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

PSALM 30

I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.

11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Good to hear.

I hope they can determine the source of the blood loss.

That’s fantastic news, Gunner! I’m so happy for Jasmine that she seems to be doing a little better. I’m praying for that move from ICU as I know what you mean about getting no real rest in there... You are wonderful parents for opening up your hearts to this little girl despite her medical difficulties (I am an adoptee myself). May God bless you all richly. Looking forward to hearing more good news as I keep praying! :)

Update as of 1/29/2012 at 7:50PM Pacific time:

Thanks for your prayers, all.

Jazzie has taken a bit of a downturn. She needs hi-flow oxygen to keep her levels above 91 percent now. She's very uncomfortable and really, really done with the whole hospital thing. Her hematocrit dropped to 24% from 31%, but improved somewhat to 29%.

Still no answers about the source or site of the bleeding.

If Jazzie begins to actively bleed, they'll do the blood marker test to find the source. They can't find it unless she is actively bleeding. At this point, we are conflicted between being grateful that her bleeding is very slow, and wishing that she would bleed a little more so we could find the site. It's very maddening.

Well, I have to turn in. I have to work in the ER tomorrow. Thanks for your continued prayers!

Gunner

Sorry to hear about the relapse, the road we travel as parents has a lot of bumps. Continued prayers for your daughter. She should like a plucky child and probably braver than most adults. I’m sure she secure with the knowledge of your family’s love and support.

Oh my Gunner. I have been offline most of the weekend, but am so thankful for the ping.

Will continue sending prayers up. For strength for your little one, and for you all, and for wisdom and guidance for her medical team, that they might find the source SOON, and FIX it.

Heavenly Father, please hold them all in your loving embrace.

UPDATE as of 1/31/2012 at 8:29 PM Pacific time:

Jasmine has dramatically improved- so much so that she was discharged home tonight. She's grumpy, mega-tired, and still a bit under the weather... but she's home. We have no idea where the bleeding came from because by the time they scoped her, the octreotide had done its job and stopped the bleeding.

It's very likely to happen again. We don't know when. We just pray that we will be awake and right there when it does so we can get to the ER pronto with as little blood loss as possible.

My wife and I want to give you all our warmest and sincerest thanks for your prayers and support. God bless all of you for your kindness.

Should anything new arise, I know where I can turn for prayer. You are awesome, dear brothers and sisters!

Gunner
