It Better Not Steal Another Life!

Monday, January 30, 2012

I have a daughter, The Bipolar Princess, that's sick. She's really, really sick, life threatening sick.

Not only is she fighting worsening symptoms of bipolar, she got another MRSA infection. This one's not like the last ones. This one is consuming her body. Her immune system is gone from fighting the infection. Today she got the news from her doctor that she will probably need surgery to rid her body of the invasive infection. She sees the surgeon tomorrow.

The MRSA began on her thigh and now the doctors fear it's reached the bone. She's been on IV antibiotics as well as oral ones. Nothing's helping. It seems surgery is inevitable and in her weakened condition, both mentally and physically, it's very, very dangerous.

She called me in hysterics today after she got the news. There was nothing I could say, nothing I could do, but listen to her sobs. All I could do was listen and cry with the girl that will have another huge scar added to her collection of scars from dozens of surgeries.

I cried with the girl that's afraid, that's sick of being sick, that's trying to fight the curve balls thrown her way at each and every turn in the road. It's no wonder she feels like giving up.

Bipolar we can deal with. The possibility of losing her to a virulent staph infection scares the holy hell out of me. Losing my cousin to a staph infection several years ago only heightens my fear. This is serious folks, and this mama is scared.

OH sweetie praying for you and her. Jehovah Rophe we come boldly to the throne as the word tells us we can as your children. Lord we lift up Diva's daughter and the doctors that are treating her. Lord we cover her from head to toe with the holy blood of Jesus, who shed it that she was healed. Father I pray angels to surround them with healing and strength, I pray wisdom into the doctors, I pray healing to flow through her body like the blood of Christ from the top of her head to the soles of her feet. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

One thing after another. I am so sorry and I sincerely will be praying for you and your girl. Being the helpless mama is so hard, but you have more strength than you know, it is in there and because it needs to, it will rise up.

Unknown January 30, 2012 at 11:34 PM  

I'm so sorry! You'll both be in my prayers! By the way, you girls look beautiful in the pictures!

Kelly January 31, 2012 at 1:13 AM  

I'm so sorry :( I'll keep praying for your family.

You and your daughter are in my thoughts.

I am sending good wishes hoping the news gets better.

Nolie January 31, 2012 at 4:01 AM  

Huge hugs to all of you. You know my number if you need to chat. I am here for you.

Carol-Anne January 31, 2012 at 4:14 AM  

Ok, it might sound trite after everyone else has said it, but I'm praying for you guys RIGHT NOW. May God protect her and give you all the strength to cope with this horror.

Beautiful girls!!

Poor Karli. She's been through so, very much already.

I'm thinking about you both. Hang in there. Please let me know if there's anything I can do.

Love you! xo

This has seriously moved me, to the point I'm not really sure what even to say. I can seriously empathise about the constant curveballs but this is even more serious than that and life threatening too. You guys will be in my thoughts and I seriously, seriously hope that your daughter will be able to fight this staph infection with all she has. It's not going be easy but with a bit of faith and hope she can and will defeat this, best of wishes.

Just Two Chicks January 31, 2012 at 5:39 AM  

This is where you "KNOW" you will not lose her... it's not even a possibility in your head!! Or hers! Make it happen... will it. She's a beautiful girl, and I hate this for you both... tell her... there are no options... she WILL get through this... period.

Allyson & Jere January 31, 2012 at 6:26 AM  

Oh honey...I am SO sorry. That IS terrifying and seems totally unfair. Much love and many prayers being sent yours AND Karlis way. May God direct her surgeouns and be with all of you. Please keep us posted on her progress and recovery.

Rob-bear January 31, 2012 at 6:36 AM  

OH,NO! This is utterly horrid! I am so sorry to hear this. It is much worse than I had expected.

First bipolar, now this. ODTAA. (One da**ed thing after another.)

Here's hoping for some very high-level medical skills.

Blessings and Bear hugs for both of you.

Shit, shit, shit.
We're with you and your daughter. May the surgeon's hand be skilled and his mind focused.

The Bipolar Diva January 31, 2012 at 3:54 PM  

Thanks everyone. She's at the doctor's office now getting more tests done. since her immune system is shot they don't want her in the hospital until need be. She's crying, I'm crying. It's been a long few days.

Impulsive Addict January 31, 2012 at 5:16 PM  

Oh no honey! I'm still praying. I am hoping that you get some good news.

She is beautiful and so are you. I am so sorry that you're having to go through all this. Keep us updated.

Carries Rambles January 31, 2012 at 5:21 PM  

I'm sorry, I'm behind and just saw this now. I'm so so sorry that life just keeps kicking her.

Honestly, I am not a bible thumping religious person, but I will say a prayer for her!

Stay strong Mama!

The Bipolar Diva February 1, 2012 at 10:20 PM  

you all are incredible. thank you. my baby's lying in bed with her leg sliced open with a 4" long and 3" deep incision and can't take anything for pain. I just can't imagine what she's going through. It makes me sick, but your kind words, prayers and thoughts make everything so much better for her, and for me too. thank you, thank you so much.


Nancy February 2, 2012 at 7:16 AM  

Dropping by via Rob-bear's blog. Sending love and light to your little girl. Praying for the very best outcome to this serious illness.

Storyteller February 2, 2012 at 11:43 AM  

Just caught up with your and Karli's postings. Shared with her the text I sent you. I've had mrsa issues and it's NOT fun and VERY painful! But our God is an awesome God and He will bring her through this as with everything else she's going/gone through. You are one strong family and I <3 you all!

Just A Normal Mom February 3, 2012 at 7:26 AM

Unknown February 6, 2012 at 9:55 AM  

My Goodness Teri, I feel horrible! Is Carli ever going to get a break? If it can happen it seems to find its path to you girl. My thoughts, prayers, and positive thoughts are heading your direction. For you, her and the rest of the family. Horrible! Just Horrible!

Helene February 7, 2012 at 10:26 AM  

I read about your daughter on Angel's blog and wanted to come over and let you know she will be in my prayers for healing.
