The Enemy is at the Gate!

UPDATE****Little Ethan has taken another bad turn. This time it's an infection which is EXTREMELY dangerous to a leukemia patient. AND Barb's sweet grandbaby, Cameron, was taken to the hospital with a severe onset of juvenile diabetes. He has since been stablized, but is now beginning a long road of daily testing, medications etc. Cameron, his mom and dad, and Barb and Rob could all use our prayers as they embark on this journey together. And pray especially for Cameron's dad as he has the same condition and therefore is feeling as though he gave this to his son...a completely unfounded guilt which I struggle with as well as I watch my boy show signs that he too may be developing the same kidney disease that I have.

And again, I will be leaving this post up as a sticky post for awhile so that the reminder to pray is front and center at least until the immediate dangers are past.

Ya'll Satan is trying to attack today. First Baby Ethan suffered a relapse of his leukemia. (See previous post for details.) And now sweet Kelli has received some really hard news about her kidney transplant possibilities. I'm in tears as I type over both of these set-backs. Please, please join me on your knees before the only One who can save and heal both Ethan and Kelli. Please.

I am just heartbroken and will certainly pray for both of these...That has got to be the sweetest faced baby. It is so unimaginable to think his little body has had to suffer..

Praying now..

Hi Melody. I have to say, it makes me a little sad that my grandbaby qualifies to be on a list of people who need prayer like Ethan and Kelli. Sad. But we know that if we can just get him stable, we can deal with this. Andy is more difficult. It hurts to see the pain in his face. I so hope your son escapes your kidney disease but if he doesn't, I feel certain you're up to the task.

On a different note, the little flower cookies are adorable. I'm so excited about having learned how to make painted cookies. I'm just itching for an excuse to make some more. I'll have to hide them from Cameron though. And that's sad.

Thank you so much for these kind words. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.
