Update On Tracy Stuffle

Here is the latest update on Tracy from his Caring Bridge page.  There are some positive signs, so please keep praying for him and the rest of the family.  Libbi mentions here she had been some 40 hours without sleep, pray for strength and rest for her.

Ok I forgot that I have not posted any thing since drainage cath was put in. Which I’ve been almost 40 hrs with no sleep. Can’t eat or sleep until I know my Sweet T is out of the woods! Yes, I know I have to take care of myself too, and I am.

Drainage cath was placed into brain to drain off blood from bleed out. The blood in the fluid cavities is draining off! We noticed movement about 30 minutes later. They now have Tracy sedated so all of his pressures can rest. He also needed a mouth inserted trach to open up his air way. Which is a breathing machine, not a vent! They’ve had to strap his left arm down due to him trying to pull tubes out.

As of right now, he is running a temp of 100. Sometimes this common because the brain controls the temp. But, Gonna keep an eye on it to make sure there’s not a infection somewhere.

They should be doing another CT scan Wednesday. I will update if they do.

I am sooooo overwhelmed at the out pouring of love that has been shown Tracy! He would never believe it! He sometimes feels like no one really cared about his part in the group. Well, I can’t wait for him to see all of you alls FB pages! I have set here beside him crying looking at pics, prayer request posting, kind and generous remarks about him!! Trust me I will show him as soon as he’s out of the woods! I don’t even know the correct words to use to express my gratitude and thanks for every prayer that has been lifted on his behalf! I love you all sooooooo much!! Please keep praying for my Sweet T!

UPDATE 1/23/2013 8:45AM

Not a lot of changes through the night other than temp is normal! PTL
They have had to up his blood pressure med. It’s having a hard time staying down where they need it even with added Meds. His nurse said this morning that if the BP goes too high and he has another bleed out, his life as he knew it would be done!

They are being VERY adamant about LESS visitors today and absolutely no talking and stimulation from the few visitors that they will allow today! I have been lectured twice on this in the last 9 or ten hours! They said they took by all the visitors he had yesterday and last night that he was a very loved and thought of person. But, the live is gonna have to wait til he’s out of the woods.
No CT scan will be done today, maybe tomorrow. Still allowing time for blood in the fluid cavities to drain off.  I will update later if any changes are made.

Thanks for all the overwhelming amount of prayers, text messages, phone calls and emails!!!! You will never ever know how much it means to our family!  Also one other thing: the guys Joseph and Bryan will be filling all dates this weekend! Ms Leah Melissa Page will be filling in for me. Leah is a very incredible singer and I requested her to step in to fill my place. I ask that you will continue to support the group during this time. I know if Tracy could speak he would tell you this would be a big support to him and for him. I feel my place is to be here during these crucial days. I beg you to please understand.
I love you all more than you will ever know!

    Libby and Stuffle family,

    I have followed the Perry’s ministry for many years and have been so blessed. When I learned of Tracy’s illness, my heart broke for you Lib and for his entire family. But I was imediately reminded that everything is sifted through the hands of God. Although WE may not know the reasons WHY, just know that our Heavenly Father knows best. In the midst of this storm, God is strengthening You Lib and He is doing a Great Work in Tracy. I pray for strength for your bodies and for your minds for all family members, I pray for Total Healing for Tracy. There is NOTHING, NOT NOTHING TO IMPOSSIBLE FOR OUR GOD!!! Trust and Believe! Even when the storm is raging and the clouds have darkened your light, know that He is working All things for your good. I pray Lib, for a Miracle! nothing short of that!! and I believe for YOU that HE can bring it to pass.
    Lean hard on the Master, just like the Ninety and Nine, you are His sheep, and you are broken at this time, but know the Good Shepard will hold you and Nuture you and mend you and when you are well and mended, He will let you down out of His Arms, but OH My how close you will have become to Him. so close that you won’t want to ever leave His side. I pray He will hold you today and the days ahead. Know that so many are praying for you and for Tracy. Total Healing.

    May God Bless and Strengthen You
