Brayden April 20, 2007 email

Hello all! We just wanted to thank everyone for the outpouring of love, prayer, and concern for our baby boy. We know that God is sovereign and has a specific plan for Brayden and his life. It is not by accident that we have been blessed to have him in our family. It is only by God's grace that Carrie & I could be blessed with such an opportunity.

Here is a brief run down of events:Yesterday, Fair Oaks Hospital performed a head ultrasound to see if Brayden has Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum. In the report provided by the radiologist, it suggests complete absence of the corpus callosum with colpocephaly and mild hydrocephalus. If you understand that, you are really intelligent. Copy and paste the links below into your browser and you can read a description of ACC.

The radiologist recommended an MRI of the head to gain more precise information. We received a recommendation from friends and were able to make an appointment for May 2nd. The neurologist on May 2nd will review the head ultrasound previously performed. This neurologist that specializes in newborn/infants/children wants the MRI w/sedation to be performed at Children’s Hospital in DC. Pray that the Lord will provide an opening for Brayden to receive this MRI as quickly as possible. We are also seeking medical analysis and other tests from the cardiologist, etc. to view the organs of his body and to see if they are fully developed.

We were able to take Brayden home yesterday evening and he continues to feed, cry and do all the normal baby things.We will keep you updated on his progress and as we receive information.

In Him,Jeremy & Carrie
