Praying For Devon...  
So Sunday I found out that my little cousin (who is 13-14) was unconscious in the hospital and doctors said if she didn't make it through the next 48 hours, she might die. Later that same day we find out that she might go Sunday night. Devon(my little cousin) was in St. Louis, with her mom Sis. So my family and I are waiting here in Topeka for some news on her condition. Noone can get ahold of Sis. Finally we have got ahold of Sis today.

Now the thing with Devon is she has Cystic Fibrosis. She had JUST had a double lung transplant. And the reason she was in St. Louis in the first place was because she was there for a check-up. The doctors found out today what was wrong with her. Her body had thought her new lungs were a disease. So her body was attacking her lungs. So the doctors are putting her on some meds to try to prevent this. The process, from what I understand is very painful, so they are keeping her asleep through this. There is a 70% chance of her making it.

The prayers are working. I don't think I have gone a minute without saying a little prayer for Devon. I may not see her much, but I love her all the same. My sister basically raised her when she was a baby. And I was there with her the whole time.

I am still praying she makes it through the medications. I know she will. She is tough.

So now I have a request...
...Please keep her in your prayers and thoughts. She needs all the help she can get right now.
Thanks soo much!!

So she has had a transplant? That's good.
Jamie has had a couple similar episodes with her kidney transplant. It required a change in her anti-rejection drugs.
I hope Devon is doing better!!
