I am still waiting for more exact updates on Maren. However, I did find out that the doctors discovered Maren has a very rare genetic recessive gene disorder. This is causing a lot of the problems with her cancer and chemo treatments. She is very sick and is not doing very well right now. So, please-please pray for Maren and her family! Update: Thanks to google, a resident for a daddy (Dr. J), and a tireless fellow (Dr. R) it was determined that Maren almost certainly does not have a genetic disorder, but is experiencing a side-effect of the 6MP that causes low blood sugar. We can't know for sure until she is done with chemo next summer, but as her mommy, I'm pretty certain - based on the timing of the meds given and the timing of the low blood sugar episodes.

This is Alison, Emily's cousin. It's been awhile since anything has been posted on here. But, I am making a post now to request prayers again for little Maren.
Unfortunately, she is back in the hospital right now. They are still running tests on her, so I do not know exactly what is going on . But, I do know that she is pretty sick and not doing well right now. I also know that Emily is very tired and sad. My aunt is currently on her way out to be with them and help out. After a long haul, they are all again in need of some love, support, and prayer.
I will post more details when I get some...
Thanks so much!
