Prayers Needed for Abron & family

CaringBridge.org - abronkelly 

Some of you will remember I've written about one of my co-workers daughter.  She received a 2nd kidney transplant last year and so far so good.  (First one from her Mom she rejected; 2nd one was from a 16 yr old girl who died in a car accident.)

Until now....they did a biopsy last week...seems she is trying to reject the kidney.  She is in Duke being monitored and medicated. 

Abron is such a brave and strong little girl.  It is heartbreaking to know she is going through this again.  Her Dad (one of our superintendant) is very disraught.  Mom remains positive, yet cautious - she's a nurse.

I cannot imagine the mixed emotions that the family must have right now.  Fear, pain, anger, along with hope and love .... at least the docs are treating her with all they know how.

We all will pray for God's will.......I will ask for God to heal her and not take her from us.  But I also know that whatever His decision, it is the best for Abron. 

Yes, I question why such a beautiful, talented child has to suffer....but I can't answer that.  Yes, I want a miracle drug to heal her so that she can be a "normal" kid and go to school and laugh and play. 

I  have just spoke with the Dad....he sounds so depressed and empty.  I said "don't you love me anymore?" and he replied "No I don't"....and smirked a tiny bit and said "what do you think of that?"............sad........empty.

When we hung up, I went to her site on Caringbridge and read about the medications she is getting and how she is having to remain in Duke.  I left her a note to KICK BUTT and that she would be receiving many prayers. 

I know J-land will sound many for her and for that I am grateful as well as is her family.  Tom's baby brother is a 2 time kidney recipient also....he knows the fear and challenges....and he will pray also!

It is heartbreaking, especially when children are so ill.  We, as parents, can so relate.  "There but for the grace of God, go I".  Prayers for Abron and her family :)

I hope so very much that the little girl will accept that kidney or another one is forthcoming.  I will pray for the entire family that nothing but good and positive thngs will happen.
