little update

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.

My heart is so heavy for your family, dear Wingards, since reading this update last night. You are in my constant prayers. Please let us know what and if there is anything at all we can do. Peace be with you during this impossibly difficult, and I am sure, frightening, time.

I will be praying for sure!! I don't know why this is happening, but I do believe God is a sovereign and faithful God. I am praying for healing and I have been praying for healing & energy & strength & faith for everybody. I love this dear & special family, and I believe God loves them so much more than I do.
