Prayer for my sister

One of my younger sisters has some special needs, and a few weeks ago she had a serious problem with eating, and she crashed. Long story short, we thought we'd end up in the hospital with her, but she turned around at the last minute and was able to get back to normal. We thought that was it. Well, today she didn't eat well, and she "crashed" at about 2:00 this afternoon, we calld the doctor and he told us what she needed, but she hasn't gotten any better, infact, she's been getting worse. I'm really scared, as I've only seen her like this once (and she ended up in the hospital that time) and my parents are talking about taking her to the hospital if she doesn't get better soon. If you could pray that 1, my sister starts getting better and stays out of the hospital and 2, that we can figure out why this is happening, we would be so thankful. I know I'm just some random person on the internet, and none of you know me personally, but you don't know how much I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

Jesus' Princess

Jesus' Princess, you are NOT "just some random person on the internet". You are part of the AIO community and, while not as well as in person, we do know you and care about you. I will pray for your sis and your whole family though this. What do you mean by "crashed", if you don't mind me asking? Either way, she will be in my prayers.

Well, we use the word crash to describe what happens when she can't eat, get's cold and clammy, and basically just get really sick. It's hard to explain but currently she's screaming/crying because she can't get comfortable. (By the way, she can't talk or communicate with us very well, so we don't know exactly what it feels like and all that. we can't ask her) Thank you, I appreciate it alot.

oh, ok...wasn't sure if you meant she got sick, fell, went unconscious, etc. Anyway, thanks, that helps me know what I'm praying about.

Thanks for asking :)
She's about the same, not eating much, having a hard time sleeping, and pretty lethargic in the afternoons. It's been weird because she'll wake up around 2:00 in the morning and just start screaming (when I say screaming I mean crying really hard, not like screaming in fright) but we don't know why. So we'll have to get her up and calm her down and settle her back to sleep. So We still don't know what's wrong, but we called the doctor and he gave her a medication that seems to be helping some, Yesterday afternoon instead of being lethargic, she got really hyper. The hardest thing about all of this is that she can't talk to us and say why she's not eating or sleeping etc...

Thanks so much for praying, continued prayers are very much appreciated.

Thank you! an update, She's much better now, almost back to normal, Praise God! But we never figured out why it happened, so hopefully it was just a one time thing. On another note, we just found out that she has a problem with her heart, she's been turning blue in her hands, feet, and lips a lot so my parents took her to the doctor and they found a problem. They scheduled surgery in 6 weeks, we're nervous about it, heart surgery is a big deal, but she needs it so we're going through with it. Maybe if you could pray that 1, she doesn't get sick between now and then (she has to be healthy and strong going into it) 2, that we (my parents mostly) would have a peace of mind about this, and 3, that her condition wouldn't get any worse before she has the surgery, that would be great.

Thanks :) I don't even know where to start right now, My sister's been doing great all summer, but on Wednesday she started getting a temperature, not eating, and basically crashing. My dad is in Texas for a conference right now, and so it's just my mom and us kids for the week. Well we thought she was better until tonight, she's got a temperature again, won't eat, and is on the verge of a crash again. We don't know what to do right now, because we're supposed to be leaving at 6:00 am. tomorrow morning to go to something we've been planning all summer (it's a 4 hour drive) but she's seriously sick again, and my dads in Texas. Anyways, if you guys could pray that she improves and doesn't have to go to the hospital, and also that we would know what to do about tomorrow, if we should leave or not, that would be greatly appreciated!

I feel like I'm always asking for prayer for her, but it's really a bad situation right now.
