i will keep this pretty short, because we are actually going to bed soon. i know. craaaaazy right? its only 9! but tomorrow we are getting up before its even bright & early so we can be at the hospital for a series of tests for isaac. 4 mri's & a pretty extensive hearing test - about seven hours at the hospital, i'm thinking?
we haven't been totally sure that he can hear this whole time. i may have mentioned that really briefly before. its just with everything else going on, hearing seemed to be more of a minor thing, if you can believe it. i'm pretty positive he can at least feel vibrations if we're taking to him & he's really close to us & most recently he's responded a tiny bit to high pitched noises - his ear canals are super tiny, so hopefully thats all there is to it & its something a surgery or hearing aids can fix & its not in his inner ear, but tomorrow we should know a lot more.
we're also doing mri's on his brain, ears, eyes & spine. all of which, depending on the news we get will result in follow up surgeries. so tomorrow could be a really eventful day for us. i'm praying for the best but also trying to prepare my heart for some bad news.
i'm starting to feel a bit anxious about it. but i keep reminding myself that at the end of tomorrow nothing will have changed with him except that we will know & will hopefully be able to take care of him better.
if you think of us say a prayer. good news would be a sweet little miracle for the day!
