Our Little Angel



You may remember my posts here and here about my great niece, Lilly. She is a very special little girl. She is fighting the fight of her life right now and needs your prayers and positive energy. Please take a moment in your day and send her love and light. We know it makes a difference.

She came off the respirator today, but is still in ICU, so it is still touch and go, minute by minute. Her heart stopped earlier this week, and her mother literally saved her life.

If you can help by becoming a bone-marrow donor, or have a few dollars to send her single mother, here is the website for Team Lillian

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it.


Thank you to Hilary for Post Of The Week:

Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear that Lily is struggling. I will keep her in my very best thoughts.

Be strong, little Sweetie.

Nancy said...

this is heartbreaking. Her little face! What is her illness?

Nancy said...

Nancy - She has a very rare auto-immune disease and has just had a stem-cell transplant. Unfortunately, her perfect-match bone marrow donor backed out at the last minute and they used stem cells. I wrote more about it on one of the links in this post. Thanks for asking.

I hadn't seen the picture of her with Santa before but I did just now and it took my breath away. Team Lillian has a new member.

Cole said...

It just tears me up to see little ones suffer like this. This should be healthy and happy times for them. There is such strength and courage in her you can tell. All my wishes and prayers and healing to her and much hopes for comfort and support to the Mother and you. God Bless.

Nancy said...

Susan - (sniff) Thank you so much. She is sooo special.

Cole - I agree - she should be bouncing around like a four-year-old. Soon, maybe with enough prayers she will be - soon.

This really got to me since my granddaughter is named Lily and is almost 3. I will pray that they find a donor for her.

Nancy said...

Barbara - Thank you so much and much love to Hilary for sending extra prayers Lilly's way.

leilani - The spirit of Aloha is just what she needs, thank you.

Pat - Unfortunately her donor back out at the last minute so they had to use stem cells instead. Hopefully the work. Thanks for your prayers and give your little Lilly an extra hug. A healthy child is a gift.
