Another URGENT Request

You know the saying, "When it rains, it pours"

It is definitely pouring here at our house.

I just received a call from my Uncle Roger and my cousin Dana was in a bad car wreck over the weekend and had to be taken to a hospital here in Knoxville. The impact was so bad, the seatbelt caused bruising on her kidney and it was bleeding. They waited 24hours to see if the bleeding would stop on its own, however it didn't, so they moved on to the next procedure which was a radiation type treatment to try to burn the spot that was bleeding. So far the bleeding has stopped, but it will be another 24hours before they will move her to a regular room, just to be on the safe side.

Please pray. It seems everything that could possibly happen this week so far, has.

Emily, I am so sorry to hear all of that! I will for sure be praying for both your cousin and Josh's gramdmother. I will praying for comfort to you all and peace. It's very hard when you are constantly getting bad news, I know. Just remember that God has a plan for all and that He is with you and the family. He never leaves us to figure stuff out on our own or to mourn on our own. Keep your eyes on Him. :)
