She made a little progress over the last three weeks or so, but backslid to being worse than she has ever been. She's on a bunch of meds that have sucky side effects, too. She made me chuckle this afternoon, though. As bad as she feels the thing she's most pissed about right now is missing our date night tonight. We had tickets to go see the Vince King Elvis Tribute and she feels she's failing in her role as the family Elvis super freak.

I appreciate y'all more than I can say. Rita does too.

Continued prayers. Sometimes the emotional seems worse than the physical.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Jim, this is the first time I've seen this thread, and I'm so sorry your daughter has been ill, and for so long. But she's an Elvis fan. Wow. When I read that I thought she'd like to see a couple of the most fantastic of his live performances I've ever seen, American Trilogy from Aloha From Hawaii, and Unchained Melody, (from Detroit, I think) one of his last performances. Perhaps they'll make her feel a little better....

Misdiagnosis, ineffective treatments, bureaucratic BS, miserable days, insurance companies, feeling useless, cancellations, inconsiderate a-holes, new symptoms, expense... Rita is just tired of being tired of and is feeling pretty low. I'd appreciate a word for her when you can.
