Prayer request

My daughter has been hospitalized with an unusual infection in her left leg. She’s normally “fit as a fiddle,” running ten to twelve miles a week. Tuesday night we received a call that a friend was taking her to the emergency room of a hospital near her college. Like most parents we were scared. We are grateful that she is receiving good medical care. Prayers always help and so we’re grateful for prayers offered for her recovery. She’s in the first week of her junior year in college at State University of New York at Fredonia.

The hospital has a chapel and I stopped there a couple of times today to pray for her. As I prayed today I thought of the many parents around the world who must be at wits end worrying about their children. The parents of soldiers serving in war zones. The parents of children in those war zones. Tonight some Christian volunteers at the hospital came to her room and prayed with us for her return to wellness.

Thank you for your prayers. Peace.

    Thank you all. This is quite touching. She has lymphedema and I don’t know much about that. I spent a lot of time reading about lymphedema last night. Infections are more difficult to overcome because of the lymphedema, but she is making progress. I can feel your prayers and I’m sure she can too. Peace. 🙂 Don

  6. I’ll bring her to our prayers today. Peace.
