Prayers Desperately Needed

One of my favorite bloggers, Attila the Mom, needs your prayers desperately. Attila's oldest son, 20-something Big Kid, is teetering on the edge of life and death due to complications from H1N1. Big Kid was healthy - no underlying health conditions. Everyone thought he just had a cold, but in less than 24 hours, the unimaginable happened.

Please take a few moments to read her posts about this, and then please, please keep Big Kid in your prayers.

There are many reasons why I am so desperate to get the H1N1 vaccine for my children, but no reason more compelling than Attila's story..

Hold on, Attila, and know that you and Big Kid are in my thoughts and prayers constantly.

Today I am thankful that Big Kid is fighting hard. Damn you, H1N1

Lifted a prayer for Big Boy and his family. Thanks for the opportunity to pray for him.

That is so awful. I don't know what to say. My thoughts are with that family.

Oh wow. So sad and scary. Sending a prayer right now. I so want M to get this vaccine as well but there are still none available here and won't be for some time. We see the pediatrician Friday and I am praying M can be put on a list for the vaccine due to her high risk to be hospitalized.
