Update on Walker

Yesterday we had a neurologist appointment for Little Man.

I was a little freaked out by the word "neurologist."

Having to see a specialist for your child is a little frightening.

However, I was relieved after yesterday's visit.  Walker's doc didn't over-react or cry "wolf" or talk down to us or assume our child was dying......... which is what I feared most.

He was calm, asked lots of questions, & then told us that he really thinks we are just dealing with tics.

However, he wants Walker to do an EEG & an MRI.

I think the EEG is to check for seizure activity, & the MRI to check a little deeper since we don't know Walkie's health history.

Over the next several days we'll be busy getting those things done & then waiting for the results & then going to more doctor visits.

I feel so out of sorts!  I'm getting exhausted & cranky.  I grocery shopped, but who knows if I actually bought a coherent grouping of foods for us to eat.  We haven't done school all week.  The house isn't clean, & I just found a load of wet laundry from Saturday still sitting in the washing machine.

Send help, send food, & please keep praying!

I am SO thankful for so many of you emailing, calling, texting, praying............

The Lord graciously blessed us with this baby boy, & we will continue to trust Him through the unknown.


  1. I wish I lived closer Bethany! I would bring you dinner and/or do your laundry. But I will send prayers for sure :)
