Surreal


I can't believe I am writing this but I am desperate for prayers once again. My sweet 18 year old nephew Colin is in critical condition with a rare auto-immune syndrome called Wegener's which makes the body attack itself from within. He is in the hospital in Edmonton, Alberta which is a 4+ hour plane ride from here. I may be heading out on Tuesday to be with him and his mother who has also flown in.


Please, please pray for Colin. We need all the prayers we can get.

Joy, Oh my...I am so very sorry to read about your nephew Colin being so ill. How devastating auto-immune diseases can be. Our Isabella has them but her's are not life threatening as your Nephews. She to has been in the hospital and so very sick. I will keep Colin in my thoughts and prayers.
God bless you and your family.
Hugs & much love, ~Mary~ :-}
