My Miracle Child


Those of you who have been reading my blog consistently would know that since our precious boy was born we struggled with sleep and what we thought was a very strange case of reflux.

Two weeks ago on Friday things took a turn for the worse and I decided to take Georgie into the A&E. He had this diarrhea he didn’t seem to be able to shake off and was starting to run a fever at night. Plus an extreme agitation and restlessness that kept us up basically all night.

To cut a long(and very painful) story short, last Friday, following blood and bone marrow tests and two lumbar punctures, our sweet baby boy was diagnosed with acute megakaryoblastic leukemia, a subtype of acute myeloid leukemia.  He was put on chemo as soon as he recovered from the critical condition he was in, following the two medical procedures under anesthetic he went through last week.

As you can imagine, we are still in complete shock. Our lives have been tilted upside down, with our baby living basically in the hospital for the foreseeable future, the doctors say.

But we have also been humbled and amazed by the support we received from friends here and everywhere in the world.

And we are also encouraged by the constant prayers presented before God’s throne by people from diverse denominations and countries. We know that our son is well covered in love and care and we trust he will be well and will amaze the doctors with his speedy recovery. He has already responded fantastically well to the chemo, his fever has ceased a couple of days ago and his diarrhea has improved since he was put on a different milk.

o thank you all for being on this journey with us. Spare a prayer for Georgie, press God with requests until the moment is ripe, until He says “enough is enough” and He hands us back our miracle baby, totally healed and unharmed by the trauma of his experience.

My mind is full of thoughts but since I only have a couple of hours at home I don’t have the time to put them all down. I hope I will find a way to write from the hospital, will enquire today of possible alternatives. Meanwhile, keep in touch through my Facebook page where I post an update on Georgie’s condition daily. Many thanks!

    Oana, si noi suntem inca socati de tot ce vi s-a intamplat. Ca mama, iti simt agonia desi sunt convinsa ca ceea ce simt eu nu e decat 0,0000… % fata de toate lucrurile prin care treci tu. De multe ori am auzit, am citit, am vazut la tv cazuri similare dar niciodata, spre rusinea mea, nu mi s-a parut atat de real ca acum.
    Ne rugam pt voi in fiecare zi si in orice moment, fie impreuna -ca familie-, fie separat. Ne rugam in primul rand pt Georgie pt ca Dumnezeu sa-l vindece in mod complet, perfect. Ne rugam pt tine si pt Alex ca parinti sa va dea puterea, dragostea si rabdarea necesara ca sa-i fiti alaturi si nu in ultimul rand, ne rugam pt Emma care sunt convinsa ca are nevoie de calmul si dragostea ce numai voi, ca parinti i-o puteti oferi.
    Nu sunteti singuri in lupta asta!!! ❤
    Te rog sa transmiti salutarile si dragostea noastra lui Alex si Emmei.

    PS. Pt noi si pt toata lumea care se roaga, cred, e f bine ca ne spui zilnic, in mod specific pt ce sa ne rugam. Si pt noi e incurajator sa vedem cum Dumnezeu este viu, asculta si raspunde.

  3. Sending lots of positive vibes, love and prayers for your family, especially your little miracle baby. x
