Little Gabe Needs Your Thoughts & Prayers

Hi There, my Shopaholic friends. It's going to be a long day here. I had planned a different post for today, but...

My cousin's son had an accident Saturday evening. He fell off a balcony, about 27 stairs, directly onto the ground below. He is only 3 years old, and his name is Gabe.

What we know about his injuries so far - he has a broken shoulder, and unfortunately is suffering internal bleeding on his lungs and his brain. Naturally he's in the hospital and is being watched very carefully. If the bleeding on the brain isn't better in a few hours, they will have to "go in". We're not sure yet exactly what this means, but it certainly isn't good.

My cousin and his family lived in Oregon for the past five years; they just moved back to Alabama less than 10 days ago. My aunt just met her youngest grandson for the first time when they arrived. Gabe is such a beautiful little boy, and a sweetheart.

If you're the praying type, please say a little prayer for him. If not, send him a positive thought. I really, really appreciate it; and I know his parents will too.

More later today, going to try to get a little rest now. I'm worried sick. :-(
