Many of you know their story, but for those of you who do not...
After nearly 20 years of unexplained health issues, a herniated disc on March 9th finally put Kelly, age 42, in a wheelchair. Rather than getting better, many neurological symptoms started to appear and old ones resurfaced. She even ended up in the hospital with a mini-stroke and should have gone in for addition episodes. Full body tremors, weakness, fatigue, body convulsions, numbness, slurred speech, a scary hallucination, brain tremors... the list goes on.
Joshy, turning 11yrs July 21st, has also been struggling. He hasn't been able to see clearly in 1 1/2yr even though the specialists say he has perfect vision. It seems his eye muscles are continuing pulling his eyes out of focus. He also has had EXTREME hearing sensitivity for about a year and has been dealing with migraines. In there last month or so he, too, has begu to deal with fatigue and body convulsions.
After dead ends with doctors, many medical bills ($8000 plus so far, which they sold their trailer to pay for!), and much prayer, the Chileski's felt led to drive to Idaho to see a doctor there. FINALLY! ANSWERS!
Both Kelly and Joshy have been diagnosed with Neurological Bartonella - Lyme Disease in the brain. The Lord has answered their prayers for guidance, answers and then by allowing an opening for sooner treatment with the doctor in Coeur D'alene. They are both scheduled for treatment August 2, 3 and 4th.
Their prayer now if for finances. The treatment for both of them will be around $7,000, plus hotels for the week, food, and time off work. They are estimating between $9-$10,000 will be needed. Any help is so very appreciated! Thank you for being a part of the Lord's answer to prayer for them!
