UPDATE ON CHERYL

Dear Prayer Partners,

Cheryl has been released from the hospital and back home. She is doing much better.

I am amazed at how many of our Prayer Partners sent me an email or called and told me they too have BPPV.

I am also amazed at how many asked to know how to fix the “dizzy problem” because they have the same problem from time to time. Google BPPV or Epley Maneuver or search YouTube for BPPV or Epley Maneuver and you can find all the symptoms and videos of how to take care of the problem.

Cheryl said to be sure and thank each and everyone of you again for all your prayers, emails, texts, and phone calls. What a wonderful outpouring and expression of love.

UPDATE ON CHERYL

Dear Prayer Partners,

Cheryl’s doctor was in this morning (still waiting on the neurologist) as was a physical therapist, and they are convinced that Cheryl is experiencing something called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. You can google BPPV and find more than you ever care to know, but here is what Johns Hopkins Medicine has to say about it…

“Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is the most common of vestibular disorders and the most easily treated. In most patients, it can be cured with a simple physical therapy maneuver. BPPV can affect people of all ages, although it is most common in folks over the age of 60.
BPPV occurs when small, microsized calcium crystals called otoconia become dislodged from their normal location on the utricle, one of the inner ear sensory organs. These otoconia are usually embedded in a gelatin like material on top of the utricle. If the otoconia become detached, they are free to flow in the fluid filled spaces of the inner ear, including the semicircular canals which sense the rotation of the head. If there are enough otoconia floating around, they can aggregate into a larger clump. Because they are heavy, they migrate into the lowest part of the inner ear, the posterior semicircular canal. Once in the semicircular canal, they may still move when the head changes position, such as looking up or down, over the shoulder, or when rolling over in bed. It is the movement of these stones that causes an unwanted flow of fluid in the semicircular canal even after the head has stopped moving. This leads to a false sense that the head and body are spinning around
or that
the world around you is spinning around.”

As soon as the neurologist gives an “all clear” on the MRI, Cheryl will probably come home. She doing better, but still dizzy. After more manipulation treatments, a motion sickness patch, and time, she should be fine.
We really appreciate all the prayers, emails, & phone calls. If anything changes, I’ll be sure and let you know.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,

I received a prayer request for a young family here in Missouri with two children and was asked that they remain anonymous. The mom & dad are having a difficult time in their marriage due to bi-polar/emotional issues the mother is struggling with. She does not seem to recognize her need to get some help and if he brings the subject up it causes even more friction and anger. Needless to say there is a lot of tension for everyone concerned in this family. Thank you for your prayers for this precious family.

Please add Cheryl to your prayer list. She woke up about 5:30 this morning and said she was feeling funny – extremely dizzy and nauseous. We took her blood pressure and temperature and both were normal. She drank some water and lay back down. I went and picked up Graham (his first day of summer vacation) and we came back home and Cheryl said she wasn’t any better or worse and just wanted to lay still. At 9:30 she still was about the same so I called the doctor and they couldn’t get her in until 11, so I took her to the ER. She has had a CT scan, EKG, blood work, MRI, and most any other test you can think of, and all tests came back good – which is good, but they still haven’t said what the problem is. They seem to think it might be some type of inner ear issue. There is a neurologist coming Tuesday morning as well as the doctor will be back to review things again and go from there. Please pray of wisdom and guidance for the doctors, healing for Cheryl, and praise God for the peace and comfort His Holy Spirit has given to us today. Thank you in advance for your prayers.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

Here’s the latest on Kingston…

The doctors moved the shunt to allow fluid to drain because the first placement didn’t work. He made it through the surgery. Pray this new position will work.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

I hope you had a great Mother’s Day and were able to spend time with your families.

I preached the Chapel Service at St. Mary’s Manor this morning. Attendance was way down from what it usually is – I think most families opted to take their Mothers to other places rather than stay for worship. My Mom was not feeling well this morning and she was not able to attend… maybe others were ill also.

Here is an update on Ricky…

Ron,
Ricky came home on Friday. They installed a tube to drain fluid from his head. He will go back to the hospital on Tuesday for more chemo treatments. Ricky’s mother is worn out. The entire family really needs our prayers.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

Here’s an up date on 3 yr old Ricky…

Ron,
Please pray for Ricky tonight – he goes for ninety minutes of chemo. They have determined he has stage four cancer with a large tumor in the brain that extends down into the jawbone. The Drs. said he has a fifty percent chance. May God be with this little boy.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,

We had a good time of worship at Little Blue Baptist this morning. They are excited about their new pastor, John Holt. I’m praying they will once again become a might influence in their neighborhood as well as our state.

PRAYER REQUEST

Ron, I need to get this prayer request out as soon as possible. I Just got a phone call from my friend and the little boy she babysits for went in for a cat scan this morning. They found a large tumor on his brain. He will undergo surgery tomorrow at 8:30 at children’s mercy. He is three years old and attends our church. His name is Ricky. Thanks

Joyce Newby

UPDATES

Dear Prayer Partners,

Today was the first time in a long time I was able to attend Worship & Sunday School at my home church. I was privileged to teach the lesson in Sunday School and it was a wonderful time of fellowship. I have really missed seeing and visiting with my friends.

Next Sunday I’ll be filling in at Little Blue Baptist Church in Kansas City for Pastor John Holt. Then on Mother’s Day I have the blessing and privilege of sharing Chapel Services at St. Mary’s Manor in Blue Springs.

I received the following update on baby Kingston from Joyce Newby…
Ron,
Baby Kingston is still blind and has trouble turning over. His brain shunt isn’t working and he is suffering from a build up of fluid again, causing swelling in his head and pressure against the eyes. I don’t hear very much which leads me to wonder if the drs can do much more. His suffering has been so horrible and it’s difficult to think about.
Joyce
