I have received the first positive report concerning Brenda Berry.  “Brenda is awake and has spoken.  She has answered yes and no questions appropriately!  Praise God and thank you for the prayers.  He has heard them.”

Continue to pray for this family.


From Brooke:

Just left 6:00 visitation. We feel the prayers! Mom opened her eyes when we said her name. Nurse said she had eaten ice. She is still rough, but for the first time we left visitation feeling positive. They have put her feeding tube in and about to feed her. We are praying that antibiotics have started working and we will see even bigger improvement at 10. Thanks so much for your prayers



Below is a copy of the post from Brenda’s daughter, Brooke.  I had a message from Tawesia and again she said very critical next 24 hours will tell a lot.

The next 24 hours are critical. Most patients that have this diagnosis die within three days. If she makes it through tomorrow, we have a small glimmer of hope. Pray hard, pray hard.




Wednesday AM UPdate:

Brenda Berry


I have just talked with Tawesia.  Ya’ll, things are just not good.  Brenda is not responding to medication nor anyone.  Please continue to pray.  Most of you know that she was moved to ICU at Forrest General.  The family is very pleased with the move…better acute care facility.



Tuesday PM Update:

I just talked with Tawesia and Brenda is being moved to Forrest General for more advanced care.  There is no change.  Tawesia said double the prayers.


Tuesday AM Update



I received this information from Tawesia this morning.


“Blood culture came back and showed strep in her blood which means she is septic and that probably lead to bacterial meningitis.”



  • I have just received a text from Tawesia.  Brenda continues to be a lot of pain.  She is being given a variety of meds.  Tawesia feels better since she has seen Brenda, but Brenda continues to moan…not alert but did respond when Tawesia ask if her head hurt …she shook her head yes.  Tawesia again asked for continued prayers.  I will post when I hear from Tawesia.




Brenda Brooks Berry, sister of Tawesia Meador, is very ill.  Brenda is in ICU at Wesley following a bout with the “grud.“  She just couldn’t get to feeling any better,” stated Tawesia.  She is unresponsive at this time.


Brenda is married to Billy Berry and both are former Magee High School graduates.  They presently live in the Hattiesburg area.


Tommy and Tawesia are on their way to the hospital now (3:50 PM Monday).


The family is requesting prayers…so prayer warriors, you are needed.


I will update when I hear from Tawesia.
