Prayers for Ana...

Ana is having a very bad week. She is impacted, again, and has had to undergo several enemas over the last two days. We have done 5 and have 4 more to do by Friday. We already see an improvement, but these types of enemas are very hard on her. Please say a special prayer for her today. Pray that the x-ray on Friday is clean!

God has given me strength I never thought possible. Ana is a very strong little girl... but I never have viewed myself as strong. I take each day as it comes, moment by moment. I try to never look at the big picture for fear that I will be discouraged. Only God knows what this disease is going to do to her poor little body before she breathes her last breath... only God knows what the future holds for Ana... I just rest knowing that He will carry us both through... that as soon as she moves in with Him she will be cured... she will be made whole in the blink of an eye... no tubes... no enemas... no pain... no surgeries... no medications... no I.V. polls... no backpack! With all that she has been through this week, the only thing she complained about was missing Kid's Life and missing horseback riding... Ana is just a child, created by God, and that is one thing mitochondrial disease can not take away!
