Prayers Needed

I need prayers.  Please.

I've contemplated writing this email for a few days.  Today though, God has made it evident that it's okay to ask for help from everyone.
You may or not remember in past posts that I've been having stomach problems.  First I thought it was a bug.  Then found out it was a stomach bacteria that causes ulcers.  I've been through 2 strong rounds of antibiotics.  I've found some relief, but the pain comes back.  Other than intense pain (think electric eels in my stomach), I don't really have other symptoms.  It doesn't matter what I do or don't eat, it hurts.  My doctor seems at a loss.  He's ordered blood work (third time) and a sonogram and is sending me to a GI.  Today I went in for the blood work and sonogram.  This afternoon, the office called and said he wanted to see me to discuss the results.  I'm very scared.  I go in tomorrow after work.  Anthony can't go because of work, but a friend from work is going with me.

Please pray for strength.  Comfort.  And  healing.

Aw, honey, I'm so sorry!

My mom had alot of health problems last year requiring lots of blood work and doctor visits. It's so scary.

I hope and pray that you find answers and relief soon. I'll be thinking about you!

I will definitely say some very special prayers for your tonight. I hope they have finally discovered what is wrong, but I hope that it is an easy fix.

Whatever news you get I want you to know that we are praying for you! I hope you get to update everyone soon and please know you are in our thoughts.

Hopefully this won't be anything serious and you'll be able to breathe a sigh of relief tomorrow.

Sending prayers your way. I hope they can figure out what is wrong and that it's not something too serious.
