Today was a day full of a lot of firsts.
What in the world, people?!
He is growing up so fast.
I’ve always been a gel kind of gal, but mousse is so much less crispy!
Today the Happy Hubby woke up and decided it was time he fried an egg for the first time.
Because he doesn’t.
*Insert Shouts of Praise Here!*
He does, however, have subtle signs of mitochondrial damage (they are calling it mitochondrial myopathy)…
BUT (and that’s a BIG but) –
God has been doing such amazing healing in the Happy Baby’s body (especially since he has been home with us) that even the geneticist was mystified (I am not even kidding when I tell you that once the Happy Baby started rolling over – he also started lifting his head like we’ve never seen before!).
Doctor said he probably won’t be a superstar on the football field, and he will probably have some delays when it comes to milestones like walking and boyyyyyy are we still battling it out with the bottles, but otherwise it’s looking like our little boy is going to be just fiiiiiiine.
He mentioned something about getting the Happy Baby on a drug and also about coming to see him again in January for more tests, but when the Happy Hubs and I left the office, we decided not to schedule the next visit.
Because, quite honestly, we don’t think we are going to need it.
The doctor said he might not be a star athlete, but hasn’t the Happy Baby defied the odds already?
A friend reminded me of this truth recently, “”You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With Your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.” Psalm 18:28-29
God has already proven His power in the Happy Baby so far (um, rolling over at 4 months is not even developmentally delayed!) – we are rejoicing in His gracious hand on our son’s life and are believing for a 100% healing (aka giving that feeding tube the boot!).
I am headed to bed now! Hopefully to sleep without an anxious heart – a definite FIRST since our journey began 4 months ago.
Love you guys.
“Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.” Psalm 116:7
