Prayer Needed
04.20.04

Posted on 03/16/2004 8:30:42 PM PST by mlmr

My middle daughter who is 11 starts testing for Cushing's Syndrome on Friday. She is so young and it is such a big disease. I am kicking myself for not recognizing it earlier. I thought she had some sort of refractory issue with TypeII diabetes. I had been thinking of bringing her to a pediatric endocrinologist for the past year. But her sysmptoms were too vague. They have blossemed.

I need Freeper prayers. There are few more even tempered and pleasant children than my middler. Always eager to help, generous, and kind, she is the daughter I always have hoped would take me in when I am in my dotage. I am so frightened for her.

One thing that I need to know, I keep on reading how people find the top medico in a particualar speciality on the Internet. I have been searching all day for top Cushing Syndrome people. How are they found? Through research papers?

When I was young my mother taught me the Hail Mary in her native tongue, Tuscan Italian. It is very similar to the Latin version.

Pinging some prayer warriors. I know they don't mind. ;-)

I googled a bit for you in case you hadn't, and came up with these:
http://www.umm.edu/endocrin/cushing.htm
http://www.findarticles.com/cf_dls/m3225/5_62/65174200/p1/article.jhtml
and this for Cushings help...on one of the pages here I noticed it said that Wednesday night is chat night....perhaps you'll be able to participate?
Here's the link to their home page
http://www.cushings-help.com/intro.htm

On another note, and as the parent of a child with a life-threatning disease I can assure you that there is support out there...and here for that matter. Perhaps I can pick up some info for you in Boston. I'm taking my son there to Children's Hospital to see some specialists. We'll fly there tomorrow and be at the hospital on Thursday. I'll see what information I can glean.

On another, more vital note...

Father, I come to You tonight on behalf of ml's lovely daughter. Lord, You formed this child and gave her a mother with a heart tender toward You. Touch this child now in Your own special way, Lord. We ask that Your will be done in her life. Keep this wonderful child close to Your heart. Touch her family as well, Lord, bless and comfort them. Give them wisdom and discernment. Bless each physician, nurse, and lab tech that participates in diagnoses and care. We'll most certainly give You all the glory, Lord, for You alone are worthy. In Jesus' precious and holy name, Amen.

Thank you for your beautiful prayer. I did see those sites and am planning a visit to the chat group tommorow. You are flying into Boston Children's tommorow? I pray that all will be well with your precious one. Lord, walk with us.

I don't know much about Cushings, but there was an article in one of the supermarket women's magazines about a woman who suffered with Cushings for years, visited many doctors and finally self diagnosed her problem and got help from an endocrinologist who specialized in Cushings(it was a positive article). I have heard that endocrinologists are not plentiful. You may have to travel, but keep searching and you will find the right doctor.

I've always believed in prayer, and when my son was diagnosed my belief doubled. We've got to keep these babies covered!

Thanks, isn't it nice to have the only God big enough to handle ALL our burdens and cares?!

You're welcome, trussell....any time.

Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.

I feel as though I have walked in your shoes, at least for a while. I have a son who has also been sick, and his symptoms were sometimes vague but also persistent. He is my baby and as sweet as they come. Sometimes I think God must just give these ones the best temperament because of what He knows that they will endure in their lifetimes.

Although I am in Ohio, I will call my children's endocrinologist tomorrow to see if they have any recommendations of referrals in your area. Mine don't have Cushing's, at least not that we know yet, but they do have other problems, so we see this doctor here about every three months. Hopefully this wonderful doctor can point us in a good direction for you and your child.

My heart and prayers go out to you. If my child was any example, there is a point where every day is such a challenge, and it can be very overwhelming. You've come to a good place (at FR) to ask for help. Surely the good Lord will help us help you to find some answers. God bless you!

Father God, we come before you as a group of believers, beseeching you to heal mlmr's daughter. Lord, you've allowed this to happen for reasons we don't know. Lord, we're afraid, but Lord, we KNOW that You have everything worked out already.

Please Father, guide all of the medical profession with their diagnosis of this precious child of yours. Give them the insight and the knowledge necessary to heal her.

Lord, I ask for peace to fall on mlmr, his wife, his daughter, and all of their family. Let them FEEL your comforting arms around them all day and all night.

You said where two or more are gathered in Your name, You would be in the midst of us. Lord, we're going on faith now that you ARE here with us.

In His Holy Name,
Amen

Yeah, I saw that you are in Maine. I think that you might want to check the Boston area for specialists, but start with your local doctors. My sister-in law lives in Stowe and travels to Boston for her specialists.

My husband went to high school at Fryeburg and college at UVM. He was just up in VT this week-end, visiting his sister who is very sick. I heard that New England was expecting more snow.

It's so hard when it is one of your kids who is sick. I'll keep you in my prayers. Let us know how things go with the doctors.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks that mlmr has placed her beloved daughter before the Throne of Grace and has asked her FReeper family to be in prayer. Gladly, Lord, we pray one for another, and, gladly, Lord, we bear one another's burdens. May the information on Cushing specialists already gleaned by these dear people be of help and comfort.

We look to You, O God, for a good report following the testing on Friday. Thank You that we are so fearfully and wonderfully made ... so extraordinarily complex that we defy the minds of man, yet Your touch can bring healing to the greatest afflictions. Be that touch for this mother's child, we pray, that she might grow with strength and health to fulfill the path on which she walks. Be of the greatest assurance to this family, for You are Creator God, Sovereign, and the Great Physician. To You be glory forever and ever, Amen ...

You and your daughter certainly have my prayers. One thing I've heard is when you are looking for an excellent doctor is to call a teaching hospital near you, like one associated with a university, and inquire there. I guess that's because the real cutting edge people are usually teaching also.
