Prayer Request

I know there are prayer warriors who read my blog. Please pray for my son, Malachi. He is very sick. He was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome when he was 9, but this is very different from anything we have experienced before. The doctors have admitted him to the hospital to try to stabilize him and to watch for risks. They are not exactly sure what is going on with him. Please pray for his healing and that God will give the doctors wisdom. Also, please pray for our family. This is a really scary time and his younger siblings are very sensitive to it (as are his parents). I KNOW my God is a healer and I really appreciate your prayers.

Hopefully, I will be back soon with a card to share. These past several days have been focused on my son and meeting the needs of my family. Designing D.I.V.A.S.--I hope to be able to visit your blogs soon. Thanks for understanding.
