The Adamo Family needs our help! This gofundme account has been created to help with funeral, medical and just all expenses as they navigate this incredibly difficult time in their lives. 

Update from Sarah:

Today (Thursday) at about 1:50 PM Mountain time, Jacob met his creator face to face.

I have no words, no emojis to give. My soul is numb. His body didn't want to go anymore and things started failing.

I have one more request... pray for wisdom and the wherewithal to get through the next few days. There will be lots of decisions to be made.

I'm headed home to love on my babies. And to tell them how much their Daddy loved them. ❤

Thank you for your prayers and support during this time. As soon as we have a date for his service, I will let you all know. ❤

From Sarah: April 8, 2018 Update on Jacob... went to the ER... and he had some blood tests. For those nerdy friends his bilibuben level was 39...and his creatinine was at 8 (.5 to 1 is normal for his age). The doc said he needed a specialist (hepatologist) so he is en-route to Denver (UC Health in Aurora) ICU via ambulance where he is getting a CT scan. The pic is him just leaving the ER for the ambulance. I am on my way down with Thea (his mom). We will then get an official diagnoses.

How am I? Wrecked. My birthday is tomorrow and our 15th anniversary is Thursday and the worst case stuff discussed in the ER were things like "kidney failure" and "transplant". Not the words you want to hear.

The kids are at home being cared for. I am going to try and keep Mike Marlow updated as to his condition and for those that are local Leslie Marshall has set up a Meal Train ( https://mealtrain.com/68g4nk ) and a fundraiser to help with travel expenses. You can also reach out to Thea Adamo or Sherma Cundall if you cannot get ahold of me right away.

Please pray for answers and for healing, for my sanity, and for our kids as we walk this out. I don't know how long I'm going to be down in Denver with him... just all the nitty gritty details are up in the air right now. Thank you so much to everyone who have already jumped in. I'm so thankful for you.

I will update as soon as I know more.

I’ll give you a bit of backstory first—then tell you the prayer needs.
Jacob’s liver and kidneys have had 0 function for days, and there is no chance of survival without either a God miracle, or a new liver and kidneys. At 5:45 this morning, the Adamos got a call from a Young Living member in Iowa. A family member had a bleed that caused death to the brain. Their liver and kidneys are healthy. They have specifically requested that the organs to go to Jacob!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Praise the Lord! And—the blood type is a match for both organs. However, the hospital where Jacob is has rejected doing the surgery. They are willing to move him to another hospital, if Sarah does the legwork for the move.
1) We need to find a hospital willing to do the surgery
2) We need to move Jacob to that hospital safely
3) We need the antibodies for the liver to be a match (in addition to the blood) so his body does not reject the organ
4) His heart and lungs need to be strong enough to do the surgery
5) We need cooperation from the current hospital staff and future hospital staff—that the Lord would make them willing to listen and willing to help save Jacob’s life
PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS PROVISION! Guys—we need you on your knees right now. Decisions are being made at this second! Share this post! Gather your prayer warriors! This is a time sensitive situation! I will post more details as we get them.
OUR GOD IS FAITHFUL! “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20.” PRAY! When we knock, HE ANSWERS!

From Sarah.

Jacob is responsive at this time. Able to nod yes and no to commands.

She sat down with the medical team today and they said his liver and kidneys are not functioning at this time.
They have a surgery scheduled in the morning to see if his bowel is still functioning. They had to cut the blood supply down to part of the bowel to stop the bleeding yesterday. If his bowel is not functioning they will do a colectomy which is removing the dead bowel and connecting it to living bowel.

If his bowel is Living they will begin nutrition to his stomach through a feeding tube

He is in stage 4 cirrhosis and the Doctor has stated that his liver isn’t functioning at all.

The bleeding from yesterday appears to have stopped as old blood is all that is seen in the drain.

According to the doctors, blood products are the only thing keeping him alive as he cannot make any clotting factors himself. Liver function is essential for clotting factor production.

He also is a DNR so if his heart stops in surgery tomorrow they will not try and revive him. At this course and with his symptomology, I agree with this choice by the family.

Sarah wants us to pray against the spirit of death as the team caring for him are all non Christians and are giving no hope.

His surgery is at 7:30 AM Mountain time tomorrow.
We all need to be in continued prayer for a complete healing. This is the time hit our knees and stay up through the night warring of need be.

WE HAVE SURPASSED OUR INITIAL GOAL! What a blessing you have all been! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart as I know this means so much to both Jacob and Sarah.

You have blessed the Adamo family in such a huge way! That being said, there is a great deal of uncertainty with Jacob's health and there is no end in sight at this very moment. We know that the bills will be immense and we know that the Adamo family's needs will be great. So I am raising the goal to $5,000.

Please help me storm heaven's gates with prayers for Jacob, Sarah, their children and the hands of each doctor that works with Jacob.

Jacob update. He has been intubated and put to sleep because at 10:50 MT he was taken to Radiology for an angiogram to stop the bleeding caused by a parasentisis (attempt to remove the fluid from abdomen and they hit a vein or artery). They still do not know what is causing the liver and kidney failure. Once he is back to homeostasis they want to do a liver biopsy. There are mentions of Wilson's Disease (go figure Wilson ;) ).
So I am blessed to be sitting in the waiting room with Thea Adamo, Jennie Radhakrishnan, Kristen Bellinger, Josh and Shaina Lock.
I cannot even begin to say thank you to all of you that have prayed for us, donated, hugged, called, messaged. I am so blessed with an amazing Young Living and Church family.
Please continue to speak life over this situation! I need it and Jacob needs it.
