We are sure those of you following Wyatt’s story are wondering…did he get the appointment with infectious disease yesterday? Unfortunately he did not. His doctor and nurse tried everything they could to get him in somewhere yesterday. As his mom, I did to. I literally begged the doctor on the phone to squeeze him in and told him my heart. This whole process is so humbling. Wyatt’s doctor was able to get him in with Swedish infectious disease on Monday BUT the doctor there did say that Children’s hospital has done much more research, has better resources, and will give better treatment than at Swedish. At Swedish, they usually do not give the anti viral medication past 4 months of age. He said to keep our appointment on Friday, the 7th, at Children’s. I am so thankful for the doctor’s honesty.
We will face some very big decisions at our next appointment. The antiviral meds have some big risks. Please pray for God’s clear direction on what is best for Wyatt and his health.
We have a BIG week next week. Monday Wyatt gets an MRI of his brain. He will be going under anesthesia. They will be checking to see if any parts of his brain have been damaged by CMV. This is a scary one for us. Please pray for good results and normal brain development. Please also pray for peace for us as parents as we wait for the results and for God’s hand over Wyatt as he goes under anesthesia.
Tuesday Wyatt sees an opthamologist to get his eyes checked.
Friday is his Infectious Disease appointment to see if anti viral meds will be helpful.
I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!
Brad, Amy, Austin, and Wyatt
