    My mom had anuerysm surgery in October. I feel very blessed that they found the anuerysm before it ruptured. She had many complications after her surgery and is having a hard time healing emotionally. She was always a very active, independent person and this has really slowed her down and she doesn’t like it. It is a VERY SLOW recovery process and she is having a hard time seeing the improvements. My prayer is that God allows her to accept her life as it is during this recovery time and that she continues to heal. Also, I pray for my dad who is her caregiver and is doing an excellent job. God bless him that he continues to be patient and that he continues to have the strength and good health needed.

  4. I’m a 57 year old father of two kids living in India sending a prayer request to you to offer prayers for me .I have heard that many faithful are getting relief or deliverence from their ailments and hardships by offering prayers for those who request it..Since we are far away here in India, we can’t come over there. I have multiple ailments,such as liver cirrhosis,gall bladder stones, renal calculi and diabetics.Folowing financial hardships and misfortunes for the last few years, my family and my self are very badly affected,and so life is not a happy one to us,though we have abundant faith in God.Since we have a heavy debt burden,my wife and children are pressing me to sell off my ancestral home for money,where we live for decades, but following sentiments,whenever I think about their move,I feel shocked.I want this to be avoided at any cost, but instead an early financial breakthrough should be happened by the blessings from heaven..Needless to say,prayer is the ladder leading to nearness of God..Our Lord has said that,if more than two persons assembled and pray together,He will be there.So I believe that there is more effect for joint prayer.In Mathew 25:40, our Lord said,’truly I say to you,as you did it to one of the least of these my bretheren,you did it to me’.So I beg you all there to pray for me for a quick and miraculous healing of my all ailments,and also for an early financial breakthrough to end our sufferings and hardships in life.I expect your valuable cooperation in this difficult period of my life.Thank you .Looking for a reply.

    I have recently written Eleora’s story which I am going to report here it is mostly about all her medical conditions, but I just wanted to state how amazing she is and how hard as a mom it is for me to keep the faith and not question, Tomorrow she is scheduled for another surgery because her spleen has detached and started to twist and die. She has already a compromised immune system so we can not afford to loose the spleen. Last month she was diagnosed with a rare and deadly blood disease. Well here is her medical story:
    Eleroa’s Story
    I will start this story as most of them do with the birth of our beautiful baby girl. Eleora was born at 38 weeks on August 27 2002. Of course she had to do it in her own way being breech and hearing impaired. Immediately the doctors noticed she wasn’t breathing well and saw on an x-ray that her heart looked a little strange. She was born missing the wall between her left and right ventricles a VSD (ventricular septal defect). By 5 ½ weeks old we could no longer keep her out of congestive heart failure and she couldn’t get her weight above 6 lbs. It was time for open heart surgery. The recovery time should have been about 4 days but of course Eleora spent 30 days in the hospital mainly because of seizures and a floppy airway. This means that every time they tried to get her off the ventilator her airway would flop closed and she couldn’t breathe. Then she got an intestinal infection which caused her to be unable to eat for 16 days. During our stay at Duke University hospital recovering from heart surgery we were told that Eleora had Partial Trisomy 13 with a partial deletion of 9. For months after we went home I tried to find any information I could about what her future would be like. There was nothing about her specific genetics.
    Next we got her hearing tests done and found she needed hearing aids. Then came glasses, really bad reflux, Kidney reflux, Umbilical hernia repair, tonsillectomy & adenoidectomy (for sleep apnea), multiple ear tubes, Nissen fundoplication for reflux, and Strabisma surgery. When Eleora was 4 she started getting aspirated pneumonia 6 in 6 months that is when she got her first g-tube. When the surgeon x-rayed her belly for the g-tube replacement he found she had malrotation of her intestines. So he fixed that when he placed the G–tube and her appendix was on the wrong side of her body so that had to come out.
    For years Eleora had EEG’s and the doctor would say her brain waves are irregular but it looks like that is just the norm for her. Then they put her on Seizure medications and her brain waves went to a more normal looking wave. She has multiple types of seizures and now has a VNS (Vagal nerve stimulator). The first VNS got infected, was taken out and replaced a few months later and now it works great. When putting the VNS they surgeon had to move the nerves in her neck to attach it to the vagal nerve and she developed Horner’s syndrome. For a number of years she did really well with than in 2012 her belly started swelling really big we were in and out of the hospital for 7 months she was in horrible pain and every x ray showed just a bunch of air in her intestines. Finally her regular surgeon got on the Phone with doctors at Boston children’s Hospital and Duke University Hospital they diagnosed her with Aerophasia she was unable to get rid of air trapped in her stomach and intestines. It got so bad the pressure of the air stopped her feeding pump from working. They did something never done for this disease before and put a g-tube button in her cecum. This way we can use it and her g-tube to drain air and keep her comfortable. While in there the surgeon found that Eleora’s intestines had fallen and wrapped around her stomach.
    The newest and latest issues started in 2014 We brought her to the emergency room because Eleora had a high fever and an intestinal bleed so we couldn’t keep her comfortable at home. The hospital doctors noticed that Eleora’s platelets were at 16,000 the normal range is 150,000-400,000. They were quite worried and not sure what was causing it after a little while it dropped to 7,000 and she started getting spontaneous bleeds. We were transferred to UNC Hospital where they Hematologist diagnosed Eleora with Atypical Hymolotic Uremic Syndrome. Of course another very rare syndrome where the bone marrow makes too many platelets but uses all the platelets it make to create blood clots that can cause damage to major organs. Luckily the clots went to her toes and not anywhere major. The treatment for this in the past has been to replace the platelets and within a year the kidneys fail. Luckily a new treatment has come out called Solaris/ Eculizmab it is an infusion Eleora gets weekly. We hope to go bi-weekly or monthly at some point but for now she can’t go any longer than a week before her platelets start to drop again. When we went in to get her first out of hospital treatment they were unable to get an IV in her so we had to have a port places.
    The newest diagnosis Eleora has is called Wandering Spleen (I know it sounds like a great name for a band). The ligaments holding her spleen in place have loosened and detached it is supposed to be on the upper left side under her ribs but is now floating in the lower left quadrant. This is going to need to be fixed, and this brings us to the present Eleora and I are hanging in the ER waiting for them to send us up to the floor. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow but we have to get her platelets back up.
