Anyway, from the outside, John looks like any other 4 year old boy and is definitely our own little version of Dennis the Menace! He's rambunctious and inquisitive and a total whirlwind.. We love him fiercely and unconditionally, without a doubt. However, there is no denying that this beautiful little boy will have to deal with some heavy duty issues throughout his life. The ability to communicate being one of them, but in order to receive the services that he needs, such as speech therapy, he must first be given a diagnosis by the medical professionals.
It started with an MRI, where they found nothing out of the ordinary. So now they will move on to an audiologist and see if it's the way that he's hearing things around him that are causing him difficulty in the speech department. Or maybe his auditory perception...
So anyway, tomorrow will be the hearing tests and I would appreciate any and all prayers that y'all are willing to offer up. Please pray that he will be able to sit still long enough for them to get an accurate reading, because most of the time just getting him to sit still is an adventure all in itself. Please pray that the results will be enough to get him started with the services that he needs! We would really love a miracle, but the fact that he survived the Meningitis in the first place and is active and loving and beautiful is a HUGE miracle, so we'll take whatever God has in store for him tomorrow and pray for positive results!
Thanks everyone :o)
Oh, and as for my daily goals, I did really well but am just too tired to post them right now and need to get to bed... I'll pick back up with it tomorrow.
