Please Send Your Prayers...

My Mom emailed me this morning to ask me to fast and pray for my sweet cousin Jami's even sweeter husband Kameron.
A few weeks ago he had gall bladder surgery and everything seemed to be okay. Yesterday, though, at his checkup, the doctors were alarmed at the significant weight he'd lost in a short time--going from 134 lbs. to 119 lbs.. Now they are talking about him being in the early stages of liver failure, and if things don't get better, his life is at risk. I am emotional just typing this. This sweet little family is barely beginning-- I can't fathom the worst-case scenario here.

{2004: I got to take their wedding photos... What a lovely couple on a lovely day!}

{sorry for the bad scan... I was a film photographer back then}

And the happy family last year, with the arrival of their new son Kason.
(I pirated this pic from your website, Jami... Sorry!)

So... Please. If you get a moment today-- say a little prayer for my cousin and her beloved family. Pray that the unthinkable doesn't have to happen. Pray that he'll get out of this.

Thank you.

Thank you SO much for this. It really means a lot to our family. So did your phone call this morning.

I love you, Em.

Oh, I'm so sorry - I can't imagine how frightening this would be. Your family is in my prayers and thoughts!

Sending prayers for them, and I'll be asking others to pray for them as well. We'll start a prayer chain.

How heartbreaking...

But I love how positive you are right now, Jami! It's the hardest thing in the world to be brave and be able to live for the day rather than dwell on what the future may bring. It's a wonderful, inspiring way to think!

Emily, I will keep them in my prayers and it is amazing to see the power of fasting and prayers. A close family friend just this past week underwent a liver transplant. It's unfortunate, but incredible how quickly things work out for those who are going downhill fast. I'm not trying to be a downer, but I'm saying there's is ulitmate hope and ultimate power and miracles in fasting and prayers.
Check out liver2008.com to see his incredible journey if you choose.
There is always hope.

They will be in my prayers too. So sorry for this hard time.
