Prayers for Callie

                             


                                                                   Prayers for Callie

                    Callie is our 13 yr old granddaughter. She is a very sweet and lovely
                    girl. Just a joy to our lives.

                   On Thursday night, I got the worse call , that a grandparent could imagine.
                   Cindy called, and when I answered the phone.... All I could hear was,
                   screaming and crying,  She said," Mama, please pray, Tell Daddy to
                   pray... some thing is wrong with Callie, I don't know what?, " I was hysterical and ask
                   " what is wrong?". the phone went dead..  A few minutes later, it rang.
                   She screamed," Oh Mama,  Callie is not breathing, Stanley is doing CPR,
                   and the ambulance is on its way."   I have never felt such terror, in my life.
                   When we got there,  She was being loaded on the  ambulance.

                  After many test,  The doctors said, she had  a seizure.[she has never          
                  had seizures or no one in our family]. She stopped breathing, not sure
                   why? They have called a pediatric neurosurgeon
                  at Lebourner Childrens  Hospital in Memphis, Tn., to get her an appointment
                 .Cindy  is scared to go to sleep, scared to leave her in a room alone, It is terrifying.

                  She seems to be doing fine now..  Other than when, she goes to sleep,
                  her hands are jerking??? Not sure what is going on?

                  I know that God is in control, and He is with her, I  pray for strength \
                  and courage to trust Him and know that He will take care of our sweet
                  girl.

                 Please remember Callie, when you pray..

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about Callie - I presume she will be followed up as an outpatient. Cindy needs lots of support at the moment - she will feel terrified and maybe even responsible for not being able to stop this happening - so she is also in need of lots of care. Thoughts and prayers your way, and do let us know what happens.
