I'd like you to meet Gabe!

I'd like you to meet Gabe - he is the one going into the CT Scanner. Gabe is 4 and a big boy! He never fussed, had his chin strapped down and laid perfectly still - no sedation! Thats his daddy holding a toy that Gabe could see as he went into the scanner, a major unknown for Gabe. On the other side of the scanner was Gabe's mom, he could hear her voice, she was reading a story.

Gabe was prepared for this 'unknown' - he was not afraid. He understood people were praying, but more importantly mom and dad were there, he knew that - and trusted them.

Gabe has been getting ill every couple of weeks and running high temps, the CT Scan will hopefully help solve the mysteries. Please pray for the family and stop by their blog to give an encouraging word.

We all face the unknown at times, the solution? Child like faith. Our Heavenly Father is watching over us.

Update - Thursday May 21, 2009: Gabe has a sinus infection which they will treat with antibiotics - keep him still in your prayers.

I will check out Gabe's family blog. I will certainly pray, because where there is prayer, there is hope.

Be blessed.

Papa, I tried to leave a comment but for some reason I got rejected. I did say a prayer and they look to be a brave and tender family. Thanks for sharing. Said a prayer.

Love you,

Crossview - thanks for your prayers. I got an email this afternoon from Gabe's mom that he is feeling somewhat better - has the flu. This is a very special family.
