Pray for Kate McRae

I try to not sit here and ask why. It's getting exceedingly difficult.

Wednesday night, my friend Rachael brought to my attention a little girl from here in our area. Her name is Kate McRae. She was taken to her pediatrician on Monday for tremors in her hand, and sent that evening for a CT scan. In no time flat, they took the mom into a room and told her Kate has a 6cm tumor on the basil ganglia of her brain and she immediately needed brain surgery.

Why?

To say I can associate with this mothers feelings is an understatement. From the day we find out we are pregnant with our babies, we as mothers protect. We spend all of our energy ensuring our babies are taken care of, needs met, and they are safe and healthy. There is absolutely no feeling like the one of having your position as protector and provider being ripped away from you.

Kate is in surgery at Phoenix Children's Hospital this very moment. She will be in there for 3 to 8 hours, depending on the severity.

Pray. Please, I'm begging you. Pray God spare this little precious girl, and protect her and her family. Pray He guide the doctors and nurses.
