I FINALLY got the results back yesterday! NORMAL!!!! All normal - of course except for the fact that's he's 3 and his fontanel is still open. But everything looks completely healthy and great inside his brain! And I'm not worried for one minute about that fontanel . "L" has always followed his own time schedule with everything. He has taught me patience in these past 3 years. He has taught me that not everything can have a schedule. He continues to teach us these things. What an incredibly emotional week. I am certainly humbled in the presence of God's power and grace that allowed us to make it through this week. And I am so forever thankful to all of the prayers we received.
Update: The MRI went well. He handled the sedation well, and was brave, just like I predicted. It did take them about 15-20 minutes longer than normal, because he kept coughing. They had to pull him out of the machine a couple of times and suction out his nose/mouth, and start taking the picture over. The first thing he said to me after waking up: "I am ready for my donut now." (I had promised him a trip to get a donut - a rare treat around here) I love it! Anyways, we don't have any sort of results yet, hopefully in the next couple of days we will get more information. I hate the waiting, but I feel at peace.
Can you do me a favor, please?
Can you keep this sweet, sweet boy in your prayers tonight?
