Braden's Song and more tests

So we inch closer to a diagnosis, they do more tests and we had an MRS today (a spectroscopy MRI that looks closer at metabolic activity in the brain). And even should we get news we don't want, we will continue to pray for God's guidance, to give us wisdom to ensure we are carrying out His will for our little angel here on earth.

So while we wait for more answers, I thought I might post a little song I wrote for Braden after we came home from our trip to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. It's not professional nor fancy, just a mom singing a tune for her precious child.

"Braden's Lullaby"

Braden, Braden how was your day?
I hope that you had fun today
Now that we've had bath and play
It's time to take a moment to pray

Father, thank you for this day
I thank you for my health today
Thank you for my mom and dad
Loving them makes me glad

Thanks for friends and family too
I know that they pray to you
Thanks for blessings big and small
Bless us one, and bless us all

Braden, Braden how was your day?
I hope that you had fun today

More updates we hope to share later this week after our big hospital "family meeting" and follow-up meetings with some of the hospital administration.

We plan on having a NEW VENT for Braden very soon, but the transition may take a few weeks. Ugh. So pray we get to take our little guy home in time for Thanksgiving... won't it be just the thing we are most thankful for?? :-)

As always I am praying for you, your husband and your precious little Braden that God will grant you all strength, healing and peace. I also pray that God will give Bradens doctors wisdom. I wish that there was something more that I could do for you and you family...but please know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers.
