    My Nephew died today

    Oh my..I don't even know what to say.

    Kellan just got out of the hospital last week and came home. He was supposed to go to Madison this week to be examined by the transplant team.

    His parents took him shopping today (yeah, I know..dumb). He started having trouble breathing, so they took him to the fire station across from the mall - who then transported him by ambulance to the hospital. But, as I always knew in my heart, God had other plans and took Kellan home.

    I'm rejoicing that he is with the Lord. I keep telling myself to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord and that is a WONDERFUL thing..but he was just a baby and I love him.

    I gave him a pair of swim trunks for Christmas last year. He never even got to wear them because they were too big..and now he'll never go swimming with my daughter.

    Oh Lord, my heart is breaking..Homesick..MercyMe..that's what I need..

    But I also need all you Christian brothers and sisters to pray for me and my family. My mom is going to fall apart, I just know she isn't going to handle this well. Please cover her with your prayers. Her name is Jane and she needs a hedge of protection right now.

    Thank you..God Bless

    Oh my...I am stunned. I am crying tears of sadness for you and your family, but rejoiocing that little Kellan will no longer feel any pain. He is with our Lord, healthy and happy.

    I KNOW this pain all too well, and even though we have a peace with knowing where these babies are, and that their salvation is guarunteed, we still hurt for ourselves. We hurt for the things these little ones we love will never experience. We hurt for the things we will not get to share with our little ones. We rejoice in knowing we will see them again someday and will share eternity with them.

    ~I am praying right now Lord that you wrap your arms around Dawn, around Jane, around this whole family and hold them close to you and let them feel your comfort. Lord we know that Kellan is with you now, but hearts are heavy and hurting without him. You know this Lord. We just trust in you for healing and support through the grief. Your ways are perfect Lord, and our understanding is not. Lord, we praise you for your healing comfort that is surrounding this family right now Lord. Thank you Lord. Amen.~

    Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength. -Unknown

    I am so sorry Dawn. Your nephew is in a much better place and is no longer suffering! I know that brings no comfort right at this second.

    I totally agree with what Eli Mae has posted!

    We're here for you honey!!
