Works of God Monday (on Tuesday)

I know it's Tuesday, but I arrived home too late yesterday to type anything up. God is sooo good and gracious to me. Yesterday I took Ezekiel down to Salina for an appointment with a pediatrician. God has been preparing me for this day for about three months. Three months ago, I suspected that Ezekiel may possibly have a specific disorder, so I have done a bit of research off an on over the past months. The visit with the pediatrician was a blessing, as he reluctantly confirmed my suspicians. It's amazing how God had prepared me. The doctor did not want to state the diagnosis because he didn't want to scare me, and yet I was thankful for the diagnosis as it brought me relief. These are the possible things that I had been told last week which we are sure it is not -- a stroke in-utero, a growth, and nothing.

The doctor did request a ct scan in order to rule out the above issues (I just now received a call from the doctor and the ct scan came back clear). I was blessed to be able to stand next to Ezekiel during the scan and hold his hand, rub his foot, and sing to him in order to try calming him down. I am also very thankful for my mom who took the day to come up and be with me so I wouldn't be by myself in case the news was bad.

Again, I can't tell you enough about how good God has been to us. Ezekiel will be continuing physical therapy, but nothing more invasive will be necessary.

For everyone who was praying for us this weekend, thank you. I could feel the strength of your prayers as I met with the doctor, watched Ezekiel endure the ct scan, and drove the long drive home. I firmly believe God will use this for His glory, and I pray my response will continue to honor him and trust him with each day.

So, how has God provided for your family this week? What has He been teaching you? What are you thankful for? How did you watch God work this week? Take a little time to praise the Lord with your blog or leave a comment! You can use the mister linky here on Jenny's blog to link your post to the Works of God Monday.

I'm grateful the Lord had prepared your heart. I'm also glad that the previous research you had done worked to calm & reassure you rather than freak you out ;-) I will continue to pray for little Ezekiel!
