Since Lucy's meeting with the neurosurgeon in mid-February, and including today's appointments (within a one month's time span), she will have seen SIX specialists, had x-rays, ekg and an echo cardiogram! She has been such a brave and compliant little girl! Of all the specialists visits and tests, today's procedure I have been anticipating the most and a bit anxious about. However, knowing that anxiety produces nothing good and believing that PRAYER is what our Father God has loving asked us to do, I'm coming to Lucy's friends and family and asking you to pray for Lucy today. She needs to have a slightly invasive procedure done (for a urodynamic study) that could potentially cause Lucy some trauma. We're asking you to join with us and pray against any form of trauma this test could have on Lucy's little mind, pray for peace over her and that she will be able to "be still" so the test can be done quickly and accurately.
A silly/sweet story to share - (Keeping in mind that just over six months ago, Lucy Kim had never known the love and security of having a Daddy). In preparation for today's procedure, we had the not so fun job of needing to give LK two enemas! Ugh! While Lucy tends to be a Mama's girl, it was touching to see that having to undergo this type of " tough stuff" - she really wanted (read that as cried to have Daddy with her too!) the strong and comforting arms of her Daddy around her!
April 3rd, we will make a return trip to Hershey Medical Center and meet again with the neuro surgeon to discuss the results of all of the specialist visits and tests and schedule a date for the spinal un-tethering surgery.
Thank you for loving Lucy and praying for her!
