I got an email from my friend Kim tonight asking for prayer for her mom, Donna. Donna is a mighty woman of God and has a full-time ministry. This beautiful lady lives to do the Lord's work and is constantly planting seeds of salvation everywhere she goes. Here's what Donna sent to Kim:
I've lost all nerve connection between my feet and my brain...and it has affected my walking and balance even when I'm standing this is what happens to diabetics, which I am not, but has been gradually increasing over the past few years. Now suddenly
its hit full force. I have no feeling in my feet, yet I have painful
electrical pains in them..which radiate up into my lower leg.
lots of deep leg muscle pain etc.
Also been having severe attacks of vertigo which often
goes with this. I was looking at the floor the other day
and it was moving...like I was on a carosel sitting still
but moving through space. The muscles in the feet
and the nerves, and the eye muscles all have to
work together to have balance.
It's been unerving to say the least, but I'm going to
have to learn to live with it.Nothing you can do to
restore dead neverves.
There are small muscles in between the toes that
respond to the nerves which then travel up the
spine into the brain. When this stops, you have
to learn to compesate for your balance all the time.
So, I've joined the neuropathy club...along with
a lot of seniors (altho I think I'm considered
way beyond senior) and like them I will have
to learn to compensate.
Please pray for Donna's healing.
Hugs and love,
