My daughter is gravely ill, needs prayers! [Updates at #181, #223]
1/26/2012 | 60Gunner

Posted on 01/26/2012 8:20:39 PM PST by 60Gunner

Hey, friends.

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.

Gunner

You need not fear prayer, for the God to whom you pray is the victor over the devil. When you sense the devil near as you pray to the Lord in Jesus' name, know this: God is your defender and vindicator, and nobody can snatch you out of His hand. Nothing can separate you from the love of God.

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 up for Jasmine and family.

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 c’est à Toi qu’appartiennent 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!)

Thank you all for your prayers. I was moved to tears by your overwhelming responses. What a family we have here!

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

UPDATE as of 1/28/12 4:09PM (Pacific time):

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.
