For starters, A had her speech therapy assessment. After two hours of testing, a developmental therapist and speech therapist came out and spoke to me. They informed me that while A is on the border of having a speech impediment, and that they are going to suggest she be approved for the program, she is testing at the understanding of a 5 1/2-6 yr old. She just turned 4. The speech therapist went on to tell me that they believe if they can get her articulations corrected, so that she will communicate with others, we will find that we have an exceptionally smart child. That she answered questions and performed challenges they asked her to do during the two hour test, and they were pleasantly surprised she was able to do them because they would not expect her to be able to do them until a much older age.
Secondly... I, FINALLY, got to turn my heart monitor in to the cardiac center. YAH!!! No more wearing that bulky, very annoying thing. I meet with the dr. next Friday to discuss their findings, and where we go from here.
Now...the biggest news of all...Breanna's bloodwork was done and her A1C came back at......................................
Thank you, JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God is Great!
Basically, what this means is NO INSULIN! YAH! I still have to continue meal planning with her, and take fasting glucose readings once per day, and get A1C's done every three months but NO INSULIN!!!!!!!!!!! -at least for the time being.
I cried. Thank you Lord. This was.THE.BEST.NEWS!
I could not be any happier right now.
If her readings become irratic, or the next A1C is elevated we will have to start insulin, but not right now.
I'd love to write a long post and go on and on about the joy I feel right now, but honestly, me....the talker of talkers....is pretty speechless! And in awe of God's work!!!!!!!!!!!!
