Once again, God answered your prayers as we waited for the endocrinologist to get back to us about Isaiah's issues. According to the Diagnostic specialist we saw, the endocrinologist felt very strongly that Isaiah does NOT have anything wrong with his pituitary, adrenal, or thyroid glands. She reviewed his entire chart, labs, radiology reports, etc. from birth til now. Per this doctor, Isaiah is showing NO signs of these particular glands being affected-----PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!! He will have his thyroid levels repeated just to make sure they are back up to normal (they were a little low in January due to his sickness). We are still waiting to see if anything needs to be done about his spine.
Another exciting moment for us was when Isaiah walked for the first time this past Monday!!!!! He balanced himself off of the therapist and took 4 unassisted steps to me. Then he took another 6 unassisted steps for the video camera for daddy. We were very excited! Then, at the park, Isaiah decided to climb up the stairs of the jungle gym ALL BY HIMSELF!!! I didn't even know he could do that! He is on a rampage now! Hopefully, you can see some of the video clips we tried to attach!
Surgery is back on for Wednesday, August 4th. Isaiah will have the G-tube placed in his stomach for feeds. It'll be much easier to manage, and hopefully we will have less mishaps from the extended tubing we are currently using--we've found Isaiah at the bottom of his crib with the tubing wrapped around his neck a few times. Fun huh?!?!?
TWO PRAYER REQUESTS:
1. That surgery goes well and that it will actually improve Isaiah's reflux and appetite.
2. That we can get in to the Ronald McDonald House. We won't know till the day of if we can get a room at the house. We need a room from Tuesday til Sat. Please pray with us.
Thank you again for carrying us through a very scary time!!!!
