Pray for My Mom

I don't have much time, but I just wanted to ask for those of you who pray to say a prayer for my mom.

She's been sick for 5 weeks now. Her main symptom is extreme fatigue. It's coupled with occasional right sided abdominal pain. She's been to a slew of specialists and had tons of blood tests done. So far, no one has come up with a cause for her symptoms.

Her weakness has progressed from only being able to leave the house for and hour or two at the time, to not being able to leave the house, to not really being able to leave the bed except to go to the bathroom and eat. It's not that she doesn't want to do anything. It's that she is physically unable to do anything.

The plan is to admit her to the hospital tomorrow and run more tests. Keep her in your prayers please. She can't stand being like this much longer.

I am so sorry to hear this. Praying for relief for your Mom, or for the right doctor to come along and be able to help her.

Will do.

Prayers coming your way, for sure.

PLEASE ask them to test for celiac. If they are doing an endoscopy, you need to ask for that specifically to be ordered.

Oh Penny, that's terrible.
I hope that your mom gets a quick and accurate diagnosis, and then the proper treatment. The pink candle will be lit for her tonight.

Praying for the right doctor/dx. Poor Mom and you. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Mono? All likely suspects already completely ruled out?
