Prayer Request (Please and Thank You!)
shibumi's ownself | 2/2/2012 | shibumi

Posted on 02/02/2012 2:12:18 AM PST by shibumi

My oldest son, Michael (Mick) who just turned 27 last month, has been a Type 1 Diabetic with zero pancreatic function (and all the complications which that implies) since he was 12 years old.

About an hour ago, we received a call from the IU Medical Center Transplant Team, where he has been on the recipient list for about a year. They have a possible donor.

Mick is now en route to Indianapolis to begin the pre-op at 7AM.

Your prayers would be appreciated for both my son and for the salvation of the soul of the potential donor, who has just passed from this life.

Prayers this morning for you and yours. May the Drs feel His presence and your son surround by his blessings.

Stay calm God IS in charge now. IU med center has a wonderful staff. They take care of the patient and the family. Ask and you shall receive.

If you need any specific prayers let us know.

Your son is in my prayers, along with the repose of the soul of the donor. (awkward to phrase, but great, just the same)

My most sincere and heartfelt prayers go out to your son, your entire family and the potential donor’s family as well. My Mom was diagnosed diabetic at 18 mos. old (in 1940) - she received a kidney transplant when I was a Jr. in High School (Christmas Day, 1988). I remember well all the emotions.

May God hold all of you in his embrace and may you all be blessed with the peace that surpasses all understanding. I will be thinking of all of you (and the teams of doctors as well). May this person and family’s gift bring the gift of life and good health to as many people as possible - most especially for your son.

Most sincerely,
LR

Praying for a good recovery and that Mick’s body will accept the foreign organ gracefully. Praying that his doctors hands and minds are steady.

Praying for the family of the donor, may they feel some comfort knowing their family member is giving life to (hopefully) several other people including Mick!

Dear Heavenly Father, We pray on behalf of our brother, Mick. Lord, please guide the surgeons with knowledge and skill. Make Mick’s body whole and healed. Please be with the family and we pray that they feel Your love and compassion. We also pray, Lord, for the soul of the person who selflessly donated his organ to Mick. May he or she rejoice with You in their act of kindness and love. May peace be bestowed upon the family of the deceased with the hope that they accept one death and rejoice in the saving of another brother or son. In This I Pray. Amen.

**** Please keep us updated. Prayers your way. Hugs, Mom
