Default Need special help from everyone ! Please Read !

As some of you might know my Daughter of 27 has crohn's disease . Well it started a sack on her wall of her stomach . It was the size of a gold ball . Hanover hospital put a drain in it and gave her 2 to 3 of the strongest meds to get rid of this . She was in the hospital for 7 days and sent home . The meds they gave her lasted 10 days then 3 days after that she had trouble keeping food down . So this time we took her to York hospital and they told us the drain that Hanover put in wasn't right and wouldn't work . So York put in a new one and showed my daughter how to clean and hep records on what comes out . They figured it would be in her for 2 weeks then should all be cleared up . Well Wed she had trouble keeping food down and by Friday couldn't even keep water . She had a Dr appointment on Fridays so when she went there he told her to go back to York to see what's causing the problem . My daughter was in very good spirits and was happy to go back to York to get her cleared up .
Well Her heart rate yesterday was low so they moved her to ICU . Things looked OK So Sherry and I went to see her today at 4pm . When we got there we had the biggest shock of our life's !
There was so many Dr's around her room and the light was flashing CODE BLUE . That means heart problems . My daughter's heart has stopped beating for some unknown reason ans they were doing CPR on her when we got there . The did get the heart going with one single shock .
She is now in intensive care fighting for her life right now ! I have never seen so many tubes and wires hooked up to someone like that before . We asked what the heck caused her heart to stop and everyone tells us the same thing , They have no idea on why this has happened ! We aren't sure if they aren't telling us something or what but I really don't understand why this should have happened so fast like this .
Also from all the meds they gave her all at once her kidneys is having trouble flushing them all out .
So right now my wife and I are praying all we can for my daughter . On top of that , Today was her birthday !

So what I am asking is for everyone you know to PLEASE pray for her life and a fast recovery .

Sp Please can everyone asked our Dear GOD to save my daughter and make her better . This is our only child since my wife had 3 miscarriages before we had my daughter .
My daughter never gave us any problems with drugs , smoked or anything like that . She was a honor student all the way through school and even got the Presidents Award when she Graduated . Shes a great kid that anyone would love to have . We don't understand why this is happening to us and just pray this will all come out OK with her .
So Thanks for everyone thoughts and prayers .

Please pray for my daughters life .

Thanks to everyone for all your help and prayers .
Jim

Jim, I will be praying for her and for strength for you and the rest of your family. There is nothing worse than sitting bedside with one of your children not knowing if they will live or die. I've been there not very long ago and know what you are feeling. There are many others on Fordbarn that have been there as well. Rod

Even a healthy heart can get out of sync with a single stray heart beat. The fact that it only took one shock is a good sign there likely is no heart damage. Been in medical business as an engineer for 40 yrs. I don't know about crohnes disease but will ask for G
ods help as well. Take care!

Jim, Rowdy brought this to the attn. of the Model A'ers. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers also. My stepson has Crohn's. We have run the gambit with him too. Nothing like this ever happened to him though. Stay strong and know that you are not alone.

Ron, your family and daughter will be in our prayers down under. Crohns disease is a disabling condition that is very treatable these days, but it has all sorts of twists. The ops your daughter has had recently have probably been the underlying cause for the cardiac complications. As mentioned already, the fact that it only took one shock to get her heart back in sync is a good sign. At 27 it would be unusual for her to have any underlying cardiac disease. Keep in good spirit in these difficult times for your family.
Kind regards.

Prayers rising.

Stay in the ICU day and night. It helps keep the medical professionals focused a little more often on your daughter. Wouldn't hurt to share stories about your daughter with the staff, either: buy-in helps, as does genuine praise.

My Mom and sister both spent time in that same hospital.

Hey Jim,

Our prayers have already started. We pray for you also as it can be difficult feeling so helpless. (been there) Of course that is where the Lord wants us. We pray peace over your family.
