Welcome to our CaringBridge website for our brother, Lance. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Lance had moved from Washington state where he lived for 6 years, to Idaho where our Dad lives, and this year moved back to hometown of Irvine, California, for work and a fresh start after a decent recovery from a couple of small strokes he had in the past 5 years and a recent divorce. He has struggled a lot during this time, with little support or hope in his future. Now, he has had another more serious stroke a couple of weeks ago and was in rehab for the past week and 1/2. He hasn't had proper use his right arm or leg so was having help with that, however, he has also been experiencing severe sleep apnea as well, which hasn't helped him get the rest he needs to make better progress. Lance has our sister, Christina, in the area, checking in with him daily and taking on the stacks of paperwork that comes with health issues and insurance details. His sleep apnea wasn't being seriously addressed since all of this happened, he wasn't given oxygen which were in the doctors orders, and ended up having heart pain and vertigo this morning so was rushed to emergency hospital. He now has oxygen, thank God!
We appreciate any and all prayers for our brother who we want to help so badly. We four sisters of Lance, our Dad and good friend, Greg, love him dearly and are helping in any way we can, 3 of us from a distance. We are really relying on prayer as our brother needs a miracle. We all believe in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, our savior and healer. We are praying he lives and that his life will be transformed through this experience. There are many complications we are dealing with as far as insurance and after care for him, but the focus now is on getting him well enough that he can begin to recover while receiving the best care possible. Lance is a veteran, who served 4 years in the U.S. Army in the 80's and army reserves for many years after that. Thanks for your prayers!
