I am Jess's sister, I told her i would update you all while she can't. She said to tell you all, that, she hopes you are having a good week and hopefully have some relief and are well, and those of you that aren't you are in her thoughts always.
anyways, this is whats going on.
Jess had to go into hospital a week ago because her body went into shock, it started with her pain increasing (abdominal) and made her have many bad SVT attacks causing fainting spells. She started vomiting and couldn't keep anything down her body just rejected everything. She eventually stopped being able to get anything past her throat and became so dehydrated from it she became unconcious, we got her to hospital with her drifting in and out they put a drip in and admitted her to the hospital. After she was more with it, the doctors and nurses pressured her to just drink, telling her she was putting it on and everything! This upset her so much as Mum and I could both see how much pain she was in and physically couldn't swallow. She put up with two days of being told to get over it, still trying and just soldiering through like always. They tried to put a nasa gastric tube down, but it wouldn't go. They did Xrays and realised that her throat was almost completely blocked with swelling for extreme scar tissue from oesophagitis, and it would be impossible to swallow, yet the doctors still didn't apologise. They did lots of tests and she's closely monitored to make sure it doesn't interfere with her breathing until they can remove it. She has internal bleeding that has been caused by whatever is putting her in so much pain which they still aren't exactly sure of but are thinking it may be a very very rare disease that they have only ever seen a few times, I cannot remember the name but i am sure she will tell you when shes back! It has infected her liver and is making her heart do some strange things. But no need to worry, this girl is a fighter, Through all this and even more i haven't said thats been going on, I haven't seen her cry once or tell me she's scared or sick of this. I tell her i am scared for her and I want her to be okay and i just cry for a long time some days, she will just pull me closer and hold me, telling me she is going to be fine, and everything happens for a reason, she tells me thats its going to make her so much stronger so to see it as a positive. It brings tears to my eyes to see a girl this young going through this, but it brings more tears, the ones that say i'm proud. To see her so incredibly strong.
I have learnt such a lesson from my little sister, normally it would be the other way round, But over the years she has been through so much but always has learnt to put on a brave face and smile, if someone is down, her problems get left behind and theirs are in her arms and heart. This girl is amazing and i am praying for her everyday so please, join me. She has lost 12 kilos in 10 days and she can't afford to lose it. But with her strength i know it will be up hill from here.
Once she reads what i have posted i'l get a big spanking when shes strong enough! :) But i couldn't help myself. Shes incredible and i could never live without her. At our school she has inspired basically everyone, including teachers etc. Because of her strength and amazing personality and loving heart, she luckily has so many people behind her and encouraging her to keep going through this, EVERYONE that knows whats going on is there for her at school and its just amazing to see, but i can understand why. I adore my sister so much please pray for her <3
Jess, when you see this, i'm sorry but i just needed to tell people how much i love you instead of just telling you. your incredible.
Hope you are all doing goodd.
