BEST FRIEND
« on: June 17, 2006, 03:47:00 PM »
My closest friend has been battling Lyme's disease for three years now and its been getting the best of him. They said it was in his brain and spinal column.

He has been to all the EXPERTS- In NY and CT and Charlotte- the most eminent specialists- mostly they treated him with HUGE doses of intravenous antibiotics for two years and essentially killed his immune system, sapped his strength, and have as a last resort been treating him with total blood plasma exchanges somewhat like dialysis except his body had to make an all new supply of plasma every couple weeks and at first, it did help.

But then it stopped. And the experts have thrown their hands in the air and really told him they did not know what else to do for him.

So on the insistence of several of us and one friend how knew someone who knew someone at Mayo Clnic he somehow got them to agree to look at him. He's been there for 3 weeks and taken all kinds of tests. They don't know what's wrong with him...but they do KNOW he does not have Lyme's!!!!!!!!!! They said Lyme's leaves markers in your body...like all disease...and he doesn't have any of those so now they are looking at neurological stuff.

I need you all to pray please, for my dear friend, Andrew...please ask the Lord guide these doctors to a diagnosis and a remedy for my friend who hasn't had many good days in the last 3 years.

I thank you all for your help!

Prayers for your friend, amigo.  You've got mail.

I know God uses doctors and modern medicines in healing His children, but I also know he is still in the buisness of doing miracles and Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and by His stripes we will believe for Andrew's complete healing, and we will give all the praise and glory to Jesus the Christ! Amen!

Thanks so very much, fellas....we're still sitting on our hands, waiting...he is home now..and has finally got pain meds to ease the hurt but they are still "studying" the results of about 30 tests/series of tests and analyzing results to try to figure this puzzle out.

Thanks again.

So sorry to hear he is struggling Ray, we will certainly pray for God to lead the doctors in the right direction.

Prayers for his health to be made whole again.

Father, as we all touch and agree in the Holy Spirit for the healing of Ray's friend Andrew, we know that he is already healed and we count it done in Jesus Christ.  To God be all praise, honor and glory. Hallelujah, Amen.
