HORRIBLE NEWS - Please pray.

I don't quite know how to say this. But we have some very bad news. My precious little boy, Ian, has a brain tumor. He acted a little sick on Wednesday, and grew increasingly ill on Thursday. By Thursday night, he was lethargic and just acted "off". I knew something was wrong. I then noticed that his "soft spot" was bulging, and we took him to urgent care. They transported him by ambulance to an excellent children's hospital, where a CT scan showed a very large mass on his brain. An MRI was done, and the neuro surgeon did immediate emergency surgery. He has a tumor that is the size of 2/3 of his brain. They were able to remove half of it in surgery, but the prognosis is not good. The tumor has grown "tentacles" into Ian's brain. I am absolutely heartbroken and beside myself. It seems like a bad dream. I feel like someone kicked me in the chest, and I just want to die. Please, please, pray for my little boy. Pray for the best outcome, even if that means that he dies, rather than lives as a vegetable. Oh God...I can't believe this.

Is this a maglinant brain tumor?  I can't imagine that this wasn't something that would have been seen on an u/s when you were still pregnant, but that's water over the bridge now.

Everyone that is reading this thread, please tell all your friends to pray.  Call your churches and put baby Ian on every prayer list that is possible.  I really do believe that a prayer for an innocent child, is heard before all others.  Especially a mother's prayers for her child.  There is power in prayer, Tricia.

Wth every breath I have in my body, my prayers will be said without stopping.  I will put your son on a prayer list here near my home.  God tells us, that when two or more people come together in prayer, it shall be heard.

I am sure that the mother's will join together to pray for you and your strength.  Lord have mercy on this precious child and heal him, in Jesus name.  You have the power Lord and we call upon you to work miracles in this baby's life. Send your warring angels down from heaven to do battle with this tumor.  Protect little Ian from pain and illness....bath him in your protective light and bring him fully back to good health.

I do not mean to offend those that do not use prayer in their lives.  For so many of us, we only find our strength through prayer.  

Hear our pleas and cries, oh Lord, for Ian's safe recovery from all that effects him.  We expect a miracle.

Surrounding you all with healing light from above.

I am so very sorry that you guys have to go thru this.  You need to pray for strength & have FAITH that the Lord will be w/you & baby Ian & take care of all of you during this trial in your lives.
We just don't always understand why we have suffering, but w/out it, we wouldn't know true happiness.
I hope & pray that baby Ian will have a speedy & full recovery.

You hang in there, it's ok to be scared & even angry, your human ;-/
xxxxxxxx & BIG O for Ian ;0)
