Bobbie Jo Cordle  WOODBRIDGE, VA

The day before Alison’s birthday, Pat asked her what she wanted.  She told him that she wanted to just spend the day at home celebrating with their four kids, ages 19, 16, 10, and their youngest 2, Mirranda.   

On May 11, 2016, Alison woke up on her birthday. Initially she thought that her husband slept in and was late for work, but quickly found out this was his surprise and he would be home all day with her and their kids.

At the end of Alison’s birthday, Mirranda ran in to the living room.  Eyes huge, no sound.  Time stopped.  Those were the last moments they shared before Mirranda fell to the ground; they swept her mouth, nothing; Pat started CPR.  The ambulance got there, Mirranda’s heart stopped.

Then… there was hope.  Mirranda’s heart started beating, she was intubated and placed on a ventilator and transferred to Children’s Hospital at VCU. 

Mirranda had additional signs of improvement, but the hospital is pushing to perform the Brain Death test on Mirranda tomorrow.  Should they diagnose her as ‘brain dead’, little can be done to give her more time.   We are fighting for more time to let her heal, we ask that you keep her in your prayers, keep the family in your prayers, and keep the specialists and care team in your prayers to make sound decisions for the well-being of Mirranda.

This all was caused by a piece of popcorn.  (Please share the danger of popcorn, someone may not know)

Pat and Alison Lawson are my aunt and uncle.  While they focus their energy to Mirranda and their other children,  along with the uphill battle to get Mirranda more time... I also ask that you reach out to me should you know of an attorney who could offer guidance,  as well as a neurologist that would be willing to look through her medical records.  

 No amount is too small and your generosity is greatly appreciated.  It will be used for medical bills and to support the family as they stay by Mirranda’s side.

Thank you for your prayers.

This journey has been so very unexpected and difficult. Mirranda fought strong and in the end God chose to call his angel back home in early November.

Although her time on earth was short, she made a difference in the lives of many.

Sharing her story with other families has help raise awareness about the surprising choking hazards that surround us every day.

Many of you shared her story, and likely saved a life.

Your support, kind words, and prayers helped us each step of the way. We will never be able to thank you enough.

It's been awhile since we've made an update to you, our friends and supporters. Finding the words has been difficult. Every day new words come to mind, but I pause in conflict of the "right" words. I still haven't quite got there. And even with no updates from us, many of you continue to send prayers and a kind note to lift our hearts every day. We appreciate each and every one beyond words can express. Thank you.

Prayer
Father of Heaven and earth, thank you for your strength, hear my prayer and show us the way to peace.

Great News! Mirranda is no longer taking her blood pressure medicine. This is just happening, the next 24hrs are important. She needs to keep her rate and beats in the normal range. Please keep Mirranda in your prayers tonight.

Hello to all of Mirranda's wonderful supporters, we just want to update you that Mirranda is still continuing to fight and with each passing day she is doing better. Her medications have been reduced and we believe it is only a matter of time and patience before she opens her eyes.

We wish that money was not the issue, but unfortunately the family has expenses that need to be paid. We appreciate every one of our donators and everyone who consistently prays for Mirranda, really without your help and prayers it would not have been possible to get this far in the first place. Please continue to share our story.

Thank you again, we can't say that enough. Thank you!

Luke 1:78-79
Because of God's tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.

this is my dejavue-for at the age of 2 years I chocked on the husk of the popcorn -resulting in collapse of my lungs and tracheotomy -I never had the honour of meeting or praying for Mirranda till now-for indeed my prayers hereafter will echo her name beyond the realms of time. May her soul be at peace and smiles upon all that remember her.
