I need to ask that my friends here at PiP gather in circle of prayer vigil for my sis-in-law, Betty Beck~
She is my Bill's sister.

Betty was taken to the hospital with severe, excruciating pain in her lower back.
After many days of testing a diagnosis has finally been made.

She has a very rare infection of the peripheral nerves, called Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
World-wide it is only found in one or two people per 100,000.

Had she not gone to the hospital, she could have been totally paralyzed and possibly even worse as death can occur without a blood exchange that is the treatment she had done.

At this time, she cannot walk but is in an intense rehabilitation program that will hopefully rebuild her muscle strength.

Here is a link that will tell you about this disease.
http://www.mayoclinic.com/print/guillain-barre-syndrome/DS00413/DSECTION=all&METHOD=p rint

Please lift Betty in prayer that she continues to make progress and hopefully gains the muscle control back that will allow her to walk again.

*Huglets* and great appreciation.

My heart is warmed just hearing your name, Betty.  Betty, was my favorite late aunt and my husband's sweet late aunt(on his dad's side). Now his fun,active 81 year young Aunt Betty (on his mom's side) just moved here from Ohio.

May God grant you the strength to cope with your disease and treatments, while He assures you of His great love for you, Betty. It sounds as though you've been through the worst of it and are now headed in a more positive direction.  God bless you and yours.

Marge, I'll include her in my prayers but tell her to keep the faith as a friend of mine also had the same diagnosis and symptoms and ended up making a complete recovery. I pray she is as fortunate

Dearest Betty,

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I truly believe in the power of united prayer. May God in His Infinite Love, grant you healing.

By the way, my maiden name is Beck.
God bless you dear heart.

Friends~
Thank you all for the prayers for Betty and her husband, Fred~

*sigh* ... yesterday afternoon, apparently the nurse forgot to put up a bed rail and Betty fell out of the bed~

Not having use of her muscles, she could not get up by herself ... finally help came and they placed her back on the bed~

Not sure of the setbacks from the fall at this point ... but when I have more information, I'll update~

Her husband is working on moving her to a rehab center next week, if she continues to make progress~

Betty's strong motivation to get better is her desire to again ride her horse, Bandit~
Hopefully that will happen, though we all are aware that it will take sometime to regain the use of her muscles~

I've shared your messages with her and she is most appreciative~

*Huglets*

That was so careless! I hope they fire the one who was so careless. Those places don't need people like that there. I hope she didn't get hurt. Did they take an ex-ray to make sure she didn't break anything?

Dear Marge:  What a terrible thing to happen to Betty. Sheer negligence! As if things weren't bad enough for her. I am praying extra hard that this will not keep her from recovery and once again riding her horse.

Love
Betty Lou

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time,Betty.

I have to say that I am very happy to hear that you went to the hospital...and that you received timely treatment.

I would like to hear of your progress and that you are doing better.

It is nearing Thanksgiving...and I offer up thanks to God that you are in His hand.Trust in Him,talk to Him...He is with you,Betty.

God Bless,Geoffrey

I, too, am  hoping she has made some progress...I do know from family experience how hard it is to "bounce" back from the illness...and those by her side  MUST make sure the care she is given is "excellent".

Thank you dear people for finding this and leaving wonderful comments~
(Geoffrey ... so nice to see you here too)

I should have come back in and done an update to this ... but I will now -

Betty was released to home-care, with almost daily therapy~
She is try so hard to get back her strength and mobility~

That hasn't happened just yet ... she continues to have excruciating pain that prevents her from even sleeping~

She is confined to a wheelchair and hopefully some solution will be found (besides more morphine and muscle relaxants) to give her some pain relief~

We will be having Thanksgiving dinner with Betty, her husband, her sister Bee and her husband and Bill and I~

Betty has a birthday to celebrate the day after Thanksgiving ... and she is the youngest in Bill's family ... so we sure are praying that she gets better~

Thank you all for remembering her in your prayers ... she needs them~
It is going to take a LONG time ...~

We are thankful that she is home~

May each of you have a blessed Thanksgiving with those you love~

*Huglets*
