Hi everyone, I just got off the phone with Renea- actually I've not been much OFF the phone with her today. She gave me permission to share this with you- she said she could really use your prayers and she felt her 'friends' should know. Anyway, Renea's mom as most of you know, has MS. What she hasn't said much about is the terrible pain her mom is frequently in. Last night her mom got up in the middle of the night and accidently overdosed on pain / sleeping pills. The doctors said had they found her an hour later she probably wouldn't have made it. Luckily Renea and her dad were there and her brother and they rushed her to the er. At the moment she is in critical care unit (not quite as serious as ICU but still dangerous) Her blood pressure is dangerously high (stroke danger) and she is going through detox- much as Jake had to go through on DQ from alcohol except in her mom's case it's the pain meds. Renea and her dad will be staying at the hospital tonight and it's still iffy- they don't know what her mom will be like after all this and there is still the fear something could still go wrong. As you can imagine Renea is really scared and she really needs our prayers holding her and her family up tonight.

The irony is, Renea is scheduled to come to my house on Thursday- the plan is for her to try to find work here and stay with me for a while until she gets on her feet. Now that's up in the air although given what there is available to her in Alabama, she really has no choice. Her family is there and they still want her to come but of course she is really torn right now.

Anyway I felt you would want to know.

Oh, I will be praying for her, it's a holiday tomorrow so I'm going to church tomorrow and Sunday and she will be on my prayers and in the perfect place.

About overdose, it's so dangerous. It happens to me sometimes that I don't remember if I've taken my pills for my eyesight, they are very hard, it's also used for heart attacks and more than once I've taken the double dose. Probably I should organise myself better.

Oh, great Renea is taking chances where you live, it's great to have somebody to rely on and to give you confidence when you are searching for a new job. And you sure will have a great time!

How scary. I can't even begin to imagine what Renea and her family are going thru. Renea, her mom, and her family will be in my prayers.

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry!

Mary Ann, thank you so much for sharing Renea's info. I hope her mom feels better soon. I had no idea she suffers from MS, but I can imagine the pain she's going through and I'm terribly sorry for the accident. I hope she'll be home with her family soon.

Renea, hang in there. We all are thinking of you and your family.

((((Hugs))))

A brief update, Renea said her mom has passed her first 'milestone' she is now sleeping peacefully and her blood pressure has gone down dramatically from how high it was. If things continue to improve as they hope, she will be out of the woods soon. The next milestone will be what she will be like when she wakes up. Hopefully, she will not have suffered any permanent damage though she will likely have to go to a rehab for a while to recover from the shock to her system. As for Renea, she's finally gone home for a few hours to sleep and still hopes to come here next week if all goes well with her mom. She is very grateful for your prayers and support- she says just knowing you are out there thinking of her has helped tremendously.

Thanks for the update, Mary Ann! It's a big relief to hear Renea's mom is doing better. I hope there's no (or not too much) major damage done to her when she wakes up.

I'll still keep Renea and her mom in my thoughts and hope for speedy recovery.

It's wonderful news that her mom has passed her first milestone. I pray she will continue to make progress, and hasn't suffered any permanent damage. I'm glad Renea was able to go home to get some sleep.

Renea, her mom, and the rest of her family will continue to be in my prayers.

OMG, I just come in (I'm ill) and I read this so bad news.
What a dramatic accident.

Thanks Mary Ann to let us know and to post the update too.
All my prayers and thoughts are going to our dear Renea, her mom and family.
I hope the recovery will come soon and with no colateral damages on the MS.

Happy to read that Renea will come with you, Mary Ann. It's so helpful to be with a friend in bad times.

All my lv and hugs to Renea.

Please keep us posted.

Oh, my. I'm so sorry to hear about Renea's mother. I've just now read this thread--my heart hasn't been here since we had to put our sweet little Freddie to sleep a couple of weeks ago. I will certainly be praying that her mom will recover soon, without any residual affects.

Could this be the reason that God had for Renea to be at home at this time? From personal experience, I know how difficult it is to be away from home when something like this happens. It's much more comforting to be right there, with loved ones, when unfortunate circumstances occur, than to be hundreds of miles away. Phone calls and emails are much less assuring than being there in person.
