New Condition Developments

November 24, 2008

I'm sorry to report that there have been some changes in Danni's physical condition. She's become very vocal in the last couple of days groaning or talking constantly, sometimes very loud at times. We think that the tumors have invaded her language area.

She is also having trouble at times swallowing and this morning I noticed that she wasn't tracking with her eyes so I'm not sure if she can still see or not. It's hard for her to tell hot from cold and up from down.

Her condition seems to be rapidly deteriorating at some moments and then at others she's wide awake talking and joking and eating and swallowing just fine. I feel like we're on a roller coaster never knowing when we'll be jerked one way or the other.

She hasn't been pulling her oxygen out like she had been before so that's a blessing that we don't have to watch her like a hawk. Danni has also begun to refuse her meds at times. She understands what is going on so I've given her the independance she needs to decide for herself if she wants them.

It seems that it's very difficult most times to get her to wake up. I've been researching these things online and I feel we're getting near to the end. She's so fragile, it is the Lord who is sustaining her, but then again he has all along.

Please continue to agree with us for the Lord's will in this situation. I have no doubt in my mind that my God is able to heal but as his thoughts are higher than my thoughts and his ways higher than mine all I can do is agree with God that his will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I am submitted to God and Danni and I are at the foot of the cross sitting and waiting patiently for God to deliver her.

You have all ready recieved a miracle! Back on November 6th, the doctors told you that it was just a few days until Danni would leave, and here, almost 3 weeks later, and she is still here with us. Is God good? You Bet!! and seeing your child be filled with the Holy Spirit, and crying out to Him, that had to be so awesome! Danni is an amazing person, to be here with us, instead of letting go and giving up. It would be so easy to just give up and say that God isnt going to heal her here on earth. Danni is not giving up. She is clinging to Him, but staying with us. She is a miracle right now, with every breath, every second. I wouldnt want to see my child laying in pain in a hostpial bed, but to see Him coming through, words do no justice to explain what an experience that is.

I pray for you daily, even though I have no idea who you are. You and Danni and your family's faith has touched me, and created a stronger hunger in my spirit to be closer to Him, and to thirst for His Spirit to be ever presant in our lives. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I pray that God moves in an awe inspiring way today.

Christy, Matt, Danni & All:
Music has always been a ministry to my heart and I know it is close to yours too. Here is an old hymn that gives me hope and strength and I trust God will pass on that hope and strength to you all.
I am weak but Thou art strong,
Jesus, keep me from all wrong,
I'll be satisfied as long,
As I walk, let me walk, close to Thee
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus is my plea,
Daily, walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, Let it be.

Praise God for His grace and mercy and we thank you God for the miracle of Danni and her family here in our community. They all are such inspiration to all of us.
We continue to pray for God's will along with you. WE LOVE YOU, WE LOVE YOU, WE LOVE YOU !!
