I need a prayer for a friend....

She, her husband, and 3 children are on vacation. The baby (about 16 months) came down with a severe case of the croup. She is in the hospital and her breathing is so labored they won't release her.

Please say an extra prayer for Olivia. Thanks guys!

Thank you so much Dove, GB, Maidrite, kadesma, pdswife, texasgirl, mrsmac, and middie. I really appreciate it. My son had it too - quite scary!!! Everyone is on edge because they won't let her leave the hospital. She's a cutie too!!!

GB - this is the little girl that is learning sign language so she can communicate instead of screaming!!! AND she does great with it.
