Please Pray Now for Marietta Knight

Please pray for God to heal my mother in the name of Jesus.

We just got home from the hospital and she was moved into the Critical Care Unit today. It is a long story starting a few months back starting with a few falls earlier this year to a bit of memory loss.

The diagnosis looks like encephalitis (infection and inflammation of the brain) but they are not certain. They are continuing to run tests but over the last week (since she was admitted this last time) she has gone from not talking to not responding and is practically in a coma at this point.

She is now on low flow Oxygen and has a feeding tube (never thought I would be doing this with my mom so soon after going through all we did with Lucas... ...)

Will post more later, but believing that our God is Mighty to Save tonight! We are in desperate need of our Saviour now... ....

Lucas was born to us 5/10/07 and was soon diagnosed with CHARGE. CHARGE syndrome is a recognizable (genetic) pattern of birth defects which occurs in about one in every 9-10,000 births worldwide. It is an extremely complex syndrome, involving extensive medical and physical difficulties that differ from child to child. Babies with CHARGE syndrome are often born with life-threatening birth defects, including complex heart defects and breathing problems. They spend many months in the hospital and undergo many surgeries and other treatments. Swallowing and breathing problems make life difficult even when they come home. The letters in CHARGE stand for: Coloboma of the eye, Heart defects, Atresia of the choanae, Retardation of growth and/or development, Genital and/or urinary abnormalities, and Ear abnormalities and deafness. Lucas's anomalies included with his case of CHARGE include minor heart defects of ASD and PDA, bilateral choanal atresia repaired at four days old, undescended testes repaired at seven months old, and ear abnormalities; also he has reflux and aspirated while feeding shortly after being born and thus had a G-tube and Nissen Fundoplication at five weeks old. Additionally he has PE tubes, very low muscle tone and facial palsy on his right side. Lucas was diagnosed with Primary Pulmonary Hypertension at 12 months old. He showed us how to shine through the rain as he lost his bravely fought battle and entered into Heaven on 10/02/08. He was our miracle on earth the 507 days we spent with him.
