Urgent GBS Update: Wednesday 21st April 2010

Dear All

Gary and Debbie Wood have contacted me and asked if I could get an urgent prayer request to you all for Luke. Luke has been very poorly today with his blood pressure and heart rate soaring to high levels and then plummeting like a stone.

He has had a variety of tests ran on him to see if their were complications other than the GBS and they have all come back negative, which is good news. However the doctors have just met with Gary and Debbie and told them that what has happened today is an autonomic response within Luke to the GBS and is very worrying. The doctor reminded them that there is a 10% mortality rate with GBS and what has happened to Luke today places Luke at risk of being within that 10%. Luke is now fully ventilated and resting.

Gary and Debbie ask that we pray for • God to preserve Luke’s life • That Luke’s blood pressure and heart rate would remain normal through out his recovery and that they wouldn’t go into this autonomic response again

“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Saviour, who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.” Psalm 68:19

Thank you everyone.
