Dear blogging friends :
I would like to ask all of you to pray for a fellow rower friend of my son's. Blake was diagnosed with necrotizing fascitis more than a week ago. Blake was a sophomore when my son was a senior varsity rower ... Blake is now a senior and one of the best rowers in the state of Ohio. This past week due to this diagnosis, both of his legs were amputated due to this strep -like bacteria. He was given less than 20% chance to live but miraculously today that has increased to 75%. He only learned of the loss of his legs yesterday. He has a long painful road ahead of him. Would you pray for him and his family .. for healing, strength and much courage as he faces the many surgeries and life changes ahead. Thank you so much. I know his family would be so grateful .
