The Power of Prayer

Dear Friends,
Nate Savieo is a great friend of my family! He has been dating my cousin for over a year now and has become like another member of our family. Nate is an amazing young man. He is a stellar athlete, with a great personality and much love and care for his family, friends, and for my precious cousin, Katie Jo.

This past weekend Nate appeared to have the flu. He was showing many flu like symptoms such as vomitting. Yesterday (Tuesday) Nate was rushed to the hospital. He was then admitted to the ICU where he has had two surgeries and is now in a medically induced coma. It appears that Nate has a staph infection of some sort, but the doctors are still unsure. Right now, he is going through kidney dialysis, and we are unsure of the next steps. He has been in cardiac arrest twice.

I ask you, friends near and far, to pray for Nate, his family, and ours. We pray that God will place his healing hands on Nate. No matter how long it takes, we all want him to have a positive recovery. Please pray that God's will will be done. That the doctor's are given the wisdom and patience to work with this precious young man and the infection that is taking over his body. Please pray that God will give his family and friends the peace they need right now and the confidence to put this situation in His hands; as well all know, He is in control.

Thank you for your prayers!

Here is Nate, doing what he loves, playing sports!!!

Here is Nate with another thing he loves, Katie Jo :)

We LOVE you, Nate. Stay strong, bud!
