Default Prayers for Travis Johnson's daughter

I put this up on the Chron blog but figured I'd spread the word here because he asked for prayer help.

Quote:
According to Travis Johnson's twitter page @Trapj99 (confirmed by the Chargers), his daughter Zoe suffered a stroke and currently is on a ventilator. From his tweets:

Jan 24th: I have always known when praises go up blessings come down so please send your praises and your prayers up for my daughter zoe who is in the fight of her life thank you. Shalom

Jan 25th: she is not letting this stroke and everything else get the best of her im so proud to be her Daddy

Jan 27th: i am bout to go crazy my heart hurts on a level never matched by anything in the world my daughter had her second stroke today and the docs have no answer im tryin not to lose it

Jan 29th: thank everyone for the prayers and keep praying and tweet to everybody about praying for her cause he answering our prayers little at a time

Jan 31st: zoe is 4 she will be 5 in july

Like Johnson, I also believe in the power of prayer. If you do too, please keep him and his family in your prayers. And if you do the twitter thing, send him some supportive tweets from Texan fans. During his time as a Texan, he was kind to my family and me, and I'd like to return the favor. He's a funny guy and was always good for a quote. It didn't work out for him as a Texan, but I hope the best for him both professionally and personally.

Lots of profoundly sad things in the world, but the nice things about prayers is that there isn't a limit on the ones you can make. I sometimes think that the bad that happens in the world is a reminder that we as individuals are not islands. That when bad things happen, we need to reach out to others for help, strength and guidance even though asking for help is uncomfortable and hard.

Blessings to all, and if you have kids, give them an extra squeeze today.

If you read his entire Twitter page, it just hurts your heart.

Bad when you are ill.

Worse when a family member is ill.

But I can't imagine anything worse than when a small child is ill because you want to take away the pain and you can't.

Makes you want to wrap your kiddos up with bubble wrap. Too many scary things in the world that you can't protect your kids from.

Default Pray for TJ and his Daughter Zoe

I just read TC's blog and found this out. Surprised she hadn't posted it here yet.

Anywho, Travis Johnson rarely received much love around these boards, but he needs our help.

Quote:

I would be dying inside if it were my daughter. My thoughts and prayers go out to TJ and his family.

Default Re: Prayers for Travis Johnson's daughter

A stroke at any age is a terrible event. In a 5-year-old, it may be incomprehensible to most. Sickle Cell Anemia is one of the most likely underlying conditions that you would think of in an Afro-American child. If this is indeed the cause, these children have 10% chance of stroke. They are greater than 200 times more likely to experience a stroke than those children without the disease. And their high risk essentially extends to age 18.

Taking care of a seriously ill child is one of the most draining and difficult tasks a parent can ever face. My thoughts and prayers go out for his daughter's recovery and he and his family's continued strength emotionally, physically and spiritually throughout this ordeal.

That is SO sad. It's hard to think of anything that could be worse than something like this happening to your little kid. It really puts things in perspective and hope the Johnson family gets through this okay.

As others have said..I couldn't imagine this happening to my 2 year old or 8 mos old. They are the biggest blessings I've ever received. My prayers go out to he, his little girl and family.

Positive thoughts and vibes for TJ and Zoe. I'm absolutely hopelessly in love with my little nieces, who are 2, 4, and 6. I can't even imagine how much of a disaster I would be if something happened to one of them... and they're not even my daughters - so this is something I can't even begin to think about.

Travis and his family have had more than their share of recent emotional events. Travis, I believe, lost his grandfather sometime within the past 2 weeks.
