Sorry to leave you hanging...

but I've (Alison) only had updates on Maren here and there through texts from my mom. Half the time, I don't really even understand the medical jargon of what's going on, sorry! Being across the United States from Emily and family, I don't get all the details of what's going on. They are all super busy and overwhelmed right now with her condition.

From what I know, Maren's been in and out of the hospital. She is having severe problems with her liver right now. She was just in the hospital last week with some kind of bone marrow suppression and she is losing hair. This is not a cause of chemo as she's been off her routine chemo schedule due to her health problems.

Basically, she is pretty sick right now. The Wingard family is struggling again and feeling down with her condition. They really need some love and support!!

PLEASE...PLEASE keep ALL of them in your prayers!!

Pray for little Maren!!

Pray for her mommy and daddy, Emily & Jeremy!!

Pray for her big brother, Elijah!!

Feel free to leave some comments with encouraging words as I know Emily gets them!!

You are in our Prayers!!

PS...I will try to update with any news sooner!

Wingard family- my sister is a good friend of Alison and she told me about your sweet little girl. I was diagnosed with ALL (Burkitt's Leukemia) on February 23rd. I cannot imagine how difficult it is for you to watch your little girl undergo such difficult treatment. A friend of mine sent me this verse when I was diagnosed and it has brought me through some very tough times:
"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy 31:8
Your entire family will be in my prayers!
