Quick Update

I don't have long but I wanted to give a quick update on whats gone on today.  I will make it short and sweet.

Lucy has maintained a fever of at least 104 and often 104.5 for more than 18 hours.  She is basically in a state of delirium from the fever which has, thankfully, not allowed her to fully appreciate the pain she is in.  She is being treated with some big gun antibiotics for what we feel may be meningitis.  We have been taken aback by today's revelations, which now include potential meningitis, an emergency CT scan, and an emergency MRI.  She also had her g tube removed, her shunt tapped and will have to have her shunt removed and then probably replaced later this week (if we can wait that long.)

I don't want to sound overly dramatic, but things are not good here.  We truly covet your prayers and ask that you keep Lucy in your continued prayers.  She is very sick.  We have a long way to go towards recovery.  The road, as its been laid before us, is going to be long and possibly hard.  Erik and I are devastated and very scared.  I hurt for my other children and long to be a family again.

I will update as time allows.  I know my faith has been tested before, and I'm not sure I can sustain much more, by my only hope is in Christ.  I ask that you go before Him and beg for mercy for my precious child.

  4. Oh, Kate. I want so much for your sweet family to have just some normalcy and restoration. But I know God has a plan for Miss Lucy and through her He will do BIG things (and in fact He has already revealed so much of Himself through you guys already). Know that you've got prayers being lifted on your (and your family's) behalf and that, above all else, He is good.

  20. So desperately sorry that Lucy is having such an awful time of it. Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. My dad gave me this verse (Psalm 56v3) when my son had his heart surgery - I hope it helps you as much as it did me. "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."

  37. Praying for your family as you face this unexpected turn of events. We know our God is carefully watching Lucy and only He can change her temperature, pain and discomfort. We must pray without ceasing as we have been taught. Since I cannot hug your family, I can surely pray for God's love and peace to surround you and hold you through the days and nights ahead. We, as Christians, can call His name anytime, day or night. He wants us to call His name, and He will always answer. Thank you for the update. I will look forward to the next one as I pray for good news. Love to all, Pat Williams, a grandmother in Tuscaloosa

  42. My prayers are added for Lucy, I come from Child of Gods page. You probably know that Lucy means LIGHT.. a blessed name.
    As an retired emergency room sister I learned with temperatures the patient must be cooled from the INSIDE out... Which means not only Tylenol and antibiotics but cold drinks and ice blocks...cold things to cool the body inside. Even many hospitals don't do this.. I pray its not meningitis, if it is, she won't tolerate the light (photo-phobia) , and will need to be in a darkened room, Much love sent from Australia.

  125. I just came in from a revival service at our church in KY this evening and was checking for news of Lucy. I don't know Lucy or your family in person but I have come to love your sweet family through your blog. My prayers go up tonight for sweet Lucy and for God's healing touch on her body. Our revival services this week have been definite proof of God's answering of prayers and I and so many others are praying for healing for your Lucy. I also pray for you and your husband to give you added strength during this time.

  126. Praying for you and your family. Know that He is the resurrection and the life. He goes before us and He prays for us. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He healed in the past and He will heal tomorrow. I am believing for a quick healing with no damage. God Bless you.

  127. We all three (our family) prayed for all three of you just now. Know that God is doing a mighty work in your daughter's life. It is scary, but don't lose faith. God showed me before that when we are at our weakest, that is when He will make us our strongest. I was suppose to die last year. I was in the hospital for over 20 days. I've had 3 surgeries in five months. Through all that, God gave me the opportunity to share my faith with many people and to build their faith through their healing too. I will continue to pray.

  152. So much of this world makes little or no sense to me, but I know that our Lord knows exactly what is going on all the time, and He does what is best, always. So sorry your little Lucy is suffering and pray that she feels the Lord's comfort and love, and I'm hoping the Lord has a complete recovery in store for her, God's will be done. In all things, Romans 8:28 is always so reassuring. <3

  153. Kate, I would like to encourage you with a poem that I was inspired to write when I was going through a sickness trial. I believe the Lord was speaking to me through it and encouraging me to increase my faith in His ability to heal. It is called 'Who said?'

    Who said that I'll not heal you, who told you child this lie
    Who said that you will get much worse and points his finger to the curse?
    My child, it was not I
    Who speaks new precious words of life to all who live in fear and strife
    And says 'By faith shall live the just' if in their Lord they'll put their trust
    For through God's word has been revealed that by my stripes you shall be healed
    Who says 'Your needs I'll satisfy, my precious child 'Was it not I?'
    Beware the serpent oh so sly, to steal your blessing he will try
    My child it still remains your choice, the devil's hiss or the Master's voice
    For even in this latter day satan keeps asking 'Did God say?'
    Still questioning what you have heard, hoping you'll doubt God's Holy Word
    Don't listen child each time he tries to win you with his evil lies
    Tell him this time it's not the same, this time you wear your Saviour's name
    The name of Jesus Christ, God's Son. by whom redemption has been won
    And from the curse you've been reprieved if in my Word you have believed
    So stand within God's promise child, by the devil's lies be not beguiled
    And when he questions, as you're led, you say to him YES, GOD HAS SAID

    And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb...

  154. You and your family are in my daily prayers and have been since I came across your blog. Please remember this poem:

    Footprints in the Sand - Poem

    One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
    Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
    In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
    Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
    other times there were one set of footprints.

    This bothered me because I noticed
    that during the low periods of my life,
    when I was suffering from
    anguish, sorrow or defeat,
    I could see only one set of footprints.

    So I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord,
    that if I followed you,
    you would walk with me always.
    But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
    there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
    Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”

    The Lord replied,
    “The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
    is when I carried you.”

My thoughts are on Lucy quiet a bit through out my days and nights-- my heart screams in silence for this little girl and your family! I wish that there was something that I could say or do to ease yall's pain-if only for a second, but just know that Lucy has made a difference in my life in a great way. God Bless You All!
