Well, friends....I'm honestly so in shock that I hardly know what to say. But I need your prayers so I'm going to tell everyone that I know will pray and then they can tell everyone they know so we'll have a wall of prayer going up to heaven.
Today we took my baby girl, Kari, to the emergency room because she was screaming with severe stomach pain and running a fever. The doctors there were disturbed with the blood count results and sent us on to the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital.
I'm going to make a long story short...after the tests here, Kari needs blood and platelets tonight and they are doing a bone marrow biopsy in the morning. They are suspecting leukemia and if not that, they said it will be something just as life threatening as leukemia.
I'm not going to pretend I'm all comforted and peaceful and all that. I'll be honest and say that I'm scared, sick, nervous and filled with dread.
Please pray for my little girl that God would protect her and shield her. I can't even describe all the feelings that I have right now. It's like my worse nightmare come true. Sitting here watching Kari sleep....it's like all I can think of is the pain she's in and how I want it to go away. I know God is able to give us a miracle. But I also know that sometimes He chooses not to and I'm struggling with that right now.
I know I'm being very honest right now but I'm scared and right now this is an outlet for me.
One thing that DOES comfort me is knowing that God will NEVER leave us. No matter what happens He will be here. My dear friend, Tonya, came to the hospital with us and she was a such a comfort when we got the news from the doctor. Knowing what she's been through....she was able to look me in the eye and say "God WILL help you. You may think you can't get through it but He WILL be there."
This song is hitting home for me right now. Along with this one.
Please pray for us.
