Toddler healed of Kawasaki disease - Esther Lily Matilda, Trichy

I am a housewife and my husband is a retired engineer. We have two daughters who are married and working in USA; the elder one has three boys and the younger one is longing for a child. To renew my spirit almost every year I come to DRC and this is my ninth retreat. God has blessed our family with many blessings. My grandson Joshua, twenty months old, had fever for two days. On the third day his palms, feet and mouth became red and skin started peeling off. The doctor said that it might be a disease called Kawasaki affecting the valves of the heart. We took the boy to another hospital in Chennai and the result showed positive for the same disease. His platelet count was 7, 60,000/cmm and WBC count was 17,000/cmm. I telephoned the DRC Prayer Tower to pray for his heart not to be affected by the virus. I strongly believed in the words of the Psalmist: “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff — they comfort me” (Ps 23:4). We entrusted his little heart to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and prayed for all the sick children. After two weeks his blood count started decreasing and in the fourth week he was normal. Six weeks later we took him to a paediatric cardiologist in Chennai. The result confirmed that his heart was normal. The doctor told us to stop the medicine. We thank and praise the Lord.
