“My help comes from the Lord who made Heaven and Earth. He will not let your foot be moved. He who keeps you will not slumber…” God is constantly working on her behalf.

IMG_4226 IMG_4230This is some of the team we met with this morning.  Thank you God we are in this place.

We still do not have definite answers

but the search is being narrowed. little by little

They have told us that they are not ruling out liver disease but there are some other real mysteries.

God knows what we don’t know and we trust Him.

He is taking great care of our Lainee.

I slept on and off, waking at 2 feeling panicky.  I had thought: She’s throwing up blood, she’s getting LOTs of blood drawn and for Lainee that’s a big deal because she does not make red blood cells that her body can use. She needs blood!  I found the nurse and told her I feared Lainee’s hemo. would be too low by morning. She said we would wait 6 hours and check again.  I was firm in believing it needed to be checked NOW.   It had dropped from 14 at our admission to cdh Saturday, to 9.9 when I asked for it to be checked, that was at 3:00am.  I told them I wanted her to be transfused, not waiting and they agreed.  God tells a mother’s heart.

Another doctor came to talk to us just now, he is a GI and will do a scope this afternoon after we make sure Lainee can handle it.  He will be specifically looking for an ulcer which would explain lainee’s bleeding.

Much happening.  She’s pretty cranky.  Please pray for answers.

Resting in God’s loving arms and very aware of his presence here with us.

Chris and I know that God has called us to walk with Lainee and we feel so honored to do so, truly a privilege.

Your comments and texts and emails are so encouraging to us, I treasure each one.

thank you for praying for us and the other at home.

I will be updating here as we learn more.

    “Chris and I know that God has called us to walk with Lainee and we feel so honored to do so, truly a privilege.” I love that you said this…I have told people this countless times about our daughter. It was a year ago that we were in the hospital for a major surgery, & a nurse of all people was like, “Did you KNOW she had this going on?”. I told her basically what you just said. To witness Kemeri’s emotional & physical healing has been an honor. I hope today brings more answers & comfort for your punkin. :o)

    We are praying for sweet Lainee- my kids love her! Jake prayed for healing and that “her parents would be calm”. Not sure where that came from- but he recognized that its hard for mom and dad to see their child hurting. We will continue to pray! With love from the Millets

    Not a dry eye in the Halkyard household after reading your updates. Strength is what you need from us and it sounds like you’re both holding it together more than us. We are so proud by how you are handling this ‘curve ball’ that The Lord has thrown you. We are VERY positive people and send ALL of our positive energy your way!!! Hang tough with God next to you. Karen, Matt, and Tommy

    Dear Jones Family,
    We are “approaching the throne of grace with confidence, so that you may receive mercy and find grace to help you in your time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). We are praying that you will be filled with the peace that only God can give. We are praying for the skill and wisdom of the medical team. We know how very much Jesus loves little children, and it is in His capable hands that we place Lainee.
    In His unfailing love,

    Oh dear friend, I am so sorry to read that your precious Lainee is in the hospital and not feeling well.
    God is so awesome- awakening you and giving you a Mommy message. So thankful you were able to get more blood for her.

    Praying, praying, praying for your precious Lainee…
