this Thursday, Jan. 26, we will be headed to Birmingham to see Dr. Percy, Rett's Specialist. if you think of us, could you please pray for this trip for several reasons...
in a recent meeting, we were informed that brooke has been falling alot; she's falling getting out of vehicles and falling on flat services. i was a bit alarmed by this. her gait has always been a bit awkward and "off"...running into things when she walks. however, i've never known her to just fall out of the blue. this of course, has raised concern for the Rett's Syndrome she carries. there are 4 stages to Rett's (part of the autism spectrum). For more information about Rett's you can go here: http://www.rettsyndrome.org/. we are hoping she isn't leaping into stage 4.
the trip itself has always proven to be draining. driving 4 hours there/4 hours back and brooke not understanding the whys, whens, and hows of the day. i am praying the Lord will give her peace so that Dr. Percy can accurately examine her legs/walk/gait so we can give her the help she needs.
also, this past week brooke was diagnosed with a yeast infection. i'm sure this is uncomfortable for her. your prayers would be appreciated.
