My mother is busy as usual. She takes care of the household and everybody in the home. In addition to this, she is assigned to bring and fetch my niece and nephew to and from school. Since my younger sister is on vascular disease therapy/treatment, my mother will be in-charge of this task.
With regards to my sisters treatment, she is taking her medication and she is starting to feel better. That is good.
The status of my sisters vascular illness
is now monitored by us and the doctors. She was prescribed to take a medication for a week. The prescribed medicine is taking effect. The redness of her feet is slowly fading. But still, she has difficulty in walking because of the pain. Hopefully the pain will subside and her feet will totally heal.
I am very thankful to the people who were around when my family needs the urgent help. My heart will be forever grateful to them. God has a way of answering prayers of those who are in need.
Now here is another health concern that is bothering the family right now. After my niece’s diagnosis of UTI and is currently on medication, my sister is having this pain suddenly. Her feet are swelling and they are red. She can barely walk because it is hurting.When I called to ask what’s the doctor’s findings, my sister said it is a rare disorder. The doctor told her that she has Vasculitis-inflammation in and damage of the walls of arteries and veins. My God! How did my sister get this? I surfed the Internet and looked what is the real cause of Vasculitis. There is no known cause of Vasculitis. An excerpt from an article states that, “Each form of vasculitis has its own characteristic pattern of symptoms, much of which depends on what particular organs are affected.” I do not understand. Does it mean my sister has a weak immune system?
I am very worried. I could not sleep well because I think of her. Prayers are a big help now. I hope she will feel better soon. I love my sister and I am here to help her win and overcome this challenge.
