days of hope

I have so many praises to share with you all. They are all so wonderful!

First, my sweet friend Rachel is having a baby! I am so, so happy for her. Rachel and I haven't seen one another in quite a while but I have known her since we were teeny babies. She is so sweet and kind. I know she will be a wonderful mother. Here is photo of Rachel and her husband Keith.

Do you remember this urgent prayer request a few weeks ago? Well, the FDA reconsidered their decision and they ARE NOT taking the medication ProAmatine off the market! This was such wonderful news to hear! I am so happy for all of my fellow Dysautonomia friends who take this.

And yes, I am receiving my IV fluids each week. Yesterday was my 5th week. (And that is why I am online today!) I usually get about 1 to 1 1/2 days where I feel a little better. And that for me is a BIG miracle! I am online...who knew that would be a milestone! But I take what I can get!!

And finally, my biggest and happiest news...
2 weeks ago, I was able to get dressed and get out of this house for the first time in over a month!!! I was so, so happy! I was in bed for days after but I didn't care. The fluids that I had received on Thursday allowed me to feel like kicking up my heels the next day! It was magic! See for yourself!

We went and had visited my sister at work and we had lunch with her. I don't really like this picture of me (it is far from flattering!) but it will have to do! ha!

Thank you for your prayers and support. And if I need to reply to an email, I promise that I will!

Therefore, I will allure her,
and bring her into the wilderness,
and speak tenderly to her.
And there I will give her her vineyards
and make the Valley  a door of hope.
And there she shall answer as in the days of her youth,
\as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.
Hosea 2:14-15
