I was convinced that Isaac's xray was going to be the one to show something serious. I fully expected that McKenna was going to be just fine and that Isaac would be promptly sent off to the hospital because of his pneumonia. Wrong on both counts. While Isaac's xray did show pneumonia, the doctor felt that things were getting better, not worse. We were relieved to know that we were able to treat his pneumonia at home effectively. There are times when we feel confident that our on the job medical knowledge is adequate to care for our medically fragile kids, and then there are times when I think "Who are we kidding..we don't know what we are doing..."
So, I made it through half of the first day of the conference--it was wonderful! I have so much to share about what I learned. I also was able to have an actual in person conversation with several fellow bloggers who have feel like old friends--and they were even more incredible in person!
So, I am reminded today that God does not call those who have it all together to adopt and to parent children with special needs--he calls those of us who often feel unprepared, inadequate and desperate for His help...I guess that is why He called me.
