    My niece

    My sister recently had her 3rd and last kid, and she was born with an unusually large head. She is about 6 months old, and the doctor noticed something wasn't right with her. They ran some tests, and found out that there is a blood clot in a main vein in her neck which causes blood to get stuck inside of her head, and it swells up.

    She'll be having surgery on Monday, so for those of you who are religious (I am not), if you can please pray that she makes a full recovery.

    Even though I am not religious either, my thoughts are certainly with you, and I wish her a full and speedy recovery. Best wishes.

    I sure hope that everything goes well for her.
    Surgeons and surgical science are pretty doggone amazing these days so don't worry too much.
    Plus...you have got a lot of folks here that manage to pray some mighty powerful and effective prayers.

    Prayer sent. I hope the surgeon and hospital are connected with the Children's Miracle Network. Those folks do some amazing things with the skills that God grants them.

    Yes they are in fact connected to the CMN. The hospital that my niece is at is pitching in 10,000 dollars to help pay for the surgery, and my sister's insurance is paying I think another 8,000. Thanks everyone for your prayers and thoughts. I'll let you know how it went come Monday/Tuesday.
