Prayer requested by snykerz

Urgent prayer request
From Snykerz | 07/16/2008 12:56:06 AM PDT

Dearest Prayer Warriors:

It’s been a long time since I have posted here on Freerepublic, but I remember how much you had helped me out with the prayers I had requested for my older sister Sherryl, and she is doing well. Now here I am again asking for your help.

My younger sister “Lori” needs all the prayers that anyone can spare. She was admitted to the hospital ( Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, Ca) a little over a week ago with a kidney infection, which turned into Gram Negative Sepsis with E-Coli, and developed Adult Respiratory Arrest Syndrome. That in it’s self was bad enough, but then on July 12th when they took her off the sedation medication, and she was not responding they sent her for a CAT scan and found that she had had 2 major strokes that affected both sides of her brain. The back of her brain was the part affected and there is still activity in the front of the brain. The doctors told me that if she survives this that she will most likely be paralyzed on both sides of her body with little or no sight.

I am in such a state of shock, and just numb, but cannot and refuse to accept that this is happening to my sister. I am in North Carolina, and being so far away from her makes it even worse, the doctors have told me that even if I were there, there is nothing I could do. Her children and hubby are with her and we are in constant contact. Please pray for Lori, the last I heard tonight was that her vital signs are stable and she responded a bit to stimulation by the nurses and moved her right side.

I have not given up hope or faith... I want her to come home and be whole again. I have called so many prayer lines asking for help because I know the power of prayer. If you know of any prayer line that is international, please let me know. I will forever remember the prayers you sent for “Sherryl” and the power those prayers had, will you please do the same for “Lori”? God Bless you and Thank you for listening to me. Her name is Lori Bruno and she is at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles..ICU.
In Faith,
snykerz

UPDATE

Urgent prayer requested through Pegita
From Snykerz | 07/16/2008 4:06:45 PM PDT

Dearest Pegita,
Thank you so much for letting all the Prayer Warriors know what's going on with my sister Lori. I have been waiting all day for an update and just got off the phone with her oldest son “ Freddie “... He said that there has not been much of a change, BUT she does respond to pin pricks and pinches (which tells me that she has feelings in her limbs and is not brain dead).. her oxygen level is down to 35% compared to 100% she has been on for the last week, and she is breathing a little on her own, her temp is down to 99.7. I told my nephew not to let the doctors discourage him as they have approached him about making arrangements to take her off the ventilator and feeding tube. He said he told the doctors that there is no way they are taking her off of anything, and that we just know that she is going to come out of this. The fact that she is responding to anything at this point is testimony that the prayers are at work and God hears them all. So, please keep the prayers going Lori’s way for a full recovery. I don't know how to respond to each wonderful prayer and email that is being sent, is there a way to let everyone know how she is doing at the same time? instead of trying to answer each one separately? I want to Thank each and everyone of you for your support and prayers, they mean so much. I will keep all of you updated as I hear the news, it’s hard because of the time change as I am 3 hrs ahead of Calif, and waiting for news is so difficult.
May God Bless all of you, you are truly Angels.
Marianne

The latest update I have at this moment, since I spoke with Jon last night, is that Lori has beat the Sepsis! The infection is gone! I am waiting to hear more as it is still early in Calif.. but I am so amazed at the healing that has taken place in such a short period of time, the power of Prayer is amazing. Thank You all so much, please keep the prayers going up for Lori as she not out of the woods yet, but everything looks better with each passing moment. I will update later tonight after Jon calls me and will let everyone know what's going on. They still don't know how much damage was done due to the strokes, so I am praying that she retains her eyesight.
Blessings to all of you
Marianne

I apologize for the delay in the update, but between bad weather (thunder storms) and being busy, I just can’t keep up! LOL

Lori is doing better and better with each passing day. She holds her drinks by herself and has been taking in as much water and fruit juice as she can handle. She even had some rice pudding tonight.... just a little, bit every bit counts. Jon ordered a trapeze unit to be put up above the bed so she can lift herself up and change positions. She will carry on a conversation with me over the phone but it is hard to hear what she is saying. Jon says she looks amazing... her color is back and she looks so healthy.

Just thought I would let everyone know whats going on, you have all been so wonderful.

I am going to send one of these to Lori, just to keep her entertained while she is in the hospital... as a matter of fact I want one for myself! They are so cute!

Dearest Pegita and everyone,
I have been waiting to post this wonderful update, but have been waiting for the right time to do so. “Our Lori” left the hospital last night and went home to be with her family!!!! It’s time for Praise! and more Praise! The trach and feeding tube have been removed, and she is eating solid foods and loves her Pepsi and Cranberry juice! LOL.
She has her hospital bed and wheelchair at home and is doing very well. The in-home nurse was there today giving instructions and everything is going well.
I would have posted this earlier but Lori did not get home until about midnight California time, and I found out at 3am my time.
I spoke with Lori on the phone this evening and I can make out most of what she has to say, but a speech therapist will be working with her.She is as sharp as a tack, but the words just dont come out right sometimes, and her eyesight is great! She is so happy to be at home with Jon, and the kids. She has been in the hospital for 3 mos now and now she is home with all those who love her.
Thank you Prayer Warriors from the bottom of my heart and soul for all you have done with helping Lori. If it had not been for all of you, I’m not sure what would have happened, the power of Prayer is amazing and I am forever grateful to each and everyone of you, you are all amazing. To God be all the glory! Amen!
With Blessings of Love
and a Thankful Heart
I send my love to each of you.
May God Bless you all.
In Faith as always,
Marianne

I forgot to add that I am so grateful and full of thanks to the almighty that this did NOT end up being another Terri Schivo story, I was so scared. I loved Terri and fought for her as all of you did. But Lori had her beloved “Jon” who did everything he could when the nurses and doctors did not. He got her drinking liquids, when the nurses said only ice chips, he cooked at home for her and brought it to the hospital for her and got her on solid foods, when the doctors said only soft mushy foods. He made her work her arms and legs when the phyiscal therapist passed her by, Jon was her Angel standing by. We should all be so lucky if it ever happens to us to have someone like my BIL Jon.
Its an happy ending folks!!!
God Bless
Marianne

What a wonderful and excellent update! I am so glad to see this good news. How true it is that having Jon there doing those things for Lori made all the difference. I have seen it in my own life and know there is no amount of medicine that can replace a loving and caring family member.

Please continue to keep us posted as things progress.

Brad’s Gramma: Snykerz has posted a great update on Lori.

All of you Prayer Warriors have been an inspiration to me since I first found FRee Republic. You played a large part in softening my heart, opening my mind, and increasing my knowledge... I have found a wonderful church and am bringing Christ ever more into my life. You are a blessing and prayer is powerful!

I'll never forget how all of you loved preemie baby, "Texas Termite" back into health with God's healing hand, and still see the image of Texas Cowboy holding his adopted "Termite." It brings tears to my eyes even now - how gentle and how loving - what a miracle, Praise God! All you Prayer Warriors BTTT Love, Libby
