4/21/09 - Please Lord, Help Us!!!

We are sitting here thinking of the right words to say, but there are never the right words to say when your life has been turned upside down in a blink of an eye.

"I am praying, Lord, that you will speak through me and deliver this message to shine a light on others for them to show you how special Kayleigh is to all of us and how we are not ready to say goodbye."

We need your prayers right now! Something terrible is going on with Kayleigh and no doctor or specialist can lay a finger on what has caused this to happen. Our hearts are breaking right before our eyes and we are in complete shock at the moment. Please help us.

As you all know, post surgery seemed to go as expected. Normally, it gets worse before it gets any better, but Kayleigh was showing great signs of recovery. Although, after a couple days and things progressing normally, sweet Kayleigh is not waking up anymore. She is no longer on the Nitric or any pain medication. She is on very low settings beyond the expected pressure control to help her breath. Her sats are great and her heart rate/blood pressure is right where it should be. However, she is still not waking up like she should be at this point.

Her sweet tiny body lays still, with very slight (unexplainable) movements at times, while her muscles are contracted beyond any measurable understanding. The thought of some kind of neurological problem quickly raised a red flag and an EEG test was conducted only to show that a big section of Kayleigh's brain (cerebral cortex) is not working at all and may never work again. In other words, the doctors stated she has a flat reading, which is another term for being brain dead.

This is so hard to write and so hard to take in right now. The doctors plan to do more testing to see what could have caused this to happen and why she still makes unexplained movements. Was it the excess pain medication they gave her to calm her down? Was it a stroke that she encountered while fighting off the pain the other night? Was there not enough oxygen or blood flow to the brain? Did the Nitric cause this? Barbiturate poisoning can cause flat readings at time, so could that be the case? (She had some phenobarbital this morning) With all these questions running through our heads, we have no idea, but we pray we will get the answers as quick as possible.

This has all happened so sudden and we don't know what is going to happen from here or what to even do. All we can do is pray there was some error, some mistake, something was overlooked or by God's grace, her brain will miraculously start working again. We have all seen miracles happen with Kayleigh many times before and I have learned my lesson by giving up hope and not trusting that the Lord has the final decision. That is not even a question in my mind anymore.

Unfortunately and sadly, no one else is optimistic when it comes to Kayleigh's recovery from this and when the doctors comforting love turns in to the "matter of fact" attitude, we know they have once again lost hope. The doctors have been amazing through this journey and we know they will do everything in their power to help Kayleigh through this. There is no one else in this world we would trust other than them, but it just hurts sometimes to compare Kayleigh to other situations when Kayleigh has created her own case study of uniqueness.

With all the faith in the world, it still hurts to think that this journey may end so drastically and beyond understanding. Kayleigh is our precious gift from God and He has given us this sweet miracle for a reason. Whether she touches someones life to bring them closer to God or closer to their family, we may never know the true reason until we meet our creator face to face. We have to trust God for the things He does, but staying strong and patient for those answers are practically unbearable at times.

We know the doctors are not as optimistic and statistics prove that Kayleigh's chances are very slim right now, but we all know our Lord all too well and His way will be the right way. We don't know what is going to happen in the next day, week or month, but if we could ask for anything from you all, please pray your hearts out and please keep us strong with your support through these difficult times. Please pray that the Lord will fix Kayleigh's brain waves so she can continue to bless all of us with her amazing strength, love and that adorable little smile. Thank you.


"Lord Almighty, You are so amazing and your love is beyond greater than any words we could ever imagine. We are not blaming you one bit or nor are we angry at you for what is going on here because we trust in you and we love you with all of our hearts.

We beg of you not to take our little girl from us. Heal her troubled body and give her the strength to make it through this devastating circumstance so she can come home to our family who anxiously awaits with open arms.

Our faith is so strong and we know you are so powerful to do anything your will desires. If Kayleigh is ready to go to heaven to be with you, we completely understand, but then please give us the strength to live our lives without seeing her precious smile and filling our hearts with happiness every single day. Give us direction to continue to share her precious story to help so many others come to know you Lord, love each other and find hope in their own journeys. We know that we are here to prepare our lives for eternity with you, so we trust that your decision is the right decision.

We are just not ready to say "Goodbye, for now."


Please Lord, Help us!!!

Adam and Aimee,

Doctors have not even come close at understanding the human brain. It is almost completely unexplored territory for them. Especially babies' brains. I will never forget- there was a little girl that was adopted by a family , and she had shaken baby syndrome- so much damage that the doctors said she'd NEVER lead a normal life. They were absolutely certain.
That little girl is now over 3 and laughing and smiling, walking...there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH HER. What I'm trying to say is, sometimes doctors write people off but God hasn't even come close.
I pray through all of this, that GOD'S WILL BE DONE, and that he will keep your family in perfect peace. Still believing.

Heather Marie said...

My heart is breaking with you...

I just read your blog last night and was happy to see how well Kayleigh was doing after her surgery...

We are not ready to see her go. She is such a miracle inside and out and I pray with all my heart that she will get through this.

Praying, praying, praying so hard for your sweet little angel.

Lisa said...

don't give up hope yet - i have seen, more than once, patients take a week to wake up from sedation post-op. Especially when they have been on as much as Kayleigh has for as long as she has. Hold on to your faith and I will be praying for Kayleigh and your family. Lisa - ICU nurse.

Your story has shown me the true miracles that only He can work. He has brought me back to the light and I know He has many more people to touch through Kayleigh. I will never give up hope. God Bless Sweet Kayleigh!

Freeman Family,
I have never met you but have been following your blog every day. Your faith, devotion, and optimism are inspiring. Remember all that Kayleigh has been through, and continue to be an advocate for your sweet little girl. I know you follow McKMama's blog...remember what she has said about Stellan. That HE WILL LIVE. Whether she lives here with you or whether she lives with God in heaven....SHE WILL LIVE. I know that is not what you want to hear when things are unknown. Don't lose hope that she will continue to thrive in the hospital. We are praying.

I can't even begin to imagine what you two must be going through. I know he has brought her out of a lot and I am not giving up hope that he will not bring her out of this. Please Father I come to you right now asking you to heal her brain and for her to start showing signs of your healing to her little brian. I know I am personally not ready for her journey to end as she has touched me beyond words and brought my family to be a more loving family. I know your will is best Lord but please let her stay here with her mommy and daddy. Amen As tough as this is on you please keep us updated today. My heart is at my feet at this moment. I promise to you both I will pray like never before for her healing. We love you guys. Please Kayleigh let that fight in you come out and overcome this baby girl.

I have been reading for a while and just decided to comment. While I pray for all preemies because they are just so stinking special, I will add a few more for your sweet pea. I pray that your family will have PEACE whatever GOD's will may be. If Kayleigh wakes, may she bring more joy to your life than she has so far...and IF by some rotten chance you guys have to join "the club" that no parent should ever have to join, may you be blessed by the life she has lived to this day and know she has touched SO many lived through your words. May God bless you with peace, patients, and as much calm as possible. Be still and trust Him!
Best of wishes.

I'm praying! I'm so so very sorry to hear this has happened to precious Kayleigh! She seemed to be doing so well and now this. May you feel the Lord's comforting arms around you. I pray Kayleigh proves once again, what a fighter she is.

Krista, Bill & Eliya Kurtzweil said...

Oh Lord my God, you are the miracle worker and you have proven this in allowing Kayleigh to live out her life so far. We ask you Lord for wisdom, wisdom for the doctors and nurses that are working with Kayleigh right now, please dear Lord bring something to light that they have missed, allow them to see something that might be causing this precious little lamb of yours to be so helpless at this time. Lord we ask you to HEAL sweet Kayleigh and allow her life to continue to touch and reach out to hundreds and hundreds of people around the world with her story. Lord her parents love her so much, but we know that you love her more and if you need her more than they do please allow them the strength to fight the battle of grief and know that they WILL be united with Kayleigh again. Lord place your healing hand on her head and allow her brain waves to start working again. Heal Kayleigh Lord, you CAN do this and we fully believe in your power. You are and will always be the miracle worker Lord, we Love you. Please be with the Freeman's during this time, God you gave up your son to die for ALL the sins of this world and watched him suffer thru the pain it brought, you do KNOW what the Freeman's are feeling and going through, please hold them. Wrap your arms around this family that has had a rough journey so far. Love them Lord and give them the strength and support system they need to press on Lord.

I am in shock with you.

Praying again that Kayleigh will defy the medical community and that God will grant her a miracle on earth.

And praying for peace for you no matter what miracle God chooses to bless her with.

So many of us have fallen in "love" with your baby girl and we are praying.

Dearest Lord,
Thank you so much for allowing Kayleigh and her love to be shared with the world. Thank you for the guidance you have provided for her family all these many months. Thank you for the doctors who have labored over her and continued, through You, to keep her healthy.
You have shown us time and again that All Things Are Possible Through YOU. Thank you for your examples and miracles.

We come to you now Lord with a humble and hopeful heart. We ask of you today to reveal yourself to us once again. We ask you to place your hands on Kayleigh and heal her tiny body. We ask that you allow her to live and continue your ministry through her life as a living testimony of your Grace.

We ask that you bouy the strength of her loving parents and grant them peace and wisdom. We ask that you once again provide her doctors with the wisdom and resources needed to perform Your work.

We ask Lord above all that Your will be done. We ask all these things in Jesus' name. Thank you Lord for your Son and His sacrifice. Amen.

I am stunned to learn about Kayleigh this morning. Please know that your blog, your faithfulness, your work to share Christ and His works with the world through Kayleigh...it has impacted me so greatly from the moment I stumbled upon your family blog many months ago. I know that you have impacted SO many people through this testimony...Kayleighm her AMAZING story has brought so many people together and bound us tightly through Faith. Of course, we pray fiercely for Kayleigh to overcome this issue...but know that, no matter what, your familiy's example has had PURPOSE BEYOND IMAGINATION. You have led...we have followed. Thank you. God bless.

"hurts sometimes to compare Kayleigh to other situations when Kayleigh has created her own case study of uniqueness. "

You know, when Bridget's studies also gave the doctors no hope, I couldn't, didn't believe them. I was *sure* God intended to use her to give the world a reason to believe in Him. ***I*** believed in Him! My sister had mistakenly called her Tabitha about a month before. And Tabitha was raised from the dead! I had already buried Dominic, and I had had an impression before she even had her crisis event and flown to the hospital that she would be a special needs child (so I understood she would not be made whole, but that she would survive). Bridget died a week after being flown to the hospital.

I admit, I had read of Kayleigh's story a while back never came back to read more. Why? Because of what you wrote. It hurts to see the miracles happen for others the way that they didn't happen for us. Yes, we are still here somehow seven and a half years since Dominic's death, 1.5 yrs since Bridget's. But I don't trust Him as much anymore. I trusted so freely, so deeply, and was crushed. But I guess there is the "miracle" that I still believe. I am unsure and don't understand, but my anchor is still there.

I used to believe in doctors, too. But I don't trust them either. I still trust God much more than these mere mortals.

I just wrote on another blog last night that we need to be reminded sometimes that "It'll be okay." And that I have to remind myself that doesn't mean "It'll be my way". It sounds similar, but not the same. I am learning to be more submissive to these challenges that the Lord has allowed for me to have rather than feeling so very subjected to them. I feel very hurt. Each of our little ones is as precious and loved and wanted as all the other ones out there. It doesn't make sense to me, either, why one family's tragedy is so much more cared about than another. When every child has the impact on our hearts that they do, they all are deserving of prayers, or caring and support, and if they are to leave this world, those of us left behind need so much more of the world's love and caring to come in and sustain our crushed souls, our broken hearts. I wrote about these feelings soon after Bridget died in my post called "Depth."

I just hope that in your case there was a mistake. But I also know how serious a flat reading is. I understand that. I really understand. :(
