Pray, pray, pray... please

I have 4 friends in desperate need of your prayer right now. 3 of them have Cystic Fibrosis, and one has a rare lung disease.

Tricia will be getting another biopsy done to find out how bad her lymphoma has gotten. She has been in treatment for it, but the treatment didn't work. The docs are trying to figure out a new course of treatment for her after they do an open-lung biopsy to get a sample.

Rachael has a rare lung disease, and therefore, cannot be transplant in England where she lives. The docs thinks she's too high risk, and have never dealt with this type of lung disease before. She is trying to raise the money to come to the U.S. for a transplant. Please pray that she will be able to raise the funds to pay for it, and that her health will hold up until she is able to get new lungs.

My friend Nina from Arizona is very sick and on a ventilator now. She vomited just after she was intubated, and she aspirated. This is really hard on healthy lungs, and much, much worse for infected CF lungs. The last I heard, she wasn't doing as well as they had hoped.

I have another friend who doesn't want to be mentioned. This friend doesn't want everyone knowing how sick she is, so I'm just going to ask you to say a prayer for a very sick girl with Cystic Fibrosis. God knows who you are talking about. :)

Thanks guys for all of your thoughts, prayers and good hearts!!!
