Prayers needed for Onyx and her husband

Posted on 03/14/2005 1:02:01 AM PST by Trinity_Tx

Onyx's husband fell thru a glass door and severed an artery in his arm this morning. He almost bled to death while waiting for 911 to come, but they made it.

They've been at the hospital since noon, with him in and out of surgery. They are back in surgery now, with 3 surgeons trying to repair a lot of torn and severed veins and archeries. He's lost a lot of blood, they've given him 6 pints so far.

It's very complicated, but those are the basics.

Oh, Onyx! We are in prayer for you right now. When you read this, you will know that deep in the night we were with you in prayer.

Father, I lift up Onyx's husband to you. I call upon you in Jesus name, for you are God and You told me to call uponYou. Heal him Father! Hold Onyx, and let her see Your Face; touch her husband, and let him know that You are with him.

I pray this in Jesus name...

I did not realize what had happened until I read this message tonight.

Tonight, I had sent her a private e-mail, telling her about our puffer fish biting my wife and being flung out of the aquarium, and almost dying because of it.

Now I feel so darn silly!

I'm sorry... I was juggling between posting this, and the freepmails, and trying to remember nicks to ping...

Still trying to remember - I'm probably leaving out others, too.

My apologies to those I miss.

This just in from Onyx in private FReepmail:

"Nurse is letting me use computer from time to time. have to log off now, but wanted to tell you this

Husband is a doctor...he instructed me what to do... that's why he's still alive.

He was helping me move boxes when he tripped and his arm went thru the glass portion of a door. It almost severed his arm and the house is so full of blood, it looked like a murder took place.

It TOOK 911 17 minutes to get here. Then the emergency rooms in closest hospital were FULL... had to drive with sirens blaring an extra 10 minutes.

Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts. I am a mess."


Then I wrote to Onyx asking if she wanted me to relay the details of the accident and her husband's condition. Here's her latest:

From Onyx:

"Yes, go ahead and post the details. I'll have to give back the use of computer real soon.

Thank everybody for me too, will you please?

Oh, one surgeon just came out... he gave me a thumbs up, said maybe"


Continuous prayers for Onyx's husband's swift healing and for prayers for continued strength for Onyx.

No, they were together.

More details now that I'm a bit calmer...

They called 911. It took the paramedics, etc. 17 minutes to arrive. Then, the emergency rooms at the closest hospital were full, and it took another 10 minutes to get to the hospital where he is now.

That hospital's ER was almost as full, but they couldn't go further - the next one was probably just as full, anyway.

She is spending the night there. He was still in surgery 30 minutes ago.

She's being told that he has lost a huge amount of blood, but the saving grace is that, strangely enough, he has 2 arteries there instead of one as usual. Had he only had one, he wouldn't have made it.

I join with all these in prayer. Where two or three are gathered in God's name, here He is also...

Father, save Onyx's Husband, please. I come to You as Your child, as You told me to do. You told me to ask You for healing, and to trust You.

Heal this man. Save him, Father. I believe in You.

In Jesus name I pray it...
