    Hey, all you Prayer Warriors. Wanted to pass on this prayer request. I haven't posted about this family before. I'm not even sure what the little guy has. Just know that all other treatments have not been successful, and the Dad is almost a perfect match for the bone marrow transplant, which I guess is pretty rare. GOD IS SO GOOD! They live in ABQ but are in Denver for the next several weeks preparing for the transplant. Below is the latest email with their schedule for the next several weeks. Appreciate your prayers!

    *******************************
    The reference to the breathing problems refers to a side-effect he has been having most of the time when he's had a blood transfusion.

    Thank you all so much. I'll post as I get updates...

    Thanks, everyone. I know I often read a prayer request and pray, but don't post. So, for all those praying, whether you're posting or not, THANK YOU!!!

    Nicole :)

    I've prayed for easy, uncomplicated procedures for both, along with quick and complete healing.

    I'll be praying for Will and Chuck, as well as Sarah and Mom (whose is the only name not mentioned anywhere!). Do you know the age of Will?

    Hi...the mom's name is Rebecca...sorry about that!

    Will is elementary school aged (home schooled), and somewhere between 8 and 10, I believe. I'll find out for sure though.

    Thanks for the link, Nicole, but I'd rather read the updates from you, and here with our CS 'family,' so we can all pray together.
