Please Pray for my Brother-in-law Scott
Self

Posted on 01/27/2012 6:17:04 PM PST by infool7

My Brother-In-Law Scott is very ill

He was clearing brush in Hawaii and contracted a very aggressive Staph infection. He tried to battle the illness by himself for three weeks before calling for help and by the time the doctors discovered what was causing his symptoms, a great deal of damage had already been done, especially to his lungs. He is now in Septic Shock, his blood pressure is extremely low and the prognosis is not good.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers they are all so wonderful. So far the word is that though very low, Scott’s blood pressure is stabilizing. I will post more as I get news from my Sister.

How is Scott and the family doing? I think so long as they were able to stabilize his bp, they can prescribe drugs to keep it where it belongs. Hope he’s home and enjoying his family by now.

Thank you for your prayers and concern.

Scott has had a few setbacks and very close calls but is still hanging on. He is getting the absolute best care and it's quite obvious that everyone’s prayers are what has been giving him such amazing strength to fight on. He is still too ill for the needed surgery and we will your need continued prayers over the next few weeks.

Thank you and God Bless and keep you.

Just came in from the office...long day...got your update post...couldn’t think of a better way to close my day than in prayer. Health to the BIL and peace and comfort to his family. God is the Great Physician. He holds all of you in the palm of his hand and under the shadow of his wing. The medical team included too.

Thank you for the update and for the ping.

Prayers lifted, with thanks that Scott is well enough to undergo the surgery, and for strength to see both him and all who love him through it. Also dear Lord, please guide Scott’s medical team in their care for him.

May God hold you all close.

Thanks again for everyone’s continued prayers they are very comforting.

Scott’s surgery was very rough but never the less a success. They took him off sedation for most of the day yesterday. While I was reading the posts from this prayer thread aloud to him, Scott started to become very alert, especially at Dogbert41’s post #49, he began to focus and within the hour he was even responding to simple commands.

God Bless everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Thank you, everyone again for your continued thoughts and prayers.

Scott is improving and even speaking a few words at a time. Yesterday, as we were going for the day we said a prayer and my wife Ann got out the Holy Water to give Scott a blessing. He has so much difficulty speaking but much to my surprise out came “Use lot’s of it!”

This morning for the first time since we arrived Wednesday he seems to be resting comfortably.

Rejoice and Praise God Almighty!

Hey everyone

Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers. Scott actually got some rest yesterday and slept most of the morning. Even though it seems to hurt him a bit we have gotten him to laugh. There will be months of recovery ahead and we are praying that we have seen the last of the setbacks.

God makes miracles every day.

Sorry for not pinging everyone correctly, please look for updates in posts #74,#92 and #94
