When all you can do is pray

Six-year-old Sydney is the little sister of my nieces' good friend and classmate. She has been battling a type of leukemia since May, enduring several rounds of chemotherapy and lung surgery in the process.

This afternoon, the doctors gave the family devastating news. Three think it's time to make her comfortable and prepare for her death. The head doctor thinks they should try the bone marrow transplant, if the donor can arrive in time.

After prayer and counseling, Sydney's family has decided to try for the transplant. They have asked for prayers for a miracle for Sydney.

And so, we pray. . .
