Not what was expected!

Today Juddah had an appointment with his neurosurgeon. As we entered her office, the thoughts rolling round my head were that of returning to Korah. Juddah has been doing so well, and just this last week had what I thought were breakthroughs with his development. He started to reach for toys, and even passed a spoon between his two hands! Yeah Juddah!!
As she measured his little head circumference and then planted the dot on the growth chart, it was shocking to see how quickly his head has grown. It has always been at the 95th percentile, but now in just a month it has leapt off the the chart at a very steep incline. A sign that fluid may be building quickly inside his head due to the hydrocephalus. Wow... just the opposite of what I was expecting her to say. So here we are, at a crossroad for Juddah. Another MRI will be scheduled, and then the first procedure that the surgeon would like to do is called Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy, click the link and it will take you to a quick read about the surgery. It is a first step to try and relieve the pressure inside the brain, with out the use of a shunt. We will find out tomorrow when the MRI will be and go from there. Right now I'm just concentrating on one day at a time and not letting myself entertain thoughts of the 'what ifs'.... God has held Juddah in the palm of his hand from the beginning of this journey and He will continue to do so. The timeline of this journey has been not at all what I expected it to be, I'm just glad that He's in charge and I am not. His plan is perfect.

God wove Juddah's little body in his mother's womb. God guided you right to Juddah the very day that he needed you to be there. God wove Juddah into your heart and gave you the opportunity and means to get him to the best care. God will weave the PERFECT outcome for little Juddah's surgery....and for his life. Trust in God's unfailing love,mercy, grace, provision and healing. If God can move mountains, how much more will He do for this precious little boy? HE IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY MORE THAN WE CAN THINK OR IMAGINE.
