Holmans Emergency Fund for Seth

$30,879 of $35,000 goal

Created June 26, 2018
Joe and Denise Holman, Seth Holman's parents have laid their son to rest.  His services held on July 3rd at 10am.  Please pray for the Holman family.  

We are raising money to assist with the costs for this Bolivian Missionary Family to travel back to the USA.  The doctors have told them to come quickly.

For all of you praying, thank you. 

Situation: Seth, 29, went to dr. yesterday afternoon because he had been sick a few days. Within hours his body was shutting down and he was in ICU on a ventilator. He went septic.

Bad News:
Docs don't know what caused the sepsis.
He is not in an induced coma, but a natural one. They think cardio-vascular shock has caused that.
They are trying to wake him up and have been unable to.
Machine is doing 100% of breathing right now.
His kidneys stopped working yesterday.
He flatlined twice, once for three minutes, the second time for five.
They think that he might have had a stroke as well. They want to do a brain scan and an MRI asap. He is on the way for the scan now.
All meds have been tried and docs are stumped.

Good News:
This morning he passed a little blood through his kidneys, indicating some kidney activity.
His blood pressure came up some.
Once when Ben yelled his name, his eyelids fluttered
We were able to get tickets on a flight to Miami tonight.

Best News:
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

The Holmans have flights from Bolivia to Miami on 5/26.  They will arrive early morning on 5/27.  The parents and 5 daughters are flying in.  They will then be transported from Miami to Tampa.  There are many, many logistics to care for this family.

From Denise Holman:
Middle of the night update: I was so blessed to be by Seth’s side today, to lay hands on him and pray over him. To tell him how much I love him. To tease him and try to provoke him. To laugh over stories of him. To cry many tears. To be surrounded by my ENTIRE family. To hug each one in person and tell them I love them. What a birthday! Truly a blessing. Thank you God for the gift of life. As for Seth, there is some good news. It’s slow, two steps forward and 1.75 steps back, but there has been POSITIVE progress. He had been completely weened off of his heart meds...all three of them...but several hours later went into A-fib again and had to go back on one, but ONLY one. He has been 100% dependent on the ventilator for his oxygen. Tonight they’ve steadily but slowly decreased that to 80% and his oxygen saturation has stayed in the mid to high 90s which is great! And the best of all....tonight when just Joe and I were with him the nurse shook him and yelled at him “SETH! Open your eyes! Your parents are here!!” AND HE DID!!! She turned to us and said, “See, he’s in there.” Thank you, God!!! Thank you all for praying! Seth is fighting. Keep it up, all of you. Pray specifically that they find the source of the infection.
