NEED MIGHTY PRAYERS....

Monday October 30th~ Today was a rough day.  Brian developed a gastro bleed.  They went in with a scope and cauterized it yesterday morning but this morning he had a bleed again.  He is back in ICU where they did another scope and cauterized it again.  It’s the same area.  They will watch over the next several hours and if it bleeds again they will have to do a more invasive procedure to make it stop.  Please pray it will stop now so no further procedure will be needed.  I am alone here right now and need prayers for strength and courage to do what I need to for him.  Our son Scott was here over the weekend but left yesterday when things looked ok.  I think this is just a bump in the road but it’s making a difficult recovery all the harder.  Thank you so much for your mighty prayers.  Blessings, Lori

A PLAN

Finally we have a plan!  We talked to the doctor today and Brian will stay here in the hospital in Madison, WI for another week or so until he has healed a bit more and then will be going to Acute Rehab in Wausau, WI which is half the distance from here so that will be easier for me to go back and forth to home when needed.  Our little Zoe girl is being kenneled but she is in good hands so she will probably stay there until I know I can go back and forth and bring her to see Brian.  She will be good medicine for him then.  We miss her terribly.  Each day is a gift and we are two weeks into this journey now.  To God be all the glory for his great and tender mercies.  Thank you to each one praying mighty prayers for us.  We know the Lord is at work in our lives and we continue to trust He knows best and that He will use this time in our lives for His good.  Blessings to all, Lori

THE LORD SAYS:

I HAVE HEARD YOUR PRAYER AND SEEN YOUR TEARS.

Now that I’m able to discuss things with Brian he has given permission to tell you what we need special prayers for. Brian is in the percentage of people that have a spinal cord stroke during this particular surgery. As far as the medical professionals are concerned it is permanent but we are not giving up hope for a blessing of healing. We don’t know the full extent yet and our lives may be changed forever but we are blessed to still be here together. Whatever happens we pray the Lord can use this time in our lives for His glory. We have a very long road ahead. We will need your prayers and thoughts for a long time. We thank you so much for all of the caring comments and prayers. Even in the midst of all this turmoil His peace surrounds us. Brian and Lori

TO ALL PRAYER WARRIORS......


MY HUBBY BRIAN AND I WOULD
ASK AN INTEREST IN YOUR PRAYERS
FOR HIS UPCOMING SURGERY THIS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13TH AT 
THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN
HOSPITAL IN MADISON, WI AND 
HIS RECOVERY.

SOME OF YOU KNOW THAT FIVE YEARS
AGO BRIAN HAD EMERGENCY SURGERY
FOR AN ASCENDING AORTIC DISSECTION.
WE WERE SO BLESSED THAT HE MADE
IT THROUGH THAT SURGERY AND HAS
BEEN DOING WELL BUT AT THE SAME
TIME THAT DISSECTION HAPPENED 
HE ALSO HAD A DESCENDING ONE.
THEY HAVE BEEN KEEPING AN EYE ON
IT AND IT'S TIME WE HAVE TO REPAIR IT.
THIS ISN'T A ROAD WE WANTED TO 
WALK AGAIN BUT WE KNOW CHRIST JESUS
IS WALKING BESIDE US ALL THE WAY.
THIS WILL BE A VERY MAJOR SURGERY
AND WE WILL BE THERE ABOUT TWO 
WEEKS IF ALL GOES WELL.

HE HAS TO BE AT THE HOSPITAL BY 5:30
AM CENTRAL TIME ON FRIDAY AND IT
WILL BE A VERY LONG DAY.  A BIG
RISK IS SPINAL CORD PARALYSIS.  WE WOULD
ASK YOU TO GUIDE THE SURGEON DR. ACHER
AND HIS TEAM AND THAT THE LORD 
WOULD GO BEFORE US AND PREPARE THE WAY.
HE HAS BLESSED US SO RICHLY AND WE PRAISE HIM
FOR HIS TENDER MERCY.  WE BELIEVE IN THE 
POWER OF PRAYER.  WE 
PRAY THERE WILL BE NO
COMPLICATIONS.  WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS.  I'LL POST HERE 
WHEN I'M ABLE TO GIVE AN UPDATE.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR 
HEARTS MY FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS.

I WILL BE ABLE TO EMAIL ANY E~PATTERNS ORDERED
BUT ANY PURCHASES OF ITEMS TO BE SHIPPED
WILL WAIT UNTIL WE RETURN.  THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU......LORI
