Update on Madison

Madison is doing well.  She may be released tomorrow.  They are waiting on her Coumadin levels to come back at the therapeutic levels in her blood.

I went yesterday to visit and it was great to see her and her Mom Jennifer.  It had been a couple years since I had seen them and Madison has grown quite a bit and is able to talk very clearly, both huge answers to prayer.

I helped Jennifer give Madison a shower and of course that helped Maddy feel a lot better.  Something she said after, though, just broke my heart.  She is trying to process all this, and the other hospital visits she's experienced in her young life.  She asked Mama, "Why God made me sick?"

Please continue to pray for Maddy and her family, as there will be other hospitalizations.  This is a way of life for her with the challenges she was born with.  Jennifer's prayer is that "she will accept her lot in life as given from a loving good God that sees and understands more than we. He has promised that all things work together for good for those that love The Lord. It is my prayer that she loves The Lord and is able to recognize the good he has for her even in the crummy circumstances of health. What an amazing life she will experience if she will cling to the God of that truth. It is truly her only hope, she will be miserable if she looks only to earthly comfort and chooses to become angry at what simply just is."

Thanks for praying for this sweet family!
