We just received a call from our friend Laura letting us know that one of our China travelmates' daughter Molly is very sick. She has been in the hospital since Wednesday and hopefully can come home soon. Lolly went online and did her own research after the doctor's kept saying it was nothing...and it IS something. She has been diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome..a kidney disease. They are giving her proteins and so far she is not responding but they are hoping she will. Best case scenerio is she responds and is 100 % better...worst case is she will need a transplant. They are obviously so worried and devastated by this news and poor Lolly hasn't left the hospital since they arrived. As you can imagine they need all the prayers we can send up! Feel free to go to their website and leave a comment and please keep all of them in your thoughts and prayers. This is the weekend that our family is walking the Kidney Walk. We are walking it in honor of one of our best friends Gene Hayes who had a kidney transplant because he had nephrosis. This is the same thing that Molly has been diagnosed with. Now we will be walking in honor of both and praying extra hard during our walk for Molly. Please help with your prayers, thoughts, anything. Thank you!
