I come to you this afternoon with a very heavy heart as I have just learned that a friend of mine is in desperate need of your prayers!!
About a year or so ago, I got an email from an on-line follower who lived near me in Appleton. Her name is Margie. We began emailing back and forth, getting to know a little bit about each other, and last June when I had my big garage sale, Margie drove out to our saltbox and we finally got to meet each other in person...she is a wonderfully delightful person, very nice and friendly!!
This morning I got an email from her and her words literally broke my heart!!
Here is a paragraph that I copied and pasted from that email, and the reason I am asking you ALL to PLEASE pray for little Kristin, Margie's daughter...
Just an update for you, last month we found out that unfortunately my 12 year old daughter Kristin has an aggressive growing cancerous tumor in her head. We are actually admitted to the Children's Hospital in Madison right now - for about the 5th time since we found out. She's been undergoing chemotherapy every Friday for the past few weeks and daily radiation for about another 5 weeks. She just had surgery this afternoon to put a gastronomy feeding tube into her stomach so that I will be able to give her extra nutrition since she's had such bad mouth sores due to the treatments that she can't eat, drink or talk. It's being done through an IV currently. The main priority right now is to get her pain under control as she has been on a morphine drip to try and help her cope. The good news is that they were able to do that surgery g-tube today and not next Monday as the sooner we get some nutrition in her and control her pain the sooner she'll start feeling a little better.
***Wishing you all the best Kristin! We are all praying for a speedy and full recovery...sending great BIG healing hugs your way...our thoughts and prayers are with you!! :) :) :) ***
Thank you in advance to all of my friends...I appreciate this very much!!
