"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be." - Shel Silverstein

More Prayer Requests and Updates

Please keep my friends Hope and Ava in your prayers this whole week.  They are at Cincinnati Children's hospital this week so Ava can undergo multiple tests and procedures to determine what is going on with her medically and what approach they should use in treating her. She will be going under anesthesia several times and will even be intubated once, which is a very scary thing for a kiddo like her who has airway problems already. She is in some of the best hands in the country for what she is going through, so that is a big blessing. Please pray that Ava makes it through all these procedures with no complications and the team of doctors can come up with a workable plan to address her medical issues.

Emerson is not doing very well.  She is sick with something the doctors can't put their fingers on, and she is getting worse.  Please keep this sweet angel in your prayers, as well as her loving mom and the rest of her wonderful family.

Kayleigh's brain swelling seems to have stabalized.  Please pray that she stabilizes enough that her family can bring her home to live out her remaining days.  She has never known anything but the hospital.  

On a wonderful note, Stellan was released from the hospital in Boston a week ago and is now back home with his family.  The doctors found a medication that seems to be working to keep his SVT under control.  He will need another ablation on his heart and possibly a pace maker, but his doctors are hoping this new medication continues to work until he is much older and big enough to endure another surgery.

Our prayers continue for Stellan, Emerson, and Kayleigh, and now extend to include Hope and little Ava. Each one of these little precious spirits are in God's loving, caring hands and I will pray for a healing for each one. Each parent is also in God's loving care and I pray that God will give them the strength to endure whatever they have to face. Love to all...Nana & PaPa
