Help Lindsay Hoekstra lick Lyme

Lindsay has been experiencing sickness and random symptoms for quite some time now.  These symptoms include everything from extreme fatigue, insomnia, loss of her voice, all the way to the extent of her body going completely limp and unable to function.  After many doctors appointments, hospitalization and ER visits, and ongoing frustration, Lindsay  was diagnosed with Lyme disease this past week.  This is a blessing to have an answer finally, although the treatment is going to be intense. Due to her physical issues, she has been unable to take on jobs for her interior design business and now has mounting medical bills, some of which have not even come through yet.  Any donations will be used to pay for her care and current bills to help alleviate the financial burden so that she can heal fully without the worry of bills being paid.  Thank you for your help in getting our friend back so that she is better than she was before.  She was not thrilled about this page being set up and I am excited to see how she and Jeremy will be blessed through this.  Thank you for your prayers and donations.

Hello friends. It’s been awhile and I wanted to post an update on Lindsay. I am also going to increase the Go Fund Me goal as with all of her medical difficulties and pursuing answers, she has incurred many more bills. I received the update below from Lindsay this week and was asked to share it.

“Most days I am barely able to move or talk or be out of bed so it’s been kind of tough keeping people up-to-date. I more or less have something wrong with my central nervous system. They think they found part of it which is called Vagoglossopharyngeal neuralgia, but it doesn’t explain why the rest of my body is doing that weird crap that it’s doing. I have a widespread twitching and muscle seizing, infection type symptoms, my digestion is not working properly so I have had a lot of weight loss, sometimes the muscle stuff constricts my chest and my throat making it hard to breathe and jacks with my heart, I can’t be up right most of the time because I have these weird passing out type episodes and I feel dizzy and nauseated most of the time. Some days I’m so weak I can’t hold things with my hands and my shoulders are so weak and painful all the time that I have trouble lifting anything including a glass to drink or a fork to eat. They have found a couple other things that they haven’t looked into yet like fluid in my skull and an intracranial cyst between my carotid artery‘s behind my nasal passage. They are also going to check into a cerebral spinal fluid leak. They are thinking that this started at least 2 to 3 years ago with all horrendous infection and it left a lot of bad stuff and it’s wake and still may be trapped somewhere in my head. I finally have a Doctor Who is determined to get to the bottom of it, which is good because we’ve literally gone through dozens and most of them have thought that it’s been in my head and I just need psychiatric help so we finally went to a psychiatrist on our own and he was like this is definitely not in your head and my current doctor said this is definitely not in your head so it’s just hard to pin down And nobody has really wanted to do that. They currently have me on antibotic‘s and an anti-seizure medication and pain medication. The pain medication is because the muscle spasms are causing my bones to twist out of place and not be where they should be which is really painful. That’s about it right now. That’s all we know. There are three doctors in on it currently: one from Princeton one from U of M and my primary doctor here in town and they’re all still pretty puzzled “

Just wanted to share an update regarding Lindsay’s health. I wish it were a good update, but unfortunately she has continued to decline and is headed to the Mayo Clinic this week. Please keep Jeremy and Lindsay in your prayers as they travel and seek these much needed medical answers. This journey has been long, painful and frustrating to say the least. Please continue to pass this on to those who may be able to help financially and prayerfully. Blessings
