EPIC MIRACLE IN PROGRESS (RE: Prayer Request Last Night)
3/24/11

Posted on 03/24/2011 3:49:35 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache

Last night I posted a prayer request for my co-worker and friend Shane Sterrett..here is what was posted:

"Shane Sterrett is a fellow co-worker and friend to all of us at my company I work for. His desk is 2 spots next to mine...a huge Kansas Jayhawk fan...Shane has been off and on with his battle with Leukemia over the last 2 years coming and going back to work through out.

His desk had remained untouched the entire time and never was touched until this afternoon when boxes were brought to it and packed. He is married with young daughters who think the world of him.

He had a bone marrow transplant about 8 weeks ago and things were looking up until Saturday when things drastically took a sudden turn for the worst. A massive infection broke out in his lungs and a fungus traveled through out his immune system into his brain, kidney, and now his liver.

The fight has been declared over and the decision has been made to pull the plug tomorrow morning.

A prayer tonight for an individual who was loved by many and fought the good fight until he physically could do no more. A prayer for mercy and a painless passing.

Amen."

Here is the news from over night, this morning, and this afternoon.

The family was set to say good-bye's and final visits from friends this morning before the breathing machine's were to be shut down.

Around 11:30 last night...Shane began to communicate a bit and doctors moved his condition to Grave to Critical Guarded. Said that chances had gone from 10% to 30% for survival of the next 24 hours.

This morning as of 11 am Shane's condition scale was brought up to 40%. Certain cocktails of different drugs are starting to fight the fungus and prevent destruction of the liver.

We might be witnessing a miracle in the making folks. The decision to take him off the respirator has been called off...Shane is still very much here and FIGHTING.

Keep the prayers coming everyone! The response last night was great...the family's spirits have gone up and down as high and low as one could go in the span of the last 5 days.

We are on the verge of a comeback that nobody...even the family expected yesterday at this time.

Come on God...let's make this happen!
