Urgent Prayer Needed For a Freeper's Dad
email | 4-10-2008 | Brad's Gramma

Posted on 04/10/2008 4:59:51 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma

Hi everyone....I received an email this afternoon from a Freeper who wishes to remain anonymous.

Part of the email reads as follows, with PRIVATE info removed...

"Dad is back in the hospital, with a confirmed stroke, and as of a couple hours ago, was diagnosed with a brain contusion and bleeding. He will be having brain surgery in the morning."

So...if you could ask for prayers for a FReeper's Dad, his name is Gary, he will be having brain surgery Thursday morning...he has a brain contusion, with a tear, bleeding, and fluid. (I don't know what any of this means.)

I WILL be able to post updates, as will trussell...and no, this isn't for trussell....we both hold prayer ping lists. :)

Dear Lord God, we come before you now, collectively, to pray for this dear Freeper's Dad. Please Lord, put your hand on Gary, please heal him of all illnesses in his body. Please guide the medical team who will work on him, giving them wisdom.

Lord, Gary's a Christian, he walks with you...please stay by his side now. Comfort his family...In Your Name, Amen!

It is an honor to pray for Gary, for his doctors and nurses to give him the best of care, for his comfort, his peace of mind, and most of all for the healing presence of Christ to return him speedily to perfect health. I also pray for family and friends, for their reassurance and peace.

Get well Gary.

My father-in-law went through successful emergency brain surgery (internal bleeding after a fall in a restaurant parking lot) at 91 years old. He is coming home (intact and fine) from rehab tomorrow.

Go Gary. You can do it.

Prayers up for Gary and family for a successful surgery.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Gary, my prayers are with you and you undergo surgery in the morning. If it was happening in my home town I would probably see you when I come in for surgery on Monday, April 14th. May the Lord be with you as well as your son and the surgeon.

Grammie, thanks for posting this thread.

Dear Lord, we come before you humbly now to pray once again for our FRiend’s father Gary. He’s going in for surgery tomorrow morning bright and early. The docs want to release the pressure from the bleeding in his head, and I’m sure they hope to ease the damage done by the stroke if at all possible. You are the Almighty, You are the Great Physician. Please watch over Gary’s surgery, be with his doctors, guide their hands, give them wisdom, and help them bring Gary back to us if that is Your plan for this family. We know they walk with You, that their faith is deep and abiding. We know they are in constant conversation with You over their concern for their husband and father. Please give them comfort in their hour of need, and show them that they are not alone in this world. Give them Peace, I ask, in Your Son Jesus’s most Holy Name...Amen.

So many FRiends prayed for my dad, when he was so ill.

I can’t tell you how much those prayers meant. I would sit here, weeping, as I read all the warm support, and couldn’t respond, except with a “Thank You” to our Heavenly Father for sending so many loving hearts my way, when it was really needed.

I return those prayers, now, as I pray for Gary and his family who loves him so much. I also pray for the doctors, the nurses, the anesthesiologist, the attendants, the aids, and even the housekeeping staff that cleans his room. They all play such an important part in total success of the outcome of Gary’s surgery. Thank you Lord for your willingness to hear and answer our prayers! Amen

It sounds like he fell, and developed bleeding around his brain (usually a subdural hematoma). This often looks just like a stroke on examination, and can be caused if you have a small stroke and fall (just to confuse things).

If they drain the clot, the person might or might not get better. If the clot is small, they will watch it. If the clot is too large, the brain might swell and cause death even with surgery.

On the other hand, sometimes taking the clot out leads to complete recovery. My aunt had a clot removed, and did fine.
