Balance Issues

I finally got a chance to talk to Rebekah's ENT late last week. I called him again on Thursday (since I hadn't heard from him in over a week) and he called me back shortly. He didn't have Rebekah's chart in front of him. There are many things that can cause balance issues - fluid on the ears or some brain based issues. He thought (although he couldn't be sure) that Rebekah's reports indicated some possible brain issues that might be the reason for the balance problems. I really didn't want to hear that. He wanted to see her latest two MRIs so that he can look for other possible causes for the balance issues before we make any decisions about what to do. So, I called Emanuel and had them send him a copy of the latest two MRIs. They should have gone out Friday, so hopefully we'll hear from him soon. Meanwhile, we wait... And try to do it patiently... There is likely no simple solution. I hate that!

I'm trying to push hard on potty training. It has been difficult. They are both pretty hit or miss. I wish it were a much easier process. We just have to take things one day at a time.

Right now, we are having a heat wave - our thermometer at home said 110 today. Very hot and very miserable. Tomorrow is expected to be about the same. Ugh! The weekend with temperatures in the 80s sounds pretty good right now.

Thanks for checking in.

I heard about Rebekah awhile back through a friend's blog. I've been checking in on her ever since. She is always in our prayers and I just wanted to tell Rebekah hello from Texas. We are praying for her all the time. She is one amazing little girl!
