then we got ready to go to the MRI. It was harder than I thought it would be. the last time I saw him in that transport box was not a good day - it was the day he was born and he was in plastic wrap headed to the medical center. it was hard to watch them put him into the mri - all the stuff they had to do to help him lay still and calm and not hear the machine. it was REALLY hard as I started seeing brain scans pop up all over the screen. I didn't realize it would affect me. but the fear that I felt the day we did the brain ultrasound came right back. God did send Leah with me - she was the transport nurse that took kyle down to the MRI. She was great - positive, honest, caring, protective, detailed and AMAZING at her job. not to mention she is a mother of 2 also! she was amazing.
I was so unsettled. We will not have results until tuesday however he did say he would comment a bit just on what he saw. Kyle's ventricles are enlarged still. The right one looks pretty good but the left on still has blood in it. This is not a problem, it will go away. The problem is the damage it can leave when it goes away. Kyle's right ventricle looks good so far. His left one is still enlarged. Kyle has lost some of his white matter (brain matter) around this area. He is showing premature signals (this goes along with the damaged brain matter). What this means - of course they don't know. John and I are used to this buy now. They did give us some bits of info about cognitive and motor developmental delays ranging from mild to medium in severity. We will know more on Tuesday.
I believe God will heal kyle. I believe what I feel is the promise he made to me or the hope he put in me for kyle. I believe the vision he gave my friend. I still don't understand why he delays or I think maybe i just think he delays. I still don't understand why he doesn't dramatically do what I ask b/c I think it would be great display of his healing power. There is still this fear, this underlying worry, unbelief maybe.
A friend of mine tonight talked to me about that being the whisper - the one underneath all my belief that tries to convince me of a lie. from evil. she reminded me of the vision that God gave to her and to me when Kyle was born. My hearts desire is to see him run and play in the backyard with his brothers. what joy there will be in my heart the day I see that. the day the whisper goes away. I was reading a woman's blog tonight about her son jack. she talks about a feeling in your gut. no matter what you are doing - crying, laughing, playing, singing - whatever - a feeling that never goes away - I know one day it will. what joy.
I promise to post more when I know more. kyle was pretty tired out after his big field trip! He had a great day eating today and they moved him to add lib which is bottle feeding as much as he wants and as many times out of the 8 as he wants!
Maybe he should be a piglet instead of a lion!
