To those who are loving and praying for Rebecca…Today’s update was actually written by Brian to the family last evening and Christyn forwarded it to me. I am sharing it unedited just as Brian shared it. Christyn and Rebecca’s day yesterday was TOO WILD for Christyn to try to update anyone but her husband.
“First and foremost, R is ok now. Needed to say that before you read the rest.
Waited all day to do CT scan to check a potential fistula they think R might have and right before transport came to get her, she stood up to go to the bathroom and the catheter in her femoral artery came out and she started hemorrhaging. She called for C who immediately screamed for help while applying pressure to stop bleeding. 10+ docs and nurses ended up helping for 60+ minutes helping to stabilize and pull catheter. R is still struggling to control bleeding hours later and teams are coming in continually changing dressings the last few hours but the bleeding is less and less.
If that had happened in her sleep, we would have had a much different ending. Thanking God she dodged yet another bullet. Thankful beyond words for C and med team’s help. I was working at home with boys and didn’t even know this was happening since C couldn’t exactly stop to call me.
We cancelled tomorrow’s third plasmapheresis since her body has just been through too much right now. Postponed CT until after bleeding stops tomorrow (she has to be perfectly still right now with constant pressure on her site). We will read CT to see what we need to do there.
Girls are INCREDIBLY exhausted physically and emotionally. We’ve got to somehow find a way to get R stable, free from infection, and somewhat out of pain so we can hopefully go a few days without another serious complication. Please pray for rest and peace.”
“Dear Father…we DO PRAY FOR REST AND PEACE OVER THE WHOLE TAYLOR FAMILY. We are concerned for how long this has gone on…we are concerned for Rebecca and the repeated physical trauma she continues to endure…we are concerned for Christyn who has endured day after day after day after night after night of a continued emotional roller coaster ride that does not stop…we are concerned for Brian and the boys who live daily life without the presence of a wife/mother or sister….we are concerned about this family who continues to face SUCH ADVERSITY….we lift them to You, Father. You are THE ANSWER…You know Your Ways and Your Plans…have Your Way Father…bring them Your Peace that passes all understanding in these times of great hardship…please bring Rebecca to a calmer more stable state…soon”
In the Mighty Name of Jesus we offer our prayers…
