Awake And Worried

Repairing Dog Toys

It’s the middle of the night. I’m awake. A nightlight casts a yellowish glow over the room. My mind can’t stop spinning.

I just got word that my niece is in the hospital. She’s only seven-years-old. I wonder if she’s scared? Is she in pain? Does she miss her favorite stuffed animal? I lie here unable to help; so I whisper prayers.

Her parents must be beside themselves. The doctors have done tests, blood work, and x-rays. They can’t figure out what’s wrong with her. I can’t imagine how her mom and dad are feeling. I wish I was there so I could hug my sister and hold her hand. I wish I could tell my niece stories and hold her hand.

This morning one test came back for strep, the other test results still haven’t come back. She will have an MRI later today. Please pray for my niece and the doctors treating her. Thank you.

  1. Rest assured her Leopard was with her at all times, from the moment she walked through the hospital doors, right along with her favorite blankie 🙂

  2. I am just catching up on email and posts since surgery. So sorry that your neice has not been well. Hope she is up and running by now ::)

  3. My niece is home from the hospital but is still sick. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. Thank you Fay for letting me know she had her Leopard and blankie. Thank you Kay for your concern.
