Prayer Request

I don't have the energy to get on here and share what has been happening here, because repeating it on here just seems to remind myself how frustrated and upset I am with the way things are going. We are still admitted in Columbus, this is the 5th day. Sometime soon, maybe tonight, I will fill you all in on what's been going on, but right now I just want to sleep all day. So in lieu of an update, I simply ask that you pray for us extra today. We really need it.

Please pray for Addison's continued beautiful spirit throughout this ordeal. God gave her this amazing ability to endure any hardship and trial with a smile on her face and it's what honestly keeps me going. If she can do it, I can do it.

Please pray for her growth, and that her little body will reveal the problem to us. Pray for the doctors around her, we expect so much of them and rely on them to do the right things for her.

Finally, pray for me - its very difficult to spend so much time alone in a hospital and in a city away from home. Its a struggle to be strong for her, stand up for her, and most of all its hard to choke back anger because we cannot control what is happening to her. I'm having a harder time than usual today. I saw Adam and the girls yesterday for a couple of hours and saying goodbye again left me emotional and heartbroken.

So any extra prayers you could send up, are very much appreciated.... as I know they are being heard by our awesome and mighty God.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."


  1. Praying Kim. Thank you for sharing the realness of your trial and opening your heart to us with your requests so that we can more completely and fully lift you up. Praying for strength and peace that pass understanding and continuing to pray for healing.

    Matt 6 comes to mind, if He cares for the birds and animals, how much more He cares for sweet Addison. Do not worry, for she is in His hands, you are in His hands. Keep trusting, keep believing and wait in earnest for His answers.

    Love in Christ,
    a friend of a friend

  2. I am praying for you all.

  3. I follow your blog religiously and I do pray for you, Addison and your entire family. Her smile and brave little spirit are inspirational. I can't begin to imagine your frustration and anger, but I am so impressed with your ability to stay strong, knowing that Addison needs her mommy to remain positive next to her, smiling back at her precious smiles, advocating for her best care. She was placed in your care for a reason, and you are certainly rising to the occasion. What a gift she is.

  4. Wondering how things are going. Still praying.
