This morning we got to see the MRI results. The doctor told us there is no damage that they see, however, brain damage can sometimes take almost 6 months to show up on an MRI.
Even though he has made incredible progress, there are still a lot of things he needs to do to heal and develop. He had occupational and physical therapists checking him out this morning. They are currently concerned that he still seems stiff in some of his movements as well as how he holds his hands. The doctor confirmed this and added that his suck and gag reflexes are not in sync. So we are going to have to take a break from bottles. However, the lacatation people are here to help Heidi do non-nutritive sucking so he doesn't have to coordinate suck, swallow, breathe.
It looks like he will be in the NICU for a while yet. A social worker stopped by to discuss insurance stuff already - that was just so much fun. It also looks like we will be in for a lot of future doctor's appointments, scans, PTs and OTs and more. Not sure how we are going to manage all that, but God has gotten us this far, so why not a little farther. Same thing with Edmund healing - God has allowed for so much healing...why not a little more.
Please continue to keep is in your prayers because we still have a very long journey ahead...especially Edmund.
Dennis, Heidi and Edmund
