A Long Road (An Update on Ashlyn)

We are a little emotionally drained at our house.
We are grateful that Ashlyn was able to get an appointment with the specialist this week, considering the waiting list is 5 months long!

To make a long story short, after a long day of of appointments and blood tests, the specialist confirmed that Ashlyn is developmentally 6 months behind. At this point, the doctor is unsure of the reason for this delay so he is trying to get some answers through blood tests.

Ashlyn will start 4 sessions of therapy, two at the children's hospital, and two at our home.

We might have a long road ahead of us and probably many ups and downs along the way. Obviously, our hope is that the therapy will help close the gap in her delays.

We are still feeling a little uneasy and overwhelmed, but we are just trying to take things one day at a time for now.

Thanks for your continued prayers.

Sweet Jamie, Your family is in my prayers often and on my mind. I will pray for your sweet girl. I'm having my 8 year old tested for a mood disorder and all though it is frightening, I also want answers. Thank you Lord that our little girls are being held by you.
