We are so grateful for the good report we received from the ophthalmologist last week. The doctor came in and actually gave Alexa a high five. All previous indicators of APD (damage caused by Optic Neuritis which is caused by MS) were no longer present and the vision in her left eye improved from legally blind to 20/25 Praise the Lord, Alexa will not need the plasma exchange! (6 hours a day, every other day, for 14 days)
As we move forward and meet with her neurologist again, please continue to pray with us for complete healing, favor with our insurance and that God will give us supernatural wisdom and clear direction specifically regarding treatment and medication.
Thank you so much! We are so so grateful for all your prayers, love, meals, flowers, practical help, and financial support. We have been so blessed and so encouraged and we are already seeing the miraculous power of prayer!
Alexa and family are in need of finances for unexpected medical expenses.
After having some vision issues with her left eye last week, Alexa received an MRI to look closer at her brain. After several long days of testing at The Mayo in Rochester, MN. the doctors have given Alexa a diagnosis of MS. She is currently receiving IV steroid treatments to improve her vision in her left eye.
Today (7/5/2019) was a difficult day as Anissa and Alexa were told that she would require 2 yearly infusions to deal specifically with the MS diagnosis, the infusions come with a staggering medical cost of $65,000 that is not guaranteed to be covered by insurance. (There is the possibility of applying for aid and or partial coverage but it is unclear how and what would be offered.) Anissa is already missing work and will be missing more hours in the coming weeks as they travel back and forth to Mayo.
We believe in the power of prayer and no doctors report nullifies God's Word. God has already spoken to Alexa that not only would He be holding her hand throughout this process, but that He has already fought and WON this battle for her. 2 Chron 20:17 "You will not have to fight this battle. take up your positions, stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf......Do not fear or be dismayed".
Alexa truly believes it won't be long until she is sharing the testimony of God's goodness!
- Peace for Alexa, Anissa & Family (no fear)
- Wisdom for the doctors - the perfect treatment for Alexa
- Improvement in the vision for her left eye (Steroids do their job)
- Expenses Paid (gas, hotel, parking...)
- Medical Expenses fully paid
Thank you in advance for your prayers and consideration of donations.
