Doctors Update

Juddah had another appointment with his neurosurgeon on Tuesday. She again physically examined his head and we talked about the results of his MRI and CT scan. The MRI confirmed hydrocephalus, but also showed something else... something unexpected... the recent MRI showed that Juddahs back suture on his skull was the only one fused! The only one! The diagnoses Juddah was given in Ethiopia based on the MRI done in country was that all his sutures were fused. Wow! That is great news!  That is GOD NEWS! Another interesting piece of the puzzle is in the form of the tiniest soft spot on top of his head. Where there once was no soft spot, there is now the smallest one forming. The surgeon would like to do a test where a needle is inserted thru Juddah's soft spot to test for pressure inside his head, but his spot is still to small to safely do this procedure. So the test will be delayed until it is safe to do. Juddah will have an EEG sometime next week. He needs to be sleep deprived for this test, so if any of you have advice on how to sleep deprive a 4 month old please let me know :). 

So where are we at now in the treatment plan for Juddah? We are in observation mode. The neurosurgeon is monitoring Juddah for the next 10 days, and will make another assessment then and look into doing the pressure test, and look at the results from the EEG.  She is moving forward very cautiously. He has an appointment with a pediatrician here in Roanoke on Saturday for a complete work up and to check out some minor issues. 

Well there are the facts, facts written in his medical chart. That which can be seen with the human eye and monitored thru tests on big expensive machines. But what is going on in the spiritual world for our little miracle baby Juddah? What is happening in the heavenliness when the prayer warriors pray? 

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, 
miracles that cannot be counted.
Job 9:10

Jesus looked at them and said, 
"With man this is impossible, 
but with God all things are possible"
Matthew 19:26

I know all things happen for a reason and nothing is by coincidence. God has a plan and a purpose for all things. He has a plan for Juddah. There is something very special about this little boy, the way he spreads joy and the gospel wherever he goes!

Prayer Warriors lets continue to link up our armor and lift up Juddah to the Lord and watch His plan unfold! .. His will be done!
