Life has so many twists and turns. It can be like a roller coaster with "ups" that lift our spirits, make us joyful, & remind us of the blessings that life can bring; but also with "downs" which bring us to our knees and make us question “why”. Last week was one of those “downs”.
We have lived across the street from very good friends for MANY years; our children grew up together; we went on family vacations together for years. On Friday these friends’ 7-month-old granddaughter ASHLYNN was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Ashlynn’s sweet daddy and uncle were both former second-grade students of mine. These young men are like part of my family. My heart aches for all of them.
From what I understand at this point, the tumor is where the optic nerves cross. A biopsy has been done and we are awaiting results. The dr. “thinks” it may be a cancer that can be treated with medication and chemo; that would be the best scenario. Whatever the results, little Ashlynn and her family have a long road ahead of them. Therefore, I am asking anyone who reads this and believes in prayer to PLEASE pray. Miracles happen everyday and this child needs a miracle. I know her parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends will appreciate each and every prayer. PLEASE PRAY.
