neurologist appt.

Abe has an appointment with the neurologist today.  The same neurologist that delivered devastating news to us 4 months ago.  We left that day determined to never step foot in his office again in protest of his lack of sensitivity. (funny how that seemed like such a good idea) I completely forgot that they had automatically scheduled us for an appointment 4 months after that initial visit and we never thought to call and cancel.  We got one of those automated reminder calls yesterday and we have decided to go to the appointment.

We are so much stronger now, we have information now, we have the progress Abe has made with us now and we will see how it goes with him. We have heard that he is the best in the area for motor movement.  We would appreciate your prayers.  

Please head over to see how great Maggie is doing.  She is home!  Thank you Lord that the surgery went well.  The Oatsvall family needs our continued prayers.

Continue to pray for little Abby.  She is in so much pain right now.

Oh Emily... huge prayers! I can't wait to see how it goes. And if he's a pompus heartless jerk this time, you'll walk away knowing you gave him a second shot! Only good can come out of it. Think positive!

Hi Emily
When Parker was born he had a Brachial Plexus injury to his right shoulder/arm, this left his right arm completely paralyzed for over 6 months. When we moved from Ohio back to Kansas City he was 14 months old and had regained some movement, Through daily therapy he was actually prefering to use it to feed himself, stack blocks, reach for things, etc. We were excited to take Parker to see this "world Famous" neurologist at the Children's Mercy Hospital. Befor ever examining Parker, this dr began to tell us that Parker would be left handed, while Parker sat right there on his floor stacking blocks up with his right arm. To say the least we were less than thrilled with this world famous neurologist, who the commented that he had never before seen a right BP kid that was right handed. Trust yourself as Abe's mom, and the Great Physician to heal Abe and guide you through therapy while HE works in Abe.

Yes, we are praying right now and will continue to do so! I think you're so smart for going to this appointment, even if the guy was a weenie. God's doing great things! Miss you and Moody somethin' fierce! xo

I am so proud of Abe and of you as his mom (sounds like I am 90). He is thriving! He will always have a special place in my heart. One day, when we can sit and have coffee...I will tell you all about my Zach and how many times he has surprised doctors. I did not know what idiopathic meant until Zach came long. Doctors are amazing human beings but they are not all knowing. We will always pray for you and Abe.

I wish the best Doctors also came with feelings!;)

praying emily!!!!
i know what it's like with "hard" doctors. the greatest thing is that we know who's REALLY in charge of Abe, and who REALLY knows how far Abe can go :).

Bethany said...

Praying! Praying! Praying! Why are some of the most heartless people put in the hands of the most fragile? Okay well I don't really know if he's heartless...maybe he was having a bad day when he saw you...but I've encountered some of the most in-compassionate people in the human/health service field.

Kim said...

You know I have walked this VERY journey with neurologists who offered no hope and a miracle boy who defined hope and beat all the odds because of the power of prayer. To God be the glory! Please call, email, or FB me if you ever need to vent, pray or compare notes. Abe is always in my prayers! Our God is Mighty to Save!

Thinking of you and hoping that wonderful things came from this visit.
