Help my family with travel expenses

I'm not sure where to begin... today I received the worst call I could possibly think of, my little sister Sarah (she's the baby of our family and only 31), who has been mostly in the hospital since March of this year, is very sick in the ICU and the doctors do not think they can do anything more for her. :(  She has a servere infected chest absess and pneumonia and no antibiotic has helped with the infection.  She is too weak for surgery, which would involve removing part of her lung as that is where the infected absess is.  These are just some of the problems.

I am trying to fly out tomorrow from Orlando to Salt Lack City, Utah to see her.  My parents will be flying out of Chattanooga, TN.  These last minute flights are quite expensive.   And at the worst possible time, my cell phone was stolen last night, so now I'm going to have to purchase a prepaid phone because there is no way I can get it replaced before I leave.

More than anything, we need your prayers at this time.  Please pray for my sister Sarah that the pneumonia will let up so that she can breathe and sleep and that she will NOT have to have a ventilator put in!  Please pray for strength for her WONDERFUL hunsband who has been by her side every step of the way and I can only imagine what he's been through and is going through.  Please pray for safe travels as many family members from around the country fly in to see Sarah.

Also, please pray for my wife Melinda, she is not going to be able to make the trip, so she'll be staying home with our Dachshund Chocolate.

Anything you could afford to give to help us at this time would be greatly appreciated!  

1 John 5:11-12
And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

John 14:27 
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
