Mikel Ann Taylor, is our baby. She is 7 1/2, she is in the second grade and is a wonderful piece of our lives. Recently we recieved some news that is a little overwhelming for us. We don't have all the pieces of the puzzle yet, we return back to the dr this next week. However I am asking that my fellow bloggers begin to pray. Mikel was diagnoised with migraines about 5-6 months ago. The headaches began in January. It took a few months but we got to the headache clinic and that is where the diagnosis was made. Well about 3 weeks ago she had one seizure. But it was enough to make the doctors want to do further testing. One of which was an MRI--- Last Tuesday Mrs. Pat and I went to take her in. Really believeing we would just get some answers that were all the same, she has headaches continue the medicine, blah blah.... But what we were told was devastating to us all.
Mikels test showed that she has a brain tumor. It is on the left side of her brain and that she will now see the nuero surgeon. THIS IS ALL WE KNOW......
We spent the first two days crying and looking at her very different. But I kept saying she is healthy. She plays, jumps, skips and she can't be sick. As parents Brian and I have allowed our minds to wonder and say ALL of the what ifs...... We finally reached the place yesterday that we had given her to God along time ago and she is His.
I hesitated in writing this blog but I so felt that If I didn't, my friends couldn't pray and right now we need every prayer that can be given. My aunt encouraged me to share with those that would lift Mikel Ann up.
I have asked God a million and one questions and I was directed to a passage of scripture.
2Corinthians 1:5--- For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows...-- The commentary study to this scripture states the following: Our suffering is a link to Jesus Christ. Through he was the son of God, he endured the frustrations of flesh while living in a sinful world. We still live in that fallen world. Some of us face physical, some face emotional stress and battles. But because Jesus lives within us, he shares the pains, the sorrows and the frustrations we feel. He joins with us in our suffering and ---even more encourageing---he also offers us comfort.
As a christian I realize I am going to go through some tough times; but I WILL NEVER GO ALONE!!!!!!
Thank you for your prayers and we will be believing for a good report.
