Prayer Request

This is Arianna. She is Sean and Michelle's baby. She is 6 months old (this picture is from a couple of months ago). Blood work was done and the tests show that Arianna’s thyroid is not working right. Her pediatrician will be consulting with a specialist about the choices they have for treatment. Sean and Michelle are concerned about the long term effects of putting Arianna on medication. They are very worried about their little girl and need prayer that the Lord will take care of Arianna. Please also pray that it will be clear to Sean and Michelle what the best course of action will be.

I will post updates as I get them.

O my word! I just saw her in Walmart a week ago! She is a cutie. We'll pray for them. Did they have a suspicion that something was going on or was it just routine blood work?

I would be glad to join you in prayer. Where two or more gather in his name believing........I believe.

Thank you for the alert, Melanie.

Lord of Heaven and Earth. I am coming before your throne of grace today to ask for Your healing touch on little Arianna. Lord, grant wisdom to the doctors as they are searching for a treatment for her. Grant strength and peace to the parents of little Arianna. I am trusting in Your mercy. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

By the way, my niece's name is "Ella" but I won't be using that on my blog. :)

I enjoyed all the "E" guesses though!

I will keep her in my prayers as well. She looks very sweet and long term meds are not fun, especially if you do not know all the long term effects.

Melanie I have a prayer request also but have not posted it yet. It if for a family I am very close to but I am waiting more information before posting it. For know it is kind of a silent prayer request.....

I will be happy to pray for her and her family. I have thyroid cancer and have been on synthroid for about 7 years now and honestly, it really has helped. If you talk to her family, tell them not to worry too much about synthroid and its long term effects because it is FAR better to be stable on the medication rather than let your thyroid ruin you because of its instability. Before I went on medication my out of control thyroid made me gain a huge amt of weight, thinning hair, brittle nails, bowl problems and tons of other issues. But once I got regulated on my medication (and with blood work now and then to maintain my medication levels), thinsg have been stable. Things will always be altered (i.e losing weight is really difficult, etc) but it does work.

Ill be praying!!
God bless!

Halfmoon Girl said...

I will pray. I have been on thyroid medication since I was 9 years old- hypothyroidism. My own doesn't function at all really. I hope that it is something simple like that as I don't experience any side effects and carry on normally- i just need to take one little pill a day. It is hard when it is your little one though...

Jarid & Caydon's Wishlist said...

Aww she is so cute. My prayers are with her and her family.

JennieBoo said...

I will put her and her family on my prayer list.

God bless her.

Sue said...

Sending positive energy, and thoughts to this family!
