Urgent Prayer Request

I have a prayer request for all of you. A friend of mine, Sarah, is expecting a little girl in early May. For the past several weeks/months she has been suffering from terrible, non-stop itchiness. Recently a friend of hers suggested that she may have intrahepetic cholastasis, which causes all of her current symptoms and is also very dangerous for her baby. The only thing is that this disease is extremely rare and is only found in one to two pregnant women out of one thousand. Not many doctors are very familiar with this disease and it takes up to weeks to diagnose. The blood tests are, in and of themselves, rather complicated. Sarah told me that if she doesn't deliver her baby by the 37th week, her baby has a very high risk of dying. So, if you could, please pray for her, safety for little baby Ella May, and that Sarah can get in to see a specialist as soon as possible.
