Devastated.

My sister overdosed and is in critical condition. I feel awful.

Please pray for her and my entire family.

I'm so numb right now.

I know that God has a greater plan and I'm really trying to keep my focus on Him and my trust in him.

God is in control and I'm praying that this opens her eyes.

Last we heard is her liver had started failing and that her enzymes were really high. Her heartrate is steady as of now but they will have to keep a close watch for the next 72 hours.

Pray for my mom. My dad is out of town and coming home tomorrow.

I can't feel anything right now.

I guess sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom to open your eyes. I sure hope this does.

She's going to be okay, she has to be okay.

They wouldn't let me see her.

I can't cry in public and my frustration, anger and hurt is so bottled up within.

I feel like I have to be strong, always have. Even though I am so frail and broken.

Please pray for me as I and my entire family are in dire need of it right now. Especially my sister, Ashton.
