miracle monday...well, how about "asking for a miracle" monday

i know, today is a day when we tell about miracles we have witnessed. i have seen miracles happen after a community prays. i could give examples, but instead i would like to ask for some help.
i was friends with joe in high school. in fact, he was one of the few people that didn't treat me any different after i found out i was pregnant with alex. he and i had been "close" our freshman year, and became friends again senior year. he is one of the strongest people i have ever met, and truly one of the coolest.
anyway, we drifted apart after high school. he went to college, and i began my family, but i still think of him as a friend and wish nothing but the best for him and his family.
this is where you all come in...his wife has a rare form of leukemia that usually children get. she has had her second bone marrow transplant, and it isn't really working. in fact the doctors have told her any treatment she receives will only be to buy her more time, not for a cure. she is young...she is a mom of a young child...and a wife. she has a great heart and awesome sense of humor...i have never met her, and yet, i hope you all will join me in praying for her and her family. even if her miracle is just some more quality time with her husband and son, please pray for them!
that being said, here is her caring bridge site. please visit it. you will see what a wonderfully strong woman she is.
