A Request for Andrew - Can you help?

Update:  Andrew has been admitted to the hospital.  Please continue to pray for him and his parents.  If you can leave them a message on their Caring Bridge site (link below) it would be much appreciated. 

A few of you might remember that I requested prayers for Andrew, the nephew of a friend of ours, who has been diagnosed with multiple brain tumors.  This picture is from his Caring Bridge site.  If you would like to read Andrew's story and leave a message for his family, I know they would appreciate it so much. 

Andrew is 10 years old and loves baseball more than anything.  He has now lost all his hair due to the chemo treatments.  We weren't sure how comfortable Andrew's family would be putting his information out here in cyberspace but Andrew's aunt said he is going through a particularly difficult time right now and is in need of  encouragement. 

I know that cardmakers are the most wonderful encouragers!  If you have a moment, could you  please send Andrew a card?  It would mean so much to his family and I know it would lift his spirits. 

Here is Andrew's address: 
                                                                Andrew Wernicke

                                                               19445 Benington Drive
                                                               Brookfield, WI 53045

I had thought about sending him a baseball inspired card and then decided to send this one hoping it would bring a smile to his face. 

I used an EK Success punch for my waves and popped them up on dimensionals so the fishes could jump in and out of them.   I cut the fish out and then coated them with Crystal Effects to give them shine and dimension.  My sentiment is computer generated.  This is for the CAS77 Red fish, Blue fish challenge on SCS.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
