Raising the Trumpet in Zion...

The Extended Table exists for a number of reasons, but its basic raison d'etre is for family. Essentially, a narrative to journal the happenings of what goes on in and around The Kingdom. Usually it is light and enjoyable today's post is not that. Today's post is an urgent call for aid. Since i have no idea of my complete readership, i'm sounding the trumpet for reinforcements.

This is Kash, he's my great nephew, the first born of my niece Kassie and her husband Kyle, they are good, good people and they are all in desperate need of the prayers of the righteous saints.

Kash has been a very healthy, active baby from his birth on May 29, a few weeks before Noah. But the other day, something went wrong. Now, i don't know all the medical terminology, nor does it matter. What i can tell you is that he has had a couple episodes of very elevated heart rate, and his throat swelling to the point of completely restricting his breathing. Seeing your child turn purple is a traumatic experience for anyone.

They are now at a hospital in Dallas specializing in pediatric care, but no one knows much at this point.

So, if the Lord puts it on your heart to pray for Kash, Kyle and Kassie, please do so as soon as you hear the call. I won't tell you what to pray for, i'm certain that the Lord is able to reveal that to you.

I'm certain of two things: 1)Yahweh hears the prayers of His righteous and faithful ones, and 2) HE. IS. ABLE. to deliver us from anything, ANYTHING.

Same here, as well. Let's hope and pray the pediatricians get it all figured out and resolved ASAP.
