Prayers for Elijah

This is a photo of our big boy Tyler with his little sister Karsyn and baby brother Mason. Yesterday one of his very best buddies in the world was diagnosed with cancer.

I woke up this morning still in shock over the fact that little Elijah has cancer. It just doesn't seem real yet. How can a little boy who was outside riding his bike, going to school, laughing and playing just the day before now be laying in a cancer ward?

Mommy took Elijah to the ER yesterday morning because he had a small knot on the back of his neck and was complaining his neck hurt. Today he is on a morphine drip for the pain, the Drs. are continuing tests to see if the cancer has spread to other parts of his little body. Sunday he will have a biopsy to find out what stage the cancer is in.

Elijah needs prays of healing. Mommy needs prays of strength. His little brother Sam needs prays of understanding.

I never in a million years would have thought I would be making a Linus quilt for a child that is so much a part of our life. I know just what he likes. I know how to sew. I have more patterns than any one person should have. But I have no idea how I will get the quilt even started.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear this. Elijah and his family will be in my prayers.

  2. So sorry, just not fair. I will keep Elijah and his family in my prayers.

  3. Oh my, how sad for everyone. Maybe Tyler would like to make a special block for the quilt with crayons or something. It will be very hard on him just understanding this. It so hard on a child. I'm putting Elijah on my prayer list. I make pillow cases for Conker Cancer all the time. These little gifts we all can provide does give a smile, even if it's only for a short time.
