Wasn't sure if this thread is appropriate, but there's a 17 day old boy who could use prayers from all faiths. He is in a slow downward spiral according to his doctors. He was born extremely prematurely and has been in the NICU since birth.

It's my friend's nephew. He weighed less than two pounds at birth. It's been touch and go since the first day, and the doctors are starting to run out of options.

I'm not particularly religious, but am sending positive vibes. Where there is life, there is hope.
