wow. what an incredible week for us.
its been so much harder than we even could have imagined - being in the hospital & all of the tests & the news from doctors - both good & bad.
but also so much sweeter when we get to snuggle with our little man.
i didn't think it was possible to love him so much as we do. it hurts our hearts to be away from him, but the past two nights back home have been good for us, too. we're getting some much needed sleep finally & catching up on laundry & little life things.
we had a quieter weekend with him, followed by a busy monday today with lots of visits from doctors.
they did an ultrasound on his brain this morning to see how the fluid is going down and/or moving/collecting & we don't have an official report back yet. the left side of his brain was about 4x bigger than his right, but it's looking like thats starting to shift & the two sides are more proportional from the looks of things -- off the record. still, we were really glad to hear the news.
sunday was a weepy day for us when little man had his eyes examined & they think he has optic nerve hypoplasia, which just means that the nerves in his eyes don't look like they're quite developed. that could mean lots & lots of things that we wont know for awhile. on the vision scale it could range from almost normal to legally blind, but we've researched it some & feel better about things.
we also really feel like he can see us. he looks straight at us & seems to know who we are.
it doesn't seem fair for him all the time to have all of this going on, but we don't know the big picture. we don't know what plans God has for him, but we do know he is here for a purpose & he is something really special.
we are praying nonstop for our little man. for healing. for peace. that he would know that his parents love him & that Jesus loves him most of all.
thank you all SO much for praying for isaac. its been so encouraging at the end of a really hard day to see so many other people have been praying for him, too. it makes our hearts glad.
