Question I have... How long till you noticed dramatic weight loss with Medifast? Thanks for any answer. My other question... Hey all! I posted this as a journal update but realized it wasnt visible to everyone so I decided to post it here and.

Hope.

To get yall support with prayers..

This is just an excerpt as to what has been going on in my life. Because of it, I find myself not eating like I should or sometimes eating more than what I should and then getting sick. It's my dad. I am an only child. I have no idea where my mom is. She disappeared several years ago and don't know where she is.

So, I am fighting depression about all of this as we speak. Just having a rough time all around..

My dad's name is Glynn..

Thanks.

This past month has been a horrible one. have been dealing with my dad being very sick. well, let me just tell you exactly what happened so you can see just how good GOD is. On the 27th of november I got a call from my uncle telling me that my dad was in the hospital and that it didnt look good at all. apparently he had passed out while he was getting ready to go out and pay bills. well to make a long story short(er) my dad had a heart attack and a stroke at the same time.



Oxygen.

To his brain for almost 30 minutes. they told me he also did not have a pulse or heart rate and was "down" for over an hour. BUT GOD was not done with him. The docs kept telling me that he was going to have brain damage and would never be the same again. well, I respect what the docs say but I do not let my.

Hope.

Lay totally with them. I said no sir.. I serve a mighty GOD and I KNOW what HE can do and WILL do..

They put my dad "on ice" literally, to help slow down or halt any and all damage that was caused by the.

Oxygen.

Deprivation. This scared the hell out of me. I thought he was dead. His temp was down to 33.7 degrees. for over 24 hours. It's really something to hear that they had to start to "rewarm" him and see what the damage was..

I took my rent money and I got in my car and drove from Stockton, Ca. (near Sacramento) to New Orleans, la. I dont even recall most of the trip. I only stopped long enough to use the bathroom and eat and get.

Coffee.

I called him constantly *the nurses* and told them to tell him I am on my way and I want to see him sitting up watching tv when I got there. Keep in mind he was not conscious when I was leaving these messages..

When I got into New Orleans I went straight to the hospital. When I walked into the CCU I was scared. Scared to see him, scared to see what I would find. All I saw was machines and a single bed. Then I walked further in and saw it was my dad... thin gray hair, strong and healthy looking with a tube down this throat (the vent).

He grabbed my hand and squeezed it so hard my nail beds turned blue. :-) I didnt mind. I was just happy to see my dad..

Hes off the vent!! However, he's having a few issues with his CO2 levels. This causes him not to remember who anyone is. I called him the other day and said, "Hey old man... how are u, daddy???? He said you know baby, I think you have the wrong number. I dont have any children. All my life I wanted to have a daughter but I guess GOD didnt see me fit to have one, and if I did have one I would want her to be just like you.." That hurt me like nothing else.

Its just temporary..

So I would like to ask anyone who reads this to please pray!!!! It's a true miracle that he's alive so fixing his CO2 levels is nothing for GOD...I believe GOD will restore him back to his old self....

*oh, and once he's released from the rehab hospital I am bringing him to cali to be with me* :-)..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

Thank you guys sooo soooo very much!! called the hospital last night and the nurse there was NOT nice. She told me I was being selfish and to let him go... that there is such a thing as a SWEET RELEASE..... I told her Oh, no I am not being selfish at all.. I want the best for my dad. It is not up to me to keep him life or to take it.

But me being a daughter that loves him prays for him to get better.... and that is called LOVE and she should try it... Then I called the charge nurse and told her I didnt want her caring for my dad any more!.

5:30am today, the docs called and said, "Renata, I hate to wake you but I just wanted to tell you that your dad has made a significant improvement!!! We are all very impressed and amazed". I said, well thats the kind of GOD we serve!!!!!.

So keep praying people PLEASE....

@ Brett, thank you sooo very much!!! you are a sweetie..

I really do not know what to say other than my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am a firm believer that God doesn't gives us more than we can handle (at times I just wish he did not trust us so much)..

You are definitely a warrior. Someone who can endure that much pain and still holds their head up high is definitely blessed by God. He is by your side and he will not.

Leave.

You astray..

You and your family are in my prayers and I wish you a healthy, successful, and a Merry Christmas. God Bless...
