Happy Thanksgiving and a Prayer Request


Please say a prayer for my 16 year old nephew who was admitted to the hospital last night.  When he got out of the shower yesterday he noticed red splotches all over him and he didn't feel well.  His Dad took him to the emergency room and he has been admitted.

His platelet count was 1000 and it should be 130,000-150,000.  The doctors say something is attacking his platelets and killing them.  If he were to get cut or scratched with platelets this low, he could bleed to death.  They are running more tests this morning and he will probably be getting platelets today.   My sister is beside herself with worry.

They are hoping it is just a virus that has attached to his platelets and that anti-biotics will take care of it.  We pray that this is the answer as well and he will soon be mended and HOME.

Blessings

Linda
