We made it home and everyone is happy. The kids met us in the yard and couldn’t wait to see Levi. Even though they came to the hospital, they were not able to see him. The doctor’s appointments went well today and we will have a few more over the next several weeks.
His head and spine ultrasound revealed everything that we already knew. There were a couple of other complications that happened at birth that we were unaware of, but they seem to be better. After the ultrasound, we met with the director of the genetics department and he looked at the images and at Levi. Right now he suggests that we see the neurologist as scheduled and let him lead the way in monitoring Levi’s progress. They going to call us in the next two days to let us know if anything particular concerns them about the ultrasound. Then in two months we will go to the cardiologist and the genetics director (the director wanted to see him again when Levi was able to interact with him a little). On Thursday we will visit our normal pediatrician to check on Levi’s growth.
For now, there is nothing that demands immediate attention, but we will be making many more visits to the neurology department. There is still no way to know for sure the obstacles that Levi will face, but we know who is able to overcome them all. God did amazing things while we were in the hospital and we are looking forward to what else he will do in Levi’s life. Thank you all for your prayers and support. The visits and the phone calls really help pass the time in the hospital. Thank you.
