A Prayer for my daughter


Hello wonderful people. Many of you know of my daughter Claire and her Tuberous Sclerosis disease. For those who are newer to my blog, she started having face twitches (small seizures) when she was 1 month old. After testing and bloodwork we discovered her disease: a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on the brain, heart, kidneys, eyes and lungs. At 5 months old she had a brain tumor removed and from then had been seizure-free for 1 1/2 years.

Starting about a month ago, her seizures have come back. I am asking for your prayers that this new medication that we will be starting her on will control the seizures. For those who want to read about it, here is a link to my family blog:

Stumbled upon this blog by accident. Sorry to hear about your child and will keep her in my thoughts.

I had a brain tumour many years ago-hemangioblastoma. The important thing for the sufferer, is that it's diagnosed, removed and that you find things to enjoy and keep your spirits up.

God Bless.

Nancy said...

I am so sorry to hear this about your dear, sweet daughter. I can understand your pain as our daughter was just diagnosed with MS this year. There are no words for a mother's broken heart over hearing that her child has an incurable disease. Only prayers, prayers and more prayers can bring us the strength, wisdom and peace to tackle each day we have with them.
My heart goes out to you.
Much love,
Nancy
