prayers for Elias, please

Recommended Posts

I know I haven't been to the forum much lately...first it was the glitch in my game for so long and lately it has been because of family....my grandson Elias turned one year old in December and he has been admitted to the Calgary Childrens Hospital and will undergo surgery tomorrow to remove a tumour and then endure multiple tests that didn't tell enough the first time. My daughter Jessie(her member name is jessdf and her pet is Frappy) has asked me to get as many prayers for Elias as I can and like any mother I will do whatever I can for my children. I'm not asking for miracles, just a prayer that things will go well tomorrow and maybe an extra request that just in case we need it our family will have strength and hope. thank you, shirley

It hurs me to say that Elias did not have a completely successfull surgery....the tumor was cancerous and was removed but the Cancer is elswhere in his body....I am leaving Sunday morning to be with my daughters, their husbands and Mateo and Elias. Mateo is 3 and a half years old and only understands that his brother is sick. The staff and Doctors have been woonderfull to Jessie and Kurt and Elias will be starting Chemo treatments immediately. I thank each and everyone of you for your prayers, thoughts and wishes. I ask again that you keep my baby in your hearts and prayers and if someone can tell me why a baby gets Cancer then maybe I won't keep feeling devastated. Thank you friends

Elias has been diagnosed with....rhabdomyosarcoma....it is a rare form of muscle cancer. You may want to Google the name because I did several times. Now here is the ironic part....this cancer is rare but is common in children who get cancer (actually that is about 1% of 350) but cancer in a child of Elias's age is rare. His tumor is about the size of a grape which is kind of big when you have a little neck. He will have an MRI and Bone Marrow Biopsy today and hopefully we will find out the sub-type of the cancer and at what stage it is in.

We have started a Facebook Group named Support for baby Elias where we will be posting the results from todays tests and we are being optimistic about the future. Please join as it is comforting to know that we are not alone in caring.

IF YOU ARE A MOM OR DAD; give extra hugs today,please.
IF YOU ARE A KID; give your Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa or anyone who worrys about you and tries to make your life safe...give them an extra hug today....it's tough being a parent and when someone says "this hurts me more than it hurts you"....they mean it.

Thanks everyone for all your thoughts and just everything.....thanks to PS I am able to entertain Elias's brother Mateo(he's 3 1/2) because he just loves the fishing!

Lea, thank you so much for your kindness. Elias is scheduled for surgery on Wed. morning to remove the tumor, part of the surrounding muscle and another check on the lymph nodes. Radiation will be considered if the tumor cannot be completely removed and a follow up treatment of at least 48 weeks of chemotherapy. I have been taking photos like mad because right now he is a happy smiling bay so full of fun. He has been allowed to return home until the surgery.

I will be praying for Elias and for your entire family. It's especially difficult when a child is so sick. I will pray that his little body is touched and that the medical personnel will have open eyes and great insight.
