My 10 year old Granddaughter Isabella has a bad infection in her leg. It came on very suddenly! One of her medications methotrexate (for her Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) causes a reduced white blood cell count, which makes Isabella much more susceptible to infection. Most children would be able to fight this infection off, but not Isabella. They are fearful that the infection may have already gone into the bone.
Friday morning she will have emergency surgery..
I ask that you PLEASE say a pray for Isabella!
God I ask you please watch over Isabella tomorrow..

Dear Mary, I've already said a prayer for sweet Isabella & you & her mom. She will be in God's hands & He will watch over her & take care of her. Try to get some rest so you can help take care of her! She will be up & running before you know it.

You will continue to be in my thoughts & prayers.
