Your Prayers are So Appreciated...

God's grace is too big, too great to fully understand.  So, we must take the moments of His grace throughout the day with us..
Like, the music of the songbird in the mornings, or like the kindness shown in the afternoons... and we cannot forget the restful sleep at night.....

We are so thankful for those of you that have so diligently been praying for baby Zoey....she has gone through several rough days of intense testing, but the doctor's feel that they are now on the right track....

Zoey is being treated for "OMS Syndrome."  Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome.  This is a rare neurological disorder and it is characterized by rythmic, involuntary motion of the limbs during voluntary movements.

Myoclonus is brief shock like spasms, and,  Opsoclonus is rapid horizontal eye movements, also know as "Dancing Eyes."

Sam (Zoey's Mom) sent a message yesterday, saying that there has been some signs of improvement, and for this, we are so very thankful....

Zoey will be hospitalized about four or five more weeks, and will then receive treatments for about a year after that....She is scheduled to have a biopsy for a small mass on her liver, tomorrow....so, Please continue to be in prayer for this sweet angel....

I am so glad that I sat down for a minute to rest and read. Your blog was the first one to come up.

I will praise God and thank Him for the answer. I try never to neglect to thank him for the gift of intellect that he gives those in the healing profession.

AND now, I will pray very specifically for her treatment and for that biopsy.

I'm also moved to uplift her family, especially her mommy, for the next five weeks.

What a lot to handle for such a little baby, and I can only imagine what her parents are going through. I think we're prone to take 'peace' for granted, but God shows up most when things are rough, as they are now for this family. She will be prayed for and I know you'll keep us informed.

Must be the hardest thing for us humans to go through is when our little ones are sick or in pain or something's not right. I'm lifting this little family up to Him who can heal all and the Giver of all Comfort. Thanks, Shug - for giving us this opportunity.

Praise God for improvements for Zoey. God loves her even more than her parents or anyone.

Oh, Shug, such a difficult time for this sweet family. At least there is a diagnosis. Prayerfully thinking of Zoey and all her loved ones during this critical time.

Thank you for asking us to lift up Zoey in prayer...i can only imagine how hard it is on the family.
I totally understand being busy so always know when you are needing a break for awhile that you are missed, not forgotten> Your blog is a inspiration to so many!
Love to you today,
Jill

I'm glad Zoey is showing signs of improvement -- such a little one to be going through such trauma!

No problems about not reading the blogs -- life comes first, right?
