Prayers Please + Consider Becoming an Organ Donor

Dear Reader,

I'm not promising any bright, bouncy, cleaver, witty humor in this post.

I have a prayer request for you. Seriously.

It is for my friend HawkMan. I'm going to break the rule about code-names for him so you can pray for him better, plus you already know who he is if you read his page.

His name is Aiden. He is in the hospital right now, actually he is in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit). He is really sick, and the doctors don't really know what is wrong. He's been pucking up a lot of blood, he's hurled up over 1/2 a liter and you can see how small he is from the picture. He's been disoriented all day, he just remembered his name and birthday a couple minutes ago (I know because of facebook). Please pray for him and his family. He has a Mom, Dad and a little brother. Your prayers are appreciated.

Also, I encourage you to please register as an organ donor. I recently started following a blog about a boy named Mason who just got a heart transplant. HawkMan is a liver transplant patient. I am a bone marrow transplant patient (though you can donate that while you are living, it is a bit different). Please register, you could save a life, you could save somebody really awesome's life. Just ask my donor, he'll tell you how fabulous I am, just as I tell you how fabulous he is.

Wouldn't it be just so terrific if you died and your organs went to somebody just totally fabulous? Seriously, think about it.

Thank you! Have a nice day! Please do pray for Aiden,
Even if you don't really pray, please it isn't for you this time, its for Aiden,
Thank you, Miss E.

    Mary - thanks so much for sharing. I'm so busy in my office that I didn't know about Aiden being inpatient just down the street. I'm praying for him and his family, just as I always pray for you and yours.
    Hugs to you, mom, Rio, dad and the pooches -
