Deb Abbott Needs Your Prayers
 
Friends, we were just notified that Deb Abbott's son is in critical condition, needing multiple surgeries.

I ask that you please surround both Sean and Deb with all the healing loving energies you can for their highest good.

We will be leaving for the hospital in Texas and don't know when we can get back to you.

Thank you, from our hearts to yours...

Love...Peg and Deb

Update on Sean...
 
Update on Sean...

We just got back about two hours ago. Thank you everyone for your continued prayers and loving energies for Sean and Deb. He will most definitely need them.

Deb is right now gathering her thoughts for posting more details, but here is a bit of what happened.

Sean attempted to commit suicide by jumping off a 75 foot bridge! The doctors told us that statistically, this kind of jump has a 90% fatality rate, and that the 10% that do survive usually have brain damage among other complications. The good news is he does not have any brain damage and did not injure any vital organs, although one lung did collapse and half of the other lung collapsed. He was put on a ventilator to assist his breathing and of course is heavily sedated with numerous meds and morphine for the pain. He is semi conscious tho and is able to follow commands from the doctor. In the moment he knows when Deb is there and tries to respond, sometimes with tears falling from his eyes. But the nurses said that usually paitents this critical do not remember their time in there nor any conversations. When he does respond to Deb his blood pressure goes up and he starts breathing too rapidly and we were asked not to talk with him because it makes it difficult to keep him stable.

In essense, he has shattered almost every bone in his body and will need numerous multiple surgeries. He already has had 4 since we've been there and another is scheduled for today, and two more next week. He broke both arms, elbows, legs, feet shattered, pelvis broke in 3 or 4 places, and lower jaw bone disconnected. The surgeries so far are lasting anywhere from 5 to 7 hours! They are literally trying to piece him together. There was some internal bleeding in the brain and the abdomen which was a concern in the beginning, but now that seems to be correcting itself. The doctors say he is not terminal and that he will be able to walk again, although due to fuzing the ankles it will probably be with a limp and may have to use a cane. He will have limited use of his arms. His jawbone is worse than expected so the surgeon could not do what he originally intended. Instead he removed the loose teeth and tried to fuse together the jawbone which split itself down the middle instead of in half which is what he was expecting. So he put some screws in there temporarily and wired his mouth and jaw shut. They put in a trach to ventilate him from there instead of via the mouth/throat that was originally done. So the jaw surgery is postponed until about 6 weeks from now.

Basically he's been holding his own and they have been able to keep him stable. However, after yesterday's surgery, he had a low fever which they said was normal, but it has risen this morning to over 102 and his heart rate jumped to 160 and they are quite concerned about that. I think tho that they still went ahead with the surgery today.

That's about where it stands for now. Deb will call the hospital tonight to see how he is doing.

Thank you one and all for all your loving thoughts and prayers and healing energies... They are so appreciated...

Love...Peg

debabbott 09-03-2011 03:01 PM

I think this is something that we all need to grasp.
 
On August 24, 2011, Wednesday, late in the day, I got a call from the Chaplain at Harris Methodist Hospital in Ft. Worth, TX. He said this was very hard for him to do over the phone but that my son, Sean, had jumped off the Vickery Bridge from 75 feet. He said that my son was alive but in very critical condition. I will not interject my feelings here, as I am certain that anyone reading this would know of their own accord. So, Peg and I packed our bags in a wait of the morning for a trip to the bank to gather funds for the trip to Texas. We then headed out to Ft. Worth. Peg drove for about four hours and then I took the wheel. Seems I was more comfortable driving than being the passenger as I knew the way and it seemed to keep my mind more occupied.

Some twelve hours later, we got to the hospital and found that Sean had already been taken into one of the first surgeries that he would have to address. We were told that it would be a lengthy surgery throughout the night to stabilize his limbs and were told to go find a place to rest until the morning. So we did.

Back at the hospital the next morning, we were told that he was stable, he was in the Trauma ICU. It appeared that he had no brain damage and that his organs were functioning. The doctor said it was a miracle that he had survived this fall.

I met with the doctors and told them of my son’s wishes if he were ever in this position that he did not want life sustaining efforts. The doctor told me that he had no life threatening injuries and that he could survive this.

My heart was heavy, as my son and I had talked about this when he was here with me. I felt obligated to tell them of his choices and so I did. The doctor was so gracious in that he said, we will follow his desires but we have to do everything that we can do, in this instance to save his life. The doctor relieved me of the choices to be made by his statement that he could not morally or legally do anything else than what he was doing and that he would take that responsibility upon himself.

I told him that this was not the first time that my son had attempted to relieve himself from this earth plane. He conceded in saying that he understood and that I had done what my son wanted but now it was in his hands and not mine. He said that Sean was on a breathing machine and would be until they got him off of it. If they felt they had to put him back on it, then they wouldn’t because of his request. So, then we went forward.

Sean has gone through multiple surgeries in this past week. Arms, legs, and lower jaw bone. He has many more to go through.

Today, he had fever and rapid heart beat, so they are going to insert a mesh in his artery in his groin area to prevent a blood clot from reaching his brain. And yet they are still going to proceed with the next surgery on his left arm. He has multiple breaks and his elbow is crushed. Then tomorrow, they will do surgery on his right arm. The doctor says that there could be limited movement in his elbows from here on out as well as his ankle function. He may walk again but with limited mobility as well as pain.

So, we are looking at a long road here.

It has been my opinion for quite some time that there are those who simply do not wish to be here at this time, and I know that my son is one of those. That is why I seek to honor his wishes. I know, in my heart, that we are eternal beings and that we do not “die”. To me, it is a matter of choice as with everything else. We all choose where and what we want to experience at any given time.

So, I ask the all of you to simply insert your energies to accomplish just that for my son. Let us all intend for his highest good whatever that may be. Whether he is to remain on this earth plane or to go forward to another dimension of existence. I believe my son knows best for his advantage. So, let us simply give energy to his highest good.

I so appreciate all of your attentiveness in his regard. We will be keeping you updated as we go along.

Thank you all so much for your tender loving care.

Love, Deb

Wolfdog 09-03-2011 03:01 PM

Dear Deb,

As heartbreaking as I know it is for you to write this, I so appreciate your courage in doing so.

It is so difficult for us in the physical to wrap our minds and hearts around the thought of losing anyone, whether by natural means, or accident, or suicide. But often, in the emotion of loss, we forget that as eternal beings we are all seeking that connection of oneness with our Source, and sometimes, that healing comes through our transition, as hard as that is for those of us still in the physical. As you say, it is the choice of each individual soul to seek its highest good and sometimes the path it chooses to do this is not understood by those of us who will miss their physical presence in our lives.

Blessings to you my friend, for the deep love you have for your son is so apparant in what you have written to accept his wishes and surround him with love, whether he chooses now to stay or not.

Along with all here, I continue to surround Sean with loving healing energies for his highest good...

Hugging you so...
Love...Peg

Cher O 09-03-2011 07:09 PM

Deb,
 
I am so sorry you and Sean (and Peg) are going thru this.

You are an amazing spirit as I know Sean is. So as you ask, I am praying for the highest good of Sean, whatever that may be.... and of course the highest good for yourself and Peg.

I just cannot imagine how difficult this must be for all of you, tho I identify enough to sit here with tears in my eyes, so if this is full of typos, please understand.

I don't know if I could be as brave and open as you are being, Deb, if this were my son.... I tend to clutch at those around me even tho I believe the same things you do. For some reason, physical presence means everything to me.

Perhaps I can learn detachment from you and your strong belief in another existence.... I had that conviction once and lost it. Perhaps thru your and Sean's dynamic, I can get it back again. There is a lesson for all of us in this.

I have lost three relatives in the last two weeks. And my mother is 89 and my in-laws are in their 90's so more loss in the next few years is inevitable. I hope I can learn equanimity from you and your circumstances.

I am sorry I spent so much time talking about myself. But your situation was such a shock to my system I probably am not making sense at all.

Just let me close this by telling you I love you and am sending my intention for the highest good. I am sure the Universe knows what that is.

Love, C.

Cushings 09-03-2011 09:39 PM

Deb, you are an impressively wise and strong person, always treating others as you would appreciate consideration and Sean is a fortunate man to have you as his mother,as we all are, to have you as our friend. You are truly amazing because you are so consciously clear in the wake of such a tremendously critical situation regarding your child, you exhibit a magnificent level of enlightenment, to be able to communicate so well within monumental stress. Deb, for you, Sean, your family and friends are in my prayers and light, every blessing.

Love,
Di

I echo what Sunni/Jane and the others said. Lord have mercy !! Your strength and compassion are completely awe-inspiring. As a mother, I am sitting here with tears streaming down my cheeks, after reading about what Sean -- and you and your wonderful friends - - are experiencing.

Every ounce of healing love, warmth, energy and light are aimed at you right now, Deb. May this energy surround you, guide you, and bring you peace ...

My Heart is Overflowing...
 
My heart is overflowing from all the loving energies and prayers being sent our way. I am so grateful for each and every one of you in my life who are experiencing this with me. I feel the love so fully and am so grateful for that as it strengthens me. As my dear friend, Boglivia, my multi-dimensional self-guide recently stated, "It is not until we go through situations that calls us to rely on our beliefs, that we truly know that our beliefs are sustainable." And that is what I am experiencing now. I know that life is everlasting and that there really isn't any death but just a transition to another plane of experience.

My son left a note in his billfold - it had his blood on it as if a signature of his being. The blood seems to be so very significant in this lifeplane. As he wrote to his family and friends, he said to me:

"Mom, I love you, and I will see you again, you know that. Don't get down about this, it's my time to move on. Thank you for being you. Love you very much."

And he is still here. Apparently, there is something in his spirit that did not choose to move on right yet. Was this a pre-life agreement? Could it be, a gift for me, this experience to confirm my beliefs for me? That whether in the physical or the spiritual, that the energy of him is everlasting? That is what I am feeling. That is what I have come to believe and now I am experiencing it. I feel him teetering between this existance and another. And it all feels so beautiful. My son has been a teacher for me, in so many ways. And I think that his higher self is coming through for me to take note.

There are always possibilities. He could remain on this earthplane and have some sort of spiritual epiphany for himself and see that he still has a purpose to accommplish here. Or he could leave this plane and go on to other purposes in a different realm. Still his energy will remain solvent. Either way, I am confident that we will always remain connected in a beautiful way. That is the way that I am feeling it. He is teaching me another lesson of what love truly is - acceptance. I love him, no matter what he chooses. And I know that he will always be with me, no matter what. He is teaching me unconditional love. He is teaching me love. Nothing else matters so much as love. That is the only everlasting emotion - love.

As of today, he is in stable condition and facing yet another surgery tomorrow on his right arm and elbow. It has amazed all of us that he is going through these surgeries so well, so there is something in him that is hanging on. As the doctors say, they are working with a miracle.

So, my dear friends, thank you so much for your loving care. The days ahead will certainly show us many new enlightenments, I feel. Thanking you all for being here with me.

And yes, I do realize that when they take him off all the sedatives that he could come to and regret that he is still here and that certainly would be a living hell for him. That is what we are confronting. What will his choice be? I don't know, but I do know that my son is a very spiritual soul. So we will see.

Again, thanking you all so very much.

Love you all, Deb

Cher O 09-04-2011 07:49 PM

Deb,
 
You continue to amaze me, my friend.... Love, C.

sisterlura 09-05-2011 07:24 AM

Dear Deb,

Although we have never met, I can't begin to tell you what a powerful impact this journey that you and Sean are currently on is having on me. Thank you so much for sharing so openly with us here. I am in awe of your strenth, courage, inner wisdom and surrender to what is.

You & Sean are on my mind 24/7 and I keep putting myself in your shoes and wondering: could I EVER be so brave if my son Scott was in the bed instead of Sean? I think not; I pray yes. You are teaching me so much about how to graciously let go of so much .... to accept ... and to use every experience as a learning lesson. THANK YOU FOR THIS.

I pray mightily for your continued strength and guidance in the days ahead, Deb. May peace be - and - stay with you, and may light and love wrap you in snugness.

Love,
Lura

OneLight 09-05-2011 09:47 AM

To Sean...
 
Dear Sean-y,

Although you are not in a position to read this right now, I am trusting that the loving and compassionate energies of this letter will reach you in spirit. May it bring you peace and comfort to your entire Being.

I wish to Thank You for being You. Although I do not understand all the struggles and challenges you have experienced in your life, I do know that they played out the way they did to garner lessons and growth in spiritual evolvement.

I just finished re-reading all the posts in this thread and am amazed at how just one life can touch so many others – how can we possibly deny a connection between us all? Not just your mom, but your aunts and uncles, your grandmother, your friends, the medical team, and all those here on the Boards who are surrounding you with loving energies for your highest good.

Your present situation has impulsed many of us to go deep within ourselves and get in touch with what we truly believe. And it has further urged some of us to share our thoughts, and in that sharing we are all learning from you and from each other, which is beneficial in some way to us all. It doesn’t matter whether we agree or not with each other in choices made or beliefs held in the depths of our souls. What matters is the value we each receive through the sharing in further defining our individual truth.

So Sean-y, although you may not realize it consciously, you are a wonderful Teacher for many of us. Because what you chose to do, on a much deeper level, shows a Love that can touch others at their soul level by contemplating how your actions, and all the ramifications for you and others, can raise our own awareness and release what no longer serves us. We are all in this game of Life together, and everything that we each choose to do affects those around us in some way. I am learning that I am responsible for my actions and reactions. I am learning to be at peace with choices I am making through all of this, because as difficult as some of those choices are, I am becoming a better me, and I trust that that, in some way, will be of benefit to those I love and care about.

So Thank You, Sean-y, from my heart to yours, for helping us all in some way to discern a greater awareness of Life and Love, and all it entails, at all of its levels. Blessing you and surrounding you with Love and Light…

With Love….Sweet Pea

Making preparations for me to return to Ft. Worth
 
We saw numerous hawks on our return to NM. Sometimes there was a lone hawk circling over the highway above our car. On other occasions there were two hawks circling over us. We noticed this and made a statement to look up the hawk again in our Shaman Wisdom cards. And this is what it said:

I am Hawk. As my wings carry me over the fields below, I am filled with quite awe and love of Earth and Sky. I am a powerful warrior and take conflict in stride. I am assertive and perceptive, focusing on my intent. I observe, then act. I keenly identify new opportunities as well has hazards and challenges. I am powerful in my ability to maneuver through testy situations.

I am filled with quiet awe and love. Soaring into your world today, my head cocked and my wings spread, I rouse you to see through and above whatever situation you may find yourself in at this time. From my higher perspective, you can see hazards and obstacles that block your progress. Meanings are often camouflaged in our day-to-day routine. Listen for my shrill cry, and you will know it is time to obtain balance and insight. Follow your heart, your genuine truth.

We are now making preparations for me to return to Ft. Worth to be with my son at this time of his need and my need to be with him. Peg will stay in NM to take care of the homefront. We are currently checking out options of another vehicle as we only have one at this time. There are several options, we are now determining which is best.

I have been offered housing from my friends in Ft. Worth and several friends have offered monetary support for me to return as I was laid off from my job. Oh how I bless the Universe, Source Energy, God and my wonderful loving friends. Thank you all so very much for your assistance and your support. We are getting my laptop fixed so that I can take it with me so that I can stay in contact with the all of you. I am so grateful for your prayers and your loving intentions.

Love, Deb

Keeping you and Sean in my prayers and energy work.

This morning as I read the posts here a white feather came gently floating into my room thru a partially open window... It was a reminder that we have the support of the seen and unseen realities when we need it most. I think you both have angels helping now... Maybe a special one that delivered a calling card earlier today.

Keeping you in light, energy, and blanketed in love

Deb I am new here only since May2011. My thoughts and prayers are for you and your son Sean. I lost my 30 yr old son in April he had many problems and I am just finding out about them. It has been the hardest thing in my life so far that I have had to deal with, so my grief is still fresh and why you are on my mind so much. You sound like a very strong and spiritual person and I hope I will learn alot from you and the website. Until then know that my prayers are with you all. May you have the strength to be there for Sean in any way that may be. Know that we wish the best for you all. Monti
