“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the LORD; The humble and downtrodden will hear it and rejoice. O magnify the LORD with me, And let us lift up His name together.” (Psa 34:1)
From the little I know, it seems to have been a really emotional rollercoaster week for many of us. Prayers have been offered for many people and tears have been shed in both laughter and pain. None seem to have been more encapsulated more than with young Lydia. Many of us were convinced of her imminent healing and get her parents kept reporting huge and insurmountable problems upon each and every visit.
Well ... it’s time for some good (GREAT) news from her father late Last night:
”Latest Lydia news is quite unbelievable!
Yesterday they did a liver biopsy, woke her up from her sedation and took out her ventilator tube. They put her onto a high flow oxygen ventilator. She was given various broad spectrum antibiotics. She was very poorly and couldn't speak or close her mouth or lift her hand off the bed. Her hands and arms were swollen again and she was back on dialysis. They had also stopped feeding her again which meant her digestion system was at risk of shutting down yet again. We felt so low like it was never going to end. I had a good cry this morning.
We went along today hoping for a small improvement like maybe the high flow oxygen had been downgraded to the regular gentle fine tube one.
This is what we walked into.....
- No oxygen at all
- No pain killers
- Feeding tube back in and working fine
- No swollen hands or arms
- Talking normally
- Holding her phone and using both hands to type etc (she hasn't done that for weeks)
- consultant told us results of liver biopsy were no evidence of paracetamol damage. No evidence of any long term/ongoing/permanent liver damage and an expectation that it would just recover on its own as she got better.
- she asked for help to sort out her tablet to watch tv and play games etc
- She said she was bored!!!
So this is my conclusion..... God answered a huge load of prayers because that transformation from yesterday to today is unreal. I think the consultant thought it was rather incredible as well.
Speechless and feeling rather blown away right now!
There is still a long way to go in terms of her gaining muscle strength to even sit up or walk again, to eat and get full digestion going, and to fully recover, but judging by today anything is possible if God has a say in it!!!
Thank you for praying and please can I ask you to keep doing so for the next hurdles ahead. Let's hope she is finally out of the danger zone and on her way up at last.”
Praise God! ❤️
