Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Every mother's worst nightmare

The following came in my email this morning from my UNT prayer group. This is so frightening and has to be every parent's worst nightmare come true. Please add this boy and his family to your prayers. I don't know them, but I can't imagine the absolute torture this has to be for the family.

Jonathan Cooper is a lively 8-year-old young Christian boy. His entire family is a testimony of faith, hope, and love that touches all who know them. Jonathan loves to dance and sing music. Last month, Jonathan
played the role of Tiny Tim at Lakeland Baptist Church in Lewisville, Texas. "Ebenezer" is a Christian adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol", in which God uses Tiny Tim to bring Ebenezer Scrooge to repentance and ultimately a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jonathan played the role with such joy and enthusiasm. Last Thursday, December 30th, 2004, Jonathan was admitted to Children's Medical Center in Dallas via the emergency room with the assumption that he had a bad case of the flu or a stomach virus. He had no known health problems, but he could not keep anything down and he was getting dehydrated. Jonathan was admitted to ICU and was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1 on Thursday evening while in a coma. Early Friday morning, Jonathan had a massive stroke at the base of his skull in the brain stem. Based upon his MRI and CAT scan, the doctors have not been encouraging about his prognosis. He was placed on life support systems and has remained in a coma. The doctors said that Jonathan would be a vegetable for the rest of his life if he survives. Jonathan's parents have made the decision to allow God to make the next move in this ordeal. Their prayer is simply that God will heal Jonathan or take him home. Please pray for the entire family as our Father in Heaven works out His will.
