FROM TERESA

Its almost 3 Am and I am not sure
I can put three sentences together, but will try.  Terri has been so wonderful to post for me today…She was at our house in a matter of minutes of me getting the call and was able to go and help my Amanda get ready….and watch baby Jack. 
the manager of the Hampton Inn where they found Jack called me before we left Shreveport  to tell me we had as many rooms as we needed as long as we were in Dallas as their guest.  There are still kind people in the  world.  We are at the hotel for a few hours, though I am afraid sleep may not come. we have no idea how long Jack had been on the floor trying to get help when they found him after having to bust the door in.  It has been a nightmare.  We are so fortunate to have a very close friend that is a doctor…actually Jacks roommate from college and he was here several hours before us and has helped make every decision plus he speaks to us in lay terms and consults with the doctors.  We may be going back to the hospital as his heart rate has been dropping.  Without going into a million details,he had a stoke, he is in congestive heart failure and his kidney functions are not good.  Now they just called and his heart rate is dropping…  He is in ICU, in the stroke pod….whatever that is.  He has been in tremendous pain and this is a man that never complains about anything. He had a horrible procedure with no sedation and may never forget the trauma of that..and then the central line came out and he lost lots of blood quickly…
He does know us and we are all here…Dana stayed home with the babies. Parker does not know so should you run into him, say nothing.  Tomorrow there is a possibility of surgery as his ceratoid (sp) artery has some blockage.  There will be a consult with a vascular surgeon.  So at this point please pray that his breathing stabilizes and  that he makes it through the night….the next 24 hours are critical…I cannot thank you enough for all your prayers, texts, calls.  We have very limited cell coverage in the hospital…if you need to call into his room, the number is T325
214 818 8825
nurses station 214 820 3909
We are all here…..Micah flew in from a business trip in San Antonio and Greg and Amanda are with me so we are ok.   Will write more when I can.  Please pray the he lives, as 4 little boys really need this man……
With hearts full of gratitude, thanks
   for your prayers,
Teresa

Sweet friend

I promise you I am praying harder than ever. I even woke several times during the night and prayed. I am on my way to church and Jack, his doctors, you and your family will be on my heart and in my prayers.

Words do little to express the fear your family is feeling right now, but know there are a lot of people praying for your family in this time of need. Sandi

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Prayer is all I can give but I know that it's more than enough. Wonderful that there's a doctor there to really help you all through this. Please get some rest when you're able. You're in my thoughts and prayers, Teresa.

I'm dropping by from Kat's where I read about Jack. He is in my thoughts and prayers. You and all your family are also in my prayers.

I can only imagine the fear and sorrow in your heart right now.
Praying that God will answer all the prayers that are being sent to Him for Jack. How kind of the hotel to let you stay there. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh Teresa, my heart is going out to you. You have had so many uphill battles lately. Thinking of you and saying lots of prayers for Jack and all of you!

BARBIE said...

Teresa, I am just now getting caught up on your blog. I am praying for Jack, that he would be completely healed. May the peace of God which passes all understanding guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Life Happens said...

Keeping you and Jack in my prayers! May the healing hand of God be with Jack and his doctors.

gayle said...

Praying for your husband, you and your family!!

Stephanie said...

My heart is breaking for you. I am so sorry this has happened. Jack sounds like he is in good hands, though. My paternal grandfather had a stroke last month. He was unable to get that drug as well... but is recovering little by little and will live. I just know Jack will pull through. You and your family are in my prayers. And I know this is really superficial at a time like this, but I wanted to let you know that I will keep working on your blog and get it installed, we'll just make any changes all at once when you are ready. I'll e-mail you to let you know when I'm done but don't worry about answering right away, you have enough to deal with. You're in my thoughts!

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

Joining with those around the country and the world that are holding up your family in prayer.
Fondly,
Glenda

Sue said...

I pop in to see what you are up to with your darling grandsons now and then and was so saddened today to hear of your husband's stroke. I will be praying for him and your family and wisdom for the doctors. God's peace to you and your family.

Tanya said...

Dear sweet Teresa,
I just got on your blog and am so in a state of sadness and shock for what your Jack and all of you are enduring. My heart goes out to all of you and my prayers are immeditately for God's will. You are in such loving hands in that hospital but more than that...God's hands are wrapped around you. So many prayers will be heard for all of you and especially your sweet Jack. God bless all of you and I will continue to pray.

Teri said...

Praying for you and your dear husband. Much love and care, Teri

Sweet Teresa,

I am so sorry that this has happened. I am just learning about this right now as I read the latest update.

I love you my friend and I am praying for the Lord's divine intervention in all ways for Jack...A Miracle Of Healing. It is a scary thing to go through...I can relate somewhat to the heart procedures due to my husband's heart journey. I'm with you along with all your prayer warriors here. Rest in the sweet and precious arms of Jesus. He's watching over everything my friend.

I'm also praying for you and your family. May God grant you peace and cover you with an abundance of grace and tender mercies amidst this trying time.

My heart of love and prayers are wrapped around you, your family and your precious husband Jack.

I love you,
Alleluiabelle
