In need of much prayer...

Today started out like any other day, we went to church this morning, and then came home and ate lunch. Basically your typical Sunday... until... we got a phone call from one of our best friends. This morning our friends took their 6 month old daughter to the ER because of a small bruise that appeared out of nowhere on her chest. She also had another bruise that showed up a couple days ago on her hip, that they also could not explain. The doctors in the ER did some blood work only to find out that their little angel has Leukemia. Our friends called to tell us the news this afternoon, and both Gerod and I have been completely distraught over it all day. We cant even begin to imagine what is going on in their minds right now. They were transferred to the Children's Hospital here, which is supposed to be one of the best pediatric hospitals in the state. Fortunately they have great family and friends, so the support system is awesome, but prayers at this point are all we can ask for. I hope that if you pray that you say a little prayer for Emma... that God will heal her, and help her family through this very difficult time. We will be seeing them again tomorrow so hopefully I will know a little more then, but please be thinking and praying for this baby girl. She is an absolute jewel, and we couldn't be more heartbroken at her diagnosis.
Prayer works miracles... so please... be praying!!!
