Part 2 - Elizabeth needs prayers, calling on all prayer warriors again!
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. Jeremiah 17:7
PART 2 posted at 2:15 pm
Just got a call from hospital, they have been able to drain quite a bit of fluid off of Elizabeth's tummy, her breathing did improve with this procedure being done. However, there is some bleeding going on somewhere and they need for this to stop ASAP. Please be in prayer now for this bleeding to stop NOW. The family wants you all to know how much they appreciate your prayers and your love for them.
Keep praying.... Elizabeth is showing signs of improvement this morning. I know there are many MANY who are lifting her up in prayer and it is showing!! In the above photo taken a few months ago is from left to right; Dr. Sara, Michelle & Elizabeth and Regina (Mary Kate's mom) We are praying for Elizabeth to be well and everyone will be back in the "all smiles" mode again soon.
I hope each of you are enjoying your weekend. Take a few minutes and look around you, see the beauty in the day and say a prayer of praise and thanksgiving for all of the many things God has blessed us with. Look around and see if there is something you can do today to make someone else's day a littler brighter or their load a little lighter. It's amazing how good it can make you feel.
Ok, I know it is still just a little over 5 months away, but.... the marathon will be here before we know it. For those of you who have started following the kids on this blog since the beginning of the year, I want you to know that TEAM BELIEVE is a group of prayer warriors and support people from all over the states. The last time I made just a quick mental count I think I counted at least 9 states that are represented by TEAM BELIEVE. So what I am saying is this, if you are sitting in California or Ohio or even Anywhere, USA you can be a member of TEAM BELIEVE. It is so rewarding to participate in this, please go to the top left of this page and click on Video and check out the news story that one of the local stations did on our team last year. This will give you an idea of what we are all about. We formed and have participated the last two years under the name of Team Ethan, this year we have changed our name and made the decision to select a different child each year to run/walk in their honor or memory. Our new name is TEAM BELIEVE and this year we are so proud to be run/walking in memory of a precious girl named Mary Kate Rushing. You can click on the link to our team page right under the video link and read Mary Kate's story. We welcome you to join us and join in our efforts to help raise money for St Jude. This is our way of doing something to help these kids out. If you have any questions you are welcome to email me. We make this event a full weekend of fun! We have a team dinner on Friday night before the run and are joined by some of our families that we follow here on this blog. Join us, join in the blessing of meeting the kids and families of the ones we support. If you can't be a part of the team and make the trip to Memphis, please consider making donation to St Jude by donating to TEAM BELIEVE. Again, just click on the donate link and you can donate online. For your donation to count toward our goal of raising $20,000.00 for St Jude, the donation must be made through Team Believe. If you would prefer to mail a check, I will post an address later, and the check should be made out to St Jude. Thank you for your support of this WONDERFUL hospital and these AWESOME kids who fight this battle.
KEEP PRAYING..... BELIEVE PRAYER WORKS!!!!
