Thank you Rosie for adding me to your page for prayers. I'd also like to thank sr/ks, GeorgiaCA, In Loving Memory, Maggie, Daddy's Girl, Cari & Judy Miller for putting me on their page for prayers. Thanks to all who have done so.
In Oct. 2010 they did a bronchoscopy while I was in the hospital and found I have both MRSA and Pulmonary fibrosis (scarring) in the lungs. I had pneumonia for the second time in 2 months. The MRSA in my bones, lungs and now my urinary tract.
The repeated pneumonia I have had yearly since I was 9 scarred my lungs. The scarring (Pulmonary fibrosis) never stops until the lungs can't get any oxygen. There is no cure, wearing oxygen will not help in the end. Having asthma makes it hard to breath too. I have arthritis pretty bad and my hands and legs give me many problems.
Even the pulmonologist said all I could do was pray and hope for a miracle. He said he has seen miracles before. I wear oxygen 24/7. I am in a power chair because I can't walk 5 feet. Now they say I have congestive heart failure.
I am more afraid than I have ever been in my life. I am not afraid of death because I know I will go to Heaven. I am afraid of the horrible pain I might have as I die. I have been raised in church all my life. I saw miracles and now all I can do is trust God that He will heal me or at least let me slip quickly and quietly away.
This is long but some people wanted to know what I am so ill from. Once again thank you for your prayers, kind words, and good thoughts.
Pray for my healing. But if God chooses not to heal me please pray my end will be fast. The Dr. said I would not be alive past April 2012 and yet here I am. I am blessed and so thankful.
*** I went to an eye specialist when I suddenly could not see. There is no hope for my left eye. The retina detached part way and has been wrinkled up for some time now. The eye doctor said my health is to bad to repair it. The cataract surgery went well on my right eye on October 1st. My eye doctor said it wasn't to good for my eye to be coughing so hard. I cough all the time because of my lungs.***
UPDATE Dec. 6, 2013 I am still struggling to do anything. My lungs are bleeding again, I am coughing most of the time.

Your welcome could you please be kind and leave a flower for my friend Cynthia 75864427 when she was a freshman at Michigan State legendary football coach Duffy Daugherty 24817256 coached his last season. Thank you
|Cari||Just checking in on you!|
I've been reading all the wonderful notes that everyone has left for you. It is quite inspiring to read so many people's stories. The holidays can be a depressing time, especially when one is so ill. Just try to remember that there is so much "joy" in your life. You have family, including the family that moved closer to you, and you have friends. Don't waste a single day of your life being depressed, please, my friend. Life is so very precious, joy every second! With all of love and hugs. Prayers are constantly being said for you...day and night, my dear friend! Try to gain strength from the prayers and the well-wishes here on findagrave. You are an inspiration to many of us.
Believe in Miracles because Miracles do happen!
