Hey friends, those of you who are praying people, I'd like to ask you to pray for someone I love very much. My cousin, who is in her mid-teens, has RSD (also known as complex regional pain syndrom). It is a very rare, but serious disease. I won't go into detail about that, but you can click the link if you want to know more about it. Anyway, the past year or so they had gotten the RSD under control for the most part, and she was doing really well. However, it seems that it has left her with a serious eating disorder. She is now in the hospital once again. She is down to 80 lbs, and they are trying to get her stabilized. They can't give her a feeding tube because it brings on the symptoms of the RSD (basically, SEVERE pain...as in, if a breeze blows across her body, she screams in pain). Please keep her in your prayers, she has been through so much over the past few years from this disease. She also has been left nearly (for awhile totally) legally blind from this. I know she can use all the prayer she can get! Thanks.
