Calling all Prayer Warriors

If I could, I would like to ask you to pray for someone I have found through "blog-hopping". If you visit any of the blogs on my sidebar, you may have, by chance, found her, too.

Her name is Kristi Walker. She is a young mother in North Carolina. Within days of giving birth to her third child, she was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer with metastases to the liver, spine and pelvis.

I subscribe to their updates, and today she is in grave condition.

If you go to this link you can read about her and her family. You will have to create an account at carepages, but they will only send you updates on Kristi if you want them (and not advertisement, etc.).

Today, they ask specifically that we pray for the antibiotics to fight a particularly menacing infection, that she be relieved of pain, and that her platelet count would come up so that she could receive her next round of chemotherapy, which is due to be given tomorrow.

Your prayers have been such a blessing to me. I know they would be to this family, as well.

Oh, this is just such a sad situation. You can count on me to pray. Thanks for bringing this to others' attention.

Did you see the update yet? Kristy went to be with Jesus this morning. It's so sad for the family that she has left behind. I am praying that Jesus will just wrap His arms around her hubby and sons and family. Just wanted to let you know.
