A good nights sleep

The nurses got Cassie a full size bed so that we could lay with her. Since yesterday we have been able to hold her in our arms, which she has enjoyed. Her selfless Mother held her for 3 hours, afraid to move and cause Cassie discomfort, Ali's arm is still sore. Ali has been in bed with her this morning, a few moments ago I heard the now familiar sound of Cassie calling out "Mommy?" With her Mom beside her she was quickly comforted.

We have felt the same comfort and proximity of our Heavenly Father as we've called out for help with this trial. We know it is an answer to the many prayers and fasts that He has been there and comforted us.

For the record, this couch bed I'm on tonight... not so comfortable :-)

Still no movement of her left arm.


  1. That sweet picture of the 3 of you is priceless! Ali is an amazing mom-sweet Cassie is so lucky to have you guys! We are praying for you & hope you continue to witness miracles...we are here for you if we can help in any way! The Allen kids are welcome here anytime~our kids would love it! Steve-I hope they didn't make you sleep on a loveseat! Tell them you need a big boy couch! ;)

  5. That is a beautiful picture of you with Cassidy! Please take care of yourself Allison (don't forget to eat and sleep) so you can take care of Cassidy. Let other people who love you take care of everything else.
    I'm sure part of your A-team is Dr. Brockmeyer and Dr. Walker. They were our a-team with Madilyn's neurosurgeries, external ventricular drain and shunt. You are in good hands up there at Primary's. From our family to yours, we are thinking of you and wish you the best. With love from The Bollwinkel's
