Today was a BIG day. Wyatt got hearing aids today! His hearing aids came in early on Monday (they weren’t supposed to arrive until November 7th) and there was a cancellation with audiology for today. This is unusual for this department but I think God opened that up just for Wyatt. 🙂 It was super exciting for Brad and I. We got it all on video too. Wyatt definitely responded to the hearing aids so we know he is getting sound!! When they first turned on, his eyes just got really big. The best part was when he heard his own voice. He thought it was super cool! His voice all of sudden became a little lower and louder. It was amazing. WHAT A GIFT! I never really understood what people with hearing aids go through until now. God is sure opening our eyes to many new doors and opening our hearts at the same time. And I must mention he looks adorable in them!
We also got results back and Wyatt tested positive for CMV. We are thankful it’s the better of the two and also thankful that the hearing loss is not genetic. We don’t want our little ones to have to worry about that when they get married and have kids one day. Thank you all for your prayers. However, Wyatt is not in the clear. The virus attacked him when I was pregnant. It’s extremely dangerous only during pregnancy and would appear as the common cold to anyone else. It is the cause of the hearing loss, enlarged spleen, etc. But there is also concern for his eyes/eyesight and brain function.
So where do we go from here? Wyatt will be getting an MRI of the brain on Monday. He will be going under anesthesia and as his momma this is a little scary but I know he will be in good hands at Children’s. He also needs to see an opthamologist to see if there has been any damage to his eyes. There is also a possibility that antiviral med’s via IV will help stop this virus from doing any more damage….i.e. his hearing loss could get worse than it already is. This is where we need lots of prayer and a miracle from God. He needs to get in to see an infectious disease doctor at Children’s TOMORROW. They only do this sort of thing on Friday’s so if they can’t squeeze him in tomorrow, we have to wait a whole week. And TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE right now that he gets on the med’s ASAP.
Psalm 34: 17-19
“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the Lord delivers him out of them all.”
1. Get in to see an infectious disease doctor TOMORROW
2. That God would cover Wyatt’s body and protect him from further damage of the virus….protect his eyes, his brain and his hearing loss from becoming worse.
3. That Brad and I would entrust Wyatt to God and fully lean on our Heavenly Father to take great care of Wyatt and protect his little body.
4. Prayer for HEALING!! We believe God can heal Wyatt in an instant! Please never forget to pray this too.
