Prayers PLEASE...for a sweet new mother and her family!

****UPDATE**** 6-02-08...I just heard from my daughter that Stephanie is mending...albeit slowly and with a lot of pain. She was able to sit up for the very first time yesterday for a brief period. Her husband made it in from his post in the Middle East and they say it improved her spirits immensely! I am thrilled he was able to get here soon! She is still in ICU...but I was told that hopefully they will be able to move her to a room, soon. I guess she has a few more hurdles to get over before they move her and I would think pain management would be one of them. Please continue to pray for her and for a complete and speedy recovery...as you all know she has a beautiful baby girl that is 6 months old and I know she is very anxious to be with her full time again! Her family and she are very grateful and want to thank you all for your prayers...and I personally want to thank each of you that have prayed, emailed or posted about this. Blessings to you all! I will update as soon as I know more...Thanks again!!***












Friends, Family and Fellow prayer warriors...I have an urgent request. Last night a long time friend of our families; beautiful daughter who just became a mother herself 6 months ago...was hit by a drunk driver. She is in the ICU of a wonderful hospital in our area...she is suffering from a bruised liver, torn diaphram, punctured lung, broken and cracked ribs, broken pelvis and broken teeth. She was just in our home on Wednesday with her precious baby girl...Brooklyn...my daughter was taking pictures of the 2 of them and it was very apparant to both of us that Stephanie is a wonderful mom! She currently lives in California but is home visiting her parents for a month while her husband is deployed for training somewhere in the Middle East...luckily the Red Cross is flying him home, immediately!

Please, please pray for Stephanie, her baby, her husband, her mom and dad Harry and Debbie, her sister Ali (who has been friends with my daughter since 5th grade) her brother, and all of her extended family and friends. They are a very sweet and loving family...and this young lady has so much "spunk" and "joy" in her that I just know she is going to pull through...but her recovery may take a while. I am praying for a complete and total recovery, that she be re-united with her baby, husband and family very soon...and that she be totally healed!

These are a couple of pictures Jackie took of Stephanie and Brooklyn on Wednesday...they are beautiful, look at those blue, blue eyes...just gorgeous! I am heartbroken for all of her family...but I know she is going to heal...God is good and he will work miracles....Please continue to pray...and I will update you all when I know more....they are such a sweet and beautiful family....all your prayers are so greatly appreciated!!

Oh, they should take all the drunk drivers and NEVER give them a driver's license again!

What beautiful photos! Yes, I will be praying... I'm so glad her husband was able to come home to be with her. I have a good feeling that she is going to be okay.

I've been absent a while, so just getting caught up. Thank you so much for all you did for Buddy Will. I don't understand how people can be so cruel and inhumane. So disturbing.

Love,
Deb

Hi Teresa,

I am so sorry about this. I will pray for this beautiful girl and her family. Those photos are beautiful. Keep us updated on her condition.

I am adding this beautiful mother and her family to my daily prayer list. Please keep us posted. I pray for a speedy recovery. With all the intervention on Drinking and Driving you would think this is the one thing we could control and stop. So sad

Thanks for the update, so glad that all is going better and her hubby was able to get home. I'm sure that did help her immensely!
hugs
Sandi
ps
how is Buddy Will doing?

Tonja said...

I am still praying...hope her recovery is swift! God bless! Thanks for updating us!

Terri said...

I hope she's better today. Thank goodness she's still here! In my hometown a drunk driver hit a church bus returning from a day at an amusement park and killed 27 people.
Praying for her and her family.

Cindy said...

That is so sad! Thank goodness it wasn't any worse that this! Drunk drivers make me so mad!!!

Oh Teresa...I am so sorry for this beautiful young woman.
She will be in our prayers...what an awful thing to have happened. The photos are stunning and looking at them will give her such joy.
I am so glad her husband made it back to her side...
Bless them all.

I was also glad to hear that Buddy Will is healing. I get so upset when I hear about those that abuse innocent animals. He is so lucky he found you. Bless you sweet T. You are one of the best hearts in all the world.

Love,
Sue
