Sick and church/life
« on: June 17, 2012, 04:30:30 PM »
I have been sick longer, but my mom has been sick far worse.  We are getting better with out medications, but this still interferes with getting to church and to some extent living life (with what seems to be a somewhat contagious respiratory infection). Please pray that we can continue our recovery quickly and may pursue the fellowship of the saints and our daily life with strength and health.

Thank you.

Lord have mercy on Anastasia and her mom!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Lord, have mercy.

Sorry to hear that, Anastasia. It's going around here too.

My cough finally went away. I started spitting out yellow mucus each morning. I am down to every two days I spit out yellow, but I had a temp of 101 at the doctor's office today.  I am about to start another antibiotic.

Mom stopped her second antibiotic because of the side effects and will be seeing her doctor soon enough.  She coughs up and spits out yellow each morning.

Lord have mercy! may he grant you both swift recovery and continued health.

Dear Anastasia, with regards to the antibiotic, make sure you finish all that is given to you even if you feel better. I hope your mother has told her physician that she has stopped it too, if she has not told her physician please let her do so quickly.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

My prayers.

I hope you are trying some colloidal silver. That has always helped me as I cannot take antibiotics. BTW: when I was sick in the hospital, my doctor directed that I be allowed to take colloidal silver to stop an infection.

p.s. When I had pneumonia and was hospitalized several years ago, I was released but I knew that I was still very sick. Indeed, I went to see the doctor two days later with 104 to 105 degree fevers, and found that I had another infection that was causing me to spit up colored mucus. Summer time can be bad as one can pick up walking pneumonia.

I know walking pneumonia. I had it in 2010. The follow-up cough ended just in time for my graduation ceremony.  What is colloidal silver?

Lord have mercy.

God I thank you for creating the bees, that make propolis, that heals viral and bacterial illnesses.


(You can buy it online or at health food stores and online...  Tastes like eating honey-beeswax.  Stuff REALLY works.)
