Back in December Lisa kind of disappeared from blogger for about a month then reappeared at the beginning of January and told me she was very ill and had a terrible spill down the stairs but was managing fine and very thankful for how God was manifesting in her life. That was the last I heard of Lisa until yesterday when she sent an email updating me. Apparently the fall down the stairs was very bad and the number of seizures she has every day increased, deterioriting her health considerably. At this point in time she cannot continue her blog and I asked if I could put up a post to let those who were praying for her know what is happening. She agreed! :)
Hughes Syndrome is a disease that has not had much research done so there isn't a lot of treatment options available out there. Right now Lisa is waiting to have a surgery done that could possibly increase the quality of her life. For her, it is extremely risky but she is willing to take this risk because life, as it is for her right now, is not easy.

When I met Lisa, I would spend time at her blog reading and just praying over this sweet, sweet sister of mine, (as I do for all the beautiful friends I have met here in cyber world). I would stare at this picture and imagine Lisa running in the wildflowers with a billowing pink cloud behind her, asking God to just heal her so she can do these things again. Lisa, I think of you every time I see this picture. Praying and praying for you my sister friend and really hoping you will have recovery from this nasty disease that is plaguing your body.
Psalm 70:1 NIV
Hasten, O God, to save me;
come quickly, LORD, to help me.
Peace in Christ Jesus,
