I love to share Joel’s new accomplishments with everyone. Now, Joel can drink from a regular cup without spilling. For the last week at meals we have been giving him non-sippy-cups, and he has learned not to just dump them on himself. He is really good at only tipping it enough to drink but not enough to spill. We’re very proud of him.
Joel will have a hearing test on Tuesday. We are hoping to get more solid results this time, by keeping Joel from pulling out the ear phones they use. We are going to distract him with a pediasure bottle and this time they will have two audiologists there to try to get a more sure result. The last test showed that Joel had mild to moderate hearing loss, but they weren’t sure how accurate it was. Please pray for an accurate reading. We have wondered if any of Joel’s speech delay could be doing to non-corrected hearing loss. You could also just pray for any hearing damage to be healed in the name of Jesus.
Last week I posted about my kidney stones, and after talking with the doctor I have learned that they are really puzzled about how such large stone have passed as far as they have, and they can not believe I’m not in pain. They also do not believe the x-ray which shows that the very large kidney stone which has been sitting in my kidney for four years is no longer there. They want a CT scan because none of these things make sense to them and they think maybe the x-ray had it wrong and that a CT scan will offer a better explanation. Ryan and I think the CT scan will reveal that we have received a small miracle with the kidney stones. We are praising God that I am pain free!
