The Solid Rock.... Update on Sunday

Sunday afternoon Update....

Need urgent prayers for two of our kiddo's. Elizabeth was taken off of the vent yesterday morning around 9:30, they anticipated for her to wake up within the first hour. As of this writing (2:24pm) she has still not awaken. She also has some involuntary movements going on. Her heart rate, temp and blood pressure are all not very stable. The family ask for your prayers to plead for God's healing hand to be on Elizabeth. Michelle's specific request is to just pray for Elizabeth's total healing here on this earth. The family's faith is the most amazing faith and trust that I have witnessed in awhile. Michelle keeps reminding everyone that none of Elizabeth's problems right now are to big for God. She is 100% correct and I thank her for her unending faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Please pray for strength for DJ, Michelle, Charlie, Andrew, the grandparents and all of their family. They need God's strength and comfort right now. Dear Lord, wrap your loving, protecting, healing arms around this precious family. We pray for You to heal Elizabeth, give her complete and total healing here on this earth Lord, if it be Your will. In Christ Name, Amen.

Salena was moved to ICU yesterday. She has had a problem with some infection in her Thyroid gland and they will do a procedure tomorrow to drain the infection out of her thyroid. She has had some scans done that have shown some spots on her lungs. They did a biopsy of these spots, but have not yet heard back from them. They are treating it as a fungal infection for now. She has been having some breathing issues that they seem to feel is connected to the possible infection in her lungs. Please pray for her to be able to get all of this cleared up. She is so ready to go home.

Reagan had the best Christmas any little girl could imagine. I'll share more on this with you soon. I promise it will bring tears to your eyes and faith to your heart in our fellow neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ. Have your tissue box close by when I make that post......COMING SOON!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS REAGAN :)

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

A mom posted the words to this hymn recently, the more I have thought about these words and these families, I felt it was so appropriate to describe what they must feel when holding firm in God's hand. I have sang this song thousands of times over the years while sitting in worship service, but never thought about the application of the words like I have thought about them recently. "Support me in the whelming flood; When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay." What comfort, when the bad news keeps creeping back into the lives of these sweet children and their families.

This past week has been been very challenging for many of the families. So many of them have suffered news that they had hoped they would never hear AGAIN. I pray for these families, I pray their hearts will be comforted and their faith will be strong Another hymn that comes to my mind at this time, is LEANING ON THE EVERLASTING ARMS OF GOD. What better place can any of us be than leaning on God? Please be of encouragement in whatever way you can to our families. They need love, support and just your words on their guestbooks gives so much hope and comfort to them.

I will try to give a quick overview, but please go to their pages. Leave them a message.

Clay, sweet precious Clay, has had a relapse. He had done so well with transplant and was packing to go home, on his day +100 BMA and other test, it came back showing his cancer has returned. Specific prayer - pray for the doctors to get him back into remission.

Mallerie has had a very rough week. She is back inpatient again and having stomach issues. She is just feeling miserable and is so ready to just be out of the hospital. Please pray they will soon find what is causing her stomach problems and be able to get her "fixed up". Also, she still needs prayers for her lungs. Specific prayer - pray for her lungs to heal and stomach problems to be resolved.

Alex D, he has also had a relapse. Again, specific prayer request is for him to be in remission again and healed from his cancer forever.

Dax, yet another relapse... please pray for for him to also have complete healing from his cancer.

Ellzabeth, remains in ICU and on the vent. There was some talk last night about trying to get her off the vent as early as today. Bless her sweet heart, she is such a fighter and she is fighting so hard. She still has some bleeding issues and now after doing a MRI recently, they have found some things going on in her brain to cause some concern. They are awaiting more news from these test. Specific prayer - pray for the bleeding to stop, pray for the new medicine to work on the PTLD and not cause other side effects that are so dangerous to her. Pray for her liver and kidneys to heal.

Salena, she is back inpatient. She has had a very tough week too. She was on the downhill side of her hospital stay and ready to go home in a few weeks. However, she has had an infection in her thyroid gland and now after doing some scans to check that out, they have found some places on her lungs. They did a biopsy of these spots yesterday and they are now waiting for these results to know what they are dealing with. Specific prayer - pray for her infection to clear, pray that the places on her lungs will be something they can identify easily and get the right medicine to wipe it out.

Alex V, has been back to St Jude this week for some testing. She has been having some problems with pain, walking and some other issues that they have brought her back to do MRI and scans to see what is going on. I do not know the outcome yet of these test. Specific prayer - that they can identify the problem and that it will not be anything that can't be handled quickly and easily.

Reagan, I hope you have been following her this week. It has certainly been an exciting week in the Fort Worth area. Christmas in July!!! Santa comes tonight ! There are so many things that are happening this weekend, it is totally unreal. I am so impressed with this town and all of the neighborhood association people involved. I can't give away any secrets, it is Christmas you know, but keep a close eye on her site and see all of the wonderful things that are happening for this precious little girl and her family. It will make you so proud to know there are still people in this world with the most amazing hearts. What a lucky little girl Reagan is to have her family and friends. Specific prayer - pray for her miracle! Pray for her to have good days and to feel good.

Trevor V, he is home this weekend, the plan is to come back on Monday and to complete the packing and the move HOME. He looks great, he is feeling good and is just ready to get back home with is buds and enjoy normal life. Specific prayer - pray that everything goes just as planned and that Trevor is healed from his cancer forever and ever AMEM! Congratulations to Trevor and Pam for successful treatment and going home to be with their family.

Please remember Christian and keep praying for her miracle.

Keep praying for all of the kids who are fighting this nasty battle. Pray for their families. These families love their children so much and they hurt and are in such great pain watching what these children go through. Specific prayer- pray that God will hold them all close to him and give them the peace and comfort they need to get through each day. Lord, I pray that each family is standing on the SOLID ROCK!
