Tonight

Tonight, my four year old daughter is tucked safely in her bed.  She is happy and healthy.

Tonight, my four month old “niece” is in the pediatric ICU.  She stopped breathing on Tuesday and has been having seizures on and off since they revived her.

Tonight I cried for the many, many blessings that God has bestowed on me.  Blessings that sometimes I am too “busy” to stop and acknowledge.

Tonight I pray without ceasing.  I pray that Baby K makes a full recovery.  That her doctors will figure out what’s going on inside her tiny body and attack that which is attacking her.  I pray for strength for her parents, her grandparents and her family who loves her dearly. 

Tonight, I kissed my daughter a few “extra” times before I turned off the light in her room.  I laid down in the bed with her for a few minutes and held her tight.  I realized, not for the first time, what precious gifts health and life are.

Tonight I’m asking for your prayers for Baby K and her family. 

The effectual fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much. James 5:16

  1. Thanks so much y’all. So far, the news has been positive. She hasn’t seized again. Her MRI came back clean which is great news. Still waiting on results from her spinal tap. They’re slowly weaning her off the anesthesia so she’s waking up a bit. I’ll keep you posted. Have a great weekend!
