Healing Prayers and wishes needed.
« on: April 05, 2013, 03:49:41 AM »
I apologize for being mia for so long and then showing up with this request, but this is the one place I fell like it will be ok to do so.
I'm sorry this is so long.............................

2 weeks ago my wonderful 13 yr old grandson Kai, broke out in a rash (hives?), and they cleared up by the next morning.  He broke out again, a little worse, they cleared up again. 3rd time he broke out,  they went into his right eye.  He basically hasn't been able to see out of that eye since.  Eye Dr was treating him for iritis,  did a bunch of blood tests (strongly suspecting an auto immune disorder).  1st he was on an allergy eye drop, along with a bunch of other meds.  Then a prednisone eye drop got added.   This past Monday, those got upped to once an hour, along with a drop to dilate his eye (just 2 x a day).  He went back to the eye Dr Thursday, and because there is no improvement in his vision, the dr said to keep doing the prednisone drops once an hr.   this alone scares me, after 10 days and especially after 3 days of once an hr, the drops should be slowly discontinued or very carefully monitored, as they can actually start doing damage.  He's supposed to keep doing them once an hour until the 15th, and as far as I know doesn't see the eye Dr until then.  He also has an appointment to see an allergist that day too.   He'll have to be off his allergy med from the 8th so they can do some allergy tests - on his first visit!

2 Dr's are thinking it may be auto immune related,  me - thinking, maybe allergy, maybe both. 

His mom Nichole and I need strength, so does he, but he needs healing.
I'm the one at home with him handing him these drops once an hour that sting!  He actually is dealing with it all pretty well, but I don't think he really understands the very possible gravity of the situation. 
Having access to my laptop helps the day go by nicer!
So, your prayers, thoughts, or what ever you may do will be greatly appreciated,
Thank you all in advance.   
Miss everyone, hopefully will be back on a regular basis soon.

Tons of prayers for all of you!  The not knowing is the worst part of an illness as far as I'm concerned.  Keep us posted!

This is Kai from a couple of years ago.  He looks pretty much the same only a bit older.   Kai, his sister Evie, and I were playing with play dough.

we'll be adding you to the prayer list at our church.  sometimes it's harder when it's our children or grandchildren, and we are helpless to make it better.  let him know that he's in our prayers.

Monika, thank you my dear!
Debbie, I appreciate it!
Sandy, I'll take good vibrations, thank you.
Matt,  healing energy is so good, thank you.
Teresa,  thank you kindly
Colette,  thank you so much!

Thank you so much everyone, and yes it is scary when you just don't know!  I'm pretty sure he's allergic to at least one thing, but this eye stuff is what really gets me.

Kris, I am so sorry to hear this news and I hope that you know we are all praying for you.  I will be praying for you all 'without ceasing'.  God will prevail.  He is a healing God, so have faith and stay strong.

We love you.

This is one of the reasons I love this place!

My daughter and I talked last night about this and all of a sudden she looked at me and said "he needs to quit wearing the bandana over his eye.  He needs his eye open for the dilating drops to do their job."  I had just told him earlier in the day he needed to start taking it off once in a while and to try using his eye,  not using it can cause it to quit seeing.  Today he's had it off all day and has kept his eye open most of the day.  From what I've read about iritis, it's quite often caused by an auto immune disorder.  I keep hoping that isn't the case.

Pam, thank you

CherokeeLodge, thank you and nice to meet you.

Alix, thank you
