View Full Version : Prayers for my Little Man :-(

October 15th, 2013, 03:48 AM
I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but some heartfelt prayers would be greatly appreciated.

On Friday I took my 10yr old autistic son to a plastic surgeon in the city. Daniel has had a nasty birthmark on his leg since he was born and doctors have told me for years to wait til he's at least 10 to have it removed. It's in the middle of his shin and is dark bluish purple and all raised and dry. He's very protective of it as its very sensitive, and the few times its been knocked its bled for hours. I knew removal would involve a skin graft and large scar, and Daniel being the way he is I knew it would be difficult.

Today I had to take him for a battery of blood tests which was extremely traumatic for him, especially since they couldn't find a vein and had to do both arms. I've now been told what's on his leg isn't a birthmark, it's a vascular tumour, and highly indicative that he'll have more on his internal organs, and a high chance he may be prone to heart problems. I can't even spell the name of the syndrome, but my heart is breaking for a little guy who life's in his own happy little world and doesn't deserve serious health problems. They will advise me shortly of a date to have his whole body scanned with an MRI under general anesthetic, and will then know how bad.

Please pray for my little man, he's come so far and conquered so much. Oh for a genie in a bottle right now :-(

With love, Pami

Oh Pami. I'm sorry to hear that. I really hope the scan shows it's only on his leg. We're praying for you and your son.

October 15th, 2013, 04:37 AM
Prayers that the scan doesn't show any other tumors and the one on his leg gets taken care of without too much stress to your dear son.

October 15th, 2013, 04:45 AM
I will most certainly pray for him and the best outcome. Poor baby, I just don't understand why some seem to have so many struggles. Please keep us posted.

Hi Pami
My Dear Daddy had one of these birthmarks. I can sure pray with you. I am right this very minute, dearest girl.

Sure wish I knew where my genie went to. I think I lost her some years back. Here's an extra hug, an extra prayer and a special smile for you and Daniel.

Added him to my prayer list......

October 15th, 2013, 12:17 PM
Pami.. I am so sorry to hear this awful news... Of course, I will pray for your son...

I have a grandson who has Asperger's,... My sister's youngest also. Has Asperger's, and her daughter 's oldest (7) son is a non-verbal Aitistic child... I'm pretty sure there are a couple more people in my family who are somewhere on the spectrum... So, I have an idea of how difficult this is for your child, and for you....

I will pray that the doctors and other caregivers will be given the grace to do their jobs in the best way possible... And grace for you to get through the days ahead... God bless...

October 15th, 2013, 01:18 PM
You are both in my prayers...

October 15th, 2013, 02:04 PM
May I add my prayers to all those listed for you, for dear sweet Daniel, for the Drs and surgeons, for all involved in any way. I pray for awesome test results and that only the leg be an issue. I pray for miracles for his heart. I pray for peace, patience, and strength for you. I pray that the road be made as smooth as possible. I feel the aching in your heart and the sadness of your post, so I will continue to pray. Please keep us updated.
