Stop What You're Doing and Pray...


I got a voice mail from Ness and things are still not good. Ness sounds like she is exhausted and my heart breaks that she has to watch her child go through this. Kierney apparently collapsed on her way to the bathroom. She has now been sent for an MRI and an MRA - doc said depending on what the tests show, she may have to be transferred to a hospital that has a more adequate neuro department. They are still leaning toward viral meningitis and are looking for the tests to tell them as much info as possible re: swelling in the brain.

Please, please, please kick the prayers into high gear for this family.

Will continue to update as I get more information.
Hallie here from WWoW filling in for Ness. I received email from her very early this morning. Things do not look good for Kiereney. She is still in the hospital where tests are being done to potentially confirm a diagnosis of viral meningitis. Kiereney is severely dehydrated so it took 4 lumbar punctures just to find spinal fluid to test. Ness is staying at the hospital.

I beg you all to send prayers Kiereney's way and to keep the entire family in your thoughts. Ness is the first to step up to the plate when any of us need a loving embrace (even just via the blog). Now it's time for us to repay the favor.

I will update throughout the day as I receive more information. For now, please leave Ness a comment letting her know that the blogging community is bombarding Kiereney with positive thoughts and prayers. I know from personal experience that your comments really do help.

Keep praying.

Ness, if you need anything, please call/text/email. You know I'm here for you. John asked me to let you know that he will spend his time at home sending healing thoughts to Kiereney as well.

Hang in there my friend.

Nessa, I'll just keep right on praying for Kiereney, and also for strength for you--although I think you have so much of that naturally.

Hallisicle, thanks for the update. If there is anything I can do for you, Ness, or anybody just text, call, whatever. Ready, willing and able!

Plus, I'm still praying for John as he prays for Ness--cause Ness would want us to :)!

Oh Nessie,

I am so sorry that Kiereney is going through so much. I will be sending my strongest thoughts and prayers out for her!

Hallie, thanks so much for updating us. You are a sweetheart. Ness, I am here if you need me. Just send an email my way. I pray that the doctors find out what the heck is going on and fix it SOON.

Big healing hugs,

Ness: What a difficult couple of days you're all having. I can't imagine the worry that you're feeling, but I sure know the kinds of prayers you're wanting right now. I will pray for peace, for courage, for relief of pain, for the kind hands taking care of Kiereney and for her restoration to health. Lots of love from Maumee, "Ro"

I read your blog often, but never have commented. I wanted to know that I am sending my prayers your way.

My internet has been down at home, so I haven't been able to check in until now.

Ness, many, many prayers. Not just from me, but from all my prayer warrior friends too. We are holding you all up in prayer and close in heart.

Hallie - Please let us know if there is anything besides prayer we can do for Ness. I want to help in any way possible.

I just heard about this. Ness, I know you don't know me but I just wanted to say my prayers are with you and your daughter. I'll keep praying for good news.
