Why? Why? Why?

OK, I need to just be able to write this out this morning because I have so many emotions going through my head.

Last night Chris and I and several other people went to Cinci to see baby Tressel and his parents. I have to say this was one of the hardest things I have ever done.


Just last week I ask a Friend of mine permission to do a post about her baby daughter she lost and talk about the little heros of our world. The little ones that are so good at the job God has given them in life that they accomplish it in just a matter of days or months and then go on to be with Jesus. Never did I think last week that I would be standing next to a friend of mine last night knowing she is losing her son UNLESS God decides to breathe life back into this child.


I can't imagine losing a child but how do you even deal with losing a child when it comes down to the fact that your child was poisoned by the hospital that you took them to to save their life.


Last night Tressels mom took me into see Tressel and all you could see of him was his forehead and his little swollen arms sticking out. Tressel is black and blue from the swelling. Honestly when I saw him I was filled with anger because he was poisoned, but not only that his parents can't even hold him or have anytime alone with him. He is living on life support and the room was full of Dr.s and nurses.


I ask Emilie if I could pray with him. I took his teeny, tiny hand along with his moms and prayed for a miracle. I told God that we were seflish and we needed Tressel here but if he chose not to provide a miracle that we knew Tressel was a little hero and thanked God for the time that this world was a little better that Tressel was in it.


I walked out knowing that only God is the one that could bring him back now. I walked out knowing that my friend and her husband have to do things over the next couple of days I can't imagine.


They know that it's not going to be long before they are asked to make a horrible decision about when it will happen, UNLESS GOD PROVIDES A MIRACLE WHICH HE CAN IF HE CHOOSES.


They have to find a lawyer and a very good one.


They have to face a hospital administration (with an attorney) that has not even apologized yet.


They have to celebrate Tressel's 7 month birthday today knowing that it will probably be the last birthday they celebrate with him.


Today many people are wearing red for Tressel and praying for him. Today at 11:11 people from all over the world will be praying for a miracle. Will you pray with us for a miracle? Will you also pray that if God chooses to take Tressel home to be with him that he will give Scott and Emilie the strength they need to get through what these next few days will bring.

My heart goes out to them. I can't imagine what they are going through. I believe God can give a miracle. I pray for them and to have strength to get though what lies ahead. God has a plan but sometimes it is hard to see it play out. I pray that they will continue to have great friends as yourself to carry them thru. Please GOD hear our prayers & touch his body.
