WITT'S WELL CHECK

Witt had a great first visit to the pediatrician. Yesterday Dr. Lange checked him out from head to toe. On many levels he is just a normal little baby boy! Melanie had a couple of questions for the doctor and she assured them these were just "normal baby things." Our immediate goals are to be sure that Witt continues to gain weight. He will be weighed again in 7 days. Dr. Lange wants Witt to go to the urologist and neurologist. Melanie will be making these appointments soon but it still may take a little time to get the referrals and appointments. From the pediatrician's point-of-view Witt's first well check-up shows he is doing well but he needs to be checked by the specialists too. It was a very specific answer to prayer that Dr. Lange didn't talk at all about the "what ifs." He just talked about the here and now, about what we know to be true in this moment. Please be praying for Witt's kidneys (one has reflux and the other could have some blockage) and for any possible issues with his brain. All of our lives are in God's hand, we just fool ourselves into thinking we are in control. We put on "blinders" but God has seen fit to be sure we never have blinders on where Witt is concerned. Without a doubt, God is in control and its in this wonderful knowledge that we find our peace!

I know from experience with our foster son (we received him when he was 3 days old) about the "what ifs" that can be reported. It makes it difficult to keep focused on the here and now. Placing our trust in God gives us hope and peace!

I'm so glad this appointment was encouraging rather than discouraging!
