Prayer Update for Tiffany

5
Dear Family and Friends,

We would covet your prayers at this time.  Last night about 2 a.m. we made the decision to have Tiffany taken to ICU because her breathing worsened and the infection in her blood has come back.  The present theory is that the MRSA in her lungs is reinfecting her blood with MRSA which then takes a toll on her body and makes breathing very hard.  The decision to go to the ICU was initially made as a proactive cautious choice but as the day has progressed it has proven to be a good decision as things have worsened. She is breathing with the assistance of a B-pap machine which helps with the inhaling and exhaling. At this point she seems to be responding well to that extra help.  This afternoon we will see how she is doing but the next step is to put her on a ventilator. The reality is that the prognosis is not good if she goes on the ventilator due to the major infections.  They have started her on a cocktail of antibiotics to address all of the infections.  We should know in the next 24 hours how her body is going to respond to these treatments. As I write this, she is resting quietly.

Tiffany is actually doing pretty good emotionally. She is content with God's design for her life. We are simply resting in God and His perfect plan. Please pray that God would accomplish His plan in our life.

Here are some specifics you can pray for -- 

1. That her body would respond to the drugs positively and we could avoid the ventilator.
2. That we would be strengthened in the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord
3. That God would give safety to family who are traveling in.
4. That we would have the peace of God.
5. That God would accomplish His perfect plan.

Here are some things to praise God for --
1. The decision to come to ICU was made at a non crisis time which is enabling better care today
2. Tiffany's Mom stayed here after she and her husband visited for Thanksgiving
3. That God is God and we are not!

Thank you for all of your love and support. 

David and Tiffany Brock
