Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

URGENT PRAYER REQUESTS

I just spoke with Ginny's grandmother and she shared with me that Ginny is bleeding uncontrollably from every where. They are not giving the family any hope at this point I had no idea things had gotten this bad. Ginny had been Ash's neighbor across the hall for the last 2 months and she was moved to the other end last week. Ash loved to wave at her from our door way. They are having a meeting this afternoon at 3:00 to decide what to do. My heart is broken. I love this little girl. Her smile is contagious. I wish there was something, anything that I could do. Please, please pray for Ginny. She is now on the ventilator and is no longer waking up. I know she is a believer and more than anything I pray that God would give her comfort, give her peace, ease her pain. I can not bare the thought of her lying there frightened or scared. God, please hold her today. Please let her know how very much she is loved.


Dave just called me to request prayer for another one of Ashley's friends. Her name is Lexie and she lives in our home town of Longview. Ash and Lex are close friends. We love this little one so much and we ask you to please pray for her. They have found some type of cancer in one of her eyes and I know her parents and big brother must be frightened. They will travel to Dallas tomorrow to meet with some specialists and they will discuss treatment options. My heart is heavy just knowing that they will be facing this situation. Please pray for Charlie, Melissa, Austin, and Lexie. They are precious to us and I know they could use your support.

Thank you for your willingness to pray not only for our Ashley but for those who she loves. I appreciate each prayer you send on Ash's behalf and I know these families would treasure them also. I have come to depend so heavily on your support and I didn't know where else to turn. Thank you. Trish

I will continue to pray for you, Ash, Ginny, and Lexie. My son was 2 when we were dealing with retinoblastoma and he's 7 now. His eye was removed but he has the most beautiful prosthetic and lives a very normal,active boy's life. God is good all the time and we will pray for your strenght, courage and for peace of mind. You are an encouragement to me!!

Trish:
How amazing you are, to carry other's burdens when you are carrying your own and Ashley's so bravely. Of course I will pray for these precious children.
Praying for you that you will become discouraged during this time and that you will feel the prayers lifting you up.

We will pray. My heart goes out especially to Ginny. Mom described her to me so enthusiastically that I feel like I know her. She also said what a fantastic smile she has. I am so sad for her pain. Also you family friends in Longview. God must have put you in place just to be a rock for all these many people you know who have dealt with dramatic health issues this year. (I have thought a lot about Jordan's family) Hope you get some really great blessings to balance out the rest of the day.

I'm praying for Ginny and her family--and for you, constantly being in the midst of others' pain, too. I hope you and your sweet girl have a good night's sleep tonight:)
