** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

ANOTHER DYSAUTONOMIA FLAIR & SEPSIS

Just a quick update to let you all know Teresa is back in the Hospital again. Tuesday was a really bad day, and when we called the Doctor, she said go straight to the ER. They admitted her for sepsis, and are treating her with round-the-clock antibiotics through her IV. They think her IV port will have to come out for a while and give her body time to get rid of the infection. She remains in great amounts of pain, severe nausea, and of course the obstacle of medical staff NOT knowing how to handle the Dysautonomia. Admittedly, though, a few of the staff are somewhat listening to our input about it, and trying to learn how to incorporate POTS into their assessment & treatment plans.

We again covet your prayers for quick healing, short hospital stay, and most of all the Divine guidance over the doctors treating her. Teresa will hopefully be back on here soon to update you and continue with the Giveaway process. Pay It Forward will still end tomorrow night at Midnight. She will hold the drawing as soon as she's home and able. More information to follow. Thanks for your patience and understanding!!!

I wish you a speedy recovery, teresa! Chronic pain is no fun... I know! Mine isn't as bad as yours, thankfully, but I do relate to pain on a daily basis.

((many hugs and warm thoughts))

So sorry you are having a hard time with this again Teresa. I'll be praying for you to have a speedy recovery and that someone there in charge of your care will either learn of dysautonomia or listen to you and your family!
P.S. Glad to see someone could use the ribbon/badge pic I made! (Dysautonomia Awareness one) and the new format looks great!
