Austin's MRI Results  

Posted by Cyndi Lou in , ,

We awoke at 5 AM this morning, after very little sleep, to take Austin to the hospital for his MRI. The morning went very smoothly, much better than we expected, thanks in most part to many prayers going up on Austin's behalf! Thank you all SO MUCH for your prayers for Austin & our family today!! Many of you have encouraged us more than we can begin to say.

Austin did GREAT this morning during the entire process of being put to sleep, going to get the MRI, and waking up. He has not done well before waking up from anesthesia, so we were very anxious about that part. He did very well and only felt rough for about the first 25 minutes when waking up, but he was calm. By the time we had been back home for about 1/2 an hour, he was back to himself. We could sense the prayers going up on his behalf the entire time! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Also, we did receive a call from the doctor late this afternoon with the MRI results. Again, God has gone before us and prepared the way. He is faithful that way you know!! Though they DO still see the fluid build-up and pressure on his brain in 3 ventricular areas, the MRI DID NOT reveal any large mass or obstruction that could be causing the fluid build up and pressure. The doctor said that they saw nothing additional on the MRI to alarm them, other than a confirmation of what we saw last week. So, we are praising the Lord for that bit of good news!! Hallelujah!

Right now, we will wait 1 week before we see the neurosurgeon next Tuesday (04/21) at 10 AM CST in Birmingham. This is when we will find out more about our next steps and whether those steps include surgery to put in a shunt. Though we still do not have all the answers or reasons why, we are one step closer to finding out a resolution. And, our God already has ALL of the answers. We must simply trust His heart when we can't see where His hand is leading us. (Easier said than done sometimes.)

We are so grateful for amazing family and friends to lift up our son in prayer, as if he were your own! We love you so very much!! You are surely undeserved blessings in our lives! God is good all the time and all the time God is good! We will continue to wait on Him and praise Him while we wait. We indeed serve a God who can still move mountains!!

Hey, Cyndi...I don't know where I've been lately but I just saw your post tonight on FB with the link here to the results of your son's MRI. What in the world??? What happened??? Is there a post somewhere I can go read so I can get caught up w/o you having to tell the whole story again? I am SO sorry you guys are having to deal with this...You must be worried sick!
