"For I know the plans I have for you" that is the phrase I have had going through my head all day long. God is in control, and even though right now I do not understand, He is in control.
As many of you know Emma was taken to VCH for testing today, but not all of you knew it was hearing testing. For the past few years we have been trying to get her speech up, and it has been a slooooowwww process, but many people thought it was due to her trying to walk. However, recently we finally got her ENT to try a behavioral hearing test and she failed. So today we went in for a ABR to get a better look at what her ears hear and how. The news was not good.
Emma has significant hearing difficulties in both ears. That explains so much, but having answers many times lead to more questions. We will be starting down a road that is unknown and will be long and difficult as we try to help Emma gain the most she can in the hearing department. We have an appt soon in a new clinic that will help us start this long road and will share more as we learn and process all the information we are recieving. Emma is lucky that there is great technology to help her!
At this time we ask that you please pray for our entire family as we are all in shock and having to process this difficult answer. Emma is doing well tonight and I feel will respond well to whatever we throw at her. She is so strong and so full of life. She is my hero!! Thank you for your support and prayers. God is in control, and like my favorite song right now says "Sometimes blessing come from teardrops"
