Is Google my friend?

So kind of a rough day. Okay ... let's just say it was more than rough!! Little Mister's genetic testing we did in April finally came in ... only 12 weeks later. So, I wanted the results ... but then I didn't. After waiting seven years to find out an answer to his developmental delays and struggles I was not really sure I wanted her to read what they had found.

Turns out it wasn't bad news ... it wasn't really any news at all. They found a difference in one of his chromosomes (#22) that needs more testing. Now they will test us and try to put the pieces all together to find an answer. It will be a long road. Not a bad one ... just long.

So what does this mean ... who really knows. As the darkness set in for the night I watched him sleep. He is still my sweet baby and I still love him. And as God proved to me one more day ... he is exactly the way he was made. Perfect!!!

But ... as I walked down stairs I fell into the old trap. You know the one ... look it up on Google. Arm yourself with knowledge. I am here to tell you ignorance is bliss ... and I chose to be ignorant. God will reveal to me in his perfect timing anything I need to know about him. But for right now I am going to let the last 12 weeks of stress wash over me and let it go. That and finally get a good nights peaceful sleep!

Because that is all I am called to do. That and kiss my babies and pray for them. That is the kind of knowledge I need ... not Mr. Google.

Good night and thanks for letting me share!

  1. I think you're smart not to Google it. That gets so overwhelming and sometimes scary! You will find out everything you need to know in due time!

  2. Yes, God will reveal everything in His own time. That's one of the things that is so amazing about God because he makes stress so unnecessary by telling us to give our problems to Him. So, count your blessings and put your trust in Him. I'll be praying that the doctors have the knowledge to put everything together. Have a fabulous day!

  4. Oh Google can be so bad. We have a running joke about that in my household. I swear it only scares me half to death when I look things up. You're right ignorant is bliss!

  5. I agree with you 100% Google is scary and it is best not to stress yourself any further by checking out the what-ifs. Enjoy your son and smile, knowing that he is Perfect.

  7. I'm glad that you were strong and decided not to go googling. It's hard not to worry. Give that sweetie pie an extra hug tonight from all of us out here in blogland.

  8. Nothing good ever comes of my asking Dr. Google! For me at least, I just take the info my daughter's dr gives me and keep doing what's best for her and what works. Which I am sure you do also. Sometimes the more digging I do, the worse off I feel.

    You're doing a great job, mama. Keep it up.
