Please pray for my Granddaughter Isabella.. We were told by her Rheumatologist Wednesday that she is not in remission from her Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
She had x rays and blood work.
She may require surgery on her middle fingers on both hands.
She must also start back to extensive therapy on her hands.
God bless this precious little 11 year old!
It's one step forward and then two steps back for her.
She is VERY upset that she may not be able to play Fall Soft ball or start back Cheer leading,
she had to stop Cheering 3 years ago when she was diagnosed with the JRA.
This would have been her first year back to Cheering..
We will pray that the x-rays are better then expected...
~God please bless and watch over my Isabella~

awww sweet girl...I am praying for Isa, Mary. My daughter is 11 also so I can imagine how hard this is to bare. I pray that Isa will feel well enough to take part in all the activities she wants to. & that she gets better soon. Hang in there grandma.... I'm sure you bring her such comfort and fun! Cityfarmers prayer is beautiful...

Father as we gather together before Your throne of grace we would bring Isabella to You and ask You to lift her in Your arms and hold her close to Your heart. May the healing purchased by the Lord Jesus Christ be given to her in mercy and we would ask that since Your word tells us that Jesus ever lives to make intercession for us that He will make continuing intercession for Isabella and we begin now with our thanksgiving and praise.

Mary said...

Looks like the Kids are having fun:)
but I do not think I want to play!
Sending Love, Hugs and lots of Prayers for Sweet Isabella.

Mary, your precious Isabella is in my thoughts and prayers, in fact for all of you.
It's great seeing them have so much fun and I have found another inspiration---if a child that young can handle RA, then she gives me hope. I was so worried about YOU and came just about everyday to check on you and hardly posted on my blog. God Bless all of you, Love and Hugs, Pat

Awww.....I hate that! She was doing so good. This stuff comes in the door and goes out for some reason. I was feeling GREAT and the past few weeks it's kicking back in a bit. I wonder why these things happen??
I am rejoicing though because this is the BEST summer I have had since being diagnoised with RA two years ago...the humidity is and has been killer still but this year I am able to at least "function" way better.
I will be thinking of and praying for Isabella. I just can't imagine a child in so much pain and turmoil. I can hardly deal with it and I have a high pain level.
Hang in there....

Oh, Mary, I am so very sorry to hear that Isabella is having such a flare up. I had hoped her meds would keep her stable and prevent the need for surgeries. You and Isa are in my prayers.

Just said a prayer for your precious Isabella. She is lovely. Thank you for sharing!

Joyce said...

Oh Mary... I was so sorry to read about Isa.... How is she doing? Keeping you all in my prayers....
love,
Joyce

Mary said...

Mary dear, the news of Isa's new problems is so upsetting. We were so happy knowing perhaps life was improving for her and enabling her to do more normal things. Our prayers are with this sweet and beautiful child every day. I will tell Jasmin tomorrow - I know whe too will be upset and want to send Isabella warm hugs and get well wishes.

Be strong - hope all is OK with you dear friend.
Hugs - Mary.
