Today I am at an almost total loss for words. I sat down with my coffee & went to a good friends Caring Bridge page so I could catch up on how they where doing in New York. They have been there receiving treatments for various very serious medical issues of their children. But Miss. Mary their daughter is seeming to take the lead on this trip. They have been several times for all of their issues which I won't go into detail for fearing of totally messing it up! How their mom Lisa keeps it all straight it beyond me?? She is definitely a Warrior Mom among all of us with our special needs angels. Here is a link to the Mayo Clinic so you can read up on just some of whats going on with all of the eight children, Chiari Malformation. Now throw in a little juvenile diabetes,rheumatoid arthritis, & now the latest Cancer.
God blessed us when we rented our home here in Washington ten years ago by placing the family right next door! God knew I was going to need another Warrior Mom to help learn what to do with my Jeremy & how to draw on God when things looked their bleakest. She is an amazing example of strength, courage, & devotion I could ever hope to be one day. Mary plays piano like nobody's business! She cooks, draws, acts, she serves. She has most definitely been called to serve even though she lives her daily life in pain that only few can imagine. She is Jeremy's most favorite girl in the world! He always asks about her & gives her big hugs when he see her. So I ask that you just cover this special lady in prayer as she leans on her mom & God with this latest diagnosis. We know God has a plan for Mary even if we can't see it clearly. Pray that her parents know how they can help & for continued strength. They hope to be home soon from New York so they can head to Seattle's Children's Hospital to see how best to attack this latest medical diagnosis. So please pray that their doctors that God has given them are healing, strong,& confident on how to continue.
We love you Mary & the whole family. We hope we can be of help as you have helped us so many times.
