And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Update on My Man

Hey Prayer Warriors!

We went to the doc yesterday for B & Me and received some updates.

In regard to B, he is a Rockstar!!!   When we left his test the doc that performed it said that he is "brilliant!"   Our neuro yesterday said the same thing!  They said he is truly above average and performed off the charts.  That's my man!

The doc performing the test & the neuro also stated that they did see "deficits" that made him normal!  Thus, he didn't score as high on certain areas of the test.  Those areas are indicative of the damage that they are seeing on the MRI.  However, they said that his "low" scores were actually normal!  Meaning that he scored in those areas what most "smart" people would score.  That was considered a deficit since he's brilliant!!!

So, the end result is that our neuro wants to run a few labs, looking for other things, and she wants to do an EEG (the test that I have done all the time with the electrodes attached to your head).  Otherwise, we have a follow-up appt next week with the doc that performed the test.  At that appt. she will be able to give us the entire report and then some "exercises."

Exercises-as we understand it, he will meet with this doc frequently to do mental exercises to help strengthen what has started to atrophy.  So, call it brain rehab maybe...Imagine if you broke your finger and had to do exercises to get it back in shape.  Then, imagine if you had to have your finger amputated and learn to use the other four to do what five were doing.  As I understand it, this is as if he lost a finger.  So, we're having to let the other four learn how to do the work of five. 

We'll tell you more once we understand it.  However, those are the basics as we understand them!
