My mom has a nerve condition in her face called trigeminal neuralgia. It's basically really severe pain in her face that is far worse than childbirth or breaking a bone or any other kind of pain. It used to be known as the suicide disease before treatments were developed. Hers used to be triggered easily by hot and cold stuff or even just chewing weird. It struck months ago and she has had a treatment for it recently and while that's helped, it's not been the fix she hoped it would be. She still gets breakthrough attacks, but less frequently. Her dr said that's common, but enough people with this condition had a total removal of symptoms after this treatment that she hoped shed be one of the lucky ones.

It's so bad that she's even afraid of making the drive to come see the birth of our son because one of her triggers is now driving through changes in altitude as she discovered a month ago making a trip to her old house to finish moving. She hasn't been anywhere but the city she lives in since that last attack. She's not one to shy away from pain, so when she starts acting afraid of going anywhere, you know its bad. She kind of joked about it last time I talked with her about it, saying "well at least if I get another attack while you're giving birth, I'll already be in a hospital".

On top of that, they're almost always sick with something. Pray my mom's condition goes away and my family is otherwise well enough to come up and see their grandson born. I know it would break their hearts to miss that. We are gonna go see them when he's a few weeks old, but it's special being around a baby just hours old ya know.

Omg how terrible!!! I've never heard of anything like that. You just never know what people are going through. . Praying for her now...
~ Ginger

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16

Update on her- she hasn't had an attack in weeks now. She was even able to ride along with my dad up the hill to their old house to continue sorting stuff out and meet with their realtor and she felt fine! No attacks! She was very nervous, but she was fine. She's hopeful it stays away.
