Mary Kay Bonfante : Hi, my friends. I would like to request prayer for my husband Jorge. He went to the hospital on Thursday after having some strange symptoms -- chills, hypothermia, vomiting and weakness. He has stomach ulcers and we think he was throwing up some blood, but the blood tests didn't show anemia, which the doctors said is very unusual. He did have a high white blood cell count, and the slight appearance of pneumonia on his CT scan. They're giving him antibiotics. They tested him for Covid-19, which came back negative -- it didn't surprise me, because both of us had it in March and are long past the recovery and quarantine phase (even though we still observe the same social distancing as others).
He has had strange episodes before, where extreme body temperature changes and chills precede the vomiting or regurgitation, but usually it's fever, not hypothermia. He was extremely weak this time, also.
Sorry to be so graphic. He's doing much better, but it's hard to be home without him. I hope the doctors can figure out why these episodes keep happening. It's the 4th time he's gone to the hospital for such problems, in the past 9 years, but he hasn't gone every time (it's not always severe).
I would appreciate your prayers for us very much!

    Joan E.: Lyenochka alerted me to your trials and tribulations in her current, prayerful poem. I will certainly keep you and your husband in my thoughts. I hope the doctors can figure out what has been causing these recurring episodes. Warm regards- Joan

    Mary Kay Bonfante : I accidentally Liked my own comment twice -- first, thinking I was saving it, and then hoping to unlike it. As Homer Simpson would say, "D'OH!"

    Mary Kay Bonfante : I'm very joyful to report that Jorge came home today and is busting my chops with his crazy jokes, as much as ever ;-)
    But that's how we like it! I give the glory to God for His answers to our prayers, and for all His goodness! Amen.
