Day 24

the doctors came to talk to us this morning...last night her lung collapsed and they had to insert a new tube in her chest...they were able to reinflate her lung but they are having suffecient bleeding now
she also has bleeding in her brain and is currently unresponsive


  1. I don't even know what to say...this is heartbreaking and I can't stop crying.

    My heart goes out to all of you. She has fought so hard, we have all prayed so hard.

    You are all in my thoughts...

  2. Oh NO! Like Tanya, I am in tears and my heart is breaking. Poor Micheline, she is trying so hard to fight this. I am still praying (even harder that before if that's possible)
    Kate I know this has got to be taking a toll on you & your family. All this up & down news... I am so sorry for what you are going through. Just hang on tight to your family and keep the faith. We are all here for you, even if we are in different states snd countries.

    God Bless Your family!

  6. Just another hurdle - Micheline CAN FIGHT THIS............. she has overcome every other hurdle thrown her way.

  13. Lord and Father, almighty and eternal God,
    by Your blessing You give us strength and support in our frailty:
    turn with kindness toward this Your servant Micheline;
    Free her from all illness and restore her to health,
    so that in the sure knowledge of Your goodness she will gratefully bless
    Your Holy name.

    Lord our God, Who went about doing good and healing all, we ask You to bless Micheline's family and friends and all who are suffering with worry for her. Give them the strength in body, courage in spirit, patience in pain, and resolve in their Faith.

    May You bless and heal Micheline who is ill.
    May our merciful Father overflow with compassion upon her,
    to restore her, to heal her, to strengthen her, to enliven her.

    May the Heavenly Father send her, speedily, a complete healing,
    a healing of her soul and healing of her body,
    soon, speedily, and without delay,

    Kate, I know your faith is being tested, as is mine and I'm sure many others'. Keep your hope alive and stay as strong as you can. There is a profound outpouring of love and support for Micheline and for all of you, so draw what you need from it and pass it along to your Mum.
    Deeply saddened, but not giving up hope, our prayers are yours,
    Tanis, Glen, Jake, Colin and Ayden Wright

  14. Hang in there missy......I know you can do it...please!

  15. My heart goes out to you Kate and to your family. This is such a difficult time but I still have faith that your mom will recover.

  16. Speachless....I am praying for all of you.

  17. No words can express how I am feeling right now. Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers although we are so far away from you all!!

  18. Kate, not sure if you'll remember me, Val, you took the babysitting course at my house when you lived on Willa. I just found out about your Mom at work today from Monica. I am devastated. I heard about a woman who was air lifted to London but had no idea it was your Mom. Please tell your Dad we are praying for you all. Remember that our Heavenly Father is still in control and will hold you in the palm of His hand. Praying for peace. Love to everyone. Val and Robert

  19. There must be only one name being heard in the heavens through prayer right now -- it is Micheline.
    Please God answer our prayers and
    heal her from this terrible sickness. She has so much more life to live and we need your help.
    Mike, Katie, Kelsie, Chrissy & Trevor keep strong and support each other and do not give up hope. Your Mom is a remarkably strong and determined woman and I know she can beat this. Love and prayers are with you now and until she comes home. Bevy XO

  20. Kate I too am praying through tears and heart ache for Micheline and all of you but have great hope that she will continue to fight and overcome yet another hurdle. I am so proud of you being strong enough and taking time to keep all of us up to date. We will continue to pray and send hope your way.Hope it helps alittle to know how much people care about you all.
