Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


A Hard Night

10:07 pm 7-30-2006

We are trying to get Ash down for the night. She has a chemical burn on her chest as a result of the trouble this morning. She is very uncomfortable and has spent most of the day fighting against her arm restraints trying to scratch the wound. Tonight we pray that she will be able to find some relief and be able to get some sleep.

I (David) have to fly home tomorrow and it is very difficult to know that I won't be here to help. I won't be here to sing to her her, hold her head and try to comfort her through the pain. I won't be here to help Trish as she struggles with all that is taking place. I really don't want to have to leave at this time. Lord, please be with Trish and my Gherkin as I have to go home. Please bring our family back together as soon as possible. Thank you for taking care of our Ash.

It breaks our hearts for you (David) not to be able to be there for Trish and Ashley. Is there a way we can help you stay, or get another family member there to help Trish? We feel like God is telling us to do this for your family so please let us know if there is something we can do. Our email is and our home number is 758-5037. We continue to lift you all up in prayer.
