We’re still waiting for insurance to approve the MRI. We were told that it takes longer to approve an MRI because he’s a baby. He seems so normal to us other than not crawling or walking… the sad thing is to see other babies that are younger than him doing twice as much. That’s when it hits us that there’s something wrong. We are doing okay though and he’s doing okay.  : )

    • Thank you so much Susan. His doctor is out today but I am going to see if we can get him started in the Birth the Three program while we are waiting for the MRI. Thank you so much for your support!

  1. I am waiting too. I need an MRI for my neuro-disease. But I can’t even see the Dr until October 20th, and then set it up. I also have to wait for the dermatologist to remove a cancerous mole………in October!!! I think this Obamacare has destroyed the health system. We ended up on “medical assistance” due to family size and income. But we used to buy our own insurance for $1,500.00 a month? The only reason we can’t any longer is the Obamacare changes (birth control etc) raised the cost to double that a month! (((HUGS)))

    I think Benjamin is perfect. Fearfully and wonderfully made. Created for good- to carry on the Lord’s Will and work! God is taking care of this as we pray! It will all be for His great good!

    Our precious Faith with Fetal Alcohol shows no brain irregularities from her scan. But the Lord knows that she has great difficulties with common sense and understanding Social rules etc. She will work harder than any of us will know to keep from sin because she “follows” others so easily.
    My Isaiah has Dyslexia. He can write backwards mirror image! And he can write upside down! So he must write slowly. Numbers are backwards perfectly when he’s in a hurry.. And now his spelling has begun to suffer as he needs to learn to spell bigger words. He always forgets that words with “tion” at the end are not spelled “toin”. Out of 21 children, he is my only child with Dyslexia!
    God has created us all so uniquely! And he never makes mistakes!

    • Paying out $1,500 a month sounds horrible! I’m sorry you have to wait so long for your MRI and mole. I have a friend in Maine who’s son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, he is 18 and bedridden by now. It is always fatal and most don’t make it to the age of 30. : ( She has been waiting since January to get approval for something that clears his airway to help him breathe better. She’s been on the phone twice a week for months now while she sees him struggle to breathe. I feel so bad for her, and him. If only they could see behind closed doors into homes such as these. : (

      Anyways, we’re doing okay regarding Benjamin on most days. I had a few tears this morning but it’s funny, he seems normal to us because, well… he’s just Benjamin. : ) I’m sure you know what I mean.
