The last couple of days have been a little frustrating with Wesley. In the first couple of weeks of his life he made some enormous strides, but in the last few days it seems as though we have plateauted a little bit. Here is how it all went down. We meet with the doctor yesterday to follow up with a head ultrasound they did on Sunday. He basically explained that the blood that is in his head is still there. It has began to swell a little bit but nothing to be concerned. He can feel over 50 percent confident it will resolve it self, but we will have to wait and see. Our good doctor also explained that Wesley was going to get a third dose of the second round of neoprofen to close the PDA. For you sports fans keeping score at home this will be the end of his second dose. He told us they were going to repeat the echo cardiogram on Thursday to see if it has closed or not. So WE WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. We are getting a little tired of this phrase. It seems that we are spinning around in circles with Wesley and we are getting pretty dizzy. But it is the truth. it is a rough way to learn patience and a dependence on trusting in the Lord.
Yesterday Lucy and I meet a good friend for lunch. We left after having this frustrating conversation with our doctor. While we were in the car the radio was on, but the volume was very low. Low enough you could not hear the music. My radio in the car will scroll the title of the song across the display. It moves pretty quick between artist, title of song, and radio station. Lucy was looking at it and it seemed to get stuck for about a minute and the word that was on the screen was TRUST. It was an odd reminder that either something is wrong with my car or god was meeting us in that moment. Please pray that we will be able to trust that God has Wesley wrapped up tight in his arms. Even in the moments that we are waiting around to see something God is moving and working. Our trust has been shaking over the last few days but we are moving towards Christ to meet us in this situation.
