MRI and Breathing Update

From Michelle:

I posted a longer update below but I have a few things to add. Abby's breathing problems have returned. Last night after I hit publish, Abby went to sleep and started having trouble breathing again.I don't cry out of frustration often but last night tears flowed.

I just walked Abby back to the surgery suite, sat her on a gurney and watched the anesthesiologist place a mask over her mouths. Abby loved her doctor, the gas smelled like yummy strawberries and made her giggle. I love that I was with her until she went to sleep but it was hard listening to her snore and retract (sleep apnea) once the gas put her to sleep. At least a doctor saw it happen.

I would appreciate your prayers for Abby during her MRI. Thank you for continuing to pray!

Your Abby is in our prayers Michelle!
As are both you and Brent.

My heart just hurts for you all. We will be keeping Abby in our prayers contantly, as we have been. Our kids ask all the time, how is everything going with Abby? You will always have prayers for Abby and your entire family. Specifically, right now, for the MRI and results....not forgetting to pray for her birthday.

Oh Michelle,

I wish I could be there to give you a hug. I'm so sorry you are just not getting any breaks with Abby's health. I know you are strong, and have the Lord to rely on, but sometimes this is just so, so hard.

Just remember, the sedation ALWAYS makes the breathing problem worse, and sleeping is the next worst. I am PRAYING for good MRI results, and for a break for dear little Abby. And you.

U r unbelievably strong parents, even in the midst of tears and continually bless countless people the world over with your transparency and honest testimony, that allows people to see what true dependence upon God, not man, really looks like. Thank-you for loving your children well, for sharing their good and bad with us, and for allowing us the privelege of walking alongside you, even tho' we have never met face-to-face, knowing we are brothers and sisters through Jesus--we ARE family, and one day we will all live perfectly together for ever and ever! AMEN! Praying for precious Abby to be released from all that binds her physical body, that she may enjoy not just a birthday party with friends but days, weeks, months and years with normal sleeping, no headaches, and free from hospitals! She is mature and wise beyond her years, and blesses the socks off us all.

Praying for you often, and loving you with the love of Savior, Jesus Christ.

Praying the MRI doesn't show bone death... praying her sleep apnea will be healed... praying SHE will be healed, fully and completely, from all of these annoying and painful symptoms now, and ultimately from the leukemia that made the chemo necessary in the first place. It is so unfair that the very thing which fights the leukemia, creates so much suffering. ((( hugs )))

You've been on my mind today, so I thought I'd pop over here to see what's up. So very sorry to read about the continuous head/leg pain and breathing difficulties. How incredibly frustrating for you and for Abby! :( You all must be incredibly exhausted, both physically and emotionally. Praying for a speedy resolution to the latest challenges and for a sense of comfort, peace, and renewed hope.

Still here and still praying for sweet Abby girl.
I was sad with you to hear that the headaches and breathing problems have returned.
Praying for answers and especially praying that she would be able to have a pain free amazing, over the top fun birthday party with all her favorite people.
Praying grace and strength over you, Michelle as you walk through these hard things with your precious daughter.
Love and hugs and prayers,

I'm so sorry that Abby and your family are having to experience so many "trials". I pray for strengh for all of you, as I know it gets to be a heavy burden sometimes. God bless, Kathy (Abby's pen pal from GA)

I don't know if at a time like this another Bible verse will seem somewhat shallow, like I don't know what to say, but I LOVE these two verses and thought that you might enjoy them as well: Romans 13:12 and Luke 1:37.

That is all.
Oh, and please give Abby a hug from me. Praying sooo hard!!
