The past week has been a very rough week for me. My cough has been extremely bad. We are pretty sure that because of the pollution of the city and possibly something in this apartment, I have developed severe asthma. I had it under control for a little while naturally but then stopped everything good that I was doing, and it came back hard. This time, everyone convinced me to use an inhaler and pills instead. They don't seem to be helping at all. I've had to use the inhaler 4 times today and I took the 3 pills suggested. In spite of all this, I have still wheezed all day and felt mildly suffocated. I am having a very hard time trying to control it now and am in a lot of pain from coughing. I just started going back to my natural remedies, and it seems to be calming down. I am very exhausted from lack of sleep (I wake up now at least once, last night twice, having an attack) and would cry if it wouldn't cause an attack. The nights when I do not wheeze, I am so excited about breathing that I can't sleep. I just lie there breathing and praising God because it feels so wonderful! How often I took breath for granted before all of this! Please be praying for me.


  1. I am sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I will be praying for you.

  2. Hey Jess!
    I saw your comment on my blog and got so excited!! Thank you for the compliment!I do enjoy photography quite a bit. I just read the latest post about your asthma! I will be praying for you. My daughter Alyssa has asthma, although it's very controlled. But it is so scary when you cannot breathe! How are things with you other than that? I know you have babies now- YEAH!! Thanks for stopping by my blog, it was so good to hear from you!

  3. Everything is going pretty well. Keeping busy with my two little girls, trying to learn Russian, help when I can in the ministry, etc. It is so exciting to see God working not only in our lives, but also in the lives of the people that we minister to here in Ukraine. I praise God for using me and my family.
