I am away from home
on vacation
and wasn't going to post.

my friend, Jettie, has some
serious health issues.
This is the only picture I have of her
in this computer.
In real time-she is about my age.

She is in so much pain that she 
can no longer stand and is in a wheel chair.
They are going to give her an epidural
to try and bring her some relief.

The previous treatments
she has had didn't work.
They told her that the next option 
is this epidural.

That procedure can't be performed until
the second week in July.
Meantime, she is in terrible pain.

There is no cure for her condition
and although it will not take her life
it can make her life so miserable 
that she won't be able to think about
anything else.

IF you are part of a church that has a prayer chain,
please put her name on it.
She is a Christian lady and believes,
as I do, 
in the healing power of prayer.

Thank you so much.
I promise to share some pictures of
our time away when I get home 
next week.
Meantime, say a prayer or two,
will ya?

Jettie thanks you in advance--
and so do I!

Edited to add:
Jettie just let me know that her younger sister
'blew her knee' out
and cannot stand at all.
Add one more to your prayer list, please!

I have very sporadic internet here
so don't feel bad if I don't respond
right away.

Dear Nana, You know I will be praying for Jettie and her sister.
Jettie is the dear friend who wrote the book that needs to be made into a movie!
God be with her and surround her with loving friends and family. x

Enjoy your vacation - you certainly deserve one.

Will be praying for her and her sister also. Jettie is such a strong woman w/a wacky sense of humor (love that) it takes a lot to affect her this way-will be lifting her up in spirit.

Jettie said...

Thank you for the prayers, they must be working, as pain is less severe this morning. Belinda, my sister, also appreciates the prayers. She sees a doctor on Friday, think it is the same one that did my surgery. Love and hugs and keep praying, God does answer them, just not always at the speed we want them to work.

I'm praying for BOTH of these beautiful ladies. Sometimes I think the devil works overtime just seeing how much "bad" he can bring into this earth, BUT HE ISN'T GOING TO WIN!!! Praying the healing power of Jesus over Jettie and her sister. THANK YOU for being the messenger dear friend! Sure hope you're having a FABULOUS TIME!!!!

Diana, Definitely will pray for Jettie and her sister. I herniated several discs in my back years ago and ended up with Sciatica-horrid horrid pain. I did have two epidurals and the second one finally worked. It was a slow recovery but those shots really help.
Love to you dear friend!
Hugs, Noreen

Oh yes, Diana, will pray for Jettie! May God have mercy and relieve the pain or give her Grace to endure it. It is hard to think of anyone having to go through long periods of pain. Have safety on your return home. xo I knew you were gone or I would have tried to get together with you this weekend. Next time, Lord willing!

I will definitely pray for dear Jettie! What an awful thing to deal with, pain is just so hard. I will be praying that the Lord touches her and gives her the strength to get through these difficult days, and also for her sister too. I hope you are enjoying your time away Diana, lots of rest, relaxation, and funny times to share with us later :)
