Well today was another day in our new found life. We got the much expected grin from ear to ear as Brylee shoved chocolate in her mouth. Thank you to the Easter Bunny for making her happy! She also had a nose bleed today that took 7 minutes to get it to stop bleeding. I called the doctor and they said that she probable had the bleed due to a low platelet count and that if she had another nose bleed today we needed to take her straight to the ER. Also, we need to get a CBC test done tomorrow to see where her blood counts are. Luckily we have not had to make an ER trip yet. The doctor said that if her counts are too low she'll most likely have to get a blood transfusion or some platelets depending on what her numbers look like. I'm super freaked out! It's one more thing that my little girl has to endure that normally she shouldn't have to. It makes me so sad that she has to once again go through something that normal people never have to experience.
We were talking about Easter today and what the day signified. We were discussing that Friday was a horrible day. It was the day our Savior was crucified on the cross and beaten. It was a day full of earth quakes and storms. It was a day full of sadness and sorrow. But Sunday came and it was the day our Savior was risen. It was a day full of glory and thanks. We are currently having many Fridays with this trial of Brylee's. We are baring such heart ache and sorrow. Such sadness and grieving. But there will soon be a Sunday when she gets to rise again and be reunited with us. We will once again be a whole family.
My testimony has grown so much over the past 3 and a half weeks. I've had many mom's private message me about how they have read my story and are now doing everything they can do make the moments count. There are some that have quit their jobs so they can spend more quality time with their children. There have been some that have signed their child up for that extra sport and have made the sacrifice to drive an extra hour to get them there. There have been many that have told me it's been years since they have prayed or thought of our Heavenly Father but they are hitting their knees for my Brylee. There has been so much good come from so much bad already. I can only imagine what the next few months will bring. There has been a scripture coming to my mind all day today. It's 1 Nephi 4:13 "It is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindle and perish in unbelief." I know it's not completely in the correct context about Brylee but it makes me have hope that even though she may be suffering right now, that we are all suffering right now, that her life will cause a difference in this world. Her sweet life will bring people to the Lord and cause for them to change their lives and realize what is important. It is better for one little girl to pass than for hundreds of people to pass with no faith. She is bringing faith to this world.
