Asking for prayers (Very sad news - dripp's wife has passed away - Update at #366)

Posted on 11/25/2006 5:35:32 PM PST by dripp

I come here often and read and get much enjoyment and knowledge. I dont post very often so I may seem like a stranger. My wife was diagnosed last Tuesday with with a 2 inch tumor in her lung that is probably cancerous. We would sure appreciate any prayers that anyone would be inclined to send up. She says isnt afraid of dying but doesnt really want to leave our girls yet. She is only 49, way to young.

The God of All Peace comfort and establish your hearts by grace, through Jesus Christ, His Son, the Beloved, in Whom we are Accepted.

Lord, show Thy Rich Mercy.

just wanted to post a short update. Things have settled down enough to where we find many moments of joys in the day now, we contribute that fact to the many prayers from friends and online friends for peace of mind and healing, thank you all. Donna has started chemo and seems to tolerate it decently. She does have some nausea for a couple of days, but thanks to a fellow Freeper we are going to try starting meds a couple of days before to see if this helps,thank you CDHART. Again, thank you all for the many prayers.

Donna started bleeding from her lungs last Sunday and spent till Wed in the hospital,it was a result from the chemo taking her blood counts to low. On Wed she went into full respitory arrest and agreed to be put on a vent with antibiotics to try and help, but with the option of being taken off if it didn’t work. She was doing great when suddenly Friday night the vent plugged up with a clot and she they lost her completely for 20 minutes.She had signed not to have cpr, but to have only comfort care,yet they worked with her trying to clear the vent and finally got a new tube in but she had been completely with out oxygen for 10 minutes flatlined completely and not pulse. They gave up and went out and were doing the paper work for the time of death when the monitor started going wild and she had a pulse and her heart started again and she started breathing again. She was completely unrespsonsive with her eyes and her hands were posturing so they told me she probably had massive brain damage or more probable brain dead. Then the new tube plugged up on the vent and I had to decide the most horrible thing. They unhooked everything and just administered morphine for comfort. You can just not comprehend the agony and yet I felt worse for my children. They gaurnteed me I did the right thing as the brain damage would be great. She suffered greatly taking every breath for about 3 hours. Then around midnight she became responsive to touch and new who we were, but couldn’t communicate by talking. Around 4 in the morning she became alert and I told her what happened and she wrote a note asking if she was dead. It took a kiss on the cheek to convince her she wasn’t. At 6 in the morning she got her voice back and wanted to talk to the kids. By 6:30 am she was drinking a diet pepsi. She has no brain damage and is breathing on her own with only oxygen. The whole medical staff is flabbergasted, the have her written down as a documented miracle. Even the most hard core were crying with joy. We are giving all credit to Jesus and even the hospital is admitting the cannot deny this. I don’t know what the future holds but we have our precious Donna for now. The dr wants to start radiation as soon as she build up strength. I know this is still touch and go but I cannot express my joy and kids joy for more time. Donna is on cloud 9 praising God to everyone she sees. I know this isn’t well written but I am stressed and going to take a shower and try to relax if possible Please keep all prayers coming…..Shawn

This is one of the most astonishing testimonies I have ever read. You have been through so much, Shawn. And you were there at Donna's side, watching the whole miracle unfold before your eyes and not knowing what the end result would be, but feeling the power in the whole thing, and not knowing how these powerful happenings, this powerful force, would end, or what would result, or how, after such power had passed, you would be able to stand.

And here you stand, praising the Power of Almighty God! Amen.

Lord God Almighty, thank You. Please don't let anyone forget ever or ever deny Your Power at work in and through Donna, in and through Shawn who was made able to bear it, these who love you and love one another so. Jesus - Thou Art Glory! Be Glorified more and more and more as these days progress! Lord, especially to and for the children, that they also may be able to bear up under all things by Thy Power and with Faith and Hope in Thy Name: Thy Name Is Love, the most powerful force on the earth (evil cannot defeat it).

Nothing can separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~Romans 8 and beyond

Refresh now your servants Donna and Shawn, and fill them for the next wave of power, that they may stand, and give You Glory regardless of how You choose to Move. We are vessels only: By Thy Matchless Grace, fit for Glory. Thank You Lord Jesus Christ, Elohim, Spirit of Life, the Holy God, Powerful Love Moving, amen.

"Forever, O Lord, thy word is firmly fixed in the heavens." Psalm 119:89.

"In His hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind." Job 12:10.

Unto You, O Lord, we sing glorious praise, for the truth of Your Word is in the witness of Your touch upon Shawn's beloved Donna. You have stretched forth Your hand and brought Donna again to her husband and children ... You have shown that You walk through the corridors and hallways and into the rooms of the sick and dying ... even the unbelieving now believe, such is Your Power and Glory.

Thank You, Most Merciful Father ... from Everlasting to Everlasting, thou art God. Seal the troublesome spots in Donna's lungs, that she would gain in strength. Grant the greatest wisdom to her medical team, that they might be obedient to the tasks You set before them. May their hearts be renewed, for You have appointed unto them to look upon Your Compassion and Mercy.

We rejoice with Shawn and Donna, O Lord ... Blessed be Your Name, now and forevermore. To You, O God, be the Glory ... Great things You have done, and continue to do. In the Holy Name of Jesus, we praise You, Amen ...

Wonderful, Merciful Saviour

Wonderful, merciful Saviour
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would've thought that a Lamb could
Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost our way
Oh, we've hopelessly lost the way


You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne
--(Dawn Rodgers, Eric Wyse)

Praising God with you. We pray that He will strengthen you both. He is God who is There. Jehovah Shammah

May the Grace of our LORD Jesus Christ, and the Love of God the Father, and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and forever.

Praying your Prayers and Praise with you, in our Master's Name.

"Hallelujah! Praise God from heaven,
Praise him from the mountaintops;
Praise him, all you his angels,
Praise him, all you his warriors,
Praise him, sun and moon,
Praise him, you morning stars;
Praise him, high heaven,
Praise him, heavenly rain clouds;
Praise, oh let them praise the name of God—
He spoke the word, and there they were!"

Thank You, O Savior, our Hope, our Peace, and our Strength. We Bow in Awe before Thy Majesty, our Loving God. Hold Donna and Shawn in Thy Tender Care, Glorious Savior, Glorious in Strength. In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be Praised Forevermore, amen.
