Please pray for my friend Melissa and her sweet family.

Caring Bridge site for Melissa Snow

She recently had a sweet baby boy after six daughters. Last Sunday she woke up from a nap with a numb arm and everyone suspected stroke. It turned out to be a tumor in her temporal lobe. She is having multiple seizures, and she is losing the use of her limbs. She is unable to nurse or hold her sweet new baby. The tumor is inoperable due to a main artery running through it, and doctors say radiation is no longer an option. They are consulting with a top neurosurgeon today, and will basically follow his advice. Things do not look hopeful. A miracle is needed.

I was looking forward to hearing her adventures on raising a boy after all those girls. It breaks my heart to think of her never getting to watch her sweet prince grow up... and of him not knowing his very special mama. Please pray for a miracle.
