Asking for good thoughts…
Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Today’s post will be short. We’ll find out around noon the extent of the 7-year-old’s cancer. We know for certain it’s returned to her tibia, and she’ll undergo extensive surgery to remove it there. But today, we’ll receive results from the doctor at the children’s hospital from a full-body CT and bone scan so we have the complete picture of her illness.

She does have plenty of people thinking about her. Her Irish cousins have her on the Pope’s prayer list. Her Arkansan grandmother has her on Jimmy Swaggert’s. But more good thoughts, prayers, wishes are welcome.

Real life does provide more drama than fiction.

This was taken a couple of years ago, but our little angel is the one looking back…

    My thoughts are with her. What a horrendously frightening situation. Wishing her all the guardian angels the galaxy has to give.

    I’ll pull from the pagan side, praying to Brigid, Isis and all the deities of light and healing for her and for strength for all of you.

    Oh Delilah, words cannot express the sadness I experienced when reading her cancer was back. Having children with severe, life threatening illnesses is HARD! I know the punch to gut feeling I get every time we have to take our daughter Ashley back to the hospital. Life isn’t fair, is it?
    My thoughts and prayers are forever with you, the family and your little angel. As you walk this newest path may God’s hand rest lightly upon her shoulder holding her tightly to earth’s floor.
