This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

A Midnight Trip To The Hospital

Well, we put it off long enough.  Another phone call to the doctor and the 11:00pm news just started as mommy and Rebekah drove off to the hospital.  At this time of night they should make it there around midnight.  Rebekah’s fever has continued to rise and she has continued to throw up.  This is just not a change in her immune system – something is actually going on.  She will go into the Emergency Department (Emanuel has a special Pediatric Emergency Department).  Upon arrival she will get blood tests and a general broad spectrum antibiotic.  Depending on the result of the blood tests she may get more antibiotics, be admitted or be sent home only to come back tomorrow (today?) for more antibiotics.  This is the not so fun part.

Sarah and daddy are staying home and Grandma A will hopefully be able to come out in the morning so daddy can get to court for clients finalizing their adoption tomorrow.  If Grandma A can’t make it and mommy and Rebekah are not home we may have to try and get a car seat into daddy’s truck and Sarah may get to go to court!  

Keep your prayers open for us please.

Praying for you all now and always. Lord help sweet Rebekah to be freed from her illiness. Help to restore her body to good health so that she can be the care free child that she deserves to be. Help her parents to make the decisions that you want them to. In your name I pray, Amen.
