Default Need Prayers (UPDATE 10/1!!!!)

Hi all, well we are in need of a lot of prayer here.

My daughter Kelly, went to the Dr friday morning with headache, fever, chills, backache etc. MD said UTI. By saturday morning i thought the meds they gave her werent good enough so we called the MD again, they gave her much stronger meds, but by that afternoon i took her to the ER.

Shes 23, is in kidney failure and is 16 weeks pregnant. The pregnancy was a shock to us all as she was on birthcontrol and had no sypmtoms what so ever. She had pyleonephritis which was so severe it caused severe and almost immediate dehydration and necrosis in part of her kidney.

She was rushed to another hospital in Irving, and is so sick she is in step down ICU but now they are worried because she has BLASTS in her blood tests (which even as a nurse im not sure exactly what they mean, but they are immature blood cells often seen with a combo of high white cell count, the immature cells cant carry out thier jobs so are worthless and just take up space) she has a high white count and is anemic (getting blood as i speak)

So now were dealing with Acute renal failure (which is not improving at any great rate but isnt worse however the nice obgyn said she had never seen labs levels so high before..great ) and now were looking at having a bone marrow biopsy to rule out Leukemia. Plus there's still the baby trying to survive in all this.

I'm so stressed out, cant leave her bedside for more than 10 minutes, and my job is understanding but not thrilled as were so short staffed. A jan cruise is not even a worry to me now, but new i had to cancel my reservations and thought of my friends here who can help our family thru love and prayers.

I'll keep you all abreast of the situation, and thanks so much for your thoughts, i've posted a quick pic of my beautiful daughter so that when you pray you have her face to picture.

thank you all and god bless.

You have a beautiful daughter and she will be in my thoughts each and every day.

As a mother myself, I can't even imagine what you are going through so I'm going to say a prayer for you too.

Nursepoo, I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter. You are right though, not including you are her mother, she is certainly very beautiful.
Our prayers will be with her, her bab and of course you. Take care of yourself she's going to need you.
We'll also put her on our prayer-chain and prayer list at church. God be with them both.

My DW and I am very sorry to hear about your daughter. Just rest assure, you and your family will be in our morning prayers and I will send out a request to our Prayer Warriors when I get to work tomorrow morning.

A friend of ours just lost her grand baby that was 8 weeks old. We cannot even think of their lost and what you are going through.

Just ask for His Peace and He will carry you though this.

I am lifting Kelly and her baby up in prayer. I pray she will be healed and I pray that God will reveal to the doctors the right medications for both of them.

Nurseypoo
You've got our prayers for you, your daughter, and the unborn child. I know that I serve a God that can do anything and we will be in prayer for all of you. I will pass this info to other Christians and have their churches put this situation on their prayer lists also.

In His Service

Like mother like daughter. You two are two beautiful people and your daughter and her baby are in my prayers every day! I can relate as a mom with a child with a chronic illness and not wanting to leave her side. Keep the faith and I hope you see improvement daily. Once the antibiotics kick in - things will look up we hope. There is nothing I can say except you are in our prayers - all of you. Please keep us informed! Cyber hug to you.

She is Beautiful and they both are in our prayers. I am a dialysis nurse for 15 years so you have faith and ask lots of questions. Write down the answers and be the 'squeeky wheel" if you need to be. Don't let the doctors ignore your questions. I am praying for you and your family.
Acute renal failure can be resolved if caught in time and treated.
You have some great hospitals there in Texas. Be steadfast and
strong. You can do It. God Bless you and your family.
