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

    Sad News

    I will keep their family in my prayers.

    The Human side of NFL players is something we often forget.

    Wow, that's terrible. I have a 5 year old daughter that I am absolutely over the moon for, I would be a pile of shambles if I was in TJ's place. Prayers already sent.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Very tough to not feel for TJ and his family. Prayers for Zoe and the rest of the Johnson 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.

    I can't imagine the pain he must be going through. I have a daughter that will soon be turning 7 and I would be a wreck if something like this happened to her. My thoughts and prayers will be with Zoe and TJ.

    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.

    Even though I rag on him that's too bad.
