I know I have a lot to catch up on on the Blog but I just wanted to put this in.. I received an email from my Cousin today and wanted to share it with all the gorgeous people that read my Blog.. My Cousin's little boy is very sick and we really do need all your thoughts and prayers for him..
Kylie says it perfectly so here it is..
From MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
My son, Joshua Webb is 7 years old. He has always been a very active little boy. He is loving and kind, thoughtful and considerate, and a sweet child, popular with all his family and friends, and loved dearly by his parents and sisters.
Today he is lying in a hospital bed on life support, in an induced coma. This is day 8....
(induced 30th July 2010).
7 weeks ago he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. After 4 weeks of chemotherapy, he had two weeks off before the next intensive phase of treatment was to start, but that week, almost 2 weeks ago, he caught an infection in his lungs. In the space of 5 days he was admitted to hospital, then to ICU, and now in an induced coma because his little body was exhausted, and could not cope with the work it had to do just to try to breathe.
Joshuas family is requesting prayer please, from as many people as possible around the world. His mother Kylie, elder sister Sharnhi, (10), younger sister Nikkisha, (19 months), and his father Glenn, as well as grandparents, aunts and uncles, and family and friends, would like people to pray for Josh on August 8th, around 6.15 pm, Melbourne standard time. I know many of you are already praying for Joshua, which is greatly appreciated.
Its not so much the time that is important, but the supportive prayers of many going up that is comforting to our family.
Please, take a moment to pray for Josh.... even if its not something you would normally do, your voice is needed. He needs all the support we can possibly give him.
Joshua is a beautiful little boy, and has a whole lifetime of love to give and we, his family, would like your help in prayer during this very critical time please.
Thank you so much,
from Joshua and his family.
Any prayers and thoughts at anytime would be so appreciated..
Thank you so much.. xxxx♥♥♥
