Prayers For Scott McDow

#1 Postby Marion » Mon Mar 11, 2019 11:08 pm

Shalom Brothers and Sisters!

I wanted to ask for prayers for my husband, Scott McDow. He had brain surgery last year to remove a tumor, and in the hospital he contracted MRSA, which is an antibiotic resistant infection. Unfortunately, the hospital didn't catch it, and we didn't get a proper diagnosis for about 6mo.

We are in Nepal on a diplomatic mission and need the Medical officer here to agree to medically evacuate him to the US for treatment.

Prayers for this to swiftly happen would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
Marion

Shalom All!

Thank you so much for taking up these prayers with me.
Last week, the request was put in to medevac Scott. Unfortunately the Dr. that put in the request said that he has a rash due to eczema, and a mild colonization of surface MRSA. This differs what what the Doctors here in Nepal have said, and what his Doctors in the US have said. He wrote a very detailed email to the Doctor and her boss, and a few other people. We really need her to put in the request for his actual diagnosis: Internal MRSA infection and resulting rash and abbesses, as well as MRSA infection in the liver that is resulting in elevated liver enzymes and jaundice.

We have decided that, at the end of this week, if the request is still being denied, we are just going to pay out of pocket to come to the US. His liver is now being effected to such an extent that if he doesn't get treated ASAP, he could go into liver failure or sepsis at any time. This would obviously be devastating as we are about 1 day away from any decent hospitals.

Your continued prayers are much needed and also much appreciated.

Shalom,
Marion

Shalom All,

We discussed it this morning, and we are tired of fighting to get treatment, so we decided to get on the first flight back to the US we can and just pay for it ourselves.

Blessings,
Marion

Shalom Brothers and Sisters!

I wanted to share that we were able to come to the US to seek treatment, and Scott is doing extremely well on the new plan. He was just tested for the presence of MRSA and he is completely clear, Praise God!
Thank you all for your prayers of healing, we both appreciate it greatly!

Blessings and Shalom,
Marion
