Update on Micah

On Wednesday, Danni, Micah and I traveled to Seattle. We were able to stay with Danni's relatives that own a town house in Seattle not far from Seattle Children's Hospital.
It turns out that Micah's ulna is formed correctly. It did not appear complete on the x-ray because portions of his ulna are still cartilage.
The Dr also said there is a "very high probability" that Micah's right elbow will correct itself just as his left elbow has. The Dr. attributed the popping to "loose ligaments" . Given this symptom, the feel of Micah's skin and some family history the Dr would like us to see a geneticist to see if Micah has a general problem with his connective tissue (which can manifest as heart and other organ trouble later in life).
In order to make sure Micah's elbow is forming correctly and to see the geneticist, we will be heading to Seattle in late January. We pray that the all goes well and that the passes are clear.

Thank you to all who prayed for the little guy.

This evening Micah enjoyed his first concert and checked out Lincoln Brewster's moves on the guitar while wearing his Harley hat. He was also fond of the cool colors the lights the video screens made. He expressed his appreciation by drooling, kicking and talking while chewing on his hands.

I will continue to pray for your little guy.
Nothing reminds us that we have no control as much as our kids.
