Hello, my dearest and beloved brothers and sisters in Christ! “Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” ~Ephesians 1:2-4

Please forgive RDK’s lack of communication lately. My daughter María and I are spending much time seeing doctors and enduring tests at the University of Washington Medical Center— 176-mile round trip from Shelton 3 to 5 times per month since April. The trips are very hard on me, putting me down for a few days each time. Those miles do not include María’s 320+ miles r/t from Portland-Shelton-Portland: she is so tired.

 First, I attempt here to express an inexpressible gratitude to and appreciation for all of my brethren and my daughter’s mega efforts on my behalf. As a professional caregiver, she goes way beyond the call of duty— miles beyond, both figuratively and literally— for all her clients, including her mother. She is the perfect daughter much adored and loved, a precious blessing from my Father God. I pray she knows this: I do tell her.

 If some of you are not on FaceBook, you might want to join; I do put links there to prior Bible poems, visions and lessons posted in this last church age: it is much easier on me because I cannot sit long enough to prepare new or updated lessons. When you join FaceBook, then look for Bonita M Quesinberry, add me as a F/B friend and I will add you to my list of friends! If you look at my FaceBook Wall, you will find the links already up; after joining me, new links will appear on your F/B home page.

Dr. George Kraft, chief physician of UW’s Multiple Sclerosis (MS) research center (est. 1888) and MS Clinic, has conducted numerous tests and MRIs as well as called in a number of specialists— i.e. spine, neurology, rheumatology, dental, etc— and finally, after 2.5 years, I got a primary care doctor last week. Dental work is almost complet— perhaps February 2011— with the exception of oral surgery to remove a very large cyst holding infection in the left side of the roof of my mouth: to be scheduled soon. God is so awesome: He has protected my brain! His miracles in my life never cease.

The powerful MRI Dr. Kraft did, as well as escalating symptoms of MS, confirmed— again! —Bonnie has relapsing/remitting MS but now in rapid progression: no doctor can delete the diagnosis as Dr. Teuseco had, my former primary care doctor. Symptoms also reveal Lupus; albeit, blood tests do not, which is not uncommon as it is very illusive but causes one’s immune system to attack vital organs/connective tissue: very painful.

Also, a large tumor— or cyst, not sure which at this time— was found sitting on the T-6 (thoracic spine) nerve root, which is causing considerable pain and MS spasms in my upper chest and back: feels like being squeezed to death and difficult to breathe. Another MRI will be done to see if it is growing, then they will determine what to do about it. All of the cervical discs are bulging due to the cervical spine being curved in the wrong direction; which has resulted in me now being 1.5-inches shorter: now 5-ft 3.5-in. LOL!

My new primary doctor reinstated the few medications needed, especially for blood pressure; the latter of which has helped immeasurably. It was thought it would be safe for me to take once-daily injections of Copaxone®, a relatively natural MS treatment that has shown to prevent more brain lesions and, in some cases, even deleted existing lesions. It does not, however, reverse existing nerve damage. Alas, the sixth and seventh injections resulted in violent seizures, the first of which lasted 1-hour and the second at 1.5-hours. This likely happened because I have seizures anyway but nothing as bad as these two; so bad it could have caused another brain aneurysm: praise the Lord, He did not allow it. Needless to say, I no longer take Copaxone®; but, many patients have good results.

Dr. Kraft also tried me on Naproxin® to treat MS inflammatory pain. The third dose resulted in a severe MS episode that lasted 8-weeks of excruciating MS spasms/pain. So, it was back to prescription Ibuprophen®. I do not know why he wanted to make the change in the first place. Alas, I am still recovering from both drugs and begged off trying any new meds. Hopefully, these new doctors now understand that my body does not tolerate, for the most part, man’s pharmaceuticals: God’s herbs are most effective!

This year has been spent getting on HUD and public housing waiting lists in an effort to leave Fir Tree Park Apts, better known as “A Vipers’ Nest.” The torment and harassment against me continues to escalate and includes management, to the point I cannot even go outside: the last time I did, I was falsely accused of confronting the neighbor who assaulted me, arguing with her and calling her names— never happened.

Last week, María and I both were confronted by two angry neighbors— the two worst— when we returned from a medical appointment: anger based on management telling them I had filed ID theft charges on them: after discovering they had gone through some of my specific garbage. I had not; rather, I contacted my bank and credit reporting agencies to have each ‘Fraud Alert’ flagged for the ‘possibility’ of ID theft occurring: this required a police report but no charges, unless or until ID theft occurs. Management knew this fact; thus, it is obvious she is part of the problem as well as three specific tenants.

On Sept. 16th, someone hit the back of the building at my unit (bedroom) so hard it shook me on my living room sofa. Rachael above me ran to her friends outside, they all went to management saying I pounded on my bedroom ceiling so hard they could hear it fifty feet away at the front of the building; and, once again, management served me with a Notice of Violation that included threat of eviction. This, during 8-weeks of suffering a severe MS episode: I could do nothing, not even lift my 2-lb. Ferret. If I pounded the ceiling so hard, there would have been a huge, gapping hole in it!

As a result of numerous false complaints followed by management’s repeat Notices of Violation, I have engaged my attorney in case they attempt to wrongfully evict; which would result in never again being able to rent in subsidized housing. That would put me on the streets. Sadly, this all began when management discriminated against my disability 3.5-yrs ago and, after moving in, they shifted to retaliation/harassment. After moving Rachael in above me, they began/continue to encourage her drunken torment of me.

The above are just a few events among an average of 1 to 2 or more per month. We know the above is part of Satan’s persecution of Christ’s sheep; but, it still is difficult to endure, though I can only with prayer. So, please add your prayers that our Lord gets me out of here as soon as possible: it feels like the stress is killing me and certainly is responsible for MS going into rapid progression with added neurological events that include total blackouts. Our Lord’s grace is sufficient for me, just as it was for Paul.

I ask that you pray for María: her body has been retaining massive fluids due to steroid treatments for asthma. We are looking for non-steroid remedies and have started a few appropriate herbs. She also has an overflowing plate: regular Oregon caregiver clients, caregiver to me, raising her 3-yo granddaughter, a home and husband. She never has a moment for self. Further, please add sister Tammy in Florida to your prayers: much has happened there causing temporary unemployment to only this week getting a new job: put added financial burdens on her. Tammy also needs to move into her own place.

Thank you so much, my precious brothers and sisters, for your prayers and bearing with me during this last of our trials and tribulations. There truly are no new Bible lessons to post that are not already at our websites and, as you see on the news, the elements are continuing to worsen: as are all signs of Christ about to arrive in the clouds for our ascension. Take advantage of all we have posted at Remnant Doctrine Keepers as well as Seventh Seal Library and Biblical poetry at All Poetry

God’s Word, all of it, strengthens and encourages us during this painful age: take advantage of it being gathered together in one place— “In these end days the wicked will lose all they have but God’s people will not go without.” It will not be long now! “Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with all of you that in sincerity love our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~Ephesians 6:23-24

Much love and prayers in Christ,
Sister BonnieQ
