URGENT- Prayers For a Friend

Good Morning. I decided to reach out through the blogosphere today in hopes of starting a prayer chain for our friend who is in desperate need of a heart transplant. His name is Don Lehr. He is the father of our daughter Lily's close friends Kate and Emma.

Lily with Don's lovely daughters, Emma and Kate.

He underwent open-heart surgery yesterday morning, to install a VAD. While, as of last night, it was functioning, sometime yesterday his organs began to fail and his white blood cell count is still elevated (from a staph infection he contracted last week). Don is a wonderful man- extremely funny and kind- a ray of sunshine. Even when I looked like a bloated hippopotamus last year, while pregnant with Seth, he always had the sweetest things to say about my growing belly.

Please pray that his body will regain the strength it needs to hold on for a heart transplant and that peace would surround his wife Sharon and his daughters.

Thank you.
