Prayers for Avery

Today, my thoughts and prayers are with my friend, Nicky (My Crazy Normal Life). The next 48 hours are going to be critical for her young son, Avery. Avery and his older brother, Isaiah, have a condition known as mitochondrial disease (or "mito"). It is a very unpredictable and progressive disease which very often robs parents of their children before adulthood. It is one of the conditions that Zay underwent testing. Avery's little body is fighting infection.

Avery was coded and intubated yesterday. He is resting comfortably now on the ventilator. My prayers are that Nicky and her husband will feel enveloped by the love and support from their friends and family. That God will comfort them...and give them renewed strength and wisdom.
