My nephew, Joseph, (age 6) has been sick for 15 days with an off and on fever. At first it presented as the stomach virus. Then he was fine for a couple days. Then the fever came back. It starts to rise in the mid-afternoon and hits 101 or 102 F by bedtime. Yesterday he awoke complaining his neck hurt when he looked up. My sister, Barbara, looked at his neck and found a lump the size of a golf ball along the mid-right side of his neck below his ear lobe. He is being tested for leukemia and mononucleosis.
My sister has taken her employer (a box store) to court for not paying workman's comp for an injury she sustained which has caused permanent neck/spinal damage. She can no longer live heavy objects nor lift her arm above her shoulder. She also has a heart problem which is made worse by her panic and depression.
The company her husband works for is moving 90 minutes away from where they live. He can commute, but they only have one car which has 150,000 miles on it. He is not making much money but it is a job!
They cannot afford the medical insurance co-pay provided by the company so have State insurance.
They lost their home to foreclosure so their credit is awful.
Please pray for Barbara, Mike, and little Joseph. They also have two daughters, Savannah & Brittany.
