As I am writing this my eyes are shedding so many tears I can barely see my computer screen! I would like you to meet my cousin Brooke! She is a 26 year old young woman who loves the Lord with all her heart and soul! Today is her 2 year wedding anniversary to a wonderful man of God named JJ.
Six years ago she was diagnosed with a heart/lung disease called Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH). She has had a pick line that goes directly to her heart ever since then that helps keep her stable in a sense! There is no cure for this disease and it effects mostly women between the ages of 20 and 40 years of age. It can however effect anyone! In the 1990's the life expectancies was 3 years now they have better medicine but since there is no cure it makes it difficult to say how long someone will live with this disease!
Well tonight I found out that Brooke is in the hospital and has been there for 7 days now! The doctors are upping her medicine intake but they don't have much room to work with. So they have brought in transplant papers for her to sign and start working on! If it come to this point she will need a lung transplant and possibly a heart transplant. As I was talking to my Aunt tonight I asked her on a scale of 1 - 10 how bad is it and she said it was between and 8 and a 9!
My heart hurts so bad right now! Brooke is such a precious person in my life and someone I love and care about deeply! Please pray with me for God's healing and will to be done! Brooke once told my dad that when God calls her home she is going to be ready! She has such a heart of gold and loves the Lord with all her heart!
Please pray for her family and husband during this time! Also please pray for wisdom and discernment for the doctors and nurses!
I trust and believe that God is in control of this whole situation and that no matter what He is a might God who loves Brooke more then I do! Which is hard to even comprehend!
Where I Went!!
