After spending time with Lillian's speech therapist, and she in turn speaking with our ENT, it has been decided that we will go forward with the V and E in August. Our ENT plans to speak with Dr Plastics and pick his brain. She aslo feels if we get the V and E done, we can go to him again with the results. We never do things the easy way, do we? Course, in this walk, I'm not sure there is an "easy way". I think I've found some peace, either way. It is par for the course. It just takes me a day or two to absorb the initial shock of things. I always have hope, no matter how disappointed I am. God works it all out in his time. My lowest moments are my strongest times in Him.
In her speech time yesterday, Mrs. Speech found out if she held her finger under Lillian's nose, Lillian could make a very clear S sound. It was AMAZING! It goes directly to evidence that her plalate needs more work to function properly. As hard as news comes that I'm not prepared for, I have unbelievable joy in just hearing the "ssssssssssss" singing from her teeth.
Sometimes I wonder if I should update on her blog as soon as I am able to, because I so don't want to sound like Debbie Downer, BUT, it is my hope that no matter what someone is going through, there is ALWAYS hope. If there is someone just beginning this journey, perhaps they will find comfort here. I write what is REAL, what is happening here in my insignificant life and hope it brings glory to God, because I know it all works for His good because I love Him. That is my hope.
