Too tired to think of a catchy post title...

Hi Friends,

I can't believe I haven't updated since Christmas.... I've started a few different updates but life would always get in the way and now I have a whole lot of drafts sitting in my post selections... maybe I'll finish them and post lots of posts in January... or maybe I'll just start from scratch and try to get better on posting more regularly. Besides blogging to update our many eager readers (all 3 of you :) I want to use this blog as a way to journal our journey through life... and I don't want to forget anything, so I better get moving. Either way, shortly you will be inundated with lots of pictures from Gabe's 1st Christmas!

But tonight as I sit here with a nervous and anxious spirit, I've come to ask you a request. Tomorrow is MRI day for Gabe and while it's just an MRI, it's still an MRI. And Gabe will still be sedated and I have to give up all the control I hold so tightly too and place him solely in the hands of our Father while the tests are done. Giving up control is never easy for me while usually giving my problems to God isn't too difficult. This time I'm having trouble with both. But then again I've never been a mother before either.

However difficult it is to give up control and give my troubles to God, I'm going to do it! It's the best thing for Gabe so, it's the best thing for me. And while I give up control and give it ALL to God would you do something for me. Pray for Gabe's MRI: pray that he sleeps peacefully and wakes up quickly and without complications. Pray for the anestisiologist who will put my little man to sleep and for the technician that will do the test, that she does it correctly and the images taken provide all the answers Gabe's doctors are looking for. Selfishly, I'm also praying that the MRI finds no evidence of schizencephaly and everything looking how supposed to look. But more than that, I'm praying that in the future, Gabe is able to use his schizencephaly and the issues resulting for His glory; that people see God's miracles in the life of Gabe.

Thanks for the prayers. We should get the results on Thursday so I'll update again then or maybe sooner :)

Love, Meredith

I love Gabe's cute little hat from Etsy.
Isn't he handsome?

Prayers are with you. It is tough when our children have to do things like this and you can't do anything but sit there. God give you and little Gabe peace today.
