I found my heart aching this week.

When I feel my heart aching for someone, then I know I love that person a whole, whole lot.

This was taken when she was feeling pretty good.
(During her first hospital stay.)
(She put this pic on FB so I think it's okay I put it here.)

I was driving around with little Nell in her car seat listening to songs on a CD her parents made - of little songs like "If You're Happy and You Know it" and "The Wheels of the Bus Go Round and Round", etc.  She sang and did the motions... and I found my heart aching.

Her mommy was in the hospital for yet another stay... with severe kidney stones and infection.

I have never had kidney stones, but I have known folks who have. They say the pain can be absolutely worst than childbirth.  WORST THAN CHILDBIRTH??? (WHOA.)
And then there's major kidney infection in Bailey, besides the stones. 

Anyway, I found my heart hurting for Bailey. Really aching.

I've always known I loved Bailey.... since she was a 14 year-old-girl who adored my son who was a 17 year-old at the time. They'd 'hit it off' during a mission trip, and when my daughter told me about it I was thrilled. Bailey Jo was so darling. Sweet. Shy. Sensitive. Beautiful. With good grades... and she had great taste in men. 

This past week has been very hard for her ... and my son.  They have an almost 2 1/2 year old and a 5 month old... and she is trying to nurse little Liam through all this.

I've tried to be there for them. And I have... and her dear mom has A LOT... and well, I'm thinking they need a full time nanny for a while.

As I write this she is still in pain... still in the hospital, having been admitted in the ER a week ago tonight. They went home for like 2 days, and then went back.  We thought she might be home tonight, but no, she needs at least one more night at the hospital.

I believe in God... and healing.
Please pray for Bailey... and Will, and Nell and baby Liam.

I know medical science can be the conduit of God's healing.

Well, however God wants to do it - I want Bailey's kidney stones and infection to be GONE.


Here's a picture at Will and Bailey at their wedding Oct 30, 2010...
