I'd like to ask for your prayers. My cousin Jason (two years younger than myself) is in the ICU battling complications from mono. I heard from my mom yesterday after she had received a call from my aunt. If my mom had gotten her facts straight, it seems that Jason had been self-medicating for two weeks not realizing that it was a case of mono. They finally rushed him to the emergency room when his temperature reached 105, he started having chills, and he began to have difficulty breathing. The doctor said that it was very serious and would have been fatal for somebody who was not in their prime. Thankfully, my cousin was very healthy and fit prior to being stricken down with mono. I've been reading on the different complications that stem from the disease and they're very scary. I just pray for healing and fast recovery. The doctor said that the treatment is predicted to be a very long process, but I know human will with the grace of God has surprised medical professionals many times in the past. This is what I'm hoping will happen. We can't be with him or his family physically since we're in another continent, but we're sending beams of love and prayers across the Pacific to them.
