Showing up for this life God has given me and thanking him for all his grace
Tuesday, February 9, 2010
This sweet girl is heavy on my heart today. Ashley had to have emergency surgery yesterday. Actually twice. She spiked a terrible fever over the weekend and they took her to the ER. She has a staph infection at your port iv site. Last night they went 3 inches deep to try and remove as much as they could. She is in recovery and will be in the hospital for awhile and then home for a long healing process. They do have to stop chemo for now. I know I ask a lot but please pray for this sweet young woman. She had just lost her hair and was having a terrible time emotionally. I know from several people attitude is a key part to beating cancer. I couldn't sleep last night just thinking about her and all the emotions she must be feeling. When I saw her a few weeks ago we talked a lot about how she was more than her hair and so what if she is gaining weight. She is so much more than all of that. I thought about beauty, true beauty. Not store bought, accessorized, commercialized beauty. I pray that Ashley knows how beautiful God has made her to be. Please pray for her sweet spirit not be be broken .
Thank you all so much and I promise to have something fun to share this week!!
