Today they did an MRI on Garren. I was dreading the moment when I would have to hear what they would say about it. They had warned us beforehand that the MRI would probably not reveal anything new - that it would just give them a better picture of what they were already sure had happened. Sure enough, they were right.
The MRI confirmed that the bleeding had caused the damage to Garren's brain, just as they had suspected. What does that mean? Fortunately, or unfortunately, nothing new.
The doctors' goal is to help keep Garren healthy by doing the work of the brain for him, allowing his brain to rest, giving it the best opportunity to heal. Time is our greatest friend right now. I told the doctor we have plenty of time. They do not want to do anything that might cause stress, so we will just wait. How long? It's impossible to know right now.
I am home with Kelsey watching Tinker Bell. We are having a great time together. I will spend the night in my own bed, then head back to see Garren tomorrow.
We had our quiet time together today. I read Exodus 19 & 20, and Psalm 73 this morning. This evening before I left we read Mark 6. Each time I pray with Garren. The end of Mark 6 says that the people implored Jesus that they might have their sick touch the fringe of his garment, so that they might be healed. I implored Jesus tonight, that he would touch Garren, and bring healing to his brain.
Thank you for continuing to pray.
