Prayers for Malaya Wood

Today my heart is sadden by the news of my cousins 8 month old baby girl, Malaya Wood.  She is the daughter of Jeff and Ingrid Wood from Belmont, MS.  She has a big sister, Chloe, and two big brothers, Caden and Madden.  Below is an update from her mother yesterday.

UPDATE FROM INGRID: No surgery tomorrow for Malaya. Bringing in a group of each: Oncologists, Opthamologists, Endocrine Specialists, and NeuroSurgeons. Each will check Malaya and go over all blookwork and the MRI tomorrow. Some time toward the end of the day, they will have a tumor conference. Each will speak on their opinions and hope that the decision made is the very best for Malayas concern! The reason for this is because it is a very large mass. The good news is that 3/4 is NOT attached to her brain. PRAISE THE LORD! But the concern is "what it is attached to". Whether it is actually growing from the eye area itself or elsewhere which is causing the thyroids to not be functioning. Also, what type of tumor has to be determined by the oncologists. Whether it is cancer? So a lot of observation tomorrow and hopefully a decision will be made. If not, it will be Friday. Pray for these groups of Doctors please!! That it will be a decision that everyone is in unity on and she will not have to suffer.

There has been a facebook group set up for her called Prayers for Malaya Wood.  If you are a facebook user please join the group and help us prayer that God will heal this baby and uphold her family.  It is very heartwarming that so many people have already joined the group and are praying reverently for this child and her family.  God doesn't promise any of us tomorrow and we never know when we might be in the same shoes they walk in today.  It doesn't matter where you come from, what your skin color is, whether you have worldly possessions or not; any one of us can face our darkest hours at any moment and need desperately what this family needs now....our prayers.

I will post updates on this precious child when I get them.  Just continue the prayers, please.
