Prayers for Alise
« on: July 03, 2009, 02:00:44 AM »
My stepmother is a nurse at a local children's hospital. Tonight she told me about a little girl who isn't quite 2 yet. She fell in a small pond in her backyard, and drowned, but was revived. Due to the lack of oxygen to her brain, she's on a trache tube, and is essentially a vegetable. Her parents are both Russian, and her uncle is an Orthodox priest in Virginia.

Please say a prayer for her, as it is not looking good for her.
