Lots of posts

I have several drafts started, as I want to share the good news from Josiahs race and school conferences last night. I think though, this is what most of you are waiting for, the test results!!

First of all -- The brain mri was normal!!! Praise God for that, it showed no tumors, damage, scars or anything, all looked completely normal.

Now that being said, there could still be an issue going on, like cerebal palsy , that wont be able to be diagnosed until he shows more motor control. you can still have cerebal palsy with a normal brain scan. But im praising God for a normal looking brain!!!!!

His leg/foot mri didnt come out so well -- not only is it showing a venous malformation , it showed that the bad leg/foot has overgrowth of bone. They are sending us to a genetic specialist associated with the university of minnesota. It isnt something that requires immediate attention,but it will require more follow up.

His thyroid test came back normal and his chromosomal test will take up to 2 months for results. So more waiting on that. But as far as the specialist knows, she doesnt know of a specific gene that would cause the overgrowth syndrome. It is just one more piece of a puzzle that we put in place, to rule out things.

PRaising God for my sweet little Gideon!!! God is good ... all the time!
