    Guys, this is something I never thought I'd be posting. My best friend's 12 year old daughter (who has been excelling in a rock camp/rock school with her bass lessons and even playing with the older kids b/c she was advancing so well) is in the ICU. They discovered a brain tumor last week when looking into her recent sinus troubles and she is having surgery tomorrow. We should have alot more info tomorrow after surgery. They are in Texas, so I'm waiting to hear more, but as you can imagine her parents are struggling to hold it together. I just spoke with her last Tuesday and she was fine. For all you who believe in the power of prayer please send some her way tonight and tomorrow. I wish I could be there for support but my wife has some tests and a possible minor procedure this week, not to mention we may need to evacuate for Hurricane Ike. At this point I figure any prayers or even positive thoughts heading her way to Austin, TX can only help. The great news is that the doctor is supposedly one of the best in the country, so maybe their relocating after Katrina all has some type of greater purpose.
    Thanks for everyone's prayers and thoughts, she's a great kid.
     
  2. I'll definitely send prayers out! Please keep us updated.

    Best of luck to the young rocker, but also to your wife and your family on both the medical and weather fronts.

    How sad. You know we'll all be praying for her and her family.
     
  6. I'll be praying. That's a terrible thing for a young kid and her loving family to be going through.

  18. We'll keep her in our prayers.
    It saddens me so much when youngsters
    have to deal with difficulties such as this.
    It just isn't fair.

    Prayers from Columbus, Ohio. May God grant her good health and a speedy recovery.
     
  20. Im not one for prayers but I wish her all the best and hope she recovers. No one should have to go through stuff like this, certainly not at such a young age.
