they've run several tests on her. They've done bloodwork, tested her urine, done ultrasounds and a CT scan, and everything appears normal. They've determined that it is not diverticulitis. Her gall bladder and her kidneys are fine. The doctors seem puzzled at this point at what could be causing her so much pain.

They've admitted her until they can figure out what is going on, and she has been on pain medication all day. She'll see a specialist tomorrow and they will continue to run more tests.

Will you please even say a quick prayer for her? Some things to pray for:

-That God would bring healing to her body.
-That He would ease the pain in her stomach.
-That mom would be able to rest. (She didn't sleep at all last night and was in the ER for most of the day, also not sleeping.)
-That God would give the doctors clarity and wisdom to be able to determine what is going on with her.
-For my dad, too- that he would get some rest.

Thank you.

  4. Praying, Stacy. Let us know as you find out more. We'll keep praying.

  5. Praying now! I got to see her last night at the concert with Seth. Your mom and Dad are such encouragment to us all. Again, praying for comfort, sleep, and wisdom for doctors as they diagnos her.

  6. Thank you, girls, for your prayers!

    Oh yeah.. I should have added that they've since ruled out that it's diverticulitis.

    I'll do that now.

  7. I will absolutely be praying, Stacy. Keep us posted.

  13. Hi Stacy - Yes! We will pray and our church family, too. Love you! Q

  14. Hi Stacy,
    we will pray for your Mum. Her symptoms sound really similar to what my Mum had last year, mesenteric adenitis - it mimics appendicitis and other lower abdominal conditions. They are hard to diagnose in women who have so many parts in one place. Anyway, just something else to mention to her docs to run a test for!! love to you.

  15. Praying friend for her in pain and for you as you comfort.
