every tree

This is Caleb! Caleb is a miracle baby born to my sweet friends Karen and Brian. 
Karen, Caleb's momma, is one of my sweet friends/roommates from college. She waited for years to have a baby, and the Lord has blessed her with this sweet little man. 

 Earlier this week Caleb had his blood taken for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). Karen and Brian were told that it would only take one week to get the results back, but have now been told that it will take 6 weeks.  That is a long time to wait to hear this sort of news.
I am asking you to join me in praying for Caleb.

Please pray, not only that he doesn't have SMA, but that God would strengthen and heal Caleb.  We also pray that God will give his pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, physical therapists, occupational therapist, and nurses wisdom in caring for him.  

Also pray that God would give his Mom and Dad strength and courage.

Karen and Brian have had this verse brought to mind. 

Cypress trees will grow where now there are briers; 
      myrtle trees will come up in place of thorns. 
   This will be a sign that will last forever, 
      a reminder of what I, the Lord, have done.
                 Isaiah 55:13

Please feel free to re-post this and share with people so they can join us in praying BIG prayers to a BIG God.
