Asking for prayers for daughter


Ok at the bottom of her thumb on her palm side there is a knot or cyst or something. I noticed it today because she was acting like something was hurting her. She is 15 months old, and she is my whole world. Her daddy and I love her so much it just hurts. :slight_smile: She is just the most perfect little girl in the world (sorry, mother’s bias.) haha!

Well, then she was totally fine…and has been fine since then, but I can feel that there is a sticking out right there. You know, I cant really describe it but it definitely is not on the other hand. we’ll go to the pediatrician tomorrow but I’m really upset and nervous…anyone know what it might be?

Asking for a little prayer if you can think of it. I usually dont ever ask, but in this case, I’m asking for my precious little babycakes.



Is it or has it been red?? Could be something as simple as a small splinter. I’ll be praying for her…and for her nervous mom… Why don’t you post on the prayer forum for her.


I’m sure it’s something relatively simple - prayers for you, and get her to the doctor!


Thank you for the prayers.

Its not a splinter. I can feel the actual bone, or maybe a cyst or something in there that is different than the other hand.

I’m so scared. I just prayed a rosary, and I"m not as scared as I have been in the past with medical scares. But I’ll still take prayers…:slight_smile:



Are you taking her to the doctor? :confused:


Yes, I’m calling the pediatrician tomorrow, and hopefully he can get us in. We just found it today.



We went to the pedi this morning. He said its not a cyst and not a growth, but rather the bone on one hand is abnormally prominent, and then he used a bunch of big words. :slight_smile: Bottom line is that its nothing to worry about…now. No MRIs or Xrays now, but we just have to watch and wait and see. he didnt tell me what it COULD BE eventually, so that worries me, but he honestly said he sees this often, and that it really is probably nothing, and especially since it isnt causing her pain she is most likely fine.

I’m still worried because my husband has a very very rare condition (segmental Neurofibromatosis) where he has tumors in only one leg at the age of 31, so when people tell me that something will “probably” be fine…or that the “odds are that it will be ok” I have a very skewed view of that because I know that it can happen that you are the one person where things are NOT fine…sigh…

Oh well. I think this is pretty good news, I’m asking my doctor friend what she thinks too and should hear back today. I wrote all the “big words” down haha. Anyway - I think it is still concerning and we have to watch it but for right now anyway I think its ok.

If I can impose, if you could just say a prayer of thanksgiving now to God to say that everything appears fine, and that if it is His Will to take this from her as she grows that it just disappears. thank you all so much for your prayers.



Thank you everyone again…your prayers mean everything to me…really.

We are going to see a pediatric hand orthopaedic specialist on Thursday - I will keep you updated. I’ll take any and all prayers I can get.

I didnt take no for an answer. They said that they couldnt get her in for months. I wouldnt take that as an answer, so I got to a specialist who could see her thursday. Thats a prayer answered already right there!

by the way…Im not a doctor, but I play one on the internet…haha. Let me tell you where the devil is. Tell a mommy something might be wrong with her baby’s hand and then let her loose on the internet. Thats hell right there. haha. It makes you have enough info to be dangerous and scared.



Praying that your Babycakes’ hand is perfectly fine and thanking God for your prayers that have been answered already. :slight_smile:
