Neurological Testing: Step One - The Consultation

As I complete the paperwork for Grant’s neurology appointment tomorrow (Tuesday, January 25th at 11am), I pray for strength, peace, and hope. There is no point in wondering why we have to go down this road – we are already traveling down it at full speed. With Grant’s diagnosis of hypotonia and Sensory Processing Disorder comes the knowledge that this must be done. This first appointment is a consultation; a time for the doctor to meet and get to know Grant. It will establish the course of action for the next few months and determine what tests will be done.
Please pray:
  • That I will have an alert mind to answer all the questions and cover all the concerns we have (I am still recovering the flu and a severe cold)
  • That Grant will be well rested for the appointment (he is also recovering from a bad cold and a double ear infection)
  • For wisdom & discernment for the doctor as to what tests will be beneficial for Grant
  • For peace with the decisions that will be made tomorrow and for the discoveries that may or may not be made through the testing
  • That God will continue to supply all of our needs – and that we have faith to trust Him and in His promises
  • and, above all, that God will be glorified
Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Psalm 16:5-8
