Urgent Prayers and a Knitting Request
A neighbor and friend of mine and her husband, just found a little over a week ago that their 7 year old son, Luke, has an inoperable brain stem tumor. He will be receiving 6 weeks of radiation along with an experimental treatment at a premier hospita
The family just moved into our neighborhood in July from another neighborhood in our town, and have twin daughters who turn 5 in September. They are members at our parish, and Luke’s Mom is very involved in the town’s Welcome Club. They’re a fun and wonderful family.
Each day I am brought to tears imagining what they all are going through. Luke is just one year older than our middle guy and the two boys play well together, it seems impossible to me that something so horrible could be happening to such a sweet boy… and could happen to any of our children… you never think about God calling one of your children to Him before you… and I hope that he has a miracle in His plan for Luke.
Please add them to your prayer lists!
For all my Knitting friends… I have a request.
I want to knit a blanket for Luke, but am seriously strapped for time right now due to our camp week coming up very soon, and the eyeball high pile of paperwork I have to get through…
I know I can knit a square or two, but a whole blanket is out of the question for me right now. If I am going to pull together a lap blanket for Luke to have in his drives to the hospital which is several hours away, and perhaps for during his radiation , I will need your help!
If you feel inclined to knit a soft acrylic blend (easy care) 8×8″ square in boy colors (blue, green, yellow red, whatever)… and can get it mailed to me by August 12th then please comment at the end of this post and I will email you my mailing address!
Luke Loves Baseball, Soccer, going Fishing , and doing Karate… I’ve seen loads of free dishcloth patterns out there in these themes that might make nice squares…
