We just got back from the hospital. Miss Anne is feeling a little bit better. There is not a clear diagnosis yet, the doctors are running some blood tests. Also she had an ultrasound, everything seems to be normal, except for her spleen which is twice as big as it should be. She also got some plasma.

She came back from the States exhausted and that didn’t seem to go away, but worsened. One day she wasn’t able to walk, so Adolf and Reka took her in their house for a couple of days, and then we all decided that she needed to see a doctor and have some tests done.

She seems to have a severe anemia. She said to tell you that the hematologist that Adolf recommended is one of the best in Romania. She will have to stay in the hospital at least until Friday, so we will see. Blessings to you all.”

    The enlarged spleen may indicate mononucleosis virus, commonly known in the medical field as Epstein Barr Virus [EBV]. EBV comes on due to stress, overwork, physical body changes, and it causes extreme fatigue with low immunity to other sicknesses like colds and flu viruses. Anyone at any age can contract this common EBV virus when one’s body is totally run-down & exhausted. Sometimes doctors are not looking for EBV in older patients.

    Please have doctors check Anne for the EBV virus. If at first blood test results come up negative, then run blood tests & check again with another blood test in 1-2 months since the EBV virus does not always show up on medical tests the first time the test is done … and not until after the 12th week of symptoms … which is usually about 3 months after the extreme fatigue, weakness, & body pains begin. EBV can be determined after the 12th week of having the virus [3 months after contracting the virus].

    I love you Anne. Prayers are going up for you.
    Love, Sherrie

    Thank you, Stefan, for this update on our dear sister Anne. May the good Lord give each of you – especially Anne – an overflowing measuring of grace and peace during this difficult time. . . Hoping the prognosis is hopeful.
