Urgent Prayer Need

Dear Readers,
This is Daniel Lockwood. I thought I would let you know briefly of an urgent situation. I am currently sitting in a hospital in La Paz, waiting for Jaynee to return to her room. She is very delicate right now.
As you may know Jaynee had a misscarriage over a month ago, but the misscarriage never completed (another words the baby was still inside), but because there was no fever, pain or other signs of infection, Jaynee really wanted to wait it out to see if it would "complete" naturally. After almost 6 weeks, nothing had happened. So yesterday evening we decided to come to La Paz where there is better medical attention. Her appointment was at 8:00 a.m. After preparing her for the D&C, and praying together, they wheeled her into the quirofano (where they do surgeries).
After about an hour the nurse told me the Dr. needed to see me. He said that she was hemorrhaging badly and that they had to remove the uterus to stop the bleeding. I told them to do whatever they needed. What was supposed to be a fairly routine 20 minute procedure, turned into a 4 hour life and death surgery.
After the surgery they told me that she was stable. Apparently she had a placenta acreta which means that the placenta had grown into the tissue of the uterus, when they scraped it off, she began hemorrhaging.
She lost about 3 quarts of blood. She is very pale, in a great pain. As I was writing this post they just wheeled her in. Jaynee still does not know any of what I have told you. Please pray for her as you read this. We have a very BIG GOD who loves us immensely. For several hours I really thought I was going to loose her, but she is truly the Lord's. I praise the Lord for His protection.
Please pray for her recovery, and for the children. The Dr. said they are going to give her 3 units of blood every 4 hours. Pass the word around so that more will pray

  2. We will definitely be praying for Jaynee and you. May the Lord give you the blessed comfort that He is so able to give. "The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace."

  3. Daniel,

    You and Jayne will be in our prayers. We will be praying for your whole family. What a scary time this must have been for you. To think it was something simple and then thinking you were losing your best friend and mother of your children. Boy we serve an AMAZING God!!! I will be putting your family on our prayer chain at church also. That means somebody will be praying for your family every hour!!

    Your wife is an inspiration to my homeschooling and your whole family is just an amazing example of Christ's love.

    God Bless,
    Jennifer

  25. I had a similar experience two years ago, waking up to find out about the hysterectomy. My husband knows how it is to be the one waiting. God bless you both, you're in my prayers. It gets better, the Lord is with you and He will get you through this.

  30. I just found your blog tonight via a prayer request on Facebook. I will begin praying for your family tonight. I had placenta acreta 5 years ago, something that had not been seen in my clinic in Iowwa in over 20 years. I knew going into the surgery what was happening but still had very little time to prepare. My husband and I had 2 children. I too experienced great blood loss and had to have multiple blood transfusions. It took much time to get my strength back. The hardest part was accepting the finality of my uterus being gone. Of course, I was thankful to be alive, but there was grief as well. Over time God has gently showed me that he was in control of the whole situation from the beginning. I was in his hand the whole time. It was not a surprise to him. I learned in a very real way that sometimes the agenda that we have for our lives is different than the script that God has for our lives. His hand will hold you and sustain you. Trust his plan for your family and overflow with gratitude to Him. Weeping may last for the night, but joy will come with the morning. Many prayers...

  33. Hi Daniel,

    I read a request on Peggy's blog (Amazing Grace) to pray for your wife (Jaynee) and family.

    I just wanted to share that I'm praying for her recovery and that God's grace and love cover your family.

    Blessings and peace.

  34. Blessings Daniel & Jaynee...

    I should have written on this post since this is the one I linked to instead of a more current update.

    I am still praying and have added your blog here and prayer need to The Lighthouse of Prayer, Fearless Friday and Sweet P's via my blog. I think I mentioned the prayer need since Dia de Independicia and I shared it at my blog MISSIONS!
    (besides the one that MTJ shared above). You are surrounded by prayers and Our Comforter, Jaynee.

    Vaya co Dios y que Dios te sana y le bendiga a tu familia y tu esposo en el nombre del JesuCristo!
