Join me in praying for the Links!

Meet Mr. Benjiman “Thatcher” Link. He is the adorable son of my precious friend Jessie. Born July 28, 2010 to join his big sister Amelia who was 18 months old at the time, this precious boy was diagnosed with biliary atresia at 2 months old. Today he will have a liver transplant at 8 months old and his mom is his living donor. I have been praying on their behalf since September when Jessie called me with the news that changed their life forever and am thankful that today he is able to have the surgery that will save his life! They are at Childrens Hospital of Pittsburg for the surgery, which is a very long way from their precious daughter in Nashville. Will you please join me in praying for this sweet family?

-Pray for Jessie as she has part of her liver removed and the recovery that will take place the next 3 months.
-Pray for Thatcher's little body, that it will accept this new liver with no problems and in the days and weeks to come that he will recovery quickly.
-Pray for BJ who will be taking care of his wife and son as they recover
-Pray for all the doctors and nurses involved, as doing a transplant on an 8 month old is rarely done and therefore more difficult
-Pray for Amelia who will be without her Mommy, Daddy and brother for 3 months and the family that is taking care of her
-Pray that God would be glorified no matter the outcome and that this family would have His peace through it all
Love you Jessie!!! You are such a strong woman and I have been inspired by your faith and perseverance through this entire situation! I promise to be one of your biggest prayer partners!!!
(This was us back in November 08 when she was pregnant with Amelia and I was pregnant with Griffin)

Lindsey, I can't believe I'm just now seeing your post! I'm behind on reading all my usual blogs. I appreciate your prayers and this post calling for more. If I wasn't before, I am truly a believer in the power of prayer. Thatcher is doing remarkably. Everytime someone comments on his progress, I find myself giving all credit to the good Lord and the power of prayer. I want to also thank you for your help with my blog. I always enjoy reading yours and it inspired me to make one for our family. Love you lady!
