Prayers, please. *updated*

*see update at the bottom*

My niece Tara is in need of your prayers.  She blogged about having an abscess that was growing and that she was going to the doctor.  You can read it here.  As it turns out it is a Flesh Eating Bacteria and they have taken her into surgery.  From my limited information, there is a 50/50 chance of survival. 
I know that my God is a good God and will heal her.  James 5:15 says "And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up."
Just to give you a little back info on who you are praying for... she is 26 years old and has been married for 9 years, has 3 beautiful little girls.  She has a pure heart for God and just needs more prayers lifted up in her name and for her family.
Thank you and I will keep you posted with more info.

*update*

They called and said that during surgery the doctors found out it was NOT Flesh Eating Bacteria!  Praise God!  I dont know what it was, but they removed several infected places, drained some and called it good.  She was still in ICU overnight and "not out of the woods" yet, but I have full faith that she is healed.  THANK YOU for your prayers!

I'm praying for her still. I do hope they find out the cause. I know how scared everyone must be.
