Judah's MRI results

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Psalm 116:1

For He has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; He has not hidden His face from him but has listened to his cry for help. Psalm 22: 24

We received an email from Judah's neurologist indicating that the MRI showed NO evidence of Sturge Weber brain involvement. This is remarkable given the "odds", but we know that God is not bound by statistics! There is still the possibility that brain involvement could be there and just not have shown up on this early scanning. Judah will most likely undergo further brain imaging in the future to further confirm this early indication that his brain seems unaffected by the Sturge Weber Syndrome. But for today, we are rejoicing and giving thanks to our Heavenly Father who loves to give good gifts to His children.

Additionally, for those of you who were praying for Judah's recovery after the MRI last weekend, he is doing much better. We gave him Nebulizer treatments through Sunday and then his breathing started sounding more normal. No ER visits, no steroids, not even a call to our pediatrician this time!!!

Thank you for your ongoing prayers. Please rejoice with us for this good news and give thanks to the One who is "full of compassion and protects the simplehearted." Ps. 116:5,6

Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness. Ps. 115:1

What a blessing!!! I want you to know that today I subbed for the 3rd and 4th grade and when I asked for prayer requests one of the kids wanted to pray for Judah. So we did. Judah has his own team of prayer warriors! God is good..all the time.

We'll continue to offer up our prayers on Judah's behalf. What a tiny little miracle!
