Dear blog stalkers and occasional readers alike,
I am asking tonight for your prayers and thoughts to be directed at one very special little man. I have "known" Landon since he was born, his mom and I were on a message board together for babies due in July 05. Landon was born May 12th, and his battle began right away. He has spent most of his close to 4 years in and out of the hospital, and was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease. I don't know all the ins and outs of his diagnosis, but I do know Landon's journey has not been full of ease. However, he is a fighter who always has a smile on his face. This past January, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Landon and his family on his make-a-wish trip to Disney, where I was able to take a few photos for them. My life is better for having met Landon, and I know many others have been equally touched by this very special little boy and his sweet family. Tonight, Landon is very sick. He's battling the flu, and several different infections and will be going back to the PICU. He's spent quite a lot of time there lately, and had just gone home for a few days before he was re-admitted to the hospital. Please pray for Landon. His O2 sats are low and his heartrate is high, both signs that his body is working too hard. He has come through things like this before with flying colors, but any thoughts his way will help!

I'm in tears seeing Landon's gorgeous eyes and his sweet smile. He is always in my prayers as is his whole family. I am so glad you were able to capture some of their time in Disney for them.
