Need some prayers

For almost 3 weeks now, my husband has been dealing with some serious medical issues. He has spent almost 3 weeks now in bed with a LONG LIST of symptoms that seems to keep growing on an almost daily basis. He’s lost 25 pounds (no appetite in 3 weeks), has had fevers, vomiting, severe nose bleeds, unable to swallow (the back of his throat burned for days), bumps on the roof of his mouth, dizzy spells, dehydration, unable to straighten his arms, unable to walk (his heels hurt so bad), severe migraines, vomiting…and the list goes on.

He is waiting to get a CAT scan and an MRI (hopefully within the next 24-48 hours). He got bloodwork, etc. done yesterday and it turns out that he is anemic. Tomorrow I’m taking him to the hospital to get results from an ultrasound…

We are emotionally drained and we could really use some prayers (and some answers) right about now.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear this. I have no answers (about anything really) but I can certainly send prayers. Hang in there.

  2. Hi,
    Sorry for my english, but I need your husband complete name for the prayers. If it`s no problem for you...
    Love your blog,
    Kisses from Brazil

  3. Thanks Collette and Elisa.

    Elisa, his full name is Pablo Coffey. Sending kisses back from Canada!

  4. Hi Julia! I´m so sorry to hear this. I´m from Barcelona( Spain) I follow your blog because you have a lot to offer. You have a great family, you´re a very good mother and wife. I´m praying a lot for Pablo. Don´t worry, everything is gonna be allright.Thank You for sharing and best wishes for Pablo , You and your beautiful kids.

  5. Wow--that's quite a list of ickiness. Of course I'm all prayers and positive vibes and hugs and good thoughts and crossed fingers (etc.) for you that this will prove (and soon!) to be something simple to treat.

  6. Hi Julia :)

    Will be sending prayers from New Zealand for you and you family..especially Pablo.
    Pray that they will find out how to treat all the symptoms, and that this will happen fast.

    You have such a wonderful family! - It's all going to be alright :)



  7. His in my list now...
    God bless you all!!

  8. Have him tested for Lyme Disease from a Lyme literate doctor!!!
    My husband was severely ill for over 2 years with us bouncing from doctor to doctor without answers before we saw someone who was Lyme literate and diagnosed him on the spot. It is very hard to diagnose, but symptoms can include all of those you mentioned.
    This is the website of my husband's doc (http://www.lymeproject.com/), but do some research and find someone in your area who knows how to diagnose and treat!
    Good Luck!

  9. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!!! It really means alot to us.

    Sarah, I'll look into Lyme disease (going to look at that site now) and mention it when we go to the hospital tomorrow. A big thank you!

    Pablo just started being treated by my doctor who is a phenomenal AND THOROUGH doctor and I know she'll get to the bottom of all this.

  10. I am so sorry to read this, Julia. Sending positive thoughts and healing vibes. XOXO.

  11. hi julia, sorry to hear that your hubby is so unwell. sending him healing thoughts... and lots of love to you all. i hope you get some answers soon and that pablo heals quickly.

    could it be an allergy to something??.. they can develop at any time and the reactions can be quite aggressive! ..just a thought! xxxx

  12. Thanks Leigh and GW! GW - I'll definitely keep the allergy idea in mind.

  13. Many blessings and prayers your way! I hope answers will come soon.

    Thank you for a wonderful blog.

  14. My, what a wonderful name you have Julia! LOL! Thanks for the blessings and prayers. Boy do I ever need a nap right about now...

  15. He is absolutely in my prayers!
