Please Pray

Updated: Nov 30, 2018



Praying friends, we got a call this morning that our boy is in crisis. He’s developed a perforated bowel and the concern is that it could lead to an infection he can’t fight. We were put on the phone with a surgeon who explained that this is not uncommon, but that a drain would need to be put in immediately. It‘s very risky due to his age and fragility.


He is in surgery right now and Lisa and I are awaiting word from the waiting room.


UPDATE

Thank you for praying! We're grateful to report that the surgery went as well as can be expected. There are a number of concerns going forward and they'll be watching him even closer over the next several days. Please continue to pray that the drain does its job and that the perforation heals on its own. Pray also that he doesn’t develop an infection or additional complications as a result of the procedure.


We received good news from the doctor this evening that a head scan revealed no bleeding on the brain; something they're very concerned about, especially after a procedure like this one.

Praying for Jack to tolerate the drain and continue to grow and for encouragement for the LORD to sustain you during this. HE is faithful to give you the desires of your heart.

Praise the Lord! We just read Mindy Martin's 3rd Update on the Go Fund Me page for how the surgery went today. Great news that the little one handled the surgery well. We will be praying for the four prayer requests she mentioned: "Please pray: *That the drain does its job and that the perforation heals on its own. *That baby boy remains free from infection. *That he doesn’t develop any bleeding. *For strength & stamina for John & Lisa, and for peace that surpasses understanding to guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."


We love you, John and Lisa! We pray for a good night sleep for you-two tonight! We pray for a good rest for your precious baby boy tonight! We…

Amazing grace: this morning, only 2 minutes after John posted the prayer request, Beverly (volunteer at Grace To You today) pulled up mingledjoy.com to find the immediate need for prayer. The volunteers began praying specifically for the already-under-way surgery. We were so grateful to find out only two minutes after it was posted! We are all here for you, John and Lisa, to help in any way we can! It is our joy to pray for you-two and your precious little son! We are with you-two all the way! (From Tim and Julie Crabtree)
