Friends in Need

Guys, I don't often come to this blog to ask for prayers/happy thoughts/positive vibes. Tonight, I'm coming here to ask for prayers/happy thoughts/positive vibes. Two friends of mine have loved ones in the hospital. Two friends who need support.

Deanna's father had a very intense brain surgery on Tuesday to remove a brain tumor. It was supposed to be a six hour procedure. After eleven and a half hours of surgery, the neurosurgeon reported that it was more extensive then they originally expected. There was more blood to the tumor, and he had two strokes during the surgery--one at the brainstem and one at the cerebellum. He is still intubated and heavily sedated. Tonight, he is responding better. Deanna has been through hell this week.

Please, please add my sweet friend to your list of prayers. She needs it.

Crys and Baby Zack
Crys, Alexa and Zack's mom and my friend, needs your support. In June, sweet four year old Alexa passed away. She had been battling Neuroblastoma since she was 19 1/2 months old. Her adorable, happy son Zack has been battling a mysterious rash and pain for four months. This week, they found a growth under his chin. In one day, it tripled in size. He was hospitalized Tuesday night. Tonight, he had surgery for the growth, which is an infection (most likely MRSA staph infection). Today, the doctor told Crys that he believes Zachary has a combined immune deficiency disorder. They don't know the extent of it all.

Please send every good thought and prayer to both Baby Zack for his recovery and to both his parents Crys and Zack.

Thanks for posting this, I have not been to Crys` blog for a while. I am so sad for them, somehow this strikes me is way beyond unfair.
