Prayer Requests 1-22-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 3

A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.

Lord, how many are my foes!
    How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me,
    “God will not deliver him.”

But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
I call out to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy mountain.

I lie down and sleep;
    I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
I will not fear though tens of thousands
    assail me on every side.

Arise, Lord!
    Deliver me, my God!
   Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
    break the teeth of the wicked.

From the Lord comes deliverance.
    May your blessing be on your people.

  1. This?

    ~ Oxygen saturation
    Oxygen saturation refers to the percentage of oxygen in a person’s blood. Medical professionals often use a device called a pulse oximeter for either a quick test or continuous monitoring. The device can attach to the person’s fingertip.

    A healthy oxygen saturation level ranges between 95% and 100%Trusted Source. If a person’s levels drop below this range, they may experience symptoms associated with a lack of oxygen, such as trouble breathing and confusion. ~

    One of the medical folk here can probably answer and clarify. I know nothing (other than how to find something on the Internet).

  2. Thanks, DJ, research matters. Nurse daughter told me anything under ninety is concerning and mid eighties is reason to go in. We were mid eighties with our first bout. Oops.

  3. Praying — are you still snowed in or have the roads cleared?

    Also found this, but your nurse daughter is your best source, of course.

    ~ Before 2020, you probably didn’t think much about your blood oxygen levels. Maybe there was a time you got sick or needed surgery, and a health professional clipped a sensor to your fingertip to test your levels. It’s likely you haven’t thought about those measurements since then.

    Until this year, that is. COVID-19 has shown us how our lung health and oxygen levels are interconnected. And manufacturers of some of the latest fitness trackers are adding features that can measure blood oxygen levels. Here’s what you need to know.

    What does my blood oxygen level tell me?

    Your blood oxygen level measures how much oxygen is circulating with your red blood cells. You can measure your blood oxygen level with a pulse oximeter. That’s a small device that clips onto your fingertip. It shines a light into the tiny blood vessels in your finger and measures the oxygen from the light that’s reflected back.

    Your blood oxygen level is measured as a percentage—95 to 100 percent is considered normal.

    “If oxygen levels are below 88 percent, that is a cause for concern,” said Christian Bime, MD, a critical care medicine specialist with a focus in pulmonology at Banner – University Medical Center Tucson. If you see readings at or below this level, you should contact your health care provider immediately or go to the nearest urgent care center or emergency room. ~

  4. Praying for your husband, Mumsee.

    It matters if his o2 (oxygen) levels bounce down and won’t come up again. As long as as they come up again it should be ok. But it’s particularly concerning if it goes down and won’t come back up again. If that should happen, he probably needs supplemental oxygen.

    When he had covid, C was in respiratory failure at 84%. But now, his oxygen occasionally bounces down to 84% or lower without much problem—he just stops and does deliberate deep breathing exercises. Also, proning (lying on the stomach) does help open the lungs. I did that to increase my own o2 levels.

    Please stay in close contact with your nurse daughter. My son who works in a nursing/rehab center in Florida probably saved C’s life by telling him to call the ambulance when he did.

    In all these things, God is in control and he is our strength and refuge.

  5. When we took young Wesley in the middle of the night to ER for asthma related breathing problems, his oxygen reading was mid eighties and he would not be released until they got it up with extra nebulizer treatments. He never got admitted but we had to stay there for some hours. Those were scary times.

  6. Continuing prayer for son in law, who is still coughing and feels like he has been run over by a truck, though the rest of the family appears to be through it.

  7. Please pray for my dear friends J and JoAnn. You may remember me mentioning that J has dementia related to a type of Parkinson’s Disease. In the past couple of months, he has declined dramatically, and is now in hospice care in a nursing home. J is well over six feet tall, with broad shoulders, but now only weighs 138 pounds, as he cannot eat much anymore. The best they can do is feed him pudding. He is now on what is known as comfort care, and it looks like he doesn’t have much time left.

    As you may imagine, this is so hard on his wife JoAnn. The challenges of him having dementia were already hard to deal with, and led to him having to be admitted to a nursing home as he became a bit combative. But she wasn’t prepared for him to be in the process of dying so quickly.

    Also, please pray that God will use this to bring their older daughter Jennifer to Jesus. Thank you.
