Prayers Needed....

This is Chante...Shirl's sweet little granddaughter. She has been very sick after having been bitten by a tick. She seemed to be doing better until today. Shirl says she has spiked a very high fever (104 F) and she is lethargic. They live in South Africa and there isn't a pediatrician close by. It's a long drive to the doctor where she will be going first thing in the morning. We take so much for granted here...think of how you would feel if this were your child and you couldn't jump in the car and rush to the doctor's office. We're all very worried about her and I want to ask those of you who will to pray for her. She's such a sweet little girl and as sick as she is...she's worried about missing more school. Please....say a little prayer to keep her safe until they can get her to the doctor.

*Chante...Aunty Mel is thinking of you and sending you lots of hugs! Lief jou baie!*

Thanks so much for your encouraging comments. I will pray for Chanti, and your son as well. Please pray for our Marine son, we just got his orders today. Not many people know, so I can't share anymore. But I will soon. THanks!

Sorry, forgot to add this. Please email me with any comments about this, I was a little fast in getting this out. Please don't post a comment on my blog, as family doesn't all know yet. They do read my blog. Sorry for the inconvenience to you!!! :)

Praying for Shirl and Chante. Please keep us posted!

You are so right about what we take for granted. I can't imagine not being able to get immediate medical attention for a sick loved one. My heart goes out to Shirl and her family.

Internet issues, again, but I've been praying. Let us know how the little one is doing, okay?
