Our Friend, Emily

Tricia and I met Emily two summers ago...she and her family are from CA and vacation on the OBX for a few weeks each summer. Emily, like Tricia, is in her late 20's and living with CF. This past summer, we were able to spend several hours with Emily and her family, making life-long friends.

Now, Emily needs our encouragement and prayer. She's in the ICU at her local hospital with more than one infection, and she's not doing well. We would greatly appreciate if you'd pray for Emily today.

Thanks.

Nate

Thanks Nate. I'm a friend of Emily's (she directed me to your story here a few years ago - I have been through multiple boxes of tissue reading your blog, i love it!) and I think your story is an amazing example of God's grace and I'm praying for the same now for Emily.

Thanks for the word on Emily. I will certainly be praying for her and also Eva. Just read her blog that she is not doing well, either. The pictures of Gwyneth and her potty are so cute.
