Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Day +105

Alivia will get pherisis AGAIN today. Her IGM more than doubled since yesterday. She only slept about 2 hours last night due to belly pain and gas. It was so hard to watch. If she continues we will have a CT on monday to rule out a hematoma in her intestines from the endoscopy. During the anesthesia they will also pull her pherisis cathedar. It can only be in a week and Alivia's has been in for almost 2. Then she will have another one placed in the other leg.

She has been puking and going to the bathroom over and over. It seemes as if we take one small step forward only to come falling backwards. I'm tired, Livi is tired, James is tired (and sick at home this weekened). We could use some good news, some relief.

Can't conceive what you guys are going through. We will keep praying...

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. Isaiah 43:2

O Lord Jesus, You have promised never to leave or forsake us. I pray that this flood of suffering would not overwhelm Alivia, James and Emily and their families. Lord, thank you that you are with them. Please fill them with tangible strength, hope, joy and a sense of your love. Please have mercy on Alivia and heal her from head to toe. Thank you Lord Jesus.

Praying for complete healing for little Alivia - that the Lord will bring immediate relief from the belly cramps and uncomfortableness and a total healing of her little body! Praying for peace for Emily and James, that the doctors are doing everything they can for sweet Alivia; strength for you all as you sit in that hospital day and night; and an end in sight that will get you all home where you belong. Praying that James is feeling better soon so he can be with his family. Praising God for all he has seen you through and will continue to see you through.

Big Daddy Weave - Every Time I Breathe Lyrics

I am sure all of heaven's heard me cry
As I tell You all the reasons why
This life is just too hard

But day by day
Without fail
I'm finding everything I need
And everything that You are
To me

Chorus:
Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never want to leave
I want to stay in Your warm embrace
Oh basking in the glory shining from Your face
And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart
I realize it's true
That You are so marvelous God
And I am so in love with You


Thought of you last night when I saw the music video for this song. God is there. He is listening. It's so hard to see sometimes. Continuing to pray for little Alivia. Praying that God will heal her comepletely, soon, and in the meantime, continue to use your testimony. Praying also for James to get better quickly. I can't imagine how hard it is. Prayiing for little steps forward and no steps backward. Keep trusting Him. - Sue F.

As I read your blogs I feel so selfish to think my life is complicated. I have no idea how you are doing this! I'm so frustrated for you and would give anything to make this go away. But, I know thats not possible so...I'm praying baby.

I know why I always write ... Praying for complete healing and wholeness for Livi ... because I can hardly even begin to imagine what I could possibly say that would even begin to help or minister in the smallest way. And then, I always come back to the bottom line ... God loves her and He is faithful. I can't even begin to understand this kind of suffering, but I know that He LOVES her and He is faithful. And, I stop there. And pray that Jesus would completely heal her. And, that is where I am again tonight. Praying for Jesus to completely heal Livi and get her home tomorrow! Love in Christ, janet s.

Oh Emily, I am truely at loss for words except to say the prayers continue unceasingly. You know my heart aches for the pain Livi is experiencing and yours seeing your precious little one hurting. I have been thinking a lot lately about the surgeries and hospital stays I had as a child. I can honestly say that those experiences left very little imprint on my memory. I remember recovery at home and pain leading up to each surgery and hospital stay but the actual being in the hospital is not in my memory bank. It's just not there. It may be so for Livi when she is home again and has all good new memories of childhood taking over. t That will be one of God's special mercies. Love to all, Marmie P.S. Love Livi's puffed sticker art work. I am displaying it prominently where I can see it all the time.

Visiting here day by day. Nothing else to do but pray. What can I do or say? To comfort you from so far away. I have to count on Him to stay by Livi's side, every moment come what may.

I hope you know there are so many people out here who are praying and holding you in their hearts and yet who have no idea of what to say that would be the "right thing" - I am definitely one of them. I can't pretend to make sense of what you are all experiencing. Just want you to know that we wish you were not having to go through this and we pray for healing and peace for all of you. Praying for your strength and for refreshment from this aching weariness. God bless you -

Oh, Emily!
You are SO brave! To say that you are "tired" has got to be the understatement of the century!
Like so many others, I'm at a loss for words but full of emotions and perservering prayer that you are granted a MIRACLE!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Please grant refreshment to Emily, James and their families. Please make Your strength known to them. Give them wisdom, comfort and focus for this trial. Please heal Your little lamb, Alivia. We know that You hear our prayers, Lord. Please move in a mighty way, we ask in Jesus' name.

Still praying!

At times I am tempted to feel scripture is not helpful in facing the quicksand of this terrible disease. At times I am even tempted to charge the Lord God Almighty, but He died for all my sins...even those! And His word says: "For I AM the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to ME, 'DO NOT FEAR; I WILL HELP YOU." iSAIAH 41.13 AMEN AMEN AMEN Lord grant us that promise in the face of this trial.
