What a busy week this has been! There has been an abundance of good news (for a change). Why am I surprised that God provides and that prayer is powerful?! I know it, yet I can doubt.
I really needed good news as I have been feeling a bit discouraged as of late. Tuesday was my first special ed class with Bruce and the audiologist was there. We had been told by the Genetics clinic to test his hearing for multiple reasons. His right ear is fine but his left is not. At first the device would not register, then he failed 3 times, meaning he is full or partially deaf in his left ear.
This makes tons of sense, considering his refusal to nurse on the left breast, his lack of speech sounds, his drunk old man uncoordinated walk, and how easily he is frustrated. The Audiologist checked the device against her ears and mine to be sure it was operating correctly. Then she said perhaps he has extreme wax build up blocking his canal. So it is possible everything with his hearing is fine, but I need to see yet another specialist, as if I don't have enough appointments to go to.
So I'm ready for GOOD news since I feel a bit weighted down by burdens these days. I trust in God's purposes in all things, yet I've certainly been feeling discouraged, To feel anything but numb would be the equivalent of moving a mountain.
