I desperately need your prayers

I'm tired and don't have the energy to send out an email and make sure I get everyone included so this is the easiest way to let you know I am in urgent need of your prayers.

Complications have arose from my pregnancy with our son Jonathan. If you are reading my blog for the first time, I was 16 weeks pregnant with a baby boy, when we found out our baby's heart stopped beating. I was sent to the hospital to be induced and had our son on August 12th. You can read about that here.

I have not been feeling well physically since then. I'm extremely tired and have been having pains in my stomach. I won't go into too much detail but I knew something was wrong. I called Dr. T last night and he told me to come in today for an ultrasound.

The ultrasound showed very thick endrometrial lining and also what possibly looks to be small tumors. He explained that I could have Trophoblastic Disease of pregnancy. I'll let you all look that one up. I refrain because I just don't need to go there in my mind. What I do know is this. Tomorrow I will be admitted to the hospital for a D&C. This is not your typical D&C, is there really such a thing? It's much more complicated than that. My dr. wants to have a partner in the operating room with him, if that tells you anything. There is a risk of severe bleeding which would need a transfusion and worst case scenario, hysterectomy. I am believing neither of these things will happen.

Am I scared? Absolutely. Do I know the Lord can bring me peace. You bet I do, but it's only going to come through prayer. I would really appreciate it and I know so would Brian. Please pray for the girls. They know mommy doesn't feel good and it is scary because they don't really know what's going on. This morning when Sydney woke up the first thing she said, "Mommy are you still sick? Did your owie go away in your tummy"? I just told her not yet, but that Jesus was going to heal mommy.

I have dear friends coming to the house tonight to pray over me at 7:00. Would you pray with us wherever you are at 7:00 (CST)? Satan has to bow at the name of Jesus. He has no power or authority over Him. The enemy has been defeated, Praise God! Thank you so much. My story isn't done yet.

Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]

2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

oh Krista! I am so sorry....praying for you & the doctors. Praying for peace (for you) and praying for wisdom (for the doctors). Praying it will not result in a hysterectomy.

Kelly said...

I am so sorry! Definitely praying for peace during this time. May God guide the doctors hands and give them wisdom beyond themselves.

Shanon Manly said...

I am so sorry Krista, I will definitely be praying!! I sent this to my small group & the Bridges Prayer Team back home. I love you and know that you, Brian & the girls are being covered in prayers!!

Kimba said...

Heavenly Father, I pray for your hand to be upon Krista. Help her to rest in your strength. We know you are the Great Physician and are a God of miracles. We pray for your healing hand on her physically and emotionally. I pray for her sweet girls that they would find rest and comfort in you during this confusing time.

I came over from Kelly Stamps blog...

I lost twin sons at 23 weeks and I know your pain all too well. It's been almost 2 1/2 years....I also can imagine how scared and fearful you are having to go back into surgery. I will be praying for you. May God place His hand upon you and grant you peace.


I am so sorry about your sweet boy and little girl....


Coming here from Kelly's blog...

I didn't want to just pop in, read your story, and go on about my day. From one Christian woman, mother, and wife to another I pray that the peace of Lord rests upon you tonight and tomorrow as you go into surgery. Reading through some of your past posts, you seem to have a wonderful, loving husband who is a great source of strength for you. There is such a thing as miracles and I'm standing in agreement with so many other people that one is coming your way : ) Remember Krista, God goes before you and will keep you safe and in His ultimate care.


And you are right...no, your story isn't done yet!!

Katy said...

Will definitely be praying!!!!!! Praying right now too!

Melissa, Multi-Tasking Mama said...

I am so sorry and will for sure pray for you and your family!

Kelly said...

Krista, I do not know you nor have I visited your blog before today, but I think it is amazing how the Lord connects believers with each other. Over the past 6 months, my family and I have taken great comfort in the following verse as we have gone through some tough, unexplainable times.

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we do not know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayers out of wordless sighs, and our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God.
Romans 8: 26 (The Message)

I will be praying for you, your precious family and the doctors. Keep running to the Father, He'll never let you go!

Krista--I came over from Kelly's blog. I was captured and can understand your fears. I was diagnosed with Trophoblastic disease in Dec. 2003. I remember feeling so alone and no one knew how I was feeling because the disease is so rare. Please feel free to contact me to chat or if you have questions. I will be praying for you. Amy

I don't know you, in fact this is my first time visiting your blog. As I read your post tonight, a song came on my iTunes playlist. It's by Jeff Johnson and is called "I Stand in Awe of You." It brought tears to my eyes thinking that even in the toughest days of our lives we can stand in awe of our almighty Savior!

I'll be praying for you!

Southern Cinderella said...

Krista, I am so sorry to hear about this news, but do know that I am praying for you and so are so many other bloggers! I pray for the surgical team, your family, and you!! You are such a strong woman and you are always so encouraging to others! Stay strong!

Kelly said...

I prayed for you and will continue to do so. I asked specifically for God to send angels to be present in the operating room and to guide the surgeons hands. I will continue to keep you in my prayers and expect a good report. To God be the glory!

Marva said...

Sending prayers from Alabama! Hugs to you and yours!

Jennifer said...

Coming from Kelly's blog...You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Kristin said...

You will be fine. STop being so dramatic. You will have a D&C and there will be no complications. Stop putting that in your mind!
You should praise the Lord for the children you already have! Some people have NONE. Stop while you are ahead and enjoy what you have. Get the tubes tied already. Obviously you are not supposed to have more kids and risk dying so the ones you have lose a parent. Think of them for a change and stop being so selfish!!!!!

I lost a baby boy in 2004 due to GTD - I had a partial molar pregnancy, which sounds like what you had. There's bloodwork to follow up on, so be sure to ask your doc (you'll go every week for a while, then every month). It's not very common, so become informed! Once your hormone levels drop to zero for 3 months, you should be A-OK to try again. Hang in there, and know you're not alone!

Rachelle D said...

Hey Kris...God is good and faithful to answer the prayers of HIS children! I PRAISE HIM for the PEACE that was showered upon you and Brian last night during your time of prayer as HIS word was spoken over you!! The glow that was on your face when you got home was truly radiant!It reminded me of Ex 34:29-35. Truly AMAZING!
Conitnue to keep your eyes focused upon HIM all through out the day!
God is good and HE IS MIGHTY TO SAVE. Zeph3:17
I love you and I will see you tonight!
Love Auntie RoRo :)
