I am praying for strength and health for all of you. I am also praying for a donor soon for Ally. Jill, I remember your words from a year ago when I asked what I could do - you said to pray for the donor and the donor's family - I am sending those prayers to our loving God as well. Constantly thinking of you...Love, Lynne

Holly Cusumano / Sunday, April 29 2007 04:25 PM

You guys are in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks so much for your honesty. These tough times must be very difficult to write about. Better days are ahead, I feel sure.

Tracy Lambeth / Sunday, April 29 2007 01:03 PM

God, please bless the Heintz family. I pray that a donor will come through very soon for Ally, that Ashley can handle all of this despite her young age, and that Shane and Jill will hear the good news they are looking for from Georgetown. Amen.

Pastor & Kathy Pearson / Sunday, April 29 2007 10:58 AM

May the great good shepherd, our Lord, Jesus Christ watch over Ally. Open the doors for the life giving transplant. We entrust all of Ally's family to your never failing love. In Jesus's name. Amen.

hope Ally is able to come home soon

winky bergdoll / Wednesday, April 25 2007 05:33 PM

I think your family is on the same Merry-go-Round as the McDonough's. I have ridden it myself and it seems to go round and round and the horses keep going up and down and you can't get off. However--The good news is that you will get off one day. Keep trusting God's Word and read of His promises to Ally and you. God Bless you all, Winky

Sara Weller / Wednesday, April 25 2007 05:31 PM

Hang in there Jill.As a mother I cannot imagine what you go through-you are an amazing person. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Poupelet, I'm so sorry that you are not feeling well. Eileen called me on Fri to let me know that you were on your way back to the hospital. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your mommy, daddy and Ashley. I'm so glad that it will be a nice day for the least one good thing...I'm sorry that I will not be there, my dad needs me to come home this weekend, but I sent the donation before the plane left. Good luck. Stay strong.

phil haddad / Sunday, April 22 2007 03:14 PM

Patricia Ivie / Sunday, April 22 2007 11:17 AM

Father God, hold Ally and Ashley in your arms. Help them to experience your love and care. Heal Ally's body Lord and help her fight this infection. Especially be with Shane and Jill. Give them your assurance of love and care.

winky bergdoll / Saturday, April 21 2007 11:11 PM

I was so sorry to hear you are back at AI. It is a great place though. They will do their very best to get you home again. Remember, GOD IS WITH YOU. It is sometimes hard to remember in bad times, but Romans 8:28 tells us...And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.

Well, were going back to ...

Praying and missing you Ally.

Pastor Carl for St. John's / Saturday, April 21 2007 08:14 PM

This must be so hard to be back at Dupont--but we pray it is so right for all of you. May healing be as swift and sure as God is with you. And may you be lifted up by God, the walkers and your praying family in Christ. Lots of love and prayers always.

Pastor and Kathy Pearson / Saturday, April 21 2007 11:22 AM

Heavenly Father, let your healing power be at work in Ally. Be with her Mom and Dad and big sister Ashley and encourage them. Protect all who participate in the Walk on Sunday. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Gayle Benfield / Friday, April 20 2007 11:07 PM

Ally I can't believe what a trooper you are. I have never seen a little girl with such a great smile every time I see you and the to think you are back at Dupont a few days later. I am bringing a girl from work who is a living donor who I wanted to meet you, so if you don't make it on Sunday I will drag her to the next benefit we have so that she can say hello. Remember all of us are walking in honor of you and if you can't make it we know you are there in spirt. Like Cori said Dupont is the best place for you when you aren't feeling well so that the experts can help you. We all pray that soon you will be in Pittsburg and on you way to a normal little girl life. Watch out mom and dad, after this she will never want to leave home, she will be there until she is 30, which won't be so bad after all of this. Love and prayers to you Ally, mom, dad and Ashley, we will make you proud on Sunday

Cori Norton / Friday, April 20 2007 02:32 PM

Hi Ally and Family, Sorry to hear your heading back to Dupont. But remember that's the best place for you to get better. As always your in my prayers. Get better soon! We'll walk proudly for you on Sunday.

O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown.

Lord thank you for healing Ally to this point. Lord, help her get off the narcotics without withdrawal. You are the mighty physician and Lord almighty.

Audrey Eddinger / Wednesday, April 4 2007 11:51 AM

I am so pleased to hear things are going well, I read this web site everyday. My prayers are always with Ally, Ashley, you & Shane. You are two very strong parents. Have a very nice Easter!!

Leanne & Mason / Wednesday, April 4 2007 11:12 AM

We are so pleased to hear Ally is doing much better. I'm always taken back by the strength this little 3yrs. old has. She's absolutely amazing. I've wanted to share a little something with you. My son, Mason, is 10yrs old. He attends St. Aloysius school. Every morning they have prayer and he prays for Ally EVERY morning and night. Mason continually asks about Ally's conditions and even wants to donate blood. So I will call to see if they will accept a donation from a 10yr old. Plus we will be signing up for the walk. I just wanted you to know that not only are adults praying for Ally but she has a little friend in her corner as well. Keep the good news coming! Have a Happy & Blessed Easter.

phil Haddad / Wednesday, April 4 2007 11:02 AM

Carla Brodbeck / Wednesday, April 4 2007 08:58 AM

Praise God for Ally's continued recovery. I pray that her withdrawal symptoms are minimal. This experience is making you, as parents, very strong. By now you should be Mr. & Mrs. Atlas! I'm happy to pass along these positive updates to my friends who have also been praying for you.

Evy Bartholomew / Wednesday, April 4 2007 02:01 AM

I'm so happy for the great news. I pray for an easy transition off the narcotics. I know that is hard for an adult & I can't imagine being 3 going through it. I pray for continued strength for all of you. I know through this Ashley will be a very compassionate young lady as she grows.

Barb Miller / Tuesday, April 3 2007 11:06 PM

Sherry Crane has asked that we at the UMC at Newfoundland join with you all to offer our prayer support for Ally, so this is just to say that we are all praying for all of you and I'm so pleased to hear the good news today! We will continue to hold you all in prayer - as we all know, it works miracles, and that's what we are praying for for your miracle little girl. Grace and peace, Barb Miller

Cris Matlack / Tuesday, April 3 2007 05:15 PM

I get a headache when I just stop taking anti-histamines so rub Ally's temples for me over and over! And stick a washcloth on her forehead. Sometines old fashioned remedies help!!!! At least it makes you feel like you are doing something!!!!! Gosh, what you have to go though day after day after day!!!!!! God bless you all, you are truly the strongest group I know!

Pastor Pearson / Tuesday, April 3 2007 03:11 PM

Jill, Shane, Ashley and Ally--What good news to readto today's update! Thanks be to God. We rejoice and give thanks for this new day and the opportunities that it brings. We pray God's presence that the weaning process from the narcotics may be easy. Pastor Pearson
