A dear friend of mine needs urgent prayer (Sad news update at #80)

GT'er 23Skidoo Needs Prayers (Glocktalk)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He's had another stroke, his second in 2 years. This one sounds even worse than the first, from what his sister-in-law has said so far. This is what she posted initially, on 7/31

"I AM ASKING FOR PRAYERS FOR MY BROTHER-N-LAW. HE HAS HAD ANOTHER STROKE THIS MORNING AND AS OF RIGHT NOW THINGS DON'T LOOK VERY GOOD. SO PLEASE ASK GOD TO HELP HIM RECOVER."

And this is the update she gave me later,

"LONE UPDATE.....HE HASN'T WOKE UP YET BUT WHEN I GOT UP THERE I STARTED I STARTED PESTERING HIM TO WAKE UP AND HE DID OPEN HIS EYES BUT ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS. HE IS MOVING BOTH LEGS AND BOTH ARMS. HE JUST WON'T WAKE UP YET. THE BLEED IN THE BRAIN IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE THIS TIME. THIS STROKE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. THANK GOD HIS SISTER WAS THERE TO CALL 911 AND GET HIM TO THE HOSPITAL. I'LL TALK TO YOU TOMORROW AFTER I GET BACK FROM HOSPITAL AND GIVE YOU AN UPDATE"

Please send up prayers, mojo, good thoughts, etc for one of our own who needs it right now. Skidoo is a great guy and a good friend to many.

ETA: Here's the sad update from his sister as of this afternoon, (a few days ago)

"To friends and family. He had another stroke,on Sunday morning. He has lost his ability to speak and to swallow. He has directives that do not allow a feeding tube, ventilator, etc. Since he can't swallow his saliva is collecting in his lungs and he will get phenumonia. He can still communicate with thumbs up and down and he has chosen to go to Hubbard Hospice House to die. They say it will be about ten days. Please pray for God to comfort him and make this journey go as painlessly as possible.:

Then, another update...My friend Lone_Wolfe (who was shot in theater, survived against all odds and is now struggling with cancer) flew to be with him and he changed his mind and wants to fight to live. Wolfe called the police when he had the last stroke. She hadn't heard from him in a few days and got worried. She was in the sandbox then, where she could get better care for her injuries. The police went to his house and found him on the floor having had the first stroke. If she hadn't called, he would have died then.

Please, send up prayers for Skidoo, the family of Skidoo, and Lone_Wolfe

I know this post is not easily understood in the way of time, but the stroke was on Sunday, nearly a week ago...and the updates have come in since then. It was yesterday when he made the choice to fight.

Prayer ping. Please pray for my friend Skidoo, given first name is Jeff. Also, for my friend Lone_Wolfe, mentioned in the thread as having cancer and surviving being shot in theater, yet traveling to be with Skidoo during his final days, only to find out he wants to fight to live!

My sister in western Nebraska had a stroke about two months ago. After initial treatment she was airlifted to the Swedish Hospital in Denver that specializes in treating strokes.

Any chance that can happen?

She is now walking four blocks a day, and working on her focus in train of events.

My husband Ed had the worst kind of stroke there is with 1/3 of his brain cells dead on the left. The hospital told us he would die or be a vegetable, but they were very wrong. We also had a lady named Alice who was at our same rehabilitation center with a stroke that sounds like yours. It was a bleed and not dead cells. She was also told she wouldn’t make it but she has now gone home and can speak just fine and walks with a walker. She is even still improving. Both of these people are happy at their outcomes even though they are not perfect and the difference in their outcomes was that we all inspired them with hope and brain and physical exercise. If you would like some more info that might help you all, please contact me here or at edmartin22@earthlink.net My name is really Karen

Eternal Father, we offer Thee the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, Thy Beloved Son and my Divine Redeemer, for all my relations, friends and enemies, for the poor, the sick, and those in tribulation, and for all those for whom Thou willest I should pray, or knowest that I ought to pray.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Blessed and praised forevermore be Jesus Who hath saved us by His Precious Blood!

The news wasn’t so good today. This from his sister’s fb page,

“Keep your prayers up for Jeff. It’s possible that the water and applesauce have been going into his lungs. He failed his swallowing test today, but he will have a camera evaluation monday morning. It is a surgical procedure, so pray hard, otherwise we are back to square one.”

The big concerns here are than he may have pneumonia beginning in his lungs, and also that he may not regain enough ability to swallow that he could have the feeding tube removed in the future. If that’s the case, he’d never be able to leave a nursing home, and that’s not what he wants. We’ll have more answers on Monday, but if the prognosis is bad, Jeff may choose to go back to the hospice. None of us would blame him, but we hope things get better between now and Monday. Please keep praying.
