Topic: Prayer for young boy with leukemia

Please pray for my friend's five-year old son, who found out in October that he had leukemia. After several months in the hospital, last month we heard he was doing much better. This afternoon I found out he's in an isolation room with bumps over his body, only one parent can accompany him in the isolation room. His fever is over 105 degrees, despite medications to bring it down. 

Pray that God keeps his loving arms around my friend's son, that the fever breaks, and that the cause of the bumps is a skin irritation, and not the chicken pox.

I'm praying.  You also might like to look at this site: http://www.ishmael.org.uk/  Ishmael (real name Ian Smale - ish to his friends!) was the original 'loud' kids ministry guy here in the UK.  Ish was diagnosed with leukemia last year and has been amazing in sharing his story.  I think your friends might get some real encouragement from him.

Deborah,  It seems that there are no shortages of people sick!  It tears my heart out especially when it happens to be a child!  I told Nathan in his prayer request that several years back I too; had cancer!  1985 and by all means;  by what the specialist told me;  i shouldn't still be here!  Praise be unto *GOD*!  I had refused and quit my Chemo and (radiation treatments that i did not mention to Nathan)!  I was too sick and could not bear the thought of taking another treatment!  The Dr was stumped and after a year of not seeing me could not give an answer as to why i no longer needed treatments!!!  I can feel the pain of those who suffer with this;  because i to have also!  My prayers will definately go out to *GOD*!  Afterall we live, move and have our being in the *LORD*!  All things are possible for those who love the *LORD*!  May *HE* give your friend comfort and peace!  And I  pray that by *HIS* grace and according to *HIS* will;  help this child!

Thank you Dwayne, Tom, and James for your thoughts and prayers. I have no new updates, but hope that is a good thing! I usually receive updates on the weekend, so I'm praying it will be news that the fever has broken and the infection is under control.

An update, but not the good news I would hope to share. My friend's son has continued to have complications over the past month. I just heard that his heart and liver are involved. His skin spots are disappearing, but unfortunately the medications he was taking affected his liver. Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts.
