This is an update for two previous prayer requests I have submitted - what we thought was a slight stroke on November 20 (my husband, Jerry) turned into a neuromuscular autoimmune disease called Myasthenia Gravis. It caused him not to be able to swallow with a weight loss of 26 pounds in about that many days. His speech was also greatly effected. Through the discovery of this disease, he has been given two of the three treatments for this disease. He will remain on an oral drug for the rest of his life. While he was in the hospital, he received 5 plasma pheresis treatments which worked like a miracle - he is now able to speak normally and swallow whatever he desires. Since this is a disease that is not curable but treatable we still covet prayers for a better understanding of what the disease is and how it will effect our lives from now on. We need to get a grip on what we need to watch for - signs that we need more plasma pheresis treatments, signs that he is getting too fatigued, and an indication of how much he can do without getting too fatigued. We want to thank you so much for the prayer support we've received thus far and have been blessed to see how many of you have been praying for us. God bless you all and may He continue to you bless you as you are blessings to all of us in prayer need.
