will you pray for Levi with me?

"Every mothers worst nightmare came true August 7, 2011. We discovered that Levi has a brain tumor. "

This is the introduction to a new blog that my cousin Kara had to start today, for those wishing to follow the journey they've just embarked upon.  I wish she didn't have to start this blog.

Kara is a mom much like me.  She balances working with motherhood, and her heart is always with her children.  She enjoys being active, exercise and a healthy life for her family.  We are close, in the way that cousins are, but we have almost always lived at least 45 minutes apart--so we don't see each other a lot.

Levi is 2 years old.  He is confined to the hospital crib and can't even be picked up or held for comfort, due to drains in his head and his medical condition.   I spent 24 hours in the same hospital with Lily last month and it was such a surreal experience.  I can't imagine knowing we'd be there for days or maybe weeks.

Would you click over and read about Levi and keep him and the family in your prayers?  They also have a 4-year-old son who is having his world rocked as well.

I am so thankful that my cousin shares my faith in God.  We depend on Him so heavily in times like these.  Not all the members of our extended family have an active faith in God.  Perhaps God will use this to draw them unto him.

Feel free to comment and encourage them on their blog!
