My situation started near the end of Dec.2014. I developed a high fever that lasted four days. I was feeling well enough to go to our family Christmas dinner on Jan.1,2015. Before the end of that day I broke out in a rash (hives) which covered my whole body by the next day. I went to the doctor in Killarney and he prescribes:Prednisone,Zantac and Benadryl. Before I finished the medication a tremor began in my head and right arm, I was very weak and tired.
At the beginning of February I had a short reprieve as my tremors suddenly stopped.Two days later my sister Kay took ill and ended up in Winnipeg St. Boniface hospital.She was diagnosed with a heart problem,which would require a valve replacement at a later date.Within a week Ideveloped more hives and more medication and the tremors started again.By the middle of March my doctor in Killarney referred me to a neurologist in Brandon (which I didn't see until August)
In the meantime my tremors became more violent where my leg or arm would go into a type of a spasm.Some part of my body was always in motion.There were severaltimes I would be laying down and my body would shake.Iwould be suspended by my feet and head my rigid body would be literally raised and shaking.This was very frightening.
It was hard for me to go out in public as I would try and controlmy tremors which only made them worse. I would spend most of my time in bed each day because I was so tried from my body shaking. My husband did most of the cooking and Kay helped out with the house work. Whenever I went out to anything the next day Ispent in bed,too tired to move.
I was prayed for by my church family,by my family many times,also at family camp and our small group. I was blessed at these times but not healed.
In the mean time I had two cataract operations and saw the neurologist in Brandon on August 20,2015 only to have him tellme Ineeded to see a different specialist in Winnipeg at the Deer Lodge Hospital. I saw the him in Winnipeg on November 16th ,2015. He was the first one to diagnosed me and called it a FunctionalTremor,but he wanted to discuss it with another doctor which I was to see February 4th 2016.
Our first Grandson was getting married in St.Thomas,Ontario on January 2nd 2016. We really wanted to go and did go with the blessing of my doctor and some relaxing medication.
We knew about the new church start in Wawanesa and decided to attend January 10th, 2016. Pastor Cal Young spoke that morning on Faith which made me feel a little uneasy. Where was my Faith? WHY wasn't I healed? They had communion that morning. As the emblems were being served I had a hard time picking up the juice glass as my hand was trembling as usual. While waiting on the rest to be served Ispilled some juice. Looking at my clothes to see where I had spilled it, I realized it was only on my hands. Immediately I realized that the juice is a type of Jesus blood,shed for my salvation and healing. I couldn't wait for Pastor Cal to call any one forward for prayer.He prayed for me holding my hands in his and we both were shaking. I returned to my chair upset as I was still shaking. As I sat down I said to myself 'HAND in Jesus Name stop it.Immediately my body stopped shaking.At first Iwas amazed but then realized what had happenedI Praise God I am free from a disease that had controlled me for a whole year. God does answer pray in his own time and we are blessed. Praise God
