Please Pray For April & the Joonsars

My BFF, April, and my blogger partner has just been hospitalized with Meningitis. The doctor believes that it is Bacterial Meningitis but they won't know for sure until the test results come back which can take 24-36 hours. Please pray for April as she is in a lot of pain and the medicines they've been giving her have yet to help. Pray for her 3 small children who have all been exposed and must go to the doctor tomorrow.

Today is Tate, her oldest son's 5th birthday and I know this was not in the birthday plans. Graham just turned 3 and Eve is 10 months. Both Tate and Graham have severe food allergies. I can't stress the word severe enough. Deathly allergic to a laundry list of foods. Eve is too young to be tested for any allergies. The doctor just informed April she could not breastfeed Eve at this time and therefore Eve has to receive formula bottles. PLEASE PRAY that Eve is not allergic to dairy. Dairy is one of Tate's highest food allergies and Graham is allergic as well. Please pray for peace for April and her husband Marty as I know they are greatly concerned about the risk to their children. And please pray for complete healing for April and rest for her body. She is worn out and in so much pain. Thank you prayer warriors. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for posting this, Whitney! I've been following your blog because of April. I used to babysit for Tate and then Graham when I lived in Atlanta. I was one of the people on call to watch Tate when Graham was born, and I remember the book April had explaining his meal schedule and what he could and could not eat. They are a very special family, and I will be praying for all of them, along with Forester and your family.
