Urgent prayer request (Sad Update @ 257)
05/30/12 | self

Posted on 05/30/2012 1:25:25 PM PDT by Pining_4_TX

Fellow Freepers, please pray for a young mother named Debra. Three days ago she suffered placental abruption in her 32nd week of pregnancy. The baby, a little girl, was delivered by c-section and is doing well, but mom is critically ill due to blood loss and organ failure.

Much of this occurred due to some terrible mistakes made in the small town hospital where she delivered her baby, but she has since been flown to an excellent hospital in a nearby city.

She has had her blood replaced 3 times over, has had multiple surgeries, lost 90% of her intestines, is on dialysis, and is facing more surgery in the next few days.

She and her husband have another little girl (4) in addition to the new baby. The grandparents are friends of ours and go to our church.

Please pray! It is a matter of life and death.

Thank you.

Nos prières à Dieu augmentent pour Debra et sa famille.
(Our Prayers to God increase for Debra and his 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!)

Update on Debra’s condition. So many things have gone wrong for this poor woman, one wonders if there is a doctor in this city who hasn’t made some mistake in her case, and she is in one of our better hospitals. Scary.


Debra has once again become sore, just as she was before they “fixed” the internal leakage. During her previos surgery, the surgeon accidentally nicked her bladder while repairing a different leakage.

Later he went in with a scope and stitched the bladder. He also at some point, inserted a catheter. The doctor wanted no pressure on the kidneys until the stitches healed. Due to all the many injuries her body has had to endure, healing could take longer than usual.

Unfortunately, the catheter was allowed to clog. This blew out the catheter. Now they are checking it regularly so that doesn’t happen again.

Debra also started leaking from the incision on her abdomen. It is not as bad as before. It is not infected, and the leakage is only in one area, at least for now.

The doctors are trying to decide where to insert a tube for drainage and that procedure may have been done yesterday, or it will be done today.

Debra is in a great deal of pain.


That is the latest information I have. Please pray for Debra and her entire family. They have been through so much. Please pray that Debra’s pain would be eased, that the doctors would finally do something right (yes, I do feel that way about all the errors!), and that Debra and her family would have the strength to bear up under so much.

Thank you.

BTW, due to my being extremely tech-challenged, I don’t know how to reply to everyone on this list, short of typing in every single name. I understood that just typing in “all” doesn’t work.

So, please pass this along to everyone who would like to pray for Debra and her family. They are in great need of God’s mercy and care.

God bless,
Pining

Everyone should pray that the guardian angels will “assist” the doctors and nurses so that they will be more efficient.

We will definitely pray. Poor woman.

Praying hard. Lord, there is a family who very much needs Debra. Her children need their mother. Lord, hear our prayers for Debra, that she may be healed and that the medical staff who are treating her will have Divine wisdom concerning her care. Only You, Lord, know what has to be done. Thank you for what you will do. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Here is the latest on Debra and it is still not good.
I don’t know how much more this poor woman and her family can endure. This is from the family:


Debra went in for surgery on June 24. After her initial surgery, they discovered a fistula that needed to be closed. They tried laparoscopic surgery which was unsuccessful. They decided to go ahead and do a full surgery while she was there in the hospital.

It seemed she was on the mend and was going to go home when there was a clog in a catheter which caused a serious complication and basically un-did the repair.

She has now been in the ICU for almost 2 weeks. The doctors are perplexed concerning what to do next. Debra is very weary.

Thank you for keeping her in your prayers.


Freepers, please continue praying for Debra and her family and ask others in your prayer groups and churches to remember her, too.

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” ~ James 5:16

Prayers being sent for Debra for healing,, and comfort for her family.

She is in ICU- does she have someone (different family members), there most of time? This is not always possible, but, it can help to have an extra pair of eyes available (or be the squeaky wheel if she needs something, or they (family) notice something .)
However, the ICU nurse/patient ratio is much better, so she will be watched closely by them if someone can't be there .

You also mention she is in a bigger hospital, and that the doctors are perplexed as to what to do next.

Are there any medical schools near by?
Or ,maybe they could consult with the major name med schools out of state?
Not that they wouldn't do this anyway,
but, it can't hurt to ask them.

Medical schools will have the very latest information/technology available.

Maybe they can help come up with something?

Prayers that the doctors will find ways to help Debra heal. Lord hear our prayers -Amen
