an answer to my waiting.

A mighty answered prayer needs to be shared!!!

This prayer request has been answered! It is something that my family and I have prayed and hoped for, for 10 years now. Last Thursday, it was answered!

The new doctor in Atlanta has written orders for me to receive IV fluids several times a month. IV fluids have proven to be very helpful for me over the years but most doctors (and I not sure why!) do not want to prescribe this method of treatment. Because I do not respond well to medications, the fluids will help build blood volume, thus increasing blood pressure and help me feel a little better.

The IV fluids work fast and their effects are not drastic but I am less symptomatic when I receive fluids and I am generally more physically comfortable.  The effects of the fluids do not last very long, though. I will most likely get a 1 to 2 day reprieve from my most uncomfortable symptoms, like dizziness, faintness, headaches and nausea. Although, the fluids are not a cure-all, lets face it, a little bit of a good thing is better than nothing at all!
Needless to say, I am so happy and I can't wait to begin this new treatment.

Thank you for your diligent prayers my sweet friends. Praise God for His mercy and goodness.



When I was waiting quietly for the Lord, His heart was turned to me, and He gave ear to my cry.
 Psalm 40:1
