Skip to comments.My daughter is gravely ill, needs prayers! [Updates at #181, #223]
Posted on 01/26/2012 8:20:39 PM PST by 60Gunner
I have a 7-year-old adopted daughter who is medically fragile with a host of health problems. She developed massive bleeding in her gastrointestinal tract earlier today. She's undergone multiple transfusions so far and is in surgery right now to find the source of the bleeding.
Jasmine has always been a fighter. And I know that no matter what the outcome is, she has always been safe and secure in the hands of God.
Would you all just lift our little Jasmine up in your prayers tonight? I simply ask you to pray that God's perfect will be done- nothing more, nothing less. Thank you all for your prayerful support of this amazing little girl.
I will let you know the outcome as soon as possible.
God's blessing and grace be with you tonight in Jesus' matchless Name.

When you pray to God in Jesus' name, all the armies of hell cringe in fear. They may rage and threaten, but they cannot overpower you. For God is with you! Who then can stand against a child of God who prays?
Prayers indeed for Jasmine. May God’s will be done for her and your family.

Jasmine is in my prayers....
Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car cest à Toi quappartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

I’m late but still praying.
A prayer for your daughter, Jasmine, 60Gunner. Thanks for the ping, Salvation.
As of noon today: The doctor informed us that the 'scopes they performed in surgery showed some esophageal varices, but that was not where the bleed was. There was a 15cm length of bowel they could not see by scope or by CT scan, so they are performing scan today where they inject a microscopic "marker" in her blood and watch to see where it goes. When it exits an artery into the lumen of her intestine, that will be the source of her bleed. They can then work on closing the bleed.
Jasmine is still losing blood, but at a much slower rate. Her hematocrit dropped 1.6 percent in 4 hours, from 26.9 to 25.3. She will probably be getting another couple of units of "the house red" today.
That's all we know for now. My wife and I appreciate your prayers and support. I'll continue to keep you posted. Thanks and God bless you. Gunner
Thanks for the update. Prayers continue.
Others, please see #167...
Still praying. So glad to hear that at least the doctors have some ideas and that Jasmine is fighting.
Thanks for the update. Still praying here. I don’t always post a response on thread, but I do always pray.
Prayers sent for Jasmine.
Jasmine's condition has improved. Her hematocrit is up to 31% from 26.9% yesterday. There are no signs of continued bleeding at this time. While we are left scratching our heads as to precisely where she is bleeding from, we are counting our blessings nonetheless.
The docs are talking about discharging her from ICU to the medical unit. She could sure use the rest!
There is no telling yet how much longer it will take for her to completely recover from this baffling setback. While Jasmine is a fighter, her pre-existing medical conditions strip her of any reserves. When she goes down, she goes down like a rhino off the high dive. Every once in a while, she manages to scare the everlovin' heck out of us.
Your prayers are appreciated far beyond what I could ever express to you. Thanks for gathering around my family and my daughter. She is guarded, but slowly improving.
With warmest and sincerest gratitude, Gunner and family
So Jasmine’s bleeding stopped, but the doctors never found out what happened. Sounds like either God intervened, or the natural body processes repaired itself. In my mind, either one is a miracle of God.
Ping to good news at #181...
Wow.... Such great news Gunner!!!
The prayers continue!!!
Thanks, and yes good news indeed. Our Father in Heaven does hear our prayers in Christ’s Holy Name. I pray for the Lord’s Will in this precious child’s life.

It sounded so serious, Gunner, that I was afraid to hope but nonetheless we prayed for Jasmine. We’re not going to stop until you give the green light in your next update. Thank you, Lord, for sticking with Jasmine and her wonderful family.
Best news I’ve heard today. I’ll keep her in my prayers.
