Huge praise!

just a quick update- I don't have much time:)
Abigail's CAT scan came back normal! Praise the Lord! The neurologists said he was very surprised and pleased to see the results- he thought she either had cereberal palsey, brain tumors, or improper fusing of the skull so severe that they would have to crack her skull (do brain surgery) in order to repair it. Thank you for praying- the Lord has heard our prayers! We took her to the neurosurgeon yesterday to discuss a helmet to correct the plagiocephaly (assymetry of her skull). He didn't recommend a helmet- but wanted her to get a MRI of her brain and spine. He (and her physical therapists) think her back arching is severe and concerning. He wants to check for tumors on her spine, or several other things (they don't like to discuss all the possibilities with you). Please pray for the MRI (procedure itself is a risk- they have to give her anesthesia and knock her completely out which is scary on a baby), and for great results.
Aiden has been screaming in pain for over a week now. What started out several weeks ago as constantly fussy has progressed into completely inconsolible almost all of the time. I know he's in pain I just can't figure out what is hurting him! Please pray for wisdom and discernment as a parent. I know the Lord gives us intuition as mommies- and I'm definitly in need of it now! The dr.'s can't seem to figure it out. Could be either refulx issue, GI issue, or an infection/sickness. His apnea monitor has started going back off again (and it didn't go off for nearly an entire month!) so that is definitly a concern. Please pray for him.
Thank you so much to all who have committed to pray for us. We have felt the Lord's presence all around us and it's so encouraging to have so many bearing our burden's with us. I can't wait for you all to meet our little miracles one day!
Lastly about life, the fall is starting and Ben is super busy. We are trying to figure out what this semester will look like for us, but with all the dr. appts and unknowns- i'm just taking it one day at a time! Both babies have gotten to where they smile sometimes and make eye contact. They are so fun- I love them sooo much!
