  • My brother's MS

    My brother has has a very slowly progressing multiple sclerosis for about 15 years now. He does his best to stay fit and active, mostly successfully, but viruses take a severe toll on him, and sometimes he has attacks where he is completely exhausted for no apparent reason. In the really rare severe attacks (the first of which alerted us to his condition in the first place), he loses all sensation down one side of his body. He also has a (I think 9-year-old) strongly autistic son who is very attached to him, and requires physical play with to calm him down (picking him up, swinging him round) when he gets anxious, so his sudden losses of energy are a serious problem.

    I just heard from my mum that his attacks have been getting more frequent and he's been off work for the last week, so any prayers for him would be greatly appreciated.

      3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

              He's had a lot of tests, an a few more are scheduled to be sure, but the doctor in charge of his case now thinks that it's not progressive MS at all, just a persistent low-level MS that occasionally flares up, with no overall degradation over time. Infections hit him very hard, and can sometimes cause a flare-up. Overall good news, if it's confirmed, a lot more manageable and a less scary prospect. His workplace is very understanding, and allows him to work from home whenever he needs to, he's ben doing better and worked two and a half days this last week.
