Way out of sorts

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Forgive my absence my friends.
My husband had ankle fusion surgery yesterday, followed by complications that began in recovery.

His heart rate, respiration, pulse dropped and they called a code, performed cpr. He was sent to CCU. They can't determine what caused the drop, and meanwhile they broke his ribs during CPR, and he has a collapsed right lung. He is intubated, sedated, and they inserted a chest tube last night.

This morning he is running a temperature, and they are trying to determine what is causing it.

Thanks for your prayers.
I am way out of sorts right now.

    Oh Wow,
    I am so sorry to hear of the complications and set back. I will be praying for you. I am headed to church and I will ask for some of our prayer warriors to do the same.

    Dear Father,
    You know everything about this situation. You know the plans for the surgery and the things that happened. I know that his life is in your hands. I ask that you will give the doctors all wisdom about what to do to bring about recovery and health. I pray right now that your everlasting arms would be under him to lift him up. I pray that his heart will be strengthened, his breathing will be strong and steady, his blood will circulate through out his body as it is designed to do, his broken ribs will stay strong and mend quickly, his lung would be made whole and be able to bring in the air he needs. Lord please help him to be strengthen and no longer need to have a tube to breath. Help him to be able to take deep breaths on his own. I pray that your healing hand will take the fever from him. All this things are under your control, we pray for you mercy and healing for him.

    I pray that your comfort and peace will be with his wife. Help her to lean on you. We pray for strength, wisdom and help in each step she makes.

    In Jesus name I pray, Amen

    Big hugs and many prayers and good wishes to both of you,

    So sorry to hear about your DH. Prayers coming your way.

    Dear Lord, please bless these dear friends and guide the doctors to help them find what is causing these problems. Please restore the health to DH and give strength to both as they deal with all of this.

    Lord, please help restore this man to full health so that he may continue to be a great husband and the man you want him to be. Please grant peace to his wonderful wife and family during this time. In Jesus' name, Amen!

    Way out of sorts is right! Many prayers are being sent your way. I pray that you feel God's loving arms of comfort, that He gives you peace instead of worry, that soon you see signs of hope and improvement. I pray that your husband isn't in too much pain and discomfort, that he steadily improves and that even if the doctors don't find the cause that he is cured. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen!
