Solomon, big brother, & I have been in Cincinnati since Tuesday. We hit the floor running early Wed. morning for testing...in fact the entire trip will contain LOTS of testing and bowel management week. For those of you new to my blog here is where we first shared about Solomon's medical needs. Many have asked why Cincinnati and all I can say is that they are the ONLY Pediatric Colorectal team in the world. They are the absolute BEST and have by far the most experience and knowledge in this field. We wanted to give Solomon the best care and best chance at successful bowel management as possible. The Lord clearly paved the way for this trip and we are excited to be here.
The purpose of this trip was to get a clear understanding of what was done in China surgically and what the prognosis was for the future. There are many complications that can come with a child born with imperforate anus including a tethered spinal cord, kidney issues, incontinence, etc.
Today we received the most amazing, MIRACULOUS news...news that left the dr. and staff in shock and pure happiness. You see...our precious boy is only the FOURTH child in ALL of the children they've seen adopted from China that does NOT need a corrective redo surgery!!! A precious little boy that has been held in the palm of the Lord's hand from the very beginning...a little miracle that WILL be able to obtain continence...a little boy that from a medical perspective was not going to be able to have normal functioning bowels...TODAY we have been told otherwise.
What a journey this has been...absolutely in continual awe of all that the Lord continues to do for our little man!!!! We will be continuing with more testing next week with the urology team and we are hopeful for more good news! Thank you so much for covering our family in prayer!!!,
