Today I get a "recorded message" from my son's school that the children have ALL been sent home with VERY IMPORTANT note in their backpacks and that it is VERY IMPORTANT that we read this note. One problem . . . my son has been home since Tuesday, so I had no idea what they were talking about. In my attempts to get in touch with other moms, I don't get any answers because it's Soccer night and no one was home yet. Finally got in touch with a friend about an hour later and it was NOT good news.
A little girl in first grade passed away last night from the H1-N1 flu.
Upon further research online and local newspaper website; Heaven was only 6 years old and was perfectly healthy until October 8th when she came down with it. She has a brother that is in the 3rd grade that is also ill right now.
Please join me in praying for this family:
Father God I ask that you encompass Heaven's family with your love and compassion. We lift up her brother to your healing hand. Father please help him to deal with his sister's death. Heal this family, Lord, hearts and bodies. Show us in their comunity how we can help the family during this time of grief. ~Amen
