Skip to comments.My daughter is gravely ill, needs prayers! [Updates at #181, #223]

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.
Thank you so much for the update. Thank you God. Will continue to pray for her.
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! :)
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!
Thanks for the good news update. Prayers continue for your daughter and family.
Oh 60Gunner! I am so sorry to read your last post. Prayers continue of course.
Brad’s Gramma please see 60Gunner’s most recent post and ping the good folks.
Thank you for the update. Prayers continue...
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.
Continued prayers for Jasmine and the doctors caring for her. Prayers of thanks that things seem to have stabilized a bit.
Continued Prayers Up for your daughter!
Praise be to Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
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.
Thanks for the update, 60Gunner. Continued prayer for Jasmine.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.
May God grant all wisdom and skill to Jasmine’s medical providers..I am sad she had a downturn..Healing prayers going up.
Thank you for sharing Jasmine’s good news.
More prayers for your daughter and the family.
Continued prayers for Jasmine. May God bless and comfort her.
You and your family are in my prayers. May The Lord Bless and Keep you All. Bless the Doctors, techs, Nurses and all of her caregivers. Give Jazzie the strength to continue and patience to trust her parents and Doctors and, of course, in you.
In Your Son's Holy Name We Humbly Pray.
