Pray for my 4 year old ( surgery )
5/11/2011 | Simple Simon

Posted on 05/11/2011 9:09:06 AM PDT by simplesimon

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 )

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 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!

“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!

Prayers up for you and your son.

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.
Amen.

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!)

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!

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.
