(Chrissy) May 29th, 2010
I held her in my arms for an hour, the sweet little Chrissy. Her body looks like a 3 year old, but in reality she is 6. her body is burning up with a fever, and her breathing is so fast. her entire being is weak. not only physically, but also her will to keep fighting for her life. Chrissy’s body is not only consumed with AIDS, it has lost its passion and desire to thrive. she won’t eat. her lack of nutrition leavers her body malnourished and even more ill. you can’t look at her and not want to cry- this is not the Chrissy we know and love! The Chrissy who should not stop talking, playing tricks, and cracking jokes. we pray every day for that Chrissy to come back to us. I have seen God do miracles before, and for this night we pray and know that He has her in his arms.
I wrote this on May 29th the first night of the 2 and a half weeks she would spend with us. during her weeks with us she gained very little strength. despite the food we fed her, she still lost weight and her iron count dropped. she went to the doctor and they put her on the strongest AIDS medicine that there currently is. she is back at her home now, and we pray that the medicine works. if it doesn’t her life will be cut much too short. i can’t stop picturing her in my head, and as I do tears come. Jesus- please heal our little Chrissy.
