Dear CP family, our Tina (Momto8kids) is very sick, and she asked me to update all of you here. I decided to copy and paste what she wrote me, so that you can hear it from her firsthand.
She is in need of desperate prayers from all of us. As many of you know, she and her husband have 8 children, and I believe she home schools some of them, plus she of course has the twins to look after as well.
I keep getting sicker and sicker. I barely have had the strength to walk across the room most days. Well, yesterday I got a call from my doctor (I had blood work last week). They asked that I come in as soon as possible - so I go tomorrow @ 11am. I guess my blood work is all messed up....
Remember I had a blood transfusion w/ the babies? Well I'm still severly anemic - which is why I don't have the strength to hardly walk or talk. I have no estrogen or testoterone... and just a ton of other things are out of whack. They are mostly worried because of the effects this will have on my heart.
I'm glad something came back - as weird as it's sounds - because I was starting to think it was all in my mind ;) And I'm praying whatever "treatment" they give me works quickly.....
So - that's my update! Last evening, Bobby got home at 5pm - and by 5:30pm - I was in bed. I didn't wake up until 7am. I had to pee so bad during the night - and didn't even have the strength to get up :(
I haven't read the board really in a week or so. I've scanned it through - but I have no idea what's going on... but please share with all, that I'm just really sick right now - but I'll be back :)
End of Post:
...as you can see, she is not in a good place at this time, and suffers from many other aliments that many of you do not realize. She is a strong little cookie, but after a while, even the best of us, get beat down too low, and need help to get back on track.
Tina...I think of you often, and hope you get back on you're feet quickly. You are missed dearly here on the forum, and we will be praying for you!
