Cannon recently had an MRI done, and God protected Him through being sedated and the 1 ½ hr long test. Today, the neurologist said he looked like a completely different baby than just a few months ago (when she saw him shortly after his seizures and the blood clot). She is pleased with his progress, alertness and interaction, and happy nature, and said the MRI shows that there is now blood circulation where there was once no flow of blood in the vein where the blood clot had formed. She expects he will be off his seizure medication at the end of the summer. The hematologist will determine when he will be off his blood thinners once they compare the two MRI’s and determine if the blood clot has completely resolved.
Thank you for praying! And, here are some things you can continue to pray for Cannon.
He could still be prone to seizures, however has not had any since he was in the hospital (for which we are very grateful).
He will be evaluated Friday for some needed physical therapy, as the neurologist said there is still the possibility of him developing some form of cerebral palsy or like-issues that may delay or affect development due to the brain hemorrhage. We are praying for God’s continued healing and protection as his brain grows and heals. God has a plan for Cannon and we are excited to see what He will do with this little life!
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation will praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works…The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.
Grateful for His tender mercies,
The Belue family
