Family needs your prayers

On Sunday, my nephew, Derek (remember, the little Grobanite), woke up with a swell on his forehead and left eyelid. We thought it was mosquito bites, since some people are allergic to those.
At 12am my SIL took him to the emergency room because his forehead and eye were extremely swollen.
The doctor took his blood and said that he could have Chagas Disease. I don't know much about it, but basically. Swells on the eyelids is the first sign. Then, whatever it is, goes into the blood system, then into the brain and heart and eventually die. AND there is no treatment for it.

We're still waiting for the results on his blood test.

Please, could you please send prayers. This little boy is so sweet and just the thought of him having that is horrilble.


It's 3 in the morning and I can't go to sleep. I have way too much in my mind and it won't shut up. This isn't a good time to lose sleep. I'm already stressed out with some school work & my family. I have my speech later on today and finals start Friday.
