Prayers needed

#1 Post by Shadowhntr » Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:07 am

Yesterday, my wifes Mother was admitted to CCU. She has degraded in health badly over the last year. Having function problems with heart, resperatory, and kidneys. She is also become anemic. We got word from the hospital this morning, she has worsened, and there are 2 choices apparantly. Try hooking her up to a ventilator, or making her as comfortable as possible. Please remember my wife and her family as they have to make very tough decisions today. Thanks for your prayers and support.

Boy, does that post bring back memories...

They told me if they use the paddles on anyone, it means being on life support and nobody gets off that! What a crock!

People do so all the time! God's in charge, not docs! :(

I will pray for your wisdom and God's healing touch to be on your wife, her Mom and the family.... His will be done!

Keep the Son in your eyes!

Thank you all for your prayers.

Well the family didn't have to make any tough decision, and for that im very thankful. The Dr's decided the medicines used along with the resperator would likely cause the heart to quit. They are presently giving her a type of shot that stimulates the heart, without which her heart would likely just quit. The medical team is prepared to continue with the shots, but fear they will only work short term. Its a matter of borrowing time. They did however say, that doesn't factor in her continued desire to fight to live, and that accounts for something, but the future looks grim. It also doesn't consider Gods will, and if He isnt ready to take her, she will live a while longer. No way we can know. God bless you all for your prayers.

prayers for others is our privilege as believers, not a burden ...

They seem to worry some (docs) that family understand what is short term fix vs. a cure...folks get sorta ouchy about loved ones.

Dad's heart valves were shot from rheumatic fever as a kid, then he ate PA German food that clogged his arteries. His heart was toast and he died of CHF...

When the time comes, nobody can say yea or nay...and that is between the patient and God

Prayers will continue until you ask them to stop. I am honored that you have asked.

Thank you all again. We can suspend prayer temporarily for my wife Deana as far as her surgery goes. Since its nothing life threatening, she has chosen to put it off with this ordeal with her Mother. Thanks.

They moved Deana's Mom upstairs into a room today! The Dr apologized to us for saying she wasn't going to make it but a night or two....obviously they were wrong. Yesterday, they discontinued the heart shots, and its beating on its own accord even still. She is sitting up in the bed, and talking to the family today. Deana said her Mom is just stubborn enough to prove them Dr's wrong! A ways to go yet, and no way to know if this is a temporary high so many get just before passing. So we will just keep taking one day at a time.
