We should all be so thankful for our health.
This little girl spent another night in the ER last night.
They put a feeding tube in her to
give her some nourishment but
her little body went in to shock from lack
of food and didn't accept it.
So now we are waiting on results
of the tests from last week and hoping for answers.
This has went on for 3 years but nothing like this.
This flair has been the worst.
She's lost over 30 pounds since Christmas night.
Hopefully they will find the right nutrition that she can take
or fix her so she can accept the food through the tube.
On a good note, I wanted to show you what
kind of person our granddaughter is.
When we moved here to the farm,
she was with me everyday along with
our other grands.
She loves all her cousins and she loves babies.
This is one of my favorite pictures of her
with her cousin Asher.
It was naptime. She rocked him on the swing to sleep.
She is so loving with them all.
When she laid him down for his nap,
you can't see it but she pulled a chair out there right next to him and sat next to him rocking him as he laid there.
She sat there for nearly 2 hours watching him.
I know everyone's grand's are special to them and
all mine are to me.
But I am giving you a little insight to our granddaughter
you are praying for.
She has a great big heart full of love.
She's always bubbly and smiling.
She's not smiling today.
Keep praying.
There's a miracle in the making for our baby girl.

Alyssa has been on my mind all day. I've been wondering if she was in the hospital or being treated as an out-patient. It's hard to understand why the medical people cannot find the cause and make a diagnosis then begin the appropriate treatment. Undoubtedly this is a terribly difficult situation for your entire family. I pray that she will be healed and return to health and remain so. I am glad you posted an update. Thank you. Sent with love. xo connie

I can't begin to imagine how hard this must be for all of you, Val. I so pray they come up with a diagnosis and treatment soon.

Friday night, when I was rejoicing for the good news in my family, sitting there, hands up high, praising God for His mercy and grace, as I was about to end my prayer of praise, Alyssa was strong on my mind and heart. My prayer changed from rejoicing to begging ... the happy tears that were on my face became tears of pain and pleading for healing for Alyssa. I know that I believe (have faith) that God can and does heal and work miracles every day, but sometimes it is so hard to just let God do things in his way and in his time. We want things to happen now, in our way, in our time, but that is not how it works. My sweet, precious Valerie ... please know that I am praying and believing that God will handle this ... I know that He is holding Alyssa in his hands, as well as the rest of your family. I love you dearly, and treasure your friendship, and have come to love your family as well, even those I haven't met, because they are a part of you. You are the real mother hen who keeps your family strings tight, and loving. I have no plans for next week except Wednesday (but that can change if i need it to) and Saturday. If there is ANYTHING I can do to help, please let me know! Becky
