I can not thank you all enough for your prayers. I am so filled with gratitude that Alyssa is alive that words truly escape me. I have been told by numerous physicians, especially given the petite size of my daughter, that it is truly a miracle that she is living. I know that God had his hand in her life and that she has more to do before she leaves this earthly existence.
At this time she is under constant care. She does not remember anything about the last month and no details about any other part of her life. From day to day she forgets everything that happened on the day before. I have to keep explaining to her things that have happened. Alyssa is upbeat and says that she feels as if we are all talking about another girl in a movie because she simply remembers nothing.
Alyssa has lost twenty pounds and appears small and frail almost like a first grade child. As wrought with sorrow for all that has happened, I am so grateful that she is alive.
Please continue to pray for her. It is still too soon to know when she will return home, but I will keep you updated. She has the best doctors caring for her and they are hopeful that this will have a happy ending. I guess I really am weak because my faith waivers in spite of the miracle of her life so far. Thank you again for your well wishes, faith, hope, encouragement and prayers. I hope God blesses each of you.
