View Full Version : Prayers for my brother Mitch

A week ago, he had a large cyst removed from his neck/spine. It was full of infection and had affected all motor skills on his right side. He spent 5 days in ICU and then they sent him home because of no insurance. They assigned him a home nurse to do IV antibiotics. She visited him this morning and he was having chest pain w/difficulty breathing. She immediately had him go back to the ER hospital. The only news I've heard is that his lungs are clear and they are scanning for blood clots. Thanks in advance!

Thank you ladies for all the prayers, I do believe in the power of prayer.
A little update. It seems that his lungs are clear and heart is good.
The doctors are treating him for pain and maintaining his anitbiotics.
Since he is a diabetic the antibiotics they were giving him were mixed w/sugar sky rocketing his sugar and causing more pain!!!! DuH!!!! Diabetic don't mix w/sugar solution ... OI! Sometimes I wonder about doctors.... Anyway he's still in the hospital and I hope he stays for awhile where they can closely monitor everything! But they are saying because of where the cyst was he will have paralysis on his right side for up to a year. Right now he is having great difficulty even standing/walking. He's a truck driver by trade and this is financially devastating to his family. Keep up the prayers ladies. We so appreciate it.

Update on brother, still very sick, they now think there is some kinda spot in his lungs., It maybe more infection from the cyst? Still having intense pain, lots of fluid build up, kidneys not function well...Keep up the prayers ladies and thank you.
I may have an interesting story to add to all this, I just want to authenticate it.
