Skip to comments.Pray for my 4 year old ( surgery )

Please forgive me if doing this incorrectly. This is my very first "thread" to Free Republic. I know very well the power of prayer so I come to my fellow Freepers to join in.
My four year old son has a slew of vision problems and has already had 2 eye surgeries ( on his left eye ) to remove a cataract at 6 months old, an MRI on his brain a few weeks after that and then at 3 years and one week old, he had another surgery to remove scar tissue in his lens capsule and to implant an intraocular lens.
A couple of weeks ago he had another eye movement recording to see where they should move some of his eye muscles to help correct his "null" point ( or focal point ) and to correct his head turn.
The report from the EMR was not written and given to his regular surgeon but he said, at our appointment yesterday at Childrens Hopsital that he's ready at any time to do this surgery but may recommend me to the worlds best pediatric ophthalmology surgeon for either just a second opinion or to do the surgery.No big deal if he does because it's only a 2 hour drive one way...
I know this got long but wanted to give some back ground but I'd surely appreciate any prayers you could send up for my child and his surgeon.
Thank you all in advance ~
(If this is in the wrong "spot" could someone let me know how to move it to a different location and which location )
Prayer for your little boy. Keep us posted on his recovery.
lots of hugs too you too
You posted correctly, and you and your young one are in my prayers.
It sounds like you are in good hands. I am always encouraged when a doctor brings a more experienced physician and doesn’t pretend to know it all.
Prayers have been sent for your little guy!
prayers and hugs!
God bless your son...and you.
Prayers up...I know personally the pain of having one of your little ones be sick, having lost a 3 yr old to cancer in 1974. You would much rather it be you than them. Just know that God is in control and He loves your child even more than you do!
Done. God bless you all.
Prayers for your son’s health.
Wow wee. Thank you all so very very much for the prayers. I am so humbled and so very close to tears~!
Awwww.....prayers for your little angel. So sorry for what you are going through as a family,and what your little boy is going through.May God’s loving,healing grace touch and protect you and your little one.
Prayers being sent! BTW, please don’t ever apologize for asking for prayers and help for your child, it proves you are a good parent.
Prayers up for your little one!
Prayers up for you and your son today at our Adoration Chappel.
I have prayed for your son. May God comfort you through this time.
“The Blessings of Patience and Comfort”
Realizing my helplessness,
I’m asking God if He will bless
The thoughts you think and all you do
So these dark hours you’re passing through
Will lose their grave anxiety
And only deep tranquility
Will fill your mind and help impart
New strength and courage to your heart.
So take the Savior’s loving hand
And do not try to understand -
Just let Him lead you where He will
Through pastures green and waters still,
And though the way ahead seems steep,
Be not afraid for He will keep
Tender watch through night and day,
And He will hear each prayer you pray.
So place yourself in His loving care
And He will gladly help you bear
Whatever lies ahead of you
For there is nothing God can’t do...
So I commend you into God’s care,
And each day I will say a prayer
That you will feel His presence near
To help dissolve your every fear.

When prayers go up, blessings come down.
May the Lord’s healing hands hold you all closely.
Please let us know how it all turns out. The FReeper Family is awesome when it joins in prayer for one of our own.
Prayers sent for your little one. While this is not easy for either of you now, if this surgery is a success, think of how great this will be for his functioning later. Definitely go see the “best” ophthalmologist and get that 2nd opinion.
Good luck to you!
Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Will be praying for your son.
You’ve come to the right spot—your many friends at FR are prayer warriors. I join them with my humble prayers for your
sweet child, for your doctors and those who will care for him, and of course, for you and your family.
Our God is great; our God is good. Bless you.
Praying for you, your son, and your family. God bless you.
Father God, heal this little boy of all eye problems. I ask in Jesus name for healthy tissue in both eyes and perfect vision. In Jesus name Amen!!!
We’ll be happy to, tonight. God bless.
Prayers for your and your son.
Prayers up for your boy, and for you and the whole family.
Your post is fine. Prayers being said now for your son. Jesus loves children and he loves your son very much.
Prayers offered. I have a son who will be undergoing surgery in the next little while. Each time I think of it, I’ll pray for your little boy.
May God bless your little boy and heal him with a shower of grace.
Please forgive me if doing this incorrectly...
There is NEVER an incorrect way to ask for prayers. Thanks for asking. You got ‘em.
Already said a prayer for him. Please keep me posted if it isn’t too much trouble. God bless you and your family.
You have done well, posting padawon.
A prayer is on the way.
Lord we all pray for you your child to be healed and blessed.
Praying for your little one.
Prayers for your boy!
I work for a Pediatric Ophthalmologist. It sounds like the next surgery will be eye muscle surgery. Eye muscle surgery is nowhere near as serious as the cataract and IOL implant surgery your son already went through. Eye muscle surgery is almost sheer mathematics...and you should have a great result.
Hang in there...we are all pulling for you and your son!
Prayers for you all - think good thoughts
I believe God has a beautiful plan for your little boy’s life and I have prayed for total healing to come from this surgery. I prayed also for you, that your anxiety will turn to peace about this procedure if it goes forward.
Praying for your family.
My whole families prayers for you precious little man.Lord hear our prayer.
