On Friday when I was at the doctor with Corbin his appointment was going great! The doctor and I were chatting and laughing and talking about how cute Corbin is... ; ) Out of nowhere she got very serious and wouldn't look me in the eye. She noticed the measurement of Corbin's head on his chart and immediately remeasured it to confirm what the nurse wrote down. She started feeling his head and poking around... The doctor pulled out his growth chart and explained to me that his head was in the 25% when he was born and it had jumped to the 75% and that the rest of his body was consistently in the same percentile group, so his head was drastically changing and his body wasn't. Then she had me feel the top front portion of his head, the area right in front of his "soft spot". As soon as I put pressure on his head my heart sank!!!!! It was swollen and it felt as if there was a mass beneath the skin. It wasn't a bruise or anything like that...it was a strange feeling, almost like it was a "gooshy mass" under the skin. She then said that she was going to look at Devin's chart to she if maybe Devin had something similar as a baby and that she would be right back. She never came back! The nurse came in to give him his immunizations and then gave us the paperwork and "orders" for the CT scan that they had ALREADY scheduled for us. That evening when we were at my parent's house I had my mom and dad felt it and it they felt the same thing....
When we got the call from the doctor's office today with the results from the CT scan her words were "It came back negative...it is an empty void". As soon as Joe got off the phone and told me my mom and I were brought to tears! I immediately put pressure on that same spot the doctor had pointed out to me on Friday and there was NOTHING there!!!! All I could feel was his skull! I absolutely believe that God answered our prayers and healed Corbin!!! It would be easy for anyone to say "Oh, there was nothing wrong with him from the beginning"...but I will give all glory and credit to God!
We were so touched by the overwhelming amount of emails, comments, phone call, etc. expressing concern and offering prayer support for our sweet boy. I do believe that God tests our faith and I do believe that God uses these types of circumstances to teach great lessons. In this circumstance I realized just how much my faith and my relationship with God effects my children. I learned that there is so much more good in others than I realized. I learned that in an instant our world can be turned upside down and you have to love and appreciate those dear to you because we aren't promised tomorrow.
Hugs and kisses to all for bombarding heaven with prayers for Corbin!
Here is a picture of Corbin from his dedication with sweet Pastor Claunch!
This outfit was the same one that his grandfather, dad, uncle and borther wore for their christening/dedications
