Prayer Request for Grace

It has been a while since I have blogged for a prayer request. We've been so caught up in Jessie's rehab and all the great things that she is doing, that I haven't really thought about much else.

Well, today, as I'm typing this, there is a girl named Grace who is undergoing a hemispherectomy at Johns Hopkins Children's Center for Rasmussen's Encephalitis. The situation is very similar to Jessie's, only Grace is 11 years old. I can't imagine how difficult this is for her and her parents, as she understands everything about the surgery and what limitations she will have after the surgery.

Although she is a very brave girl, and her parents are AMAZING people, please take just a few seconds today and say a prayer for Grace. With a name like that, how can you not pause for a minute for a short prayer. Without grace, where would any of us be?

Please pray for a smooth surgery and for her surgeon, Dr. Jallo. Please pray for all of the medical staff at Hopkins today that will be taking care of her. Please pray for her Mom, Debbie, her Dad, Seth. Also for her big brother, and all of her extended family and friends. They are all very worried right now....beyond anything that you can imagine.

If you are interested in keeping up with Grace, you can find her blog here... .

God Bless,
