Prayer for a friend...

I was up very late and was able to chat with my good friend Karen who is going through a very difficult time, her 16 year old nephew Tristan is in the hospital with a serious head injury from a car accident. She is staying at the hospital during the night so her sister can sleep a little bit. They are praying for a miracle of healing. They hope that as many people as possible will join with them in prayer for Tristan. And tonight, I'm glad for the technology that allows for us to IM quietly in the middle of the night while she sits in the hospital.

Update from 1/6/2011: Thank you for your prayers and kind comments. Tristan could not survive his injuries, he is with the Lord now & is no longer suffering. His family gave the greatest gift in allowing Tristan to be an organ donor. So many have been helped by their generosity & courage. Memorial services are today (Thurs,1/6/11 and Saturday 1/8/11). Please continue to hold his family in prayer through this difficult time.
