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
