Sick Little Micah


Our adorable nephew Micah is in the hospital and is a very sick little boy. They are treating him for Kawasaki Disease (something I had NEVER heard of before) and we are all praying that he will get better soon. Kawasaki Disease can be a pretty serious condition that affects the heart and blood vessels and sounds like it has symptoms much like rheumatic fever. (Jennifer, I know you can sympathize.) They haven't done any tests on his heart yet, those happen tomorrow, so keep little Micah in your prayers that he will get better soon and that his heart will be healthy.
